im not sure but i hear that oversize racquets have a history of health problems that could contribute to an early death...

Lmao....also a new report suggests that high tension reduces longevity.

But seriously, I've heard that it all depends on how you store your racquet, how much you play, and how hard you hit that contributes to racquet "decay". I think the pro's change frames every year.

from my experience its not so much the hitting part but the restringing part that affects the longevity of the racquet so if u string ur racquet frequently and or string it at high tensions ur racquet will not last nearly as long

I'm curious about the approximate expectancy. Can someone give an average?

Perhaps you could give us some info on stuff like how hard you swing, how often you play, how high and how often you string. Those will all affect the life of a racket. But it is generally stated that the playable life of a racket can be expected to last between 2-3 years.

it depends in large part on two things. how well the frame is made (ie how much good stuff (graphite etc) vs binders and fillers and crap are used) and how many times it has been restrung. obviously things like keeping your frame in a hot trunk dont help. ed
