    What a rip off! It's just a regular 6.0 with tourna grip and a Pete signature in a fancy box. Save yourself about A$1500 and just buy a 6.0, string it with VS gut, paint on the stencils and wrap up a tourna-grip and hang it on the wall in front of your favourite Pete poster. I wonder if they even have leather under the tourna-grip, because it should be Wilson Aire cushion or whatever he went too. And where's the "O" dampener?

    OF COURSE you'd use it! It makes perfect sense to buy a showpiece for $1895 and then rip it apart and use the racquet! :roll:

    I'm sure you have to thank Pete's shameless brother for that crap... He was known a few years ago to have him sign whatever would make money and would authenticate it with IMG letterhead...

    Even if it WAS a St. Vincent, it's still a joke.
