    I am planning to sell some racquets and I am having some trouble rating racquets on a scaling system. (1-10) Are there any requirements and standards to define these parameters? If so, can someone post this and make it a sticky so that all the sellers and buyers can make reference to?

    Examples are like the following:

    Ratings:

    9 to 10 = Racquet has less than 3 paint chips and minor scratches are apparent. Racquet is close to if not in near mint condition.
    7 - 8.9 = Racquet has 4 to 7 paint chips. Racquet has scratches and no physical damage (no cracks nor dents) which can affect playability.
    5 - 6.9 = Racquet has more than 8 paint chips. Racquet has scratches and again no physical damage. Again dings are cosmetic only and will not affect playability....
    3 - 4.9 = Racquet has alot of paint chips, playabilty may be affected due to physical condition of racquet.
    1 - 2.9 = Racquet used by Johnny Mac in a heated disccusion on Umpire Calls. Play at your own risk....

    I guess
    10 would be brand new, unused.
    9.5 would be used but can not tell the difference.
    9 would be couple noticable scratches on the grommets frame.
    8.5 more scratches... from then on its just your own oppinion how on how badly the scratches are.
