yesterday at my local play it again sports, i found myself fondling over a Wilson Ultra Mid, for only 7.99 at that! i was excited and bought it right away, i'll post pictures later. that same day, i was hitting with the frame and my god it was soo demanding, the sweetspot is so small and hard to get and the racket was killing my elbow, but such a pleasure to hit with, i'm thinking about selling it, how much do you think i could get for it? or should i jsut keep it and use it as a training racket.

I went to my local Play it Again Sports shop all they had was garbage racquets from K-mart and Walmart. None of these treasures I hear about on these boards.

haha because iono it's just hitting with an old racket with a small head or something of the sort, i love hitting with my T3000 and pulling a big serve with it, i know my arm should get use to the Ultra, but i'm still not sure if i should sell it?

haha no it's the original ultra mid, the one with the metal PWS and somewhat tear shaped head

I think the original Ultra only came in standard head size. Right?

It's nothing special, IMO, and won't net you much $$. You can keep it around for kicks, if you want, don't expect more than $15-20 for it. If you really like it, it might be a nice lead in to the PS85

You might find a collector on the auction site. The Ultra is considerably more flexible than the boron-containing Ultra II, I've heard.

I love the riveted 'PWS weights' on that thing - so basic and primitive... and noisy when they loosen.

yeah i found that weird, the head size is beyond me, so hard to actually get it on the string bed, and on the sweet spot at that! haha wonder if federer could hit winners off with this racket? =P

Perhaps he's into bondage as well.

or not? just the challenge of trying to hit the sweet spot of such a small head is a pleasure though, and it was fun, provided another challenge.

Weiners, used that racquet for 5 yrs, upgraded to the Ultra 2 after breaking the Ultra at the weights and being sent an Ultra 2 under warrantee. Just use it and be happy there are lighter bats with larger heads now. The Galaxy was the largehead version.

Its an awesome racket if you have accurate strokes and can handle the weight. I know a tour player from the 60s that still plays this racket and he can hit flat blasts that would be hard for current tour players to get. Unfortunately, most collectors and players like the U2 version.

I agree - and same goes for the local Goodwill stores. Nothing! I envy you who manage to score these great racquets for a few bucks.
