    How much do u think u can get for one of Rogers sticks. Got this one during the Australien Open in 2002. It´s the the one with the Tour 90 paintjobb. Broken strings, so restrung. Funny though, because u can se the crappy paintjobb on the frame. Cool

    Check out some of the other threads for free hosting sites. I haven't posted any myself. But you can also post it directly into a post in this thread (heven't done so myself either)

    Even if you post it directly, it still has to be hosted somewhere. I suggest you try http://www.tinypic.com. It's real easy. Host it there, then link it in a thread.

    Ummm . . . if that were the case, then he wouldn't have to, since he "already" owns that racquet, therefore he could just simply decide NOT TO SELL IT.

    Comprende?

    Sh*t. I knew it would come to this........OK. When does this auction end so I could put in a last second bid. For now, I bid $14.25 + a cracked ps 85 (fairway leather grip still useable).

    Are you sure you got it in 2002? In January 2002 when the Aus Open was, Federer was using a PS 6.0 85 with a HPS 6.0 95 Tour red, yellow, and black paintjob. He did not switch to a black Tour 90 paintjob until around March 2003.

    BTW, what does it look like underneath the paintjob?

    I guess you guys don't care that it's a fake? :confused:

    OK, then, keep bidding then. I hope someone ends up paying through the nose for a fake. :rolleyes:

    Jisses guys...I will post pics, no worries. But i also have other things to do besides keeping u happy :) like work maybe. All i know that i was down i Australia for two years back in 2002-2004 and got this when he played the qualifying doubles on one of the sidecourts. So give me a f**king break and stay cool......

    Are you really surprised that no-one takes your post seriously in any way at all when you don't even bother to post a photo??

    BTW, I'll give you $1 for it...and you can pay the P&P.

    its not real. its a 6.0 85 pj. the reason why i know this? first off the pws didn't look quite right relative to the larger ones fed usually uses, but thats just by the eyes. but the main reason i know is because if you look at the throat, the top part of the V is rounded, but internally flat, while the federer racket has the tapered aspect to it. nice try pal.

    It's very obviuosly a PS 6.0 85 with a PS Tour 90 paintjob. Just look at the throat (the two upper corners) and the fact it has a 16x18 string pattern. I don't doubt that Federer used this racquet but it must have been in early 2003, not 2002, since the PS Tour 90 did not come out until March 2003 (in the U.S. anyway). AFAIK, in early 2002, Federer used a PS 6.0 85 with a HPS 6.0 95 Tour paintjob (red, yellow and black - same as the HPS 6.1 but matte instead of glossy finish).

    OP said he was in Oz from 02 to 04 so if he got it post-March 03, it could be a "genuine paintjob" (hehehe) used by Fed.

    Anyway, all can say is that its not a regular 6.0 Holding the rackats side by side there is, yet small, but obvious difference.
