View Full Version : If you were ordered by the gov't to spend only $100...

Lets have some fun.

Lets say the gov't came and confiscated every single racquet you own. Then they gave you a $100 bill to buy just one racquet, and it had to be from TW.

Tell me which one it would be, and why.

For the sake of this exercise, lets say there is no tax and shipping is free...

It would be between the Wilson Tour 95 or Dunlop 200g. Mostly because I need flexy racquets and all the other sub $100 racquets are stiff.

06-26-2005, 10:05 AM
Prince More Control DB 800

06-26-2005, 10:34 AM
probably dunlop 200g and second choice wilson prostaff tour 95

06-26-2005, 11:01 AM
Wilson Federer Junior racket.

06-26-2005, 11:03 AM
I'd tell the gouv to shove it and buy a Tour 95. Then I'll steal 5 packs of lead tape from the nearest tennis store.

lol brilliant I'd get the prince ttt warrior midsize

06-26-2005, 11:18 AM
prince tt warrior, or an i.prestige(if they still had them), but since there is no i.prestige, i.radical 98

06-26-2005, 11:26 AM

06-26-2005, 11:38 AM
volkl tour ten midplus

Slaz X1 or 6.0 95 from the classifieds

Slaz X1 or 6.0 95 from the classifieds

I'm with Coda. :D

06-26-2005, 12:26 PM
ps tour 95. That's an easy one.

06-26-2005, 02:42 PM
We need at least $130-150. Anyway, I will try to buy a POG oversize in at least VG condition from classified.

06-26-2005, 03:15 PM
dunlop 300G or TT warrior MP

06-26-2005, 03:16 PM
tour 95, cause thats what i use

06-26-2005, 03:22 PM
I think that buying something from the classifieds kind of defeats the purpose of the thread. You could theoretically buy any racquet for $100 in the classifieds.

06-26-2005, 03:30 PM
Prince Triple Threat Warrior MP I'd have enough almost for a gut job .

06-26-2005, 03:35 PM
Another vote for the Wilson Tour 95.

06-26-2005, 03:44 PM
I.Radical MP and some lead tape.

06-26-2005, 03:59 PM
Instead of creating a new thread about the Wilson Tour MP, how do you guys think this racquet compares to a lot of the newer racquets like the pure drive? I was thinking of getting one.

06-26-2005, 06:31 PM
I'd move to China because they would never interfere in the personal lives of their people...plus since all the racquets are made their anyway, I'd go get me a custom made frame.

06-26-2005, 08:10 PM
Well, out of curiousity Id buy a Pro Staff Tour 95. Its the only racquet in that price range which specs anywhere close to my old Prince Precision Mono so I'd love to give it a try.

Actually I should amend that to say, Id assume the government was operating on my girlfriend's instructions.

06-26-2005, 08:16 PM
if the gov't did that, i would start a riot with all other tennis players. we will have a revolution. lmao.

06-26-2005, 08:20 PM
There wouldnt be any classifieds considering everyones racquets were all taken away

with that said, im buying a Babolat Aero Tour Pro Limited Plus

06-26-2005, 08:24 PM
actually, i take that other post back.

i would steal a PS 6.0 95 and leave the $100 on the counter. :)

Well unless your were willing to travel to San Luis Obispo, you are going to have just take the Prostaff Tour 95 like the rest of us :p
