    Hey guys,

    I am selling these two frames for a buddy of mine, he was sponsored by Head at one point but than his ranking just dropped dramatically to the point were he had to start purchasing his own frames along with stringing and customization costs as well.

    I think it's safe to say his tennis days are over for a while after he complete blew out and tore his knee.

    He only wants to part with two of these for now, but he will sell more once it sinks in that he can't play tennis for a LONG time...

    I'm trying to keep him to stay positive but it's tough.

    Racquets are in 9/10 condition with just scuffs on the bumper guards but NOTHING on the frames, they are structurally sound and in incredible condition (these were not his main frames as you can see in the pics)

    These racquets went through some customization with **** and were both strung with babolat VS gut / Luxilon hybrid at 57 pounds. One racquet was hit with once for about 10 mins and the other one is freshly strung.

    As you can see I am also selling two Head Calfskin leather grips that were taken off of two of his other head racquets and were NEVER used. The grip size that they were taken off of was a 4 5/8 grip size so these grips can be used for any grip size and than adjusted.

    I am trying think of a fair price to ask for these frames considering all the money he shelled out for them and customization.

    Here's what was invested in them:

    Both frames were bought for $100.00 each brand new at the time.

    **** Customization came out to $80.00 a racquet with the Head Calfskin leather grips installed.

    The string job with the cost of string was $75.00.

    2 Head Calfskin leather grips go for $50.00 from ****

    Now, I am not looking to get full price but I'm just trying to give you guys an idea here so I think that $300.00 shipped is fair for everything listed here.

    Here are the pics:

    I have references here (just look up my name racquetfreak777) and on the "E" as well.

    Email gotenks1369@aim.com for any offers or just to contact me.

    Will accept paypal.

    Thanks and hope to hear!

    Are you willing to exchange other grips for one of your Head Calfskins...and some money.


    BTW...How do you know all pros use wilson shaped pallets on Head frames.

    If you guys had any idea how frigging much **** charges for such stuff, you'd be jumping at this stuff. At 250 for the pair, this is a great deal. Racquetfreak, I hope you get a good deal on these.

    $250 shipped and as for the pallets, well I'd say that they are closest to the clip ons but with just some adhesive tape or glue (similar to the Volkl pallets)

    the liquidmetals have a a lot of feel and they feel close to the prestige classics, they just have a heavier swing weight, but a lot of new generation players liked that. These liquidmetals have the heaviest swing weight for a stock frame, they swing at 340!!!

    Just curious...

    Why would anyone in his/her right mind pay the price of current generation (MG) presiges for 2 generations old (LM) prestiges, regardless of whatever questionable modifications were done to them?

    Gennady...what are you talking about?

    MG frames go for double the amount I am asking...

    If you knew how much the customization costs you wouldn't say that...

    As far as specs, here goes:

    STRUNG WEIGHT: 364 grams / 12.8 ounces

    SWIING WEIGHT is at roughy 329

    9 pts head light

    Stiffness is at 60

    This was all done on a babolat rdc machine at my local stringers pro shop...
