Bought this on based specs, used it 4 times. I like a tighter string pattern. Used head tape and overgrip. Freshly strung with the BB gut poly hybrid. Easy 9/10, not a mark on it. $75.00 shipped in the eastern US, $80.00 shipped west of the Rockies. Money orders only please. If interested please email me @ basil.Poulakis@ricoh-usa.com Plenty of excellent references. I baby my frames. Buy with confidence.
