    a racket poem:

    "A Racket of Racquets...?"

    From one racquet to another
    Choose me over some other
    Why, said the latter
    Is this one better?

    In dilemma is the player
    How to choose the maker
    Prince, Wilson or Yonex
    But that's not all to vex

    Dunlop, Babolat or Head
    ProKennex or Fisher instead
    How about custom-make?
    Specifications just to state

    More to follow a thought
    Prestige and Radical brought
    With Prostaff and Thunderbolt
    And the ever-classic still the lot

    Control, power and precision
    Cool and modern innovation
    Different colours and shapes
    Reasons behind each takes

    Head light or heavy
    For game-play savy
    Oversize or Midplus
    How so will it pass?

    Wilson Hammer Series to Triad
    Babolat Pure Control and Drive
    Prince Triple Threat to Scream
    Bandit, Hornet or Rebel team

    Dunlop Inferno & Spirit
    ProKennex Core to Kenetic
    Yonex Ultimum to V-con
    But there's more to go on!

    Wrist, elbow and shoulder
    Safety to each consider
    Efficiency and weight sum
    The overall rankings done

    T F N guide a read
    For clues thyself a need
    And racquets of great masters
    In tournaments each musters

    Then comes affordability
    More than one feasibility
    Trying each for a choice
    Any good feel to voice?

    This is the one, I think
    To home with me I bring
    For next game, I will take
    What a racket it will make!

    No mention of Volkls? Tsk tsk tsk ...

    Oh yeah, kind of forgot that Volkls are now non-existent in Singapore. You're forgiven, Yew!
