    Wilson PS85...only $129... off the hook cheap price on that one. At almost 30 years old they're the cheapest they've ever been!

    its happened. really, just get whatever looks the best and makes you feel the coolest playing. you're not pro so your lively hood doesnt depend on it.

    The instinct has almost identical specs to my pro open and now it's cheaper. I'll get that.

    The trouble with buying racquets is that although you can buy them you simply can't play with them all so they sit there.

    Its a bit like an alcoholic who can only buy alcohol for investment purposes when all he wants is a drink.

    True. But one fun aspect of having a lot of racquets is testing out new stringing techniques and string brands without cutting out the strings on your primary racquets.

    personally, I'd love to have a dozen or so racuqets laying around so I can test out new strings. I'd string all week long and love it :)

    Didn't roddick beat fed one of the last times they played actually? Haha I remember watching him handle fed in the third set recently. It was actually quite shocking. Best forehands I ever saw roddick hit. where was that? it was one of the American tournaments im pretty sure, the match was on YouTube.

    Man, I *just* bought a YOUTEK IG Speed earlier this week and now it's $30 off. I knew I should have waited until Friday to buy my first real racquet.

    They should seriously have a deal on every single racket if you buy more than one. One one get one for $30 less

    I had that exact thought too. I know the new ones are coming out, but there's no guarantee they'll work as well for me as the current ones do. Here's to hoping the wife snags me one for Christmas!

    Technically every single production run is a re-issue given the complete lack of consistency with tennis racquet production.
