    Has anybody picked up a D-/D grade racquet? Just ordered 2 and i'm curious to know what other people had luck on with D-/D grade racquets. Any pictures too? I'll have to wait till Monday probably since the shipments going to hit Saturday/Sunday.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have not ordered any D rated frames, but I have 4 Cs and they are great. Much better than anything you can get from the BAY. They will also string the frame with Wilson 16 syn gut for N/C and you can also return the frame if you are not happy with the condition.

    Here is one example. Head MG PP 4 1/2 "C" $59.00. The only wear was on the bumper/head guard. They strung the frame for N/C. The frame had a wonderful Babolat Leather grip installed and I picked up few other items and got free 2 day shipping. No tax... The frame is wonderful.. at least 8.5/10

    TW is the best... Not to worry...enjoy the frame

    Have a great day!

    I agree, I just picked up two Youtek IG Extremes that were in C and C- condition. You can definitely tell they're used but man, they were in much better condition than I expected. I suspect you'll be pleasantly suprised.

    D condition is actually pretty good. My Dunlop 200 tours that I ordered sometime ago only had some headguard wear and one of them had a little graphite exposed.

    Concur...
    Got my C grade 300T last week, and I was shocked how new the frame looked, while the headguard showed some wear, understandable, it's a C rated racket.

    Hmm... Ok. Looks like i will be keeping my eye out on the used section now! Really low priced things there from what i've seen.

    I bought a bag full of Pure Storm Tour's in D- condition, and they looked great. A few slim paint scratches where a touch of graphite is seen, and bumper wear, but for 19.00$ a piece I couldn't pass up. Awesome condition, I'd say at least a 7/10!

    They put up a Dunlop 4D 200 Tour for $105 in D condition before, when you could buy one new for around 70. :)
