But looking at it, it does seem very convincing.

Who said so ??? Only because in the US they don't, doesn't mean that everywhere else in the world it's the same.
Some companies choose to sell the rackets prestrung in Europe, even their performance models.
Dunlop aerogels, some Babolat models, some Head models come prestrung around here.
Yes, Wilson does that too, I saw some K 61 95's prestrung in a local sports store.

Everything in the UK comes pre-strung. Not that the strings are up to much, and should be cut out straight away but that's a different thread.

The only exception to this that I've seen in a UK sports shop is the KPS88.

Should I cut the strings for racquets I don't use?

I don't think it matters too much in the short-mid term. Most stock strings are rubbish, but my AG300s came with M-Fil 16 strings IIRC which actually weren't too bad.

Before now I have had a frame break when I was carting it around in my bag unstrung. I have no idea whether this can happen if the strings aren't keeping the frame taut (so it was my own stupid fault) or if it would have happened anyway. So therefore I recommend that you store unstrung frames accordingly.

Hope this helps

^^thanks. I meant long term "keepers" that you collect. Is it better to keep them unstrung? I've heard strung is bad for the frame. Although woodies you need to keep them strung but thats another story.


Anyway, anyone can comment on the legitimacy of this Federer Maurice Lacroix N90? Were there ever released officially? I know Federer was with Maurice Lacroix before Rolex.

ok, I would suggest that you remove strings from "keepers", but I have no idea about the authenticity of the racket so sorry can't help on that note.

I once owned that racquet.
Yes, it is authentic. It is just a regular N90 with the watch company's name printed on the frame.

sorry, i know, the thread is very old, but how much would you pay for one of them now, new with plastic on handle?
