    Forget that, Guy! (Nuyk nyuk)

    I cringe to pay more than $200 for any racquet. But I use them to play tennis, not collect as an investment or as objets d' art.

    I sold mine for $299 in near mint ... who needs a brand new one? I'm tired of wiping dust of them. No more brand new classics for me.

    ^ Me too. I'm in "Use 'em, or lose 'em" mode, and I like that. Less is more.
    That said, I'll have three 1980's Kneissls up for grabs pretty shortly (once I find some time to photograph and list them).

    I'm also in the "if you've got it, use it" category. $700 for a racquet is more than I'd ever pay, no matter how interested I am in a stick. There are so many people in the world for whom $700 would make such a huge difference, it's kind of obscene to think about spending that kind of money on a what amounts to little more than a toy.

    Wow! Is this from his actual 1991 Davis Cup stash? Whom was this "A vous de jouer" addressed to? You?!!! No wonder you have so many cool and hard-to-find racquets. :)

    $700 is flipping obscene. That's 10500 South African rands ha ha! That's more than what 50% of the locals earn in a month . But in saying that it's a beautiful racquet. Also I suppose when you're paying the equivalent of $80 to $100 for a La Coste golf style shirt then it seems ok
