    [​IMG] This week I've picked up a Javelin Midsize (not the split throat sadly but still a good looker) from Finchley for a fiver. Grip is original, strings likewise, weighs a ton.

    Also went for a stroll from Fulham Broadway up to West Brompton and picked up this Head Microgel Radical Team 102 for £20 (few scrapes on the throat but unmarked around the bumper once the muck was wiped off) and a Wilson Hyper Pro Staff 6.1 Silver W for £15 (manky overgrip and a couple of nicks but otherwise perfect). I know my Heads but have never played Wilsons - this one any good? I considered a Prince Thunder 820 which they had for £15 but I wouldn't play with it and don't care about resale value so if you're interested, it should still be at the back of the British Heart Foundation on North End Rd.

    And just for the twaron fans, this was the club pro I picked up for a fiver down in Wimbledon and regripped a while back. Still yet to hit with it.

    I've gone most of the winter without finding anything, then recently I've found several, all prince for some reason. Maybe they came from the same person but got spread around the thrifts?
    1. Prince CTS Synergy DB26 midplus
    2. Prince Graphite Pro 110, from early 80s I'm guessing
    3. Prince Comp 110, certainly early 80s, stamped DEMO of all things.

    The DB26 feels great in the hand, I'm most looking forward to hitting with that.
    The Graphite Pro 110, though it has a huge head, just huge, feels great in the hand, doesn't feel large.
