    Your collection Dan? Surprised by the Mids, more surprised to see the Tour 97, the 95D is such a sweet frame.

    I am wondering about the same. Been on and off and checking the web page couple times during the past few days, nothing new it seems. But possibly some hot ones posted and sold in an hour or so and most of us don't even see.

    I don't think that you'll have a problem unloading your PT57As, especially in the US.

    It does not look like a racket rack. You could make your own with a long padded peg board hook

    My main 57A's I use are from Grojean. Great sticks, I moved to his setup because it felt so good.

    They are not worth it at all. There are guys on here who claim these racquets give them feel that modern racquets do not have--They then go it league and get their butts handed to them by a guy with a Pure Drive.

    Hey bud,
    Yes, my collection, small but growing. There are a few more not showing (PT57A, Pyramid Tour...)
    The Tour 97 is gone, waiting for the G to come out...
    The mids are just the joy and something to hang on the wall, not using them, they are like new...

    Got it at Home depot for $10 for the rail and screws and then each of those padded racks is additional $7 or so...

    Which part? "Feel" or that old-school graphite feel is overrated. Pros are competing with Pure Drives. Stiff, some say hollow, frames. Some around here would rather have a feeling of hitting a ball with these old frames rather than playing to the best of their potential.

    Can I prove people here who use PC600s, etc are losing in league to Pure Drive users? Nope. Just giving them a hard time.

    Well, it's almost the same as the SW on my frames but I only paid a third for them. Of course I have no idea who the frames belonged to. The Hewitt frame is being sold as a collectable - in general, you wouldn't buy it and use it as the value would go down - assuming that you could swing it. I wouldn't pay that much for a Hewitt frame because I'm not really a fan. I would for some players though.

    If you really love Hewitt, it might be worth $900.

    I don't love Hewitt that much. :)

    Not that much of a market for $900 rackets. Anything over $300 is a sort of a tough sell but there are a few collectors out there who will pay that much and more.

    I think that you'd be surprised.

    Take a look at the wealth statistics in the US and there are a lot of people that could afford four figures for collectors frames. Of course tennis isn't a huge sport in the US so that cuts down the population.

    That Hewitt frame is sexy. 900 is too much though. I've seen a Hewitt rdis 100 mid on **** for like 500ish before.

    No racquet is worth $900 bucks. That's just stupid.

    I gave up watching the vintage section on TW site.

    This is torture and I have the option not to accept it. Why won't they post all of them an get over with it?

    Anyway the prices are way off, so what's the point checking their site 10 times a day?
    I will keep looking here for comments about new racquets that they sale one by one.
