I'd be the talk of the town with my golden racquet. The kid with the golden racquet.

uh huh, real gold LEAF which isn't expensive at all (at least not the $300 extra this racket costs)

It goes towards the Breast Cancer foundation so at least it's a good cause

I can't play with that style of racket. Not my head size or anything. But i'd get the white... if money were made on trees.

Actually some high quality racquets can run $300 so its really only a 200 increase.... which they prolly put what? 50-100 worth of gold leaf in it... so 100 to breast cancer? not that bad really...

Well it is a KFactor racket. I'm not sure which one though obviously, but yes the highest price is $299, though Federer's is just $199 and they go as low as $169. In regards to how much gold leaf is on there ... not much, I'd guess $10 to $20. $30 at the very most (and I seriously doubt it). Gold leaf really isn't that expensive and their isn't a lot on the racket.

You are pretty much paying for the 'limited' edition. Like I said though, the money to the Breast Cancer Foundation makes up for it.
