    I am a regular tournament player here in Thailand; there are tournaments happening nearly every week, but since it's the holidays for most of the junior players, the next tournament is Jan. 13. Anyhoo, here's my setup.

    Racket: Yonex RDS001 MP
    Strings: Kirschbaum Super Smask 16@54lbs
    Bag: Yonex ProSeries 9-Pack
    Overgrip: Yonex Super Grap
    Shoes: Adidas Barricade II

    BTW, I'm not sponsored by Yonex, I can ask my coach to get the stuff cheap for me like half price because she has a Yonex sponsorship

    That's my collection.

    The Yonex RD-7's are my main frames strung with Kirsch SSH
    Usually use Tourna or any cheap white grip other than Wilson Pro.

    I play 18s now, and with school, it's hard to find time for all the tournaments. I'll probably play enough to make the top 800 Mens in Aus.

    You know with stuff like this australia is quite funny, i hit with a guy who i can now put up a decent match against, i dont know if i can win but i have gone like 5-7 against him and stuff like that. He can beat 2 kids that have moved to adelaide and now have pretty good rankings but he has never played a ranking tournament. There isnt enough opportunities outside of cities.

    Racquets:
    2x POG Mids ( currently demoing and thinking about a storm, rds001 mp or a Nblade)
    Strings: Babolat Attraction Power (off my reel) main and BB orig Crosses
    Grips: Crap Synthetic One (got nasty blisters from leather) with Yonex Supergrap overs.
    Bag: Prince 12 pack
    Shoes: Barricade 4s
    Machine: TST Pro 200
    Reels: Babolat Attraction Power, Klip Synthetic Gut, Kirschbaum Super Smash, ( signum pro poly plasma soon)


    Sorry for the colours, im hella bored and just experimenthing to see what ya can do

    Why do you need so many? I mean, if you break a string on no. 1 and get it restrung, you'd barely be onto no.2

    judging by his gear, id say he's pretty good (i.e. highly ranked). I dont know many juniors who play with VS. Either that or he's really rich. Either way more power to him

    lol i think i detect a hint of jealousy... to be honest guys, not so sound like broken record or anything... but its how you play that counts, not your equipment, or amount of it. end of story

    I think if i was a top ranked junior i would only get 4 or 5. And just buy a machine with the left over money.

    Can you take pics of all your racquets?

    not really jealousy, i'm just cynical. Overly cynical in some cases, which i will admit.


    If he's a better player, i could really care less what he played with :p It could be a little kiddie racquet.


    If you really do have all that stuff, that's freakin sweet. Send some my way :)!
