    heh...well the back-up is for string breakage, no?
    I don't know what you mean by weather conditions though.
    And smashing racquets is only cool if you're a pro.
    Fine, maybe 3 racquets. Some people have different brands of racquets though. That can't be good for your game, and if you aren't using them, it's a waste of money!

    weather conditions....say its cold so you would want lower tensioned strings...and say its hot/humid out then you will want higher tensioned strings. :p

    I am currently playing with the Tour 90, but am waiting on my KBlade Tours to arrive to make the switch. I have been using my coach's KBlade for the past couple weeks trying it out and I love it.

    I started with the Pure Drives, went onto the M-Fils, then the Pure Storms, and have been using the Tour 90 for quite awhile now.

    ^^^ You're just not the collector (or hoarding) type......

    For some, it is an addiction :)

    A lot of people keep their old rackets for sentimental value, memories of first tournaments and things like that.

    So my question is, why not? If you enjoy being a collector there is no real harm in it!

    Generally the higher level you play at the more you'll notice slightest differences in tension.

    That depends on how much you play and how often you break strings. See Jollyroger's guide on how many racquets you should get.

    My Little Collection

    I mainly play with the iPrestiges MP. The PT630 is rarely used, the PT280 is my favorite, The MG Radical came from Austria and is leaded up to the PT280 weight and balance...

    After being unhappy with Nike CB1.3, I decided to try custom tennis shoes. It's called miAdidas Barricade 5. You can decide your own one too. http://www.miadidas.com/us/Main.action

    I still got them lol..i used the n90 again last night bc i was curious about it again...so i dug deep in my wilson bag and whipped it out ;) I played pretty well with it again so Im going to take a risk and use it for my tournament this coming friday. My only negative comment about the speed pro is my backhand isnt solid enough. The N90 imo is much better for me on backhands...i know I switch back and forth a lot between racquets so sorry!lol :oops:

    ^^ the racquets aren't facing the same direction ;) (look at the top inside of the hoop, the throat, and also 5 o clock on the hoop)

    Those are Nsix-one Tour 90s.

    Different runs had the silver or black logos......so, not really twins. :)
