Hi mate. The problem is, everyone is looking for a bargain, and won't pay top dollar. They are a little more easy to find than the adidas GTX-Pro T, and so that brings the price down a little. But if it is in mint condition, with cover and key, then asking $150 is a fair price maybe more..

Agree but in new condition these are even worth more, problem is, it's really hard to find them new or nearly new...

One of the sweetest hitting frame ever. Super comfortable and maneuverable for a midsize.

Yes the puma super is one or maybe the best of the series... Samster you have one in pristine condition man! nice stick but i think it's not strung right, normally the last main should go wide...

I wonder why Becker doesn't reissue this racket. It wouldn't cost him any money and he could sell the crap out of them.

It adjusts the length of the frame. At the bottom of the handle there is a screw - it seems from these pictures that it is extended to max length.

This is the one I play, really nice racquet to play with.
I don't know if this one has any similarities with the red and blue posted before.

Beautiful racquet! I just bought a BB Super in 9/10 condition from the big auction. It's wonderful. I also have an Estusa Provantech, the racquet is covered in a checkered pattern.

The one I got was originally listed on the auction site. I asked the guy how much does he want for a "buy it now". He said $95. I told him I'll buy it for $90 and he bit it. The BB Super is about 9/10 condition. This was a steal for me. The guy obviously didn't know about the value of the racquet. On the other hand, I sold a BB Winner last year, 8.5/10 condition, for $75. It's night and day between the two racquet, in terms of resale value.

Wow $610 that seems alot, but if in mint it may be worth it.

I would take half of that for mine! unfortunately it's just a Puma Davis Cup not a Puma Super or a Winner
