    No love?

    It seems like a lot of people do not have APD/APDC collections of any sort, lol.
    Anyone have any ideas as to why??:neutral:

    I don't understand that. You have the exact opposites. One of them is one of the most powerful rackets there is, and the other is one of the least powerful. I understand if all of your frames are 95 and below or all 98 and above, but having rackets that play totally different is a stupid move, IMHO.

    Red Stars are 98 sq. inches. It's a bit much for me... I prefer 95 or less but I need a bit more room nowadays when playing better players on clay... I thought about buying Kneissl White Stars but they're heavier +15g and have the same balance... so tweaking them would be a bit more difficult... I mean if I added enough weight so they were quite HL balanced they would bump up being too heavy and the sw on the White Stars is quite a bit high for my liking.

    Mario and kal-el 34 nice racket but how can you afford them??? you must be really hard workers or have excellent paid jobs. i wish i could find a job but i'm only 13(14 in june) so that limits me to crapy jobs like paper runs and that crap.

    You take care of your racquets although you've got so many... RESPECT!

    I don't have as many frames but am a bit cautious with them. I'm a bit of an extremist when it comes to extra protection. I use 2 layers of head tape... one which goes around the entire frame (from about 7 o'clock to 5 o'clock) and one extra layer for the bumper guard. I know it's crazy but it's carefully thought through. A layer of head tape to cover the bumper guard weighs 3g and a layer to cover the entire head weighs 8g. This is the best way to add additional weight to the head proportionally. You can't place lead as regularly... that is you can but it would be much more than those 11g. In my experience such way of adding weight makes the sweetspot feel more proportional.

    Will do ;) I'll try to do it tomorrow, it's a bit late here (11 pm) and I have work to do in the lab straight in the morning for my masters piece (Phytoextraction of heavy metals with the use of energy plants.) so I have to get some sleep.

    P.S.: I prepare my friends earlier keeping in my mind that the head tape ads weight... so "bare" frames are more HL than I like but after adding the head tape their just right :)

    Cheers!
