Discussion in 'Racquets' started by Meriko, Jan 15, 2014.
LOL! I feel like I spend too much money by having four racquets at any given time...
Some people own 500+ racquets. LOL!
Those are some awesome collections!!!
Those are some of the best racquets ever made!!!!!
Eye candy this has turned into....
That's serious eye candy. I just love the look of those green paintjobs.
Any more pro stocks go up on the Bosworth section in the past few days?
I would like to just for one hour hit with a Grosjean pro stock frame.
Your collection Dan? Surprised by the Mids, more surprised to see the Tour 97, the 95D is such a sweet frame.
I am wondering about the same. Been on and off and checking the web page couple times during the past few days, nothing new it seems. But possibly some hot ones posted and sold in an hour or so and most of us don't even see.
i called to inquire about the 600's today and they told me they had been sold. hopefully some new ones to go up soon.
i need to figure out what i will do with all my pt57a's if people like these so much
I don't think that you'll have a problem unloading your PT57As, especially in the US.
what kind of display rack is this. It's very nice. I want to get one for myself.
It does not look like a racket rack. You could make your own with a long padded peg board hook
My main 57A's I use are from Grojean. Great sticks, I moved to his setup because it felt so good.
How is the dwell time with that frame?
They are not worth it at all. There are guys on here who claim these racquets give them feel that modern racquets do not have--They then go it league and get their butts handed to them by a guy with a Pure Drive.
Really? You can't be serious.
Yes, my collection, small but growing. There are a few more not showing (PT57A, Pyramid Tour...)
The Tour 97 is gone, waiting for the G to come out...
The mids are just the joy and something to hang on the wall, not using them, they are like new...
Got it at Home depot for $10 for the rail and screws and then each of those padded racks is additional $7 or so...
100% agree with you!! Long live the Babolat APD frames.
Dup post mistake
speaking of pro stocks. pt57a's
Why are you using IGs if you have PT57As?
Still have the vintage section up on my 2nd monitor all day long on constant refresh... nothing dangit i want a real pt57a.
a shot of the new ones... sans the sad used one on the far right haha
the MG ones are all TGK 238.1 my buddy tossed them in for free at the price we had agreed on for just the pt57a so that was nice
*clap clap clap*
So pretty! So jealous!
Wow. That is a golden friend. I have a 238.1 and it's a phenomenal stick.
Which part? "Feel" or that old-school graphite feel is overrated. Pros are competing with Pure Drives. Stiff, some say hollow, frames. Some around here would rather have a feeling of hitting a ball with these old frames rather than playing to the best of their potential.
Can I prove people here who use PC600s, etc are losing in league to Pure Drive users? Nope. Just giving them a hard time.
No takers for that dope vintage Spalding?
deleted my post earlier about my pt57a
im using the TGT292.1 mids becuase
1) i love them
2) i just got these
3) not to my specs yet
4) been playing some of my best tennis with the mids lately
Hewitt's Yonex is up. I would love to be able to just hit with that racket for an hour.
It's likely to be up there awhile too...
here's your chance! don't wait! act now!
How much is it?
But it is one of a kind.
$900? are you intentionally trying to scare people away? it's not $900! it's $899!
Well, it's almost the same as the SW on my frames but I only paid a third for them. Of course I have no idea who the frames belonged to. The Hewitt frame is being sold as a collectable - in general, you wouldn't buy it and use it as the value would go down - assuming that you could swing it. I wouldn't pay that much for a Hewitt frame because I'm not really a fan. I would for some players though.
If you really love Hewitt, it might be worth $900.
I don't love Hewitt that much.
Not that much of a market for $900 rackets. Anything over $300 is a sort of a tough sell but there are a few collectors out there who will pay that much and more.

I think that you'd be surprised.
Take a look at the wealth statistics in the US and there are a lot of people that could afford four figures for collectors frames. Of course tennis isn't a huge sport in the US so that cuts down the population.
I wish I had that much cash laying around...
That Hewitt frame is sexy. 900 is too much though. I've seen a Hewitt rdis 100 mid on **** for like 500ish before.
PC600 500$ (for flipper)
Original Radical MP 230$
Wilson Ultra 2 mid with FPK paint job for Hana, 180$
Wilson FPK 85 for Hana 230$
Yonex SRD 90 Hewitt (RDX500 paint job) $900
No racquet is worth $900 bucks. That's just stupid.
Is a car worth $50k?
Oh hell no.
Why not? :razz:
I gave up watching the vintage section on TW site.
This is torture and I have the option not to accept it. Why won't they post all of them an get over with it?
Anyway the prices are way off, so what's the point checking their site 10 times a day?
I will keep looking here for comments about new racquets that they sale one by one.
