I do not know.....Nor do I care because they are such great racquets that now most people can afford(including me).

A racquet costs no more than $10-20 bucks to mass produce... the rest of the money is eaten through marketing, hype and what not..

This racquet is soo great, I was also wondering why it was so cheap.. I love this racquet! Since it's soo cheap, that's a good thing, I actually like it being cheap, so that everyone can purchase such a lovely racquet, haha.. I own 2 of these, and I love em.

I dunno but i think theyre low price has some part in their recent fame. People woudnt have started taking a look if it was priced around $180+. Theyre great frames btw, also theyre relatively old except for the M-fil 200 2006, which would look odd if it were priced alot more, being only a small upgrade from the previous 200.

its not that tuff to produce. its basically hollow and its just some random multifilament contruction, hence the m-fil. really ez to make. its not something like ncode where you need to do all this ****. its just basic, like a
100% graphite racquet.

Price is not a good indicator of a racquet's quality, performance, nor playability. All racquets pretty much cost around the same to produce. It just comes down to how much the companies want to market it and how much profit margin the manufacturers and the retailers can or want to make on it.

they used to be $150ish but then dunlop fired all their head engineers for tennis and the prices dropped, or something along those lines ive heard

Dunlop not only dropped their Research and Development team (who formed Vantage), but they also changed distributors in the US. they're $100 now, but they used to be $79.99
