    i recently found this racket at my local goodwill; is it a good racket? what year is it from?
    I also have found a pete samras autograph wilson, jack kramer prostaff, head composite master, wilson Graphite tour PWS, a wright and ditson racket looks old, and a wilson mercury Maureen connolly racket all in a couple weeks time.

    grip for ATP white fox racket

    i think this racket still has its original grip; does it devalue it to replace the grip? I am not planning on selling it because its a very nice racket but i also dont want to devalue it.

    The Fox WB 210 (most likely what you're describing) is a very good control racket. They have thin beams, are flexible, and low-powered. If that kind of racket fits your game, it's an excellent racket.

    If it is white and red, then I played with them back in about 1986-87. Good racket back then, I think it was boron/graphite.

    was it a high end racket? i used it for a few minutes one day and it actually works very well. Is it rarer then most fox rackets because there seems to be very little information on it.

    Its really hard to help without picture posts.
    This happens to me often via email.
    Maybe its this racket:

    If not, maybe its another at this link:

    None of the fox rackets were really highly sought after even some of the custom bosworths. They do play great and are some unique sticks but your not going to take a vacation on your find.

    The pics in the above post are the one I played with. It was a high end racket and played nicely. Long time ago though so I can't give too much more info on it.
