Please share details. Thanks
Darn someone already bought the Muster racquet. Really wanted to compare this with other prestiges...
How much was the Muster racquet? I would have sold a kidney if need be.
and the lendl was 3
i cant believe they were selling the white stars for 39.99..seemed underpriced
i raised the question in the classical racquet forum whether TW had any proof of origin regarding the prestige. did Muster really play with that racquet, or was it just customized for him, or do they assume it was for him?
haven´t got an answer yet. whoever bought it should realize, that he may not have bought the real thing. caveat emptor
it came from Bosworth
i know what we can do..will the buyer of the racquet please take it to a CSI lab and have them do a fingerprint analysis and if Mr Muster is reading ..please submit to the FBI for a fingerprint analysis, thank you
letter of provenance by Warren Bosworth stating that it was indeed one of Musters rackets would work for me. if the buyer doesn´t need evidence, i have a mint prestige pro(first gen) and i´m quite certain it was also played by Tom
ur not Tenniswarehouse or Warren Bosworth
I hope the racket does not have Muster's DNA on it ..........
it´s ok if you don´t get my point nice talking to you nevertheless
my point is that they have a certain reputation that they have built up over the yrs...could they be wrong,,sure.,.. but very likely they are not...
In a couple of weeks Mustard will post a thread about how he has extracted Muster's DNA and created a clone.
if people buy a racquet for 600,- ,without proof, based on the reputation of Bosworth and TW, good for them.
i´m sure TW are not knowingly making a false claim. i would just like to know how they know that the racquet was played by Muster and whether they have some proof. Did Bosworth write that down somewhere? maybe in an inventory? that would be good enough for me
i´m less than impressed, that they can´t be bothered to answer.
As I previously stated in the other thread, the racquet came directly out of Warren Bosworth's warehouse to our warehouse. On the racquet, there are two stickers one showing it was hit by Muster and the other showing it came from Bosworth's collection. Unfortunately, Warren Bosworth has passed away so we would be unable to get a letter from him or be able to write a letter that he told us. Also for a prompter response, please ask in TW Questions and Comments as we frequent that thread more often.
I would rather have Nadal clones. As each one gets injured, the next one can keep playing.
I think I have to agree with you on that one
thanks for answering in this thread as well
i would welcome it, if that kind of clarification would come simultaneously with putting the racquets up for sale and not some time later.
they addressed it in the vlog
If I knew I would have bought it.
Do you guys constantly check the TW Vintage rackets section? How often do any pro-related rackets pop up?
u really have to keep up with the vlogs... they post it friday afternoon. and also check the boards constantly for updates
so if you have a life..it might be tough to do
I wonder if the buyers will hang onto them or try to flip them for an even more insane price?
the price on the prestige pro is not really insane, it´s worth what people are willing to pay
it´s important to have good authentification though. at least it is to serious collectors, and at that price it gets serious
It should be hit with at least once. That or smashed. If you get a racquet belonging to a legend one should try it because the world wants to know that feeling, or if that person decides not to even go near it unless he's wearing protective gloves and a hazmat suit, it's disrespectful to the people around him just missing out on buying it, the vendor, the supplier, and the original player. If the buyer decides not to touch it ever, it has no use being intact.
i know that i would play with it(albeit ultra careful) not because the world wants to know that feeling but because i like to know that feeling
got a prestige pro 1st gen really cheap a few months ago and couldn´t resist playing with it though it was in mint condition and playing with it might result in lowering the monetary value. and i can tell you, it played like heaven. easily the best racket i´ve ever played with(in 36 years of playing)
If TWH say he did, he muster done.
they were selling the mizuno lendl racquet here a few years ago also for about $75 but they werent advertising it that it was customized for lendl
i remeber that... i remeber people saying that it felt heavy but very plush
