    I'm not paying a dollar over $60 shipped. Especially for a 7/10 condition.

    Yeah, what's with the ridiculous prices on well-used APD's lately?

    That was for 2 frames ;) I'm a good buyer / seller on TT.. I wouldn't try and snooker you

    Yup :)

    One of these days I'll find one for a reasonable price :|

    Sorry bro, but I bought the original APD earlier this year on the TW Classifieds that was easily 7/10 for $50, and I got an ever rarer AeroPro Control that was 8.5/10 condition for a measly $40. I suggest to drag down your price.

    They go for 140 to 180 on **** If yo u can find one...they are very rare now, and obviously popular due to Nadal but I am not sure why people post arguing the price if you want it buy it if not leave the seller alone.

    Market will decide...

    BS, a nearly new original APD just went for $100 (that included shipping) and a couple others in slightly more used condition just sold for under $100.

    Dude, people on this site know what racquets are worth and what they sell for.

    No way man. The only reason they're considered "rare" is because they didn't sell as well as the APDC because the Nadal cult didn't kick in during the original APD time. You can still find them here and there, and at a MUCH FAIRER price. And if they're still posted on **** for $180, well... why do you think it's still there?
    TW found a stock of original APD a few months ago and sold for about $100 I think?
    Market decides on how popular a racquet is. But the seller has think about the buyer's side in order to make a good sale.

    My dear G, it takes more than one isolated fluke/spike/outlier to prove your so called point ;) You can always find one hot sale but that doesn't mean you can make a repeat. However, you truly are tough seller! I will give you that! ;)

    That's not how it works here man. If you want something, you have to work for it. No shortcuts. =/
    It takes luck, and timing. I was lucky enough to find a 7/10 APD for $50. $40 if you don't count shipping.

    What about the other 20-30 auctions where all sold for less than $100? And I don't think anyone here is picking on the seller. It's more that they're being realistic and looking for other members.

    I bought two of those originals when TW had that small stock of grip #5's (it was over a year ago) and sold them when I bought my two GT's :|

    I really should have kept them

    You can still find my for sale ads posted here on TT :)

    Those are two brand new sticks!

    They sold for $125 a piece. That's a far cry for $180 for one in well-used condition.

    Why don't you let the guy ask the price he wants for his racket? If i want to ask 60$ shipped for a used wrist band, that's my own business.

    Because for some of us (majority?) it doesn't work that way. For example, I am active in several forums across the world and moderator in some of them. I felt compelled many times to react and I have. For example, try to register on Canon forums and post an ad for Canon 60D with asking price of $2000. You would be banned in 3 seconds and those 3 seconds would be plenty of time to get blasted by the community and guys who are there forever. Just my $0.02 and experience accumulated for more than 10 years...
