    I want that Radical OS so bad, but 180? Thats as much as the new racquest. I see it 100$ MAX. I mean, cmon, thats degrading the products out now.

    Especially when the chinese versions sold for $59.95 strung and personally bought many used for $15-20.

    i dont think thats a bad price considering that ncode federer edition that is going for like 300 bucks or some some crap like that...i mean if you want to play with it then go buy a used one off of e b a y and leave this special one for a display piece....

    Are you kidding? That's a steal at only $180! It's a Limited Edition and they are only making 5,000 of them for the whole world, with each one having a serial number. It's a collector's item. A regular mass produced FXP Prestige sells for $200 and they make tons of them so they'll never retain their value. When Head announced this last month, I thought it would be like $500 or something.

    really man, thats a bargain, especially w/ such a limited quantity like breakpoint mentioned. if u think its too "expensive" then simply don't buy one.

    I also think this is rather dirty. It's basically the same situation as the Prestige Classic 600....You feel like you MUST get the racquet because you DO, but its overpriced and you get suckered into it anyway.

    Maybe if they just keep re-releasing old school players racquets every month, they'll be set for life. I sure hope the next one up is the PT280....Mine are so old.

    Its not re=released, its only for a limited time and only a few thousend are made. 180 is not bad considering most other mass produced rackets are of that price. 100 bucks max? please.

    all the tennis manufactures cares about the money first i believe... and i think it's definitely worth of 180 bucks.... *even though i cant buy it =(*
