If you find a racket that you really like, hoard them.
You know, your point about flex actually makes quite a bit of sense.
It's funny at first, I wasn't sold on the Pro Tours (actually preferred the old Fischer Vacuum Pro 90 - which have since been sold) and only appreciated their quality after sometime with the Babolats. Question now is if I sell some of the old prestiges that I picked up and focus on the Pro Tours - have a nagging feeling that I'll regret selling them though...
