Like that awesome Black and Red V-Neck Fed wore for Dubai and Rotterdam last year, I got that for like 42.50 because it was already marked down and they had a sale to take an additional like 20% or so off.
I pretty much strictly buy my RF stuff on the auction site at 50% or less off the retail price. It's funny how stuff in popular sizes will sell out on the on-line tennis sites but still end up on the auction site 6 months later. I scored that Black/Red V along with the Abyss one for about the same price as you.
