I am buying a new Wilson nBlade from my brother's tennis academy for $100, and I was wondering if this is a fair price for an academy sponsored by Wilson.

Also, how much would a college player's get for their Wilson nBlade?

Seems like a good price seen as they are 159 on TW. If a colledge player was sponsored they would either get them for free or heavily discounted.

i think that price is wonderfull - it's about a 35% discount compared to tw price, which is lower anyway than the suggested retail. good deal, congratulations.

When I went to Germany I found a place that sells tennis rackets and thought I would take a peek. If anyone knows anything about the exchange rate, it was roughly .66 Euros for 1 US Dollar. With that said, I found an nBlade for 280 EUROS!!! I was so shocked and just proceeded to walk out. I think thats $466 US Dollars. I know this sounds rediculous but I will put my life on it that what I'm saying is true. So I would definitely say that 100 US Dollars would be perfectly fine. BTW, I play the nBlade and thats how I happened to notice how odd it was.

the blades have a suggested retail price in germany of euro 220 - unstrung. so, probably with a fancy gut string and the labour you might really get to 280 euros. but you can get them for 185 euro from discounters if you don't care to ask for a deal.

drhopz,
how's your game growing?

Pretty good, I've been trying to find a perfect grip. Switching from eastern to continental. That liquid arm tip really helps with serve. Call me a sissy, but i still feel that Nblade is a bit heavy on serves. For some reason, my friend's Six-one90 feels lighter. I think it's because the Nblade is only 2headlite.

drhopz,
yes, with that close to even balance it's a little bit harder to accelerate on that wrist snap needed on serves. practice gets it done - i have a 1pt headheavy balance on mine (leaded up in the hoop) and get some nice kick on it too, but every now and then i do some 50-70 serves, and most of the times i play for practice i just do second serves (kick mostly). that continental grip on serves is the most versatile one - you can hit flat, slice, kick with it. once you got it going with the continental, you could try a slight backhandgrip (inbetween continental and eastern bh) to get more kick to it, but that will work only after having established the continental one. keep on going and have fun.

yea that's a really nice price, I wonder what gives for that price. I saw one for a "spring sale" today at my local shop at $139.95.

That's a pretty good price. I bought two of them for $90 Canadian each, but the store was having an out of business sale.
