I've been looking for a racquet (6.1 95 blx 2010) for some time, and I have now found someone willing to sell me one. Problem is, it has been used and abused for more than a year by its owner (a tennis coach who seemed to play a lot). The racquet has no cracks, but lots of paint missing everywhere. I have no idea what's the lifespan of a racquet, and I'm wondering if this racquet will feel similar (approximately) to my other 6.1 95 blx 2010, which is 4-months old. Also, I heard that worn-down racquets become softer and flexier. It's actually something that I wouldn't mind, since the 6.1 is a relatively stiff frame. So I'm a bit in the dark here. Anyone has an opinion on how much this racquet might play different from my other one? Thanks!
