Look no further than the Pro Kennex 5G PSE!! $140 from tennis warehouse.

****'s also a good source...

yonex r32 in the vintage section on tenniswarehouse for 99.99
or as mentioned........check ****, there are numerous racquets over 12+ ounces that should do you good.

personally i dont call 140 bucks a good deal, but thats just me....

heavy is a very relative term, could you give us some sort of idea of what it means to you?

I guess compared to a LM Prestige Mid for $200, it seems like $140 is a good deal. :wink:

You might also want to check out a PS 6.0 85 or a PK Laver Heritage Type C for $130.

you just arent looking hard enough then, cause i know where to find LM prestiges way less than 200 new.....lol. so its all relative as to what you are willing to pay because i dont feel like there is any jump in quality from a lowered price frame around 100 dollars to ones bumping 200 as of recent with the player's frames. especially when you can find the high priced ones for less than what a lot of big sites offer. news flash.... tennis warehouse prices are far from the lowest for many frames. if you spend 15 mins researching on the net for a racquet you could save anywhere from 10 to almost 80 dollars sometimes. hell, the proshops have even become competitive recently, and they are willing to wheel and deal with you a lot of the time too.
they sell laver type c's for 110 at the proshop nearest me, and various net places have 6.0 85's for under 110.
shop around, keep the market competitive, the only reason companies can charge 200 dollars for a frame is because uninformed buyers keep paying it. it's only a consumers' market if the consumers actually make the companies feel their financial woes of a 200 dollar racquet that is made cheaper than the apparent better quality 6.0 85 ...........cough~ncodetour~cough

Head pro tour 280's are generally available around 50-70 new. No finer racket for handling pace.

Where can you find new PT 280s? I called one of the place in the back of Tennis magazine and they only have small grip sizes. I need a 4 5/8ths.

Indy Tennis what number did you call in that tennis magazine cause a smaller grip would be helpful.

g-star seems to fit your description and at 50 $ its the best deal tw has

Just go through the back of Tennis Magazine. There's only one shop still carrying the Pro Tour 280. I hate to mention the shop on TW's website, but it starts with an H.

Do a google search and you'll find a place or two I think. Iprestige midplus is also very similar and should be available pretty cheap now that they're discontinued. Check ****.
