Hey guys,

I am selling these two frames for a buddy of mine, he was sponsored by Head at one point but than his ranking just dropped dramatically to the point were he had to start purchasing his own frames along with stringing and customization costs as well.

I think it's safe to say his tennis days are over for a while after he complete blew out and tore his knee.

He only wants to part with two of these for now, but he will sell more once it sinks in that he can't play tennis for a LONG time...

I'm trying to keep him to stay positive but it's tough.

Racquets are in 9/10 condition with just scuffs on the bumper guards but NOTHING on the frames, they are structurally sound and in incredible condition (these were not his main frames as you can see in the pics)

These racquets went through some customization with RPNY and were both strung with babolat VS gut / Luxilon hybrid at 57 pounds. One racquet was hit with once for about 10 mins and the other one is freshly strung.

As you can see I am also selling two Head Calfskin leather grips that were taken off of two of his other head racquets and were NEVER used. The grip size that they were taken off of was a 4 5/8 grip size so these grips can be used for any grip size and than adjusted.

I am trying think of a fair price to ask for these frames considering all the money he shelled out for them and customization.

Here's what was invested in them:

Both frames were bought for $100.00 each brand new at the time.

RPNY Customization came out to $80.00 a racquet with the Head Calfskin leather grips installed.

The string job with the cost of string was $75.00.

2 Head Calfskin leather grips go for $50.00 from RPNY

Now, I am not looking to get full price but I'm just trying to give you guys an idea here so I think that $300.00 shipped is fair for everything listed here.

Here are the pics:

Are you willing to exchange other grips for one of your Head Calfskins...and some money.


BTW...How do you know all pros use wilson shaped pallets on Head frames.

racquetfreak777
12-18-2008, 05:27 AM
xhbvi3tboix, it is babolat vs 16 natural gut and yes there is still adhesive on the grips, they were never used!

xHBvi3tbOix
12-18-2008, 11:57 PM
does calfskin feel soft like babolat grips or firm like wilsons?

racquetfreak777
12-19-2008, 07:44 AM
yeah hes not ranked anymore as of the moment, I got the calfskin grips from RPNY, they charge $60.00 shipped for those two grips and selling them for half that...

xHBvi3tbOix
12-19-2008, 05:53 PM
okay...so how does the calfskin feel? soft like babolat or firm like wilson?

racquetfreak777
12-20-2008, 03:34 PM
They feel soft like babolat especially if you use an over grip

racquetfreak777
12-20-2008, 03:35 PM

How does RPNY repallet LiquidMetals? Do they have to add layers or did they shave it down? or is it a clip on like the fischers

meowmix
12-22-2008, 01:51 PM
If you guys had any idea how frigging much RPNY charges for such stuff, you'd be jumping at this stuff. At 250 for the pair, this is a great deal. Racquetfreak, I hope you get a good deal on these.

racquetfreak777
12-22-2008, 03:14 PM
$250 shipped and as for the pallets, well I'd say that they are closest to the clip ons but with just some adhesive tape or glue (similar to the Volkl pallets)

12-25-2008, 05:14 PM
I have played with the microgel and the classic how do these compare to those? microgel feels kinda mushy to me, it bothers me, i like the classic tho. crisp

racquetfreak777
12-27-2008, 08:04 AM
the liquidmetals have a a lot of feel and they feel close to the prestige classics, they just have a heavier swing weight, but a lot of new generation players liked that. These liquidmetals have the heaviest swing weight for a stock frame, they swing at 340!!!

Why would anyone in his/her right mind pay the price of current generation (MG) presiges for 2 generations old (LM) prestiges, regardless of whatever questionable modifications were done to them?

Great point. I was just thinking the same thing. WHY? :???:

racquetfreak777
01-20-2009, 08:24 AM
Gennady...what are you talking about?

MG frames go for double the amount I am asking...

If you knew how much the customization costs you wouldn't say that...

As far as specs, here goes:

STRUNG WEIGHT: 364 grams / 12.8 ounces

SWIING WEIGHT is at roughy 329

9 pts head light

Stiffness is at 60

This was all done on a babolat rdc machine at my local stringers pro shop...

Honestly, it does not matter if you have customized them etc because customizing a racquet does not mean the racquet's value will go up just like a car if you made modifications to it and expect people to pay top dollar for it then you have no chance. Prices go down not up for cars, same with your racquets which are secondhand or third hand.

good luck with selling them unless they are paint jobs of whatever then don't expect them to fetch that price.

Obviously you do not know much about cars and racquets man.
Yes, for your average Nissan Altima price will go down, does not matter what you do to it. But let's talk Porsche for example. Prices are staying the same and on some models they are actually going up with time. Or take Brabus (high end customization of Mercedes by a private shop). Prices on those are rising every year because most of them are unique.
Same with racquets. Take your average head radical or Prince....price will drop in a year.
Now, let's talk this racquets here...If customization by RPNY does not mean anything to you, then.....I have nothing else to add.

No problems.
But to be honest, you do ask a bit too much for those. Of course not $170 but....i would say $180-190 shipped would sound about right.
Also, just curios, can you tell me what exactly Roman did to racquets?

racquetfreak777
01-28-2009, 05:23 PM
he did the pallets and did a GREAT job, and he left the frames alone when it came to balance, weight and swing weight, he did make sure that they were both the same IDENTICAL weight and they are.

I've got an idea. If you've got a magic wand then change them to mid plus and I'd buy them in a heartbeat. Only reason I got rid of my LM Prestige MPs was that darn Head pallet shape.

02-09-2009, 01:38 PM
Gorgeous sticks, dude, but not enough racquet for me. I used to play with non-customized Liquidmetal Prestiges, and except for the Head grip shape, they were awfully nice racquets. If it was the MP, I'd put in an offer. Good luck.

02-12-2009, 12:08 AM
If you really want to sell them out, you should considr that:

1. LM Prestige is regarded as the worst prestige model by many people. It is far from being popular.

2. Your costumization is not for every body; it is designed for a certain specific person (that is what customization is for). Namely, your customization is worthless for most of people.

I bet that you cannot sell them at $215. You should not consider of how much you spent on them but how much others would pay for them. Check the price for LM prestige mid at market such as *bay, or in this forum.
