    I am switching over to k90 and i need to sell these so I don't go broke. I'm a poor college student. it would be a waste to hang them up as antiques.


    both 8.5/10
    they don't have labels but i'm pretty sure they are 4 3/8 with babolat leather grip.

    one is freshly strung with prince duraflex 16 at 60lbs, with some lead along the pws area as well as handle under the leather. extremely stable, especially useful on returns and volleys, makes your serve and groundstrokes massive.
    other one is stock and not strung.

    i bought both of these from someone on this forum, i forgot who, it was on an older incarnation of this forum. I didn't touch my racquets for about two years and started again a few months ago so i think i've had these strung maybe 6-8 times each.

    i do have a THIRD that is 6/10, 4 1/4. it plays fine, it just doesnt look very pretty with the faded/chipped paint.

    i will post pictures tomorrow.

    i'm looking for 180 obo each.
    80 obo for the 6/10.

    With my post college budget (loans to pay off), I'll be looking at the 6/10 L2 "not so pretty" one. Can you post comprehensive images of that one?

    the codes on the buttcaps are worn and hard to see, i couldn't really get them to show up in the pics, if its really a big a concern, i'll try to figure out a way. you are able to see the red of the st vincent in some of the pics though.

    one of the 8.5/10 the other is at my stringer's house, i'll have it in the next few days and take pictures.
    GRIP: 4 3/8

    my email is saphirewings at gmail dot com

    i will be taking best offers. i'm not sure if you are allowed to post offers on here?

    i take paypal as it is very efficient. no checks. send cash at your own risk.

    the head guards on two of them are cut to fit because they are prostaff 6.0 85 headguards and apparently the hole spacing was slightly different in one spot. i believe the grommet strips should work without any problem.

    the last racquet has single layer of lead at 3 and 9 as well as in the handle for balance. its not too heavy, very stable/solid especially on returns of serves, overall insanely powerful. i can see why sampras used 10 lbs of lead on his.

    i bought these racquets for around 250 each so i feel i'm offering a very fair price on them. believe it or not, the 6/10 was one of the first ones i got, it was in the same exact condition and i paid $600 for the pair that included it.

    Thanks for posting what they actually sold for. It's nice to keep everything above board.

    Also, might help anyone else out there who is thinking about selling their St. Vincents...
