Discussion in 'Racquets' started by POGO, Jun 2, 2005.
In case strings break/weather conditions for diff. tensions/ you feel angry at your racquet...etc
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.
Well here it goes trying to get these pictures to work... Bear with me!

Now just waiting on my two KBlade Tours to arrive
Nice little collection. Which do you currently play with??
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.
what's the point of having 365+ rackets?
^^^ 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!
My, you ladies are sensitive
Generally the higher level you play at the more you'll notice slightest differences in tension.
no, i think that perfect # of racquets is 2-3 that's all.
That depends on how much you play and how often you break strings. See Jollyroger's guide on how many racquets you should get.
Just got done putting the double line on the strings, still gotta toss an overgrip on one of them, haha
nice are you with the aero or the ltd?
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...
One for every day of the year.
lol yeah.... also why would you buy a racket then not like it and give it away... why not keep it... they dont take that much room up...
Roger Federer would be smiling

man....u guys have some crazy gear!....this might sound like a dumb question...I'm wondering where u guys get those smiley face vibe dampeners

Head Microgel Radical Mid Plus
Head Intelligence Prestige Mid Plus
Head Trisys 300 Mid

my K-Six One 95 18x20 strung with technifibre redcode
Actually, down here, you can get them in every tennis shop for $1.25/apiece. Send me an email and I can ship you a few if you'd like...
It's just a cheap Babolat model, bought in 2004.

Whats the head size?
Nice collection of rackets and guitar:twisted:
gorgeous! and awesome username :twisted:
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
holy smokes! Your photos are really good. What camera are you using?
My weapons aka twins...both strung with big banger alu power rough 55/nrg2 52
Hey Mario, what ever happened to your new Head racquets
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
6 Babolat Pure Storm Tour - all weight and balance matched - the last 4 was custom made for me directly by Babolat France - see the serial number on them 1,2,3 & 4 February/02 2009:
damn...i though you were going to sell them
I am def. selling my k88's, k90's, and head microgel prestige mid if anyone wants those lol...not sure yet about the n90s though
i've always though you loved the k90s more
I first loved the n90 much more....then i liked the k90....now i find that the n90 is amazing again.
how much did this cost you? just wondering
^^ 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)
Sorry if i'm being a bit off-topic, but can i ask what kind of wilson racquet those twins are?? i'm sure it's ncode but dunno what's its exact model!?
Those are Nsix-one Tour 90s.
Different runs had the silver or black logos......so, not really twins.
