    How many years should you expect to get out of a racket? Do they get played out. I typically play 6-8 hrs a week and go thru a set of multis at least once a month. Just curious if I would feel a diffrence after two years?

    Taking into consideration it is treated very well never left in the heat or cold or direct sunlight.

    If you take care of them well, they should last you well over 2 years.

    I used 3 Hyper Pro Staff 6.1s in rotation for 4 years. I played at least 12 hours a week during the warmer months (March-November) and a couple times a week when it was colder.

    After 4 years, I honestly felt like the frames were worn out. May have been in my head, or it may have been because I was looking at updating to the nCode 6.1. Who knows?

    On the other side of the coin, there are plenty of people who still use older models, and have been doing so for years.
