What would you get if you only had a grocery shopping plastic bag (one where you would put your purchases in and carry home) and you went into Tennis Warehouse (if there is one) and you could pick anything you wanted...FOR FREE? :twisted:

Me: 2 Fischer M Pro Number 1 98 going up and down, a reel of yonex supergraps (lime green), 1/4 inch Unique lead tape, luxilon alu power, msv focus hex, 15 packs of Babolat VS Natural Gut 16, 3 packs of NXT 16, and 3 packs of Technifibre X-One Biphase.

You? :)

Great idea for a thread.

The first items I would buy would be a couple of those really big head racket bags. That would give me more room to shove more freestuff in - one carrier bag just wouldn't be enough to raid Tennis Warehouse with. Next, I would get some rackets - KPS88s, K90s and some YouTek Speed Pros. Maybe 6 of each racket because the massive racket bags would give me more space to fit stuff in. Then I would move on to strings, a few reels of Ashaway Kevlar in 18 gauge, lots of Babolat VS Touch, a couple of reels of Alu Rough, a reel or two of Lux M2 and 2 reels of Babolat Revenge.

That would definitely be the bulk of my "shopping trip" to TW but there are certainly other things I wouldn't mind picking up. I'd get as many Babolat Custom dampeners as I could and some of the new Nike clothing range - perhaps a couple of warmup tracksuits, some tops and shorts. Finally, a couple of pairs of Babolat Propulse 2 shoes.

I would've grabbed a lot but with any luck, the two racket bags and one carrier bag would have made it possible. I would've thought that the rest of you guys would've "bought" a load of stuff to last you ages but some of you seem to have been quite conservative.

Dang, that would be hard to choose, but:

- at least 2 pairs of Adidas Barricade V
- 2 MGPMP
- 2 Youtek Speed MP 18x20
- 4 AG 4D 300 Tour
- as many Kirschbaum PLII 19 as I could carry
- 20 Babolat Skin Feel replacement grips

and many other things I can't even think as of now.

Lol, do all of them fit into the plastic bag?:D

i would take my grocery bag to TW then throw it into the garbage can and take "Becker Series Pro Bag w/Wheels", and fill it with the following :

1 Wilson Grand Slam Super Six :D
1 Wilson Pro Overgrip Player Pack
2 Luxilon Alu rough Reel
10 packs of Babolat Natural Gut 17g
1 Wilson Head Tape
3 Unique 1/4 Lead Tape
2 Boris Becker 11 4 1/4
3 Babolat Pure Drive GT Plus 4 1/4
2 K 6 1 Tour 4 1/4
1 K Pro staff 88 4 1/4

Take a box of tennis balls with hands.

Then grab the clothing rack and shove as much as i can into the bag.

---> i would then continue to sell the clothing that i does not fit, sell the racquets i dont like, then sell the Becker bag and buy some more racquets and overgrips and such from TW.

:D

I agree.

But if gift cards weren't an option, I would probably get:

6 more Speed Pros
2 or 3 pairs of NB 1004's
A fifty grip reel of Wilson Pro
And as many reels of VS Gut and BB Original as I could fit in there.
And if theres space left, Some Nike and Adidas clothes

That would be awesome.

I think the only requirement is that you can carry the stuff using only the bag, without the bag breaking.

So, frames are ok, but a stand-up stringing machine probably won't (unless you have one hell of a strong bag). :)

04-20-2011, 02:09 AM
^^ could you carry the machine in your arms and just slap the bag on top of it? you are carrying the bag and the item and the bag wouldnt break.

Its important to establish the correct parameters in order to be able to give the correct amount of thought towards the optimal answer here.

I'm assuming that you have to use the bag to carry the items, rather than just having a bag attached somewhere. Otherwise, the game would be quite silly, wouldn't it?

It would be sad to see such a serious topic get twisted into something preposterous. :)

Yes this is serious stuff. This is what I would do.

I would take the previous day off and visit the store. I would measure the carry-able volume of a typical bag. No point measuring the actual volume (ie filling it with water or other fluid) because in real life it wont hold as much as that as items have strange shapes and sizes and there will be plenty of wasted space in the bag.

Then I would analyse a reasonable sample of items noting their value and approximate volume. If volume is not easy to approximate, i would do a simple test like measuring the volume of water displaced when immersing it in a container full of water. This is OK for solid items but tricky for things like shoes, as the amount of water displaced will be less than the effective volume of space taken up by the item in the bag.

Here you need some basic algorithms to take this feature into account for non-solid items.

I would then create a database of this information and calculate the value/unit volume. I would be looking for items with high value and low volume, so this ratio should be as high as possible.

Then its simply a case of picking the items with the highest ratios.

Things to consider include that there might not be enough items of the highest ratios to fill the bag, so then you move onto the next item. Actually you should fill with a higher volume first, and fill the gaps in the bag with the lower items to maximise performance.

Also the most desired item might not fit in the bag, so you would have to discard that.

This is only a brief set of aspects that should be covered, it is not to be relied on by the public.

Clearly a more exhaustive volume of research would need to be conducted before I give concrete advice on this matter.

Even if you end up collecting items you dont want, you could then sell them and with the cash then buy what you want. You would have to take into account the resale value of these items as another variable. And if they have a warranty, would the warranty be transferable in this case?


This is a serious matter, the more I think about it, the more seriously we need to take it.

I didnt even have time to discuss the weight factor.

Well, obviously the item's shape also has to be considered. Any heavy objets with small protrusions would cause serious pressure points that could exceed the bag's tensile strength.

I think we would need a month-long study with a team of about 8-10 researchers in order to answer the question accurately.
