    What frame color really says about you

    At my club, I've started to notice that many ex-cons seem to use white racquets.

    As a matter of fact, I've seen only two players using white frames who have not done time (one is a politician, and the other one is a drug addict). Come to think of it, if you look at the tour you'll find that those who use white racquets are pretty shady, too.

    For this reason, I often advise people to avoid this color when selecting a racquet. "White, huh? Let me guess…man1?" It's crazy, but when I say this a lot of them get defensive. I think it just shows they've got something to hide.

    Now, all you white-racquet-users out there are probably reading this and getting angry. That's ok, because you're probably in jail right now. Your responses will just prove I'm right.

    No offense everybody, I know there are exceptions. These are just my observations, so no personal attacks, & have a nice day.

    This is very interesting, I'll have to try and analyze the players I see using white rackets. White is an unusual color for a tennis racket.

    How do you even know if there ex-cons or not. I don't even notice that kind of stuff and theres only like one white racquet that i can think of which is the TT warrior.

    Hingis was pretty fond of all-white racquets too....RQti-1700 and the MP-5i HS.

    I think analysis of clothes says more than a racquet, since feel and control and other factors say a lot about a racquet. Look at the Volkl racquet, the original v shaped ones....some of them play pretty good, but I have to admit, I was a little turned off by the awkward shape. Now I will be using Volkl racquets, maybe the yellow colour and the v shape will remind people, I am an alien.

    I'm sorry that I got involved in this. I don not want to be a part of this meaningless flames (spam). What a bad beginning on this forum :(
