    Very head light. Great for doubles!

    Saw a large trash bin full of racquets and didn't find anything worthy but I did find this PS 6.0 midplus 95 for $7 hiding behind some framed artwork. I think someone tried to hide it to pick it up later. Oh well...:cool:

    Stumbled upon and quickly shelled out £50 for this new Vantage with bag - bit pricey for a charity shop purchase but probably worth it, I reckon?

    Saw these two today and passed on them. The Donnay had never been hit with. The grip had been man handled in the the thrift store though.

    Picked up a rossignol Vectris 9000 DP and a tecnifibre racket bag for 99p each. For the London charity shoppers, that was in oxfam at Dalton Jct (Dalton is not bad for rackets but specialises in uninspiring mid-Noughties Slazenger rackets). Of more interest, if anyone's in the market for a pair of Fischer Fascinations (apparently unknown to google) or a Lew Hoad wooden Conquest racket (with ankh), I'd recommend a trip to the Salvation Army shop on Mare Street...
