    Just wondering if your racquet and tennis bag are the same brand? ie: Yonex racquet and Yonex bag, Babolat racquet and Babolat bag, etc.

    Babolat PDT and Babolat Team Line 6 pack. Not for looks, just for the quality, I guess matching was just a bonus.

    I use a Yonex RDS001 mid, and I also have the Black Yonex 6-pack bag. My Wilson tour 6-pack was getting a little trashed and it was entirely too big, so it's now holding on to my old Wilson racquets I don't use anymore.

    I like having the matching bag/racquet combo. For some reason, it feels weird to me to be carrying around my racquets in a non-matching bag. I think it's just personal preference, although I think the Yonex bag is very well made, just like the racquet is.

    For some reason I always match my bags and racquets. I change racquets quite frequently so I've got a small stockpile of bags as well. Currently using the Prince 03 Speedport Black racquets and Prince Team Orange 6pk Bag.

    Boris Becker racquet and Wilson bag.

    I've had the Wilson bag for about 10 years, and always played with Wilson racquets. Was going to get a new Becker bag, but I like the Euro version better than the one we get in the U.S. So I'm trying to find a place to order it from that will ship it here.

    babolat-bag (also string, head tape and string savers)

    The Babolat bag just seems to be of better quality, and at the time Wilson didnt have one in black. (I have a 12 pack, so it's bad enough I walk around with a big gigantic bag, it certainly doesnt need to be red)

    Yes, the ones with more white are the ones I am looking for. The mostly black ones are nice, but the ones with white look really good. I also might go with a Babolat bag, just because they are nice looking and appear to be high quality, and at least that'd match my shoes...

    Dunlop racquets and Yonex pro 6 bag.
    When I switched Yonex racquets for Dunlop ones, I didn't manage to force myself to like the Dunlop inverted ice cream cone-like 6 aerogel bag on my back (even if it seems to have a very good quality) and then my Ag100s match perfectly the Yonex pro bag's colors (especially in case I decide to use a green supergrap on them ;))

    racquet : Winghart Puruce

    bag. Yonex 3-Pack yellow

    it doesnt need to match since winghart doesnt make racquets or bags anymore. However both are japanese companies so its fine by me
