    Okay, so there was an earlier thread I made about some tennis racquets I was interested in purchasing. I met the guy today and bought them! I even decided to post pictures of racquets I already have just because, we'll, i'm pretty excited!

    First here, is my original nPro. It was the very racquet i've ever bought, and its the first racquet I bought from TW. I love this racquet. Hits very solid, and notice my unique strips of lead at 3 and 9.

    Next is the Pure Drive Team OS. I bought this in very good condition for $25. I gave it to my dad because he was playing with a head bought from walmart. Its literally a night and day difference. People who play with walmart frames really have no idea how much more enjoyable the game could be.

    Here's the first racquet I bought today. Its a Babolat Pure Drive +. Its all original, but its got quite a few scratches but no cracks. The bumper guard is broken, and a new one has already been ordered. Once that is replaced, it will look pretty good. Obviously the guy who had it before wasnt aware of how to treat a racquet. Needless to say, I bought because of the price. I paid 5 dollars for it. I already outfitted it with a tournagrip and once the bumper comes in, it will be strung with PHT.

    Secondly, here is the second racquet I bought today. Its a head Liquid Metal 8. I got it for 20 dollars. Its in very good condition. Very minor scratches and no other damage. Grip is 4-5/8, and I use 1/2, so i'll probably resell this racquet, but I wanted to give it a try. I was shocked of how light it is. I really like the look of the racquet, but its very wide compared to the babolats and my wilson.

    So thats my tennis racquet day. He also had a hyper hammer 6.2 for $20. I would have bought it but I thought it was the 5.3, and I didn't want the oversize head. I enjoy the mid+. The head though, I figured I could probably sell it for $25 then its like getting the beat up babolat for free.

    wow, that babolat has huge chunks of graphite missing. that is painful to look at, but as long as it is not cracked, still a super deal for 5 bucks :)
