    I recently came across about $160 in my paypal account and am going to try and purchase a pair of frames but am curious about what others would buy if they had approx $160. I'm not looking for advice but just am curious as to what your choice would be...

    Whatever you end up with, make sure they're large enough so you're qualified to hit with them :lol:

    Wouldn't want you to end up looking like a poser :oops:

    ??? I suggested buying two sticks instead of just one expensive one.

    have fun~

    Number 2 ($80 each):

    http://www. h olabirdsports.com/cgi-bin/product?product=101181 (no space)

    Gamma G325 are really sweet flexy sticks that also have some solid *pop* to offer if you like to take fast full swings at the ball.

    Strange, very strange...

    Kudos to, as it happens, Agent Orynge, for the 8000 cents call :)

    If it's based on TW's sale racquets...I'd probably get the Dunlop Maxply McEnroe and string it up with TF 515 16.

    If it's based on the big auction site, I just scored a couple of Fischer Pros for $80 including a 3pack bag in great condition. So with the extra $100 I'd probably pick up some natural gut, 30 pack of overgrips and a case of tennis balls.
