    What would you get if you only had a grocery shopping plastic bag (one where you would put your purchases in and carry home) and you went into Tennis Warehouse (if there is one) and you could pick anything you wanted...FOR FREE? :twisted:

    Me: 2 Fischer M Pro Number 1 98 going up and down, a reel of yonex supergraps (lime green), 1/4 inch Unique lead tape, luxilon alu power, msv focus hex, 15 packs of Babolat VS Natural Gut 16, 3 packs of NXT 16, and 3 packs of Technifibre X-One Biphase.

    You? :)

    1 MGPMP, 1 MGPP, 25 sets of string, 2 reels of yonex supergrap, as many $200 gift cards I can find and look for some of those nylon bags that come with the prokennex racquets so I can take more things.

    I used to use rubberbands...it just feels different with the actual absorbers.

    The property deed to the store.

    That would fit in the bag, right?

    Great idea for a thread.

    The first items I would buy would be a couple of those really big head racket bags. That would give me more room to shove more freestuff in - one carrier bag just wouldn't be enough to raid Tennis Warehouse with. Next, I would get some rackets - KPS88s, K90s and some YouTek Speed Pros. Maybe 6 of each racket because the massive racket bags would give me more space to fit stuff in. Then I would move on to strings, a few reels of Ashaway Kevlar in 18 gauge, lots of Babolat VS Touch, a couple of reels of Alu Rough, a reel or two of Lux M2 and 2 reels of Babolat Revenge.

    That would definitely be the bulk of my "shopping trip" to TW but there are certainly other things I wouldn't mind picking up. I'd get as many Babolat Custom dampeners as I could and some of the new Nike clothing range - perhaps a couple of warmup tracksuits, some tops and shorts. Finally, a couple of pairs of Babolat Propulse 2 shoes.

    I would've grabbed a lot but with any luck, the two racket bags and one carrier bag would have made it possible. I would've thought that the rest of you guys would've "bought" a load of stuff to last you ages but some of you seem to have been quite conservative.

    Dang, that would be hard to choose, but:

    - at least 2 pairs of Adidas Barricade V
    - 2 MGPMP
    - 2 Youtek Speed MP 18x20
    - 4 AG 4D 300 Tour
    - as many Kirschbaum PLII 19 as I could carry
    - 20 Babolat Skin Feel replacement grips

    and many other things I can't even think as of now.

    Lol, do all of them fit into the plastic bag?:D

    I'd stuff as much Babolat Natural Gut as possible in there, then turn around and sell it all and buy a nice house on the French Riviera.

    i would take my grocery bag to TW then throw it into the garbage can and take "Becker Series Pro Bag w/Wheels", and fill it with the following :

    1 Wilson Grand Slam Super Six :D
    1 Wilson Pro Overgrip Player Pack
    2 Luxilon Alu rough Reel
    10 packs of Babolat Natural Gut 17g
    1 Wilson Head Tape
    3 Unique 1/4 Lead Tape
    2 Boris Becker 11 4 1/4
    3 Babolat Pure Drive GT Plus 4 1/4
    2 K 6 1 Tour 4 1/4
    1 K Pro staff 88 4 1/4

    Take a box of tennis balls with hands.

    Then grab the clothing rack and shove as much as i can into the bag.

    ---> i would then continue to sell the clothing that i does not fit, sell the racquets i dont like, then sell the Becker bag and buy some more racquets and overgrips and such from TW.

    :D

    Um, rackets take up space. For the same space as a $200 racket, you could probably get $1000 worth of VS gut.

    you have to think outside the box haha. just carry 2 bags 1 on each shoulder and the other like a backpack. I wouldn't just go to tw and leave with a bag of goodies. I would use the plastic grocery bag as a garbage for tissues because I will be crying with joy
