Use ****'s search to find completed auctions for a Prince More Attack 920, then google the racquet to find out what new racquets sell for. Trouble is, Prince More series racquets rarely bring decent prices on ****. Lucky to get $30/racquet

**** is a pretty good barometer of what racquets, either new or used are worth to people. Just because you paid a lot of money for a racquet when it was new doesn't mean they hold their value when you want to sell them. From my experience on **** Prince racquets have a very poor resale value. I have a virtually new POG oversize that no one would bid even $65.00 for. Fischer racquets may have a cult following but they don't sell on ****. Babolat racquets on the other hand are great sellers on ****. You have to decide if you really want to sell them for their market value or try to find someone that will pay you the sentimental value you are looking for.

As you've read, the first rule of thumb when first getting into selling your unwanted tennis merch is getting over what you think it's worth (often higher than market), and getting educated on what the market will bear (often less than what you think, e.g., Prince More Attacks). The next rule, if you've got anything desireable, is not to undersell yourself if it's worth more to somebody else than it is to you (e.g., your double back-up Prestiges or Pure Controls). Either way, do your homework.

You can get some great deals on rackets if you just delay your schedule to buy them about a year later. Everybody goes nuts over the newest rackets when they are first released. Then the appeal wears off and people realize that the new technology really sucks and wasn't worth all the hype that was generated in the early stages. It is just a vicious continous cycle for some people. It is a marketer's dream.
Good luck on getting more than $40.00 per racket.

ok well 40$ is fine, but i think it is rediculous that the price drops from $220 to $40 is 1 year! i think i can get higher then that but i can always settel with $40 per racket

Actually, you can buy them new for $60 each, Heather. These are rackets that were reintroduced by Wilson. It's not unusual for a used racket to get only half of the new cost, that is, unless it was a really good frame that's hard to get now.

Heather, you need to repost this in the classified section of the TW message boards. That's where people that are looking for used frames go. You can always post them on e-bay too and put a reserve price on them to see if any of them will sell. Another way to judge their worth is to check with Play-It-Again Sports who specializes in reselling used sporting goods.

Ridiculous as it may be, the market decides the prices. This reminds me of a seller trying to sell two Prostaff AS 5.5 for 75 a pop. Right.

I can't believe that you paid $220 per racket. You might want to check around next time.
