    Best items you found at thrift stores (Goodwill)?

    It's been slow going recently in my acquisition efforts, but found these two frames within the last couple of months for about $7 a piece - a Wilson Kobra Team and a Head Microgel Extreme Mid Plus. Both have been cleaned up and re-gripped as shown now.

    Disintegrated grommets, old racquet, now what?

    I have a Rossignol F-200 in the same boat. Half the grommets crumbled after I restrung her. I had to cut the strings out as they were cutting into the graphite! I think Fittex individual grommets may be the only solution as in my case.

    racket head deformed by klippermate

    I had a similar experience with my Klipper while stringing oversized frames(107 sq in and over). Perhaps the mounts slipped or buckled underload - I ended up with a racquet that was more "round" than "oval". Luckily this did not have any permanent effects on the frame and they returned to normal...

    US Open’s Prestige?

    US Open has the biggest stadium, therefore it is the bestest...LOL! but in all seriousness, I think it is the hardest one to win

    After a bit of a drought, scored me a Yonex R-23 yesterday in very good shape to go along with my "square head" collection.

    Awesome find Atatu! Just got this yesterday from a thrift store - Wimbledon Boron Pro for $4.98. I'd say about a 6/10 in shape. It will go nicely along with a Wimbledon Graphite All Pro I have somewhere tucked away in storage.

    Which pro has the best serve action to copy?

    My 2 cents...I like Fabio's..it's simple and effective...when he feels like playing...

    Yonex RQ Series

    Yes - thanks for posting that! My wife has a couple of RQ's in our racquet collection - the RQ-120 which is listed in your link, and then the RQ-380 which I believe came later

    ^^^ So many nice finds lately...well done all! It's not been good pickings around here. I did spot a Dunlop Black Max and Wilson Profile 110 today, but left them behind for others to enjoy.
