    Whether it's a sale racquet, a used racquet, or a great deal on full retail...what do you think is the best VALUE racquet on TW right now. Best bang fer yer buck. Got some paypal funds burning a hole right now. I can play equally well (or sh!tty?) with many different styles, so nothing is off limits for suggestion.

    There are tons of awesome racquets at more than 50% off right now. Hard to pick a best. You can hardly go wrong if you know what type of stick you're looking for.

    Value doesn't mean "cheap" or "inexpensive"... define your meaning of "value" then decide for yourself.

    I was looking at those Dunlop 4D 500 Tours for $65 myself. Originally $130?

    All you have to do is click on a racquet you are interested in from the used racquet section and it will show you what is available and what the "grade" is along with the price.

    Volkl PB 7 for $55.99; don't see how you can get more bang for your buck than that...

    LM Rad, Prince Warrior, Dunlop AG 300 and 500's, Wilson BLX Blade (pink) - lots of good deals to be had on top quality sticks

    Don't forget my microgel MP! Its basically as close to Djokovic pro stocks that he starts out with before adding a ton of lead to them and then painting them to whatever new paint job the new product head tries to sell using his name with! I got mine cheaper, but for $90, its still quite a deal here and clearly the best racket that they have here "on sale"

    Boris Becker range of Natural Gut and Hybrid Packs, Boris Becker London Detla Core Tour Racquet. If you were already going to lead up your racquet after purchase anyway you can't go wrong.

    Prince TT Warrior for $70? Damn.
    Speaking of Prince, one of the greatest racquets of all time: Prince Original Graphite for $130. Both the Mid and Oversize.
    That is also very tempting.

    $3.50 ... Wilson ShockSheild replacement grip, white. It's super comfy while still retaining decent bevel edges. Tacky enough to use without an overgrip, so thats a big cost savings right there too, because I'd normally change overgrips after every match. Weighs 24g untrimmed. Thats pretty hefty but I've never met a racquet that didnt play better with some tail weighting.

    $ 89.95 ... Head MicroGel Radical MP. Quite a few reccos for this already. If I was the Emperor of desert island, and I was charged with stocking the island with one frame this would be the one. It's a racquet that would work for beginners, intermediates, ATP pros, and even aging veterans with arm issues.

    $ 79.95 ... I vote for the Babolat Pure Storm LTD as well. Swingweight 305. 8 Points HL. 62 Flex. Leather grip. Not a big Babolat fan, (2012 PD left me with my first ever case of TE in 30+ years on the court) but this one's a real gem. That low SW and head light balance makes it a killer platform for customization.

    I'll cast another vote for the PB 7's. Just got two and after a little time on the backboard and hitting serves I think I made a good decision. Seems to be a great combination of power and control.

    Off TW, but I just picked up a brand new Gamma 330x Tour for less than 5 dozen clams!

    Yes please!
