    Default HELP! Can anyone tell me who makes this..

    I used to play for my county around 10 years ago, and I had a racquet that I played better with than any other.. I believe it was entirely down to the head design, which was oddly shaped, but completely suited me! I'm now thinking of taking up the sport again, and I can't find even a sniff of a Racquet with this head shape! Please excuse the crude diagram below, but it gives you the idea.. Can anyone help? Thanks!

    No, and no..

    It was made by Prince or Wilson, I'm almost sure it was one of those two..

    It was a conventional racquet, just with an oddly shaped head..

    I'm guessing your talking about the Prince More XL+?

    Nope, none of the above.. It's exactly the shape of the image I crudely drew in Paint..

    I guess they're not made any more.. Real shame, I played much better with it!

    I do vaguely remember a racket like that but in the meanwhile this should have at least a similar string pattern http://forzabadnimtonrackets.com/fzbrti40.html

    Perhaps this one, at least that looks a lot like the one I vaguely recall (being not as wide at the bottom as in your diagram above):

    That's almost it! I was almost positive it was a Wilson! It was quite a bit more squared off, but essentially that's the type..

    I think they stopped making this sort of racket head shape simply because it looks weird. But I bet you had a good experience using it because the frame looks like it would have a larger sweet spot compared to the typical isometric head. I'm sure there's a racket out there that doesn't look like this but plays similarly or maybe even better. Do you remember in which area of your game were noticably better compared to the current racket that you're using?
