    6 sticks overall but 3 in the last 9 months.

    #4 was a "mistake", an OS that is expensive, HH, too light, and too stiff!

    I think for anyone over a certain age, like myself, this becomes nearly impossible. And I was never a big racquet collector or anything like a lot of people here...but I still couldn't count them all.

    A LOT.

    I'm 36 and have been playing since I was around 8. Not in strict order

    1. Some black lacquered wood frame from my parents
    2. Some light brown wood racquet with a burgandy grip from my parents
    3. Prince Pro II (aluminum)
    4. Wilson Sting
    5. Prince Response OS (x2) (I think that's what it was called - maroon racquet that was flat at the bottom of the hoop)
    6. Head Edge
    7. Head TXD
    8. Prince Spectrum Comp 90
    9. Pro Kennex Silver Ace (white version)
    10. Some Yamaha white graphite frame.
    11. Dunlop Max 300i (x2)
    12. Some random flexible Head graphite from a mainstream sporting goods store.
    13. Head Ventoris
    14. Something in the Prince CTS line - fairly light, dark aqua blue, and a pretty big head (x2)
    15. Dunlop Revelation 200g (x4)

    Didn't play tennis for 3 or 4 years, then

    16. Prince Diablo Mid (x5)
    17. Dunlop Hotmelt 200g (x5)
    18. Dunlop M-fil 200 (16 x 19) (x2) (never really used them)
    19. Prince Graphite OS (x4)
    20. Prince Diablo Midplus (x3)
    21. Fischer Pro No. 1 (x2)
    22. Fisher Pro No. 1 FT (purchased for $10, never have used it)

    Next: Maybe Dunlop Aerogel 200 4D (still looking for something similar to the Revelation 200g)

    I'm sure I missed something

    Favorites - Dunlop Max 300i, Dunlop Revelation 200g, Head Ventoris, Prince Spectrum Comp

    2 - Wilson Pro Staf Classic 7.5? - Black with purple and turquoise. I loved those racquets.
    1- Wilson Pro Staff 4.1? 4.2? - The black, heavy one with 18 mains.
    2 - Yamaha Secret 05RS - People were always asking about those.
    2 - Head Polaris, Atlantis or Genesis 660 - One of those three.
    3 - Head Pro Tour 280 - The made in Austria models
    3 - Head Radical Trisys 260 - Original Radical
    2 - Prince Graphite OS
    6 - Head Radical Twin Tube
    3 - Head Prestige
    3 - Kneissl Toms Reach Machine (Muster is still my favorite player and I got a small shop to order these for me at $220.00 a pop and I hated those racquets)
    3 - Fischer Vacuum Pro 90
    3 - Dunlop 200g Muscle Weave
    3 - Fischer Pro No. 1 (soft spot in my heart for these babies)
    3 - Dunlop Aerogel 200 (very underrated in my opinion)
    2 - Babolat Pure Drive w/ Cortex
    3 - Head Microgel Presitge MP (back on my Muster kick)

    There's a few missing but that's a pretty good summation of my racquets. I've been playing since I was 15 and I'm 32 now.

    How many have you broken might be the better question for me.

    Still have those three Roks? Any chance there's a 4 5/8 in there in decent shape that you're willing to sell? Hyper Carbon Double Braid version?

    Thx,

    I'm 19 now and i've been playing since i was 4 and never really like buying new things, stuck with what I had (maybe my mom was cheap lol XD), but i used:

    Head Radical Trisys 260
    Head Ti. Radical 98sq
    and now a Babolat Aeropro drive w/cortex
    I've been trying to find those damn Ti's again I loved them to death :(

    So thats 3 for me lol, not much of a changer, once I find something I like I tend to stick to it as long as possible.
