    I use them at times, as you would guess it's not that often. Also, I can't really compare the Mega Age to the Wilsons as I've never played a PSC.

    10 of the same frame, I can understand. Frames are discontinued after 1-2years and one doesn't want to mess with their holy grail.

    10 different frames in a bag and you take them all out onto the court, :confused:

    eg, I use 2 rackets during the hitting because I have sweaty hands, and I need to rotate to let the grip of the rackets dry. Simple :)

    Thanks heaps for the assistance Lavs!!:)

    They are actually BA98, the set up use to be X-ones mains, gosen micro 54/56

    mids was a tad underpowered for me, so had to go with the 98's

    I can see you still using the mids, very very smooth racquet indeed. Feel is comparable to the pt57a's IMO

    Thank you for your feedback. Part of me agrees with your comment, because the photos you posted in this thread in the past were far more informative. You may wish to consider starting a serious discussion with the forum management administration about quality control of pictures that folks are positing these days.

    Quick update: that Fischer is no more. I'm currently really depressed and thought that I could get better by releasing some of my emotions by smashing it. Ended up with me almost breaking down completely whilst smashing it (I literally teared up and got frustrated).

    Anyway, here's how it looks now.

    Looks like a warranty claim to me. :) An overhead that went really wrong. ;-) Just send it back to Fischer and I'm sure they will give you a new one- oh, wait a minute. Or maybe Pacific will just give you one of their new models to replace it. It's obviously defective. Good Luck.

    Yes, I know- I was trying to be funny. My wife says my sense of humor goes over people's heads, probably even worse over the internet.

    Obviously it's not a warranty claim either. He obviously beat the $h^* out of it. ;-)

    No, no, you were correct the first time. This is clearly a quality control issue. The folks at Fischer will be embarrassed by this. They don't want to keep losing market share to Snauwaert or Spalding.

    i get mad and throw things, it's called a towel, not my racquet, but i have cracked a pure drive in a match while being frustrated. I'd call that "hulk smash"

    I perhaps could've claimed the crack I discovered in the throat just after I bought it, or I could just say it spread:)

    Quite a bad pic taken with my iPhone but it will do the trick. Notice the 2 new sticks on the left which have replaced my long time partners on the right (Toalson Forty Love Arrow, an awesome racket).

    Thank you Sir!

    Yes, indeed! I actually got it last Saturday. Bought used in an amazing shape. Stringed 2 rackets so far; I was dying to put some strings on the brand new BLX PS 6.1 90 (the one with the leather grip) so I put a cheap wilson tournament nylon on it just to play with it. Too bad it rained all day haha

    I got them from our local Toalson rep here in Argentina. I heard they are quite hard to find worldwide, but the struggle worths it IMO. Amazing sticks for the money!

    These shoes are great! Alot of support, especially at the back of shoe and very light weight. I'd recommend them.:)

    My beloved dunlop aerogel 4d 300 tours, and an old prince speed port tour. That was one hell of a stick.

    Which bag do you like more? The Wilson Federer bag, or the Aero 12 pack? Love to hear your thoughts on the Federer bag.

    I like the fed bag more. The straps on the top of the aero are really annoying when you're trying to get stuff out. The durability for both is a bout equal but the fed bag doesn't hold it's shape as well as the aero. They both hold their shape but the aero is more rigid. The fed bag has more room too. My aero is the 6 bag though but, my friend has the 12.
