Hey guys

Someone is interested in buying my matched pair of 4 month old PD stds. I dont have any major scratches or bruises on them, just normal wear and tear, and I consider them to be 9/10. Considering they retail for $175 can you guys tell me what a reasonable price for them should be (both). Pictures attached for proof

My experience with auction sites is "even simply used" equals an automatic 25% reduction. I'd say 9/10 would fit in that category. You can always lower your price if you decide this is too much.

(IOW, I'd suggest you start with $131.00 each.)

thanks kaptain karl. That sounds like a reasonable starting price

You will probably have to lower your price from $131 because PD are usually going for less than that if you check around.

Yeah, you can buy 'em new for that price. Personally I wouldn't pay over $100 for a used racquet and I'd only pay $100 if had hardly been hit with and had no scuffs or scrapes whatsoever. I'd start at $100 ea possibly (you may find someone willing to bite), but I think you could expect $90 each.

I was afraid of that for you, bubs....

If you sell 'em on an auction site, put your Starting Bid at about $50.00 and let the bidders have some fun. (If you start at $1.00, like too many people do, you run the risk of bidders losing interest so fast, that you end up selling the sticks for about $75.00. Of course, this is all just ... my opinion.)
