    1) Just curious, which racquet is that?

    2) And if you were to buy 10 racquets of the same type, which one would that be.

    For me it would be POG LB.

    Why?

    Why would someone do this? I'm sure that there will be a positive answer soon. To me, that sounds like being married and having nine mistresses identical to my wife - where's the fun in that?:confused:

    I have 10 different racquets hehe. But now that I am quite sure which one I like best I will get more of that one. The PK 7g, but I doubt I will ever have 10. Have two at the moment.

    I have 5 different racquets, but I would get maybe 10 PS85 SV for a couple hundred (Never gonna happen though....) and sell em for a few thousand then buy then one of each of the Prestige line.

  9. At one point I had a ton of Pure Drives and AeroPro Drives.
    But I am selling them all off... check the classifieds!

    Now that I have switched back to the Yonex RDS001 mid, I really
    think I should grab a bunch more. I just played a match with it for the
    first time, and I didn't even hit more than 3 second serves because I hit so
    many aces and unreturnable serves. Just amazing!
    Anyway, if I can retrain my forehand, the RDS is going to be a keeper for years. It is weird, I used to use a SW grip w/ Babolat but with the Yonex, it feels like I will need to go full western... just got it though so need to get some practice time in with it. I moved up a gripsize, so that is probably throwing me off. So maybe I'll put some on my Xmas list! Get ready TW!

    I simply can't imagine having the 1. money, 2. the need 3. the desire even, for ten of the same racket.

    I went a little crazy in the last year and a half on the auction site, but none of these frames were expensive, so I guess it's OK. I probably need to unload some of these though, since I am playing less tennis these days. <slaps forehead>

    Simple: It's the irrational fear that you will break or wear out your frames before you find that next frame that you ABSOLUTELY must try out.

    I never even strung up most of my racquets. They're mostly NIB.

    i play quite often and restring quite often so the frame takes a beating. a single frame will usually last me 1 yr to 18 months. by then the racquet co's have released "new" versions so i buy a few to last me a while, especially if i can get them cheap.
