    I think it is time for an updated show your sticks thread. No shoes, bags, clothes, hats or ball machines.

    Racquets or rackets only....

    Ooops the super rd 95 was in hiding....here she is....with my 4 main friends currently residing in my bag.....

    I think there are only a couple still missing.

    That's it for all the sticks in my house....let's see your sticks!

    How much does that tape on the top of the frame change the balance of the stick?

    I have always used gamma or babolat protective tape....it weighs nearly zero....one strip only is all I ever put on really helps keep my bumpers from getting beat up.

    Almost all of the frames have lead at 3 / 9 and you can see the gamers have leather grips which add weight in the handle. No lead on the prestige frames, the caps do the job for me.

    Mint.....one is 4 1/2 one is 4 5/8 babolat leather grip on the 4 1/2 and thinner TW grip on the 4 5/8 - they set up pretty close.

    I seriously doubt there is a mark on either......

    I bought them when I was seriously into prince....POGS and PG 640....

    As you can see POGS are gone, only the 1 640 and the 2 equipe 95's remain.

    The Approach honestly I can't remember where that came from....I have only hit with it once......

    I am playing Head only now for the most part....the St vincent comes out on occasion only for a brief hit the 200g's jumped back in the bag for a couple weeks 2 years ago but the Prestige/radical combo bumped em back out....and have been in ever since....the 4 you see are home in the bag.....I am hunting one more i prestige MP 4 1/2 grip glossy finish preferred.
    Must be mint and must be cheap.....no paintjobs for me, the austrian i prestige are absolute butter.

    Once I find that I think it is time to cull the herd.

    Honestly that's why I started the thread....I think my racquet ho'g days are coming to a close....I have the 2 107 ti radicals ready to go when I start to slow down.......

    Nothing beats Austrian thunder!!!!!

    You got some nice classic sticks there! I always wondered how the Equipe stacked up to the Pro Staff 6.1.

    LOL it's not that bad anymore really, I have really cleared inventory and plan to clear more soon......3 POGS, 4 PG 640's, and 4 PSC 6.1's and 3 Wilson tour 95's are recent culls.

    The Volkl is my wife's and the 4 srq 500's are my daughters.....I can't remember who hit the Polaris-certainly not me:)

    Keepers here are the St Vincent PS 85 the mint 200g the 4 Heads in the bag and the 2 ti rad 107's....everything else is just eye candy....

    I am not a racquetaholic:oops: I passed on a cheap k factor 6.1 just yesterday!!!

    Of course if any racquetaholics want to share.......I might get some ideas of new racquets I might need:shock:

    I hope TC understands that the command 'present arms' means to salute.
