    How many racquets do you use when using a ball machine during a week of practice, or how often do you get your racquets strung when using a ball machine?

    I use my ball machine twice a week( I hit about 400 balls each outing) and play matches another two times. I string 3 times a month.

    Interesting point. I'm new to the world of ball machines (having obtained one a couple of months ago). Seems like a good approach to have one racquet to take the bulk of the heavy hitting.

    And I could see justifying using a more durable string for the ball machine racquet, unless you were a real stickler for keeping things as consistent as possible (and keeping all the racquets all strung the same, or nearly so).

    So that means you use three matching racquets? Just curious if that's part of the equation. And the strings? Same or different?

    I would probably try to have three racquets (all similar specs) and use one for hitting with the ball machine, and the other two for matches.
