It does not have to be strung and I do not care about court rash, scuffs or chips as long as it does not have any structural damage. The price I am willing to pay depends on the condition. I understand this is not a cheap racket but if anybody has one they do not need I am looking to spend around $100 but if it is in good condition I will pay more. Please email dgpsx7 at aol dot com. Thanks.
