Just ordered from TW - and will now sell all of my Head MG prestige rackets. Just couldn't deal with the odd grip shape - no matter what I did, it destroyed my one handed backhand and made it go from dominant to a defensive type of stroke.

I'm done with Head for now - probably forever :(

Will sport:

2 Babolat Pure Storm Tour, grip size 4˝, Babolat VS Touch 16 Natural Gut mains @ 28 kg, Babolat VS Touch 15L Natural gut crosses @ 27 kg. My preferred overgrip is white Yonex Supergrap and shock dampener will be the round Babolat red custom damp, which will match the frames :D

2 Wilson K-Factor K-Blade 98, grip size 4˝, Babolat VS Touch 16 Natural Gut mains @ 28 kg, Babolat VS Touch 15L Natural gut crosses @ 27 kg. My preferred overgrip is white Yonex Supergrap and shock dampener will be the round Babolat black/yellow custom damp, which will match the frames :D

2 Wilson K-Factor K-6.1 95 18X20, grip size 4 3/8, Technifibre X-One BiPhase 16L Red mains @ 29 kg, Prince Recoil 16L White crosses @ 28 kg. My preferred overgrip on my two K-Factors is white Gamma Supreme, because it's thicker then Yonex Supregrap and will suit the smaller grip size better for my hand size, and shock dampener will be the round Babolat red custom damp, which will match the frames :D
These two rackets are for play in wet conditions, either just before a rain period or just after, where the balls still will be wet thus preventing me from using natural gut strings.

My Racket bag: Wilson K-Factor Super Six limited edt. Federer
My backpack: Babolat Team Line.
Sunglasses: Bollé Vigilante Competivision
Watch: Tag Heuer Link Black-Steel Quartz
Shoes: Nike Air Max Breathe Cage II/Nike Nike Air Vapor V
Shorts, polos & caps: Nike Dri Fit

I cropped this from a pic that had all of my gear so thats why my wristbands & part of my headbands are in there.

A few Babolat Pure Controls with a yonex vibration dampener my friend gave me awhile back. Been just using synthetics at low to mid 60s lately, no particular preference.
