    Last week I picked up a Dunlop 200G (nearly new condition with full cover) and a slightly scuffed up Head Vilas in one stop for around $7 total.
    Today I found a dirty but decent Dunlop MaxPly for $1.50!
    I hope tomorrow it stops raining long enough for me to try 'em out.

    Yeah, the Swiss Inn is soon to be renamed the Palmer Inn and Tennis Center.
    Nice facility though. 6 pristine green Har-Tru clay courts, with powerful lights, a pro shop, and a very nice pool.

    Played with it for an hour and a half tonight until crack no1 began to spread and the frame started to go somewhat tectonic. A glorious hit, one that will live long in the memory. Effortless power. Think I even managed to get the ball in the court once or twice.

    Alu power mains and Wilson synthetic crosses. Three layers of lead under the bumper from 2 to 10 and the handle chock full of silicon.

    You were quite right about it being pro stock...

    Now retired before the whole thing falls apart.

    Racking my brains as to whose racket it could be. Did have a moment thinking it could be Ivo's until I realised it's not a size 9 grip...

    In the last two weeks, I've scored an original PK Black Ace and a Yonex R-22, both almost new, for 6 bucks total.

    Got Wilson sting 2 for $1, grip needs to be replaced. Did not buy Head edge and Prince magnesium series pro 90, they were in bad shape.
