I've seen a lot of extremely low prices on babolat APDC from $163 US to $132, and sometimes even $90. It makes me wonder how much retailers actually do make from selling them. I've been looking into getting a second one.

When I worked at a tennis center, the invoice price for Babolat racquets was $100.00 shipped.

Be very careful because there are a $%$% ton of fake APDC's floating around on the internet. Chances are if you see one on places like fleabay or craigslist and it's anything less than $150, it's a fake, especially from sellers that seem to sell only a few particular (most likely popular) models such as K90, APDC, PDR.

I say it's not worth the risk to go for cheap deals on a *new* racquet. If you want to save money, just buy a used one from a reputable classified like TT's.

thanks for the tip
 
If it's that low of a price you should check if it's a fake (serial number in throat, 3- letter code on butt cap, etc.)

In most things the markup between wholesale and retail can be anywhere from 50% to 100%. So it wouldn't surprise me if they were $100 wholesale.

The iPhone??? Come on, JabbaWockeeZ is cooler than the iPhone...

Oh, yeah, sorry. Anyhow, if you are seeing it listed that low in a store or reputable online dealer, then you just lucked out and found a good deal. I wouldn't buy anything from the Bay unless it was used. There's something more comforting about buying a used frame there. Probably because a fake would probably break before it could show much wear.
