Jimbo, nice stuff, you need to open a tennis racquet museum.

Cheers mate:)

I don't think I've got enough for a museum!

But certainly have lots of nice racquets now, so in the future who knows:)

Very nice jimbo - I have just two - the Tanner and Noah TF-40, which has an extraordinarily thin throat piece.

You even left the rubberband on it! :D

How many frames do you now own, Jimbo... and where do you keep them?

I pity the fool who didn't know how to post pics until now! :)
Superb pics, Jimbo! Keep em coming! Larger they are, better they are. So the dial ups in New Zealand will crash hahaha :)

Some great model pics Jimbo.
The tri-beams are a beautiful breed.
Have you seen the Grey's Streamline model ?
Its a breauty and probably more rare then the Streamline's from many decades earlier.
Its nice how you label the models but that big Jimbo's watermark could be left off :)

Cheers,
Joe

That's not a watermark... that an INKMARK! :twisted:

(BTW, it does kinda ruin the pics, Jimbo)

I havn't counted lately, but it's more than 500 for sure, guessing 750!

Most of them are kept in my spare room, but they are also on the walls in my lounge and hallway, and even on my kitchen walls:shock:

Cheers, I certainly like the Tri-beams:)

I've seen a couple of those Grays Streamlines, but I'd have to disagree about it's beauty, I don't like them at all, they look really cheap, guessing they were made in the 70's?

Funny thing is that I walk down that path about once a week, it's really nice around there, when the weather is good!

Yes, it's an inkmark, I'm guessing it can be easily removed with some IT trickery, as you know I'm not an expert on computers to put it mildly:)

The photos took me ages, and knowing they will be "borrowed", thought I'd mark them!

(I personally like having "jimbo" on them, took me ages to choose the font as well:))

Way to go, Jimbo. Photos at last! If you have 750 racquets we can certainly look forward to many more.

Nice collection of tri-beams, especially those Streamlines and Le Coqs.

I've got one tri-beam that's sort of a mystery. It's called a Phanton, with an "n" -- and looks like a cross between a le coq

whoops. Hit the wrong button. The Phanton looks like a cross between a le coq and a Head graphite Director. Ever seen one of those? It has the thin central beam just like a le coq. I assume it's an off-brand knock-off.

By the way, I like your house. Is that you with the stroller and your wife and kids? :)

Nope, never seen it!

Got a photo of it please?

I'm posting a spot the difference photo tomorrow, think it could be quite popular:)

No, I'm obviously much better looking than that, but my property is slightly smaller, LOL:)

Here it is. It has little or no information on it besides what you see in the photos. Not even a country of manufacture. It has about a 95 sq. in. head.

750 sticks and you dont have enough for a museum? :-)
Honestly i don't think there are many members here with such a collection...

There are, they just don't show any photos or talk about how many racquets they have:)

I know one who has over 2500 for example!

It's not a race:)

You probably will catch me up, and I guessed 750, it may only be 600, of which over 100 are Jimmy Connors based!

I absolutely love the prairies and the greenliness of England....if it just wasn't too expensive in there..damn brit pound...btw..just trim them green fields and make yourself a Wimbledon grass court LOL :) You ever played on a grass court, Jimbo? (duh) probably it feels great...

Beautiful collection mate - I've never even heard of the TCM let alone seen one. That's pretty much a great white whale you've got hanging on your wall there!

Yeah, it's a good place to live overall but is very expensive, for example when the new Wilson BLX racquets come out, in the UK the cheapest retail price will be about 189 which is $300:shock:

I played on a grass court at school and the ball bounced about a foot off the ground, it was rubbish!

Yeah the Noah TCM Concept 3 Midsize is a great racquet, never seen another one!

This is actually one of the first ones I got, and that's what I was calling it!

Until I realised there were lots, and this white one will have had a sticker on the side giving the exact model name, but it's not there, so I don't know:(
