    Shouldn't the title of this thread have been 'Chasing Amy' ?

    More than the 990 yen (~$10) they seem to be asking, I would think, if this was really part of the TX series. I'm not familiar with this racquet... but Amy is a pretty girl.

    Proracketeer, this site is amazing, but I'm lost once I get beyond the katakana. Are these racquets new? The prices would be great even for used, but the photos are of new frames.

    I just recognized the kanji for "nashi", as in "no cover", so they're used. (EDIT: The photos appear to be of the actual racquets: some have worn strings. Apparently, the refurbishment includes re-gripping and then shrink-wrapping the grip.... RE-EDIT: Whoops. I posted this without seeing you had just posted photos that settled the question.)

    Still, though, I'm intrigued. They have a sweet racquet that was Japan-only that I gave away to a student in 1995 and have often wished I had back!

    Looks nice, PR; congrats. If I may ask, what was involved in buying it? You're in Tokyo, yes? Was it as simple as typing in a credit card number at web site? Did you need the help of a native speaker to complete the transaction? Were there costs other than the listed price?
