    speedport silver should be the highest priced "new" racket, right?

    I'd say a brand new Adidas GTX-Pro-T, one went for like $485 over there in East BAY.

    I've seen one Wilson -- the Excalibur. The designs on the racket was supposedly hand drawn. It's shown in a glass case at a top-range deparment store in BKK. Too bad I didn't have my camera with me at the time.

    But the price was absolutely ridiculous -- 40,000 baht. That's around USD 1,100 as of current exchange rate.

    Couple of photos of a Wilson Excalibur Racquet. Came with a leather covered wood case and a leather carrying case, replacement bumper guard and grommet strip NXT strings and heavy duty Wilson stencil. It is a nice looking racquet with good graphics and some sort of gold insert in the butt cap.
    110 Sq. Inch head size. Other ghan good looks, nothing special.
