    I don't know how you guys remember all your rackets and the dates but here is my list, in order:

    PS6.0 85 (7 years, surprise !)
    Wilson Ultra 2 (six months)
    Yonex SRQ380 (Monica Seles racket, accidentally cracked it at night)
    Yonex Cyborg 2200 (Flexible, spinny racket)
    Yonex Cyborg 2700 (Awesome frame and paintjob)
    Yonex RD7 (A classic)
    Yonex RD9 (Stiffer, much lighter version of RD7, not for me)
    Yonex Pro RD 70 long (Great leverage on serves and groundstrokes, 28" long)
    Yonex RD Ti70 long (A serve/volleying machine, tension sensitive)
    Yonex RD Ti50 (Good all-court racket, very comfortable)
    Yonex SRD Tour (monstrous swingweight)
    Yonex Ti80 (plays very well, tinny/hollow/metallic feel unusual for Yonex)
    Wilson PS6.0 95 (good all-court racket, good maneuverability)
    Fischer Pro Extreme FT (very small sweetspot, unusual feel, didn't like it)
    Yonex MP Tour 1 (great all-court racket, on the heavy side)
    Yonex RDX500 mid (nothing more to be said, wonderful !!!)

    I sold or gave away a third of these rackets and kept the rest.

    Well, at least you guys eat healthy, almost sounds like a weight-loss diet. You don't want to hear mine (hehe).

    And you're a good eater Craig....keep up the "eggscelent" work. Personally, I try and stick to the upper pyramid foods in the hope of building up some fat. That way, I can inquire the health/fitness forums 50 times regarding how to lose it.

    hehe Graham... I understood the upper pyramid all too well in the past--I peaked at 200+ lbs when I was 13/14 years old. Am 27 now, and never ever want to go there again. Nothing personal, but I really, really, really hope I don't have to buddy up with you in the Health/fitness forums in the future... ;-)

    Oh i believe it will require at least 2+ members of this forum to "buddy up" with all 140 lbs of me....that is, in order to lift my beached-whale of a body off the ground when i pass out from running.
