Fischer 98" M-Pro no1
Hope the link works, - first time I've used Flickr.
Racquet is structurally 9.5/10, cosmetically 8.5+
From a distance of about 3 feet, it looks brand new. I didn't buy it brand new, but I think the marks on it were storage, rather than playing marks. The grip (L5) was completely unmarked before I used it. I had an overgrip on it, & the adhesive has left a mark on the end, which can be seen in the pic.
The bumper strip has some marks, but very fine, & the paint adjacent it has no chips.
In theory, I'm a Grip 3, but prefer using 4 1/2 & it felt fine with an overgrip .... it surprises me that this says L5, if you're used to L4, this may well be fine for you.
It is strung with a UK synthetic gut, & tested by me on 2-3 occasions, so approx 90 mins of use. I started out with an old Classic Pro, & have gone round in circles with different Fischers & strings. This one is probably the closest in feel to my old one, but I'm going to keep the old, since my stringer managed to get a new grommet strip.
It's been used, - it's not going to be a collectors item, - if you want a Pro No 1 to use, for sensible money, this will fit the bill. I've seen a new one advertised for $199, & two sold as 'marked condition' at over $105. I think this one's better than 'marked'.
My price ú49/ 58Euro
I'm in Scotland, Royal Mail's prices are going up on April 1st, - I would prefer to send by Recorded Delivery.
I haven't sold on here before, but a Californian Fischer expert on here will vouch for me, if you wish. If you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'll also give you my ID on the biggest auction site.
Thanks for looking.
