    One racket and only one racket. I don't break strings that often so I don't need two. Not like I can dual wield.

    I have 9, with another 3 on the way.
    I keep my old ones for sentimental value, and atm I'm trying out a lot of racquets (just about impossible to demo here). Once I find something I like I'll sell off the others.
    I have Yonex RD Tour, RDX500, PS95, Pure Storm 98 and 103, MF300, PS90, POG, ntour 90, etc.
    The Pure Storm 103 has so much power even at 65 lbs. so I probably won't hang on to it. My spare RD Tour will go as well.

    I have several racquets - 6, I believe? However, two of those are really just loaners for the 6-9 year-olds I coach, one is my old main stick with a cracked frame...I usually run either an NCode N6 or a Head Ti.S4 Pro in competitive matches (for singles), but almost always the Head stick for doubles.

    Yep. I don't. I only play sectionally, just in California tournaments. There's limited options where I live, and I got a late start to tournaments. I'm might be ranked, but very low. Dunno.

    I love my POGs. The Prince Shark is truly a great racquet BUT too much power for me, I highly recommend it to anyone who is small or weaker or old. It has a low stiffness for people with elbow trouble. My Babolat Pure Drive+ is my favorite racquet to serve with ever but very stiff.

    Cheers

    I have 4 LM Instinct Tour XLs...but I only play with two of them. The other two are my spares since the stick is discontinued now.

    I also have a Yonex RDS 001 mid which i hit around with from time to time.

    Then the ones i dont play with anymore:
    2 Head LM Radical (old main stick)
    1 Babolat Pure Control

    He is sponsored by Yonex and he doesnt know where he's standing in ranks?

    Sounds like a big lie, yonex doesnt just hand sponsorships also, the only way you will get sponsored without knowing your rank or not in the high 20~30's(Correct me if I'm wrong) is by new companys handing out sponsorships.

    Your an idiot, if they find out they will redeem your sponsorship on the spot.

    Duzza, he is full of it. You would think someone would actually know how sponsorship works before they spout about having it.

    I am Yonexer's neighbor.(ya, that guy that said he has 30 yonex racquets, is sponsored by them,and says he sells them on ****)he really is sponsored by yonex. i know, i was the one who drove them to their hq to bargain with them. he is a really good player, but like he said, he doesn't know his ranking. you can even check on the usta site:eek:ur section of california doesn't have a ranking list, so he doesn't know, and he doesn't really care much. He is trying to get a scholarship to Bolletierri tennis academy, and is training more than playing, so he might not even be ranked, i dunno. the dendy think is bull ****, as is the **** stuff, but he is sponsored by yonex, and he is a good player (and he doesn't know his ranking.)

    sorry for any trouble the little squirt caused you.

    ^^^Thanks for the laugh Yonexer.

    Really, find someone who is actually sponsored, and ask them how it works, in real life, then find an actual junior that lives in cali, who is sponsored by Yonex. Make a new username, and post under that name, and pretend you are the junior. That way you can give out someone elses name when they call BS on you, and make it believable.

    Also go to a store with a bunch of frames, bags, strings, t-shirts and grips. Stack all that stuff up in the middle of the floor of the store and take a picture of it, to post along side yourself. (Go to tennisrecruiting.net and make sure the Junior you are pretending to be doesn't have his picture up there, or else you are busted.)

    You only have 30 something posts, so no big loss.

    Or you could just tell the truth and be proud of who you are, I mean it works for me, but everyone is different.
