    Completely ridiculous. I just got into a bidding war for a pair of old Prince CTS frames and it cost me over $200. The fact that it got so high shows underlying demand is there. You would think that in this day and age of modern mfg technology, a tennis manufacturer would find a way to run smaller batch sizes profitably. Yeah it's small dollars in the big scheme of things but c'mon, not all of us want to play with O ports.

    There is a rather large difference between "underlying demand" and a couple of guys that cannot let the bid go...

    I loved the CTS line more than anyone I know but you have to move on. Man I could have had 2 of my current rackets for 200 bucks.

    Yep, the CTS line was excellent.

    I liked the approach 90 in particular.
