    You know who you are, you have tons of frames and you have not wanted to
    let go of them thinking you might decide to go back to them at some point but you always have you eye out for more.

    I am going to put some on auction or do something because it is ridicules.
    I have way too many and only use two or three.
    I have some that are new, barly used, lightly used, normal used and heavily used.

    Look at the bright side, we don't junk no one wants and you cound not give away.
    Most frames have some value.
    We might even have some frames someone is desperate to find sitting in the closet.

    Much agreed. I recently started selling all my other rackets and keeping only the few I use. Good luck and post it on the FS/T forum. I'd be interested in seeing what you have....oh no...I might buy again...

    Will begin to post a few for sale this week. All have a 5/8 grip and may have some value like the Wilson ROK or Volkl C7Pro.

    wasn't there someone posting here that bought like 25 T/W Donnay Pro One racquets? I think he was seeking world domination

    I think we need a count or rough estimate on frames to see where we all are.
    I will count mine tomorrow.
    Maybe we could all meet about one a week and blame this on our parents like they do most things in group therapy.

    My name is Scoot and I am a racquet hoarder

    Hi Scott and welcome to the group

    Ronaldo- I'm interested in the Wilson Prostaff Rok 4 5/8.

    Does it say "Hypercarbon Double Braid" on the outside of the throat, or just a large silver "Wilson"?

    Shoot me an email when you're ready to sell- see sig for email address.

    Thanks,

    Z

    I think when we start showing our frames we should move this to
    the fs/ft area in the event someone wants to see about purchasing a frame.
    Also, I think it would be best for the op to have first shot at the frames shown if they are for sale or trade.
    (just kidding;) 1st come first serve unless someone has a fed k90 paint job

    haha, i was kinda thinking this might turn into a club unintentionally, but it's really fun, maybe we can talk about our experiences with the different rackets.

    we need someone that's not a racquet hoarder, or an ex racquet hoarder! LanEvo! well, a lot of racquets I picked up were due to the PS 6.0 craze. A few of them were clones like the pro cynetic. It was a lot softer than the PS

    Agreed, we need someone clean and racquet sober who has been there and made it through.

    I had over 200 classic frames at one point. Sold many of them in hopes that they find good homes. I'm down to roughly 80 now.

    Yes, the forum is a good place for the more well known rackets, but if no one wants to buy, just throw it on the bay and hope it gets a bid or two. That and we can trade with you guys no the forums!

    Have noticed that I have stop the urged to hoard; finally settled down to a few favs. I still have my stashed, not willing to part with it yet.
    I was able to play with some of old favorites this summer. I can see myself starting to parting with some, the question is when.

    I love hoarding racquets! I'm hoarding an Austrian PT280, A nearly new Volkl Tour 10 Mid Gen 1 and an old C10 Pro with the fishnet PJ. So maybe I'll put them up.

    haha this thread is really picking up! I even found a Ceramic Destiny. So any reason why you guys are letting go? I'm doing it because I found a main stick, but still want to try new ones.
