Since I have been using gut extensively only in the last 5 years, I would like to know what the prices of VS Team/Touch and its past equivalent models (i.e., top of the line Babolat gut) were in the last several decades.

Those of you who have long been VS users, please provide the years and the price.

Let me start:

2009-current: $42-$43 at TW

Before the 42, it was $35 for a number of years. When I first joined the forum... it was still at $35.

Thanks. Does anyone know for how long it was at $35-36?

Any prices before that?

TW was selling it for $33.75 in January 1998 (http://web.archive.org/web/19980115032320/www.tenniswarehouse.com/StringContent.html).

In terms of real dollars (adjusted to inflation) 33.75 in 1998 is worth $45.29 in terms of 2010 dollars, so gut is cheaper now than it was in 1998

great find.. that's surprising that the price has not drastically increased over the past decade..
