Err...anyone know why Wilson Natural Gut has gone up but Bab VS hasn't?
dont know why but i guess many wilson gut buyers will switch to babolat vs. i used to buy both but now i plan to switch
I think it's just the timing of the different brand's pricing periods, I noticed all the Wilson stuff over here went up Jan 1st. I bet Babolat will follow fairly shortly
I know in mid Dec. I posted here, that on another stringers site, that a prominent stringer said that after the 1st of year, string manufactures and machine manuf. will be increasing prices by approx. 30% according to his sources. Although he was in England, and did not know about the US market.
I'm sure that this may be just the beginning! Happy New Years.
makes sense - many thanks guys
if anyone ever bought Wilson natural gut, i doubt they will now.
it looks like luxilon went up a little as well. Alu Power used to be below $15 right? i'm not totally sure but i'm quite positive. it's at $15.75 at the moment. Seems the economy is even affecting the strings lol.. wonder if this will effect the pricing of the rackets too...
Yes BB Alu used to be $14.50.:shock: Top Luxilons have all gone up(Fluoro, Ace etc). Some of Prince strings have increased prices too, and KLIP Legend. Don't think racquet pricing have changed though.. the new Prince EXO3 line is at a pretty usual price.
Luxilon in the UK is going to go up in a few weeks time. BUY BUY BUY !!
no, Wilson racquet pricing has went up.
