    Hi guys.

    A neighbor just approached me saying he had a couple of racquets to sell on ****. He have seen me getting in and out of the building with y racquet bag and he figured I play tennis. So he came to my house today with two wilson prosaff 6.1 classic in excellent conditions. One of them just look like its been hit only one time. One is 10/10 and the other is 9.5 / 10.

    They are made in china, 80% graphite, 20% Kevlar.

    I am talking about this racquet http://www.*********/itm/WILSON-PRO...ennis-racquet-Auth-Dealer-4-5-8-/130731926011

    He let me have he racquets to try them out and them make him an offer.

    How much do you think its a fair price for each racquet. 100$ USD?

    Start low he might be happy to get a hundred bucks and free up some space. If they're in that good of shape they're worth at least a hundred a piece though. Good find :)

    If those racquets are honestly in that condition, they sound like a true find. Here's the catch: unless you've tried those things in action, they may be a not-so-great deal if they're of no use to you. Yes, those are potentially great racquets. I used them myself for maybe 15 years, but I eventually had to transition to something softer and slightly less hefty (Volkl C10 Pro) a few years ago.

    For serve and volley work, I'd say that those 6.1 Classics rank among the best of all time, but they didn't give me nearly as much control around the baseline as some softer options. You'll only know how good those frames might be once you play with them (in case you haven't yet). As for the price, I'd say that $100 each is about as high as I'd go, but I've been spoiled by more that one great deal I've found in the classifieds here. At least you can be confident that those racquets are rather sturdy - they should last a good long time as long as you don't mistreat them.

    Thanks. I actually played with them quiet a bit some years ago. A friend of mine plays with them (he has 2), and sometimes I hit around a bit with them.

    Thanks for the answer.

    There's a fair price and then the price you might be actually be able to get them for. Chances are your neighbor may not know the value of his racquets. So I agree start with a low ball offer and see how he reacts.
