    Hi fellow Canadians,

    I'm wondering if we can start a sale/trade club amongst ourselves. As I'm sure you know it can be a pain to purchase from the US with customs/duties and long shipping times. That being said I have purchased at least 14-15 racquets over the years from the US. It just seems that it's easier to purchase a used racquet rather than demo as I cannot find many racquets in my city.

    However, there are many of us here so we should be able get a little network going. Who's in?

    Hello Richie65!

    Great idea. I would certainly be interested as I have purchased 2 racquets by now on this site and am looking for more.

    Best,

    After 4 years of constantly switching racquets I think I've finally settled. Great idea though. I still have some to sell off - I'm in.

    delivery

    For those of you who are around St. Catherines, Hamilton, Toronto, or the Minden cottage area, I come up from Pennsylvania every May and July. My father is retired and goes up even more often. Since it sounds like the shipping is an issue, if you were to purchase something from the US on the boards in May or early July, had it shipped to me and wanted to meet somewhere, I'd be glad to deliver on the way up or somewhere around Miner's Bay Ontario. We could even get a set in at the lodge.

    Any luck with getting the new Canadian sale/trade area? Maybe we should just post a note with our collections.

    Does anybody know the best/cheapest method of shipping across Canada?

    I haven't heard back from Spencer. Does it make sense just to use this thread as our Canadian For Sale or Trade thread?

    I think we need to have more canadian users showing interest in this thread...in the meantime we could use this thread but it could become several pages long and a nightmare to keep track of what is still available.

    I hope the admin of this forum will go ahead with richie65's idea.

    FUJI: I have a Super RD Tour 95 (not a 90) in 1/2 grip and in 7.5/10 condition. I'd rate it higher but 1 of its 4 extended shockless throat grommets is missing (it cracked, so I removed it).

    RICHIE: would you trade the Volkl T10 GenII 1/2 grip for my Donnay Pro One MP 1/2?

    Hi count me in. Good idea and great site for info too.

    I have dealt with the surprise of getting dinged by a BORDER FEE at my front door by UPS namely $30 for their blessing. I have bought a few rackets off this site, (8 in total) Swedish9 for one and he's a stand up guy.

    Sorry didn't receive a message. Not in for trade as 4 1/2 is too big. I played the Gen2 with two overgrips and still struggled.

    Keep the posts going...............

    This is a great idea - at the minimum it should be made into a "Sticky" post.

    I've got a few frames I'm interested in selling as well. They are listed below. All these are in various conditions but none have any cracks / structural issues, etc... just cosmetic stuff. I'm located in Vancouver just FYI and have good references here.

    Wilson ProStaff 95
    4 1/2" | 9.5/10 | SPPP 18 & Gosen Micro 17 @ 54/57# ~ 1hr | $100+shipping

    Wilson nCode Tour 90
    NOTE: ** Fuji has first dibs on this so may not be for sale if he decides to buy **
    4 1/2" | 8/10 | Mantis Comfort Poly/Synth hybrid @ 54/57# ~ 30min | $75+shipping

    Babolat Pure Storm Tour (2010 paintjob)

    Hi Peterfig,

    For the Wilson ProStaff 95 is this the vintage that came out in the 80's?

    Haven't been keeping up with the names,

    Is it Prostaff Tour 95?
    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Reviews/WT95/WT95Review.html

    or
    Is it Prostaff 95 Classic?

    Please email me some pictures and specs
    jasonbbb13 (at) hotmail (dot) com

    Also I would be interested in the Asian BLX Tour 90, if there is a way
    to increase the grip to 4 1/2 w/out using overgrip or heat shrink.
    Does Wilson have any palettes? Gotta google this...

    thanks

    Hello,

    I have a Silent Partner Lite Ball Machine I am looking to sell. Machine has been used approx 15 times and I bought brand new 2 years ago direct from Silent Partner. I have the original box and manual the machine was shipped with.

    Features: The Silent Partner LITE has an electronic speed control which ranges from 15 to 95 MPH, 150 ball capacity, an electronic feed control which ranges from full stop to rapid fire, which guarantees to keep you on your toes. It also has an electronic spin control that features topspin and backspin and a manual elevation from drive to lob.

    Includes 2 batteries

    I would love to keep this but it is just not getting enough use.

    Condition is 9/10 as there is hardly any use. Looking for $400.00 obo + Shipping. I live in the Lower Mainland/Vancouver Area so local pick up/drop off pick up would be o.k as well.

    Email for Pics

    Hey I have a Donnay X-Dual Platinum 99 but it's in a 1/4 grip size, and the Prince is 4 3/8 grip size, is there any way to make the prince grip smaller to a 4 1/4

    3x YTK Extreme MP

    All 9/10

    Very new. Cosmetically they look pristine. One has a small scratch at 3 oclock but that's it. All with new leather grips installed. Love the frames but just too stiff for aging arm. I could hit bombs with this frame though.

    Looking for trades for YTK prestige MPs. Will take cash offers too.

    Please reply to mike.chow@rgoers.com
