MMM nice nice!!!!!
L4, what's the difference though?
L5 was initial, limited run and they play softer. Made in Austria. Very rare and hard to find.
Some of initial batches of L4 were Made in Austria, then in China.
Playing with 2 Head PT57A's, but looking to move them on and demo cheaper frames!
Why cant HEAD just sells these racquets like this and call them the "Murray Radical" or "Radical Murray Competition" Something along those line like they Did with Arthur Ashe and Vilas.
Then they'd have to sell the Djokovic Speed and the Berdych Instinct.
Their whole marketing scheme I find bizarre.
The prestige S rackets are good in theory but they are not that great to play with.
it has been a while and my collection got significantly bigger :shock:

Why do you need 6 bags?
I suppose for the same reason I need 18 pairs of tennis shoes, and when I work out what that is I'll let you know .
Long story but I travel a lot internationally and I've got a real thing for the "right" luggage for the job - if Tumi or Briggs and Riley made a tennis bag I'd have one . Over they years I've acquired the tennis bags and then later come across something that fitted my needs better (or I just liked the design) so I bought it. They're not exactly expensive and worth nothing second hand so I just keep them and rotate occasionally. At the moment I'm switching between the Nike and Tec ATP (both of which are extremely well designed and made) but sometimes I'll use one of the others. I also need somewhere to keep the racquets when I'm not using them.
Fair point. I hear you. I currently have 2 because, as you said, there's worthless second hand. If only you could trade-in old tennis gear when you upgraded...
That would be great...but then we wouldn't have this thread, and I've trawled all of it over the last few days. We're seriously addicted .
Angell TC 100 & Vantage 95 plus pallets, grommets, and more
I love checking out this thread, it makes me feel more normal with the fact I have so many racquets, shoes, bags, and now strings I will pull out my Wilson Kobra Tours tomorrow. Seeing yours just reminded me I haven't hit with them for awhile! I also need to update pics. Great collection, it's nice to see others love for the sport!
Very nice. I'm glad I'm not the only 1 keeping the World Economy afloat.
Thanks both. I'm now eyeing up the 2015 Tec ATP endurance bag as it looks like it has slightly more interesting organisational features...it's an illness .
^^ I find that once my racquet collection reaches "critical mass" (about this size) i start to feel guilty feeding my kids 2 minute noodles all the time just so i can buy more racquets and start purging them on ****. Which of course gives me more money to buy more racquets with
moved my tennis stuff in a few days ago. still have 4 more prince japanese graphites coming in soon
^^spent all money on gear, none left for furniture. Much respect.
in the process of moving!
He's the ultimate tennis monk.
I see he's a fan of oversize frames
So beautiful !! Where did you get these beauty ?
I bought them of Vidda, I'm looking at selling them though (they are in the Europe/UK for sale section). They are wonderful frames, so solid.
thanks mate !!
Nice to see some people have decent cameras!
Latest addi(c?)tion... The 310 g version. I installed a Dunlop leather grip, base weight is 323 g now. Strung, and with overgrip, it's 348 g. Rather headlight, dare I say, too.
Will be fun to see how it hits. I knew some day I had to try out a Yonex with that isometric head shape
^^Tour G 310 is one of the best racquets I've hit with but, yeah, a grip change was needed.
Very nice Instinct XLs. I have two of the regular also.
Customised all my racquets to 11.5oz 5pts HL.
^^I learned to play tennis on the nTour. Great line of sticks.
I started with d Hammer 6.2, HH 5.3, HH 5.2, H-Tour, N-Tour... I wish that Wilson did not discontinue this line. I don't like d Burn series.
How come the pro stock rackets are in the FS section?
