If you only had ONE racket for LIFE?

one of the most underrated rackets in the past 15 years.
It was glorious. Played with the Diablo starting in 2005 when I returned to tennis after not playing for years. Went to Chicago Golf & Tennis, tried a bunch of racquets on their demo lane and the Diablo was the winner. Played a ton of leagues, tournaments (it was my adult tennis peak) with Diablos for maybe about 5-6 years. Then I inexplicably became a racquet junkie - and went through all sorts of frames, just because I could. My Diablos were lost in the shuffle - one was broke, another I left at a tournament; I bought a third, but then sold it. By the time I wanted Diablo to be my frame again, it was off the market. They're still out there on ****.

It was underrated - I just don't think that many people knew about it. It was during Prince's decline compared to other brands. Though, I thought Capriati used a Diablo paint job for a while; I'm not sure.

Been huntin' down the twin tubular radical tour "Zebra" MP for years. I have amassed 3 of these beasts, gettin' harder to find good specimens. Hit's like a mac' truck. Feels like crushing a stick of butter with grahm cracker crust center. A most unique PJ. Epoxy 90s gnarly texture on the throat and frame. Talk about p-p-p-pow, aggro-smashin' satisfaction (even when I lose). Holds onto balls long enough' for you to take a dump, read the paper, and smoke a J all at the same time. But I'll take anything classic head 18x20

As a c10 user for over 60 years I'd really love to try that k7 red. I was eyeing it online awhile back.
It really has the old school soft feel in a much lighter package and much more user friendly over the C10 Pro. There is a nice balance of power, control, spin and the comfort is off the charts. Don't get me wrong, the C10 Pro is probably one of the best players frame's ever IMO but these days the weight is just way too much for my shoulder. I used the C10 Pro for about 5 years and the feel is one of best!! Nowadays about 330 grams strung is about all the weight I need. The K7 Red is light enough where some weight can be added. I highly recommend the Angell K7 Red for players that appreciate the soft plush feel!

Sounds like a great stick. I may have to pick one up soon!
 
If only one choice, I’d go Head Prestige/Classic 660, really good for my younger days and would give me extra room for older days! But if I could keep as fit as Johnny Mac over the next few decades, my perfect wand would be either the PT280 or Vacuum Pro 98.

I wish. All are either 4 1/4 and 4 3/8
I got a couple in 1/4 . Leased one up to like 355 swing weight and the other bone stock. Don’t know why these never caught on like pogs. The denser patter and 1/2 length really make them a great hit. I put them up there with my nxg graphite oversiZe, tt Warrior oversiZe, blade 104sw and Agassi limited as my favorite oversiZe racquets to hit with ever
