    I think I might be using the oldest racket around, on a regular basis. A made-in-China, Shanghai, Aeroplane model 515 wooden racket. I would normally use this racket for my first couple of games (doubles) before switching over to more recent composite/ graphite rackets like Wilson, Victor, Yonex ones.

    It will be very rare to see a pro using old models. If he/she is sponsored, I doubt if he/she can use his/her preferred older models.
