    I'm having second thoughts about selling this after posting it in for sale (hasn't shown up yet).
    I don't think I will ever play it again. I only played it for a couple hours 10-15 years ago anyway but it is just so cool.
    Its all original and I have the cover too. From what I remember its on the first string job too.

    Anyone think I should keep it?

    It's up to you if you decide to keep it or not. It is a collectors item especially in the condition that it is in.

    Personally, I only really keep Heads, but that's because I like Head rackets more than any other brand. I use everything else to trade or sell to get more Heads. For you it might be a different story. You might like Wilson and can sell or trade any other brand rackets. ultimately it is up to you if you want to seek it or not.

    If you are not a collector and have no intention to play with it, there's no compelling reason to keep it.

    I am a collector of some things but I dont really see the need for this.
    The two sticks I keep on my walls for decoration are mint woodies, a Jack Kramer Signature and Chris Evert

    Go out and play with it for a week or two. Use just this one racket. After that you'll only know if you want to keep it.

    After sleeping on it (the idea, not the racquet :roll: ) I decided Its not right for me. As a 100sqi Ki5 and Pro 5g user this isnt my stick.
    The ad should be up soon.
    Thanks for the replies.
