    Let me know if you guys think this is a fair deal or not. I have a chance to purchase the following:

    Wilson Hyper Hammer 5.3 Stretch with a Hammer Tour paint job. The racquet was a personal racquet of Justine Henin-Hardenne, if that matters.
    Price is $50 plus $10 shipping.

    Deal or No Deal?

    Is it a racket she has used?
    Or did that seller tell you this to convince you?

    How do you know it is a (sic) genuine paint job?

    Well, my friend, seeing as it a 7 year old used racquet that could be found any day of the week for less than $25, I think the question was fair. Would you pay double the value just because it was once owned by JHH? That is the question and the answer seems to be a resounding "yes"... Thanks for your attitude, however, I was having a great day and truly believed in the power of the human spirit on 9/11 :rolleyes:

    The guy worked at the US Open and has photos with JHH... Also, the racuet has the oval Power Holes, which the original Hammer Tour did NOT have but the 5.3 did.

    Give me his number so I can call the Better Business Bur. The seller should be reported but first I must have his number. Don't buy this racket until someone trusty worthy like me can check it out for you.
