Had a mixed week of racket hunting on CL, picked up a mint Prince Graphite II for $20 and a used Yonex RD-7 for $30, but missed out on a used Jack Kramer Graphite Pro Staff (the red one) for $10....anyone else have any luck on CL lately ?

Quiet week then.

I've had an average week:

Found a PK Black Ace (the original one), a pair of Prince Mono's, an Adidas GTX , a pair of Donnay Borg Pro Mids, a Prince Thunderstick 110 and a Prince CTS Storm.

Total outlay: About a 120 bucks. I love living over here.

The NL must be a gold mine for classic rackets. I understand some of the other countries like DK are also great for hunting trips. My friend who many may have noticed as the-abcs-of-tennis on 36ay is now fort knox of NL :)

Nice one. That looks more like a soft tennis racquet than a "real" racquet.

I've gone and done it again. My weekly haul (and it's only monday) consists of:

Another Adidas GTX (well worn paintjob, but it's gonna be used for a repaint)
2x Head Pyramid thingies (not really classics, but i could hardly pass em by at 35 cents each, including cover)
1x Donnay Pro Cynetic One
1x Dunlop MAX200G
1x Prince Spectrum Comp 110
1x Snauwaert Elipse

And a hideously green and blue Prince Benetton racquet bag, which i'm gonna use with pride :)

Total outlay for this haul: 12 euro's

I checked out Cl for the first time just a moment ago. I didn't buy anything.

But i did see a sweet babolat electronic stringer for 1700.
