    Ask Skraggle (sp?) ... you're probably only about a thrid or a quarter of his, I think.

    Yeah I have to say the Skraggle pretty much dominates everybody. His collection is amazing.

    Why bother about the clothes? They can be stuffed under the bed. Make room for your collection, man! :mrgreen:

    You know, if there is any place in the U.S. that sell Redondo 93's, I might just make some room...

    No, no, get away from me. Stop this madness.

    Where is my Haldol?

    The Redondo's are readily available in Asia. If you need more info you can try looking for jonolau's or ericwong's profile and mail him. He should be able to help. I got my Core 1 #6 from Singapore when my son was there two weeks ago. (And the Redondo's available too.)

    If you want to get in touch with the shop, please email me.

    And, BTW, what's a Haldol?

    Woo, that hurt, that hurt me bad. I ask myself the same question. How can I play with anyone of them on a regular basis when I have 40+ frames? This is why I am not going to buy any more frames this year in hopes of settling down with one frame and use it consistently and develop my game from there.

    Right now I am using the Redondo 98' and I like it a lot for its comfort. It is really a comfortable frame and fits my style of play well. It is probably the most comfortable frame I've ever used (and I have used quite a few). I like to volley and it is an excellent volleying stick; it also has some usable power on the serve and groundstrokes, too.

    Anirut, thanks for the info, man. Haldol is a drug in the anti-psychotics class.

    Hawaii5.0 back awhile ago on the old msg board said he had somewhere around 1000 rackets. Not sure if he was kidding, but somehow I have a feeling he wasn't.

    I have close to 300, but I warn you better stop before too late.
    I believe Woodtennis has the most collection...

    Ok 300 is a lot but what i find interesting is the fact that your collection is very valueble and that most rackets are rare and collector's items, for me you are the winner Tandayu.

    You could buy every possible permutation of Vantage racquets to add to your collection and then advise anyone who wants info on how one of them plays.

    Lol, I can imagine Skraggle thinking to himself, "Which racquet shall I use today?" with all those racquets.
