    Babolat offers any college player a deal for 2x Shoes, 3 Socks, and 1 Hat for 110$ plus shipping. Is this a good deal? I currently use some New Balances I bought on Eb@y for like 50$, just becuase I know New Balance to be a good, reliable, and durable brand.

    I play on hardcourt 90% of the time, and green clay the remaining 10%. I have somewhat wide-feet, but not to the point that it would make a large difference in my shoe selections, I just wouldn't wear Pumas or the likes. I have been looking to get some Barricade IIs for a while, but all the auctions on Eb@y end at the same prices found on TW, which I consider too high. I know Babolats arn't well respected for their shoes, but at about 45-50$ a shoe, they are worth it right?

    That's a pretty good deal if it's the All Courts. I had a pair of All courts and their unique style of the tongue is easy to use and they're extremely comfortable

    Does the deal include the Propulse? That'd be a pretty sweet deal if it did--definitely worth it either way, IMO
