    1990 - 1993 Yamaha Secret 20

    (Summer) 2004 Wilson PS 6.1 Stretch - Free racquet from cousin
    (Spring) 2005 Wilson PS 6.1 Classic - Free again from cousin
    (Summer) 2005 Dunlop Max 200G - Going back to classics
    (Late summer) 2005 Wilson PS 6.0 85 (China Mod) - Probably going to stick with this one for a while
    (Current) 2005 - Wilson PS 6.0 85 (St. Vincent Mod) - Def. going to stick with this one.

    Seems like I keep going back to the past. Before I know it I'll probably using aluminum and woodies. ^_^

    That CTS Blast brings back memories! Not exactly a "pro" racquet but surprisingly good racquet in the time of "wide bodies". Prince must have released a dozen of similiar framed (nicely colored) raquets. CTS xyz. Rafter used a CTS Response? I had it for about five years!

    2005 - nCode Tour 90 (bad feel, leading to poor control)

    2006 - maybe LM Prest MID - have to try it yet. Thinking also of the Fischer Pro #1... who knows?

    Me too.

    I look back on my own racket history and wonder "What was I thinking?" sometimes. The bolded sticks in my history (below) were nutty departures from the kind of racket that "worked" for me.

    But some of these people make my path seem quite consistent(!). Whimsy is weird....

    1969 - TA Davis (can't remember model, but it was the most beautiful racket ever ... black throat & shoulders, natural maple with red & silver accents ... lots of artistic detailing ... must have had ten layers of lacquer ... too whippy in throat ... wasn't really the right racket for me, I just didn't recognize it.)
    1971 - Spalding Something-or-other (An over-reaction from the above. Not "it".)
    1971 - Jack Kramer
    1974 - Dunlop Fort
    1975 - Kramer Pro Staff (And back and forth to Dunlop repeatedly...)
    1976 - Head Master (aluminim; blue throat ... went whippy too fast.)
    1976 - Yonex 8700 (The green one. Another mistake I didn't recognize for too long. I had *very little* control, but Man! I could crush the ball with that sucker!)
    1978 - Head Arthur Ashe Comp II
    1978 - MatchMate Graphite (One sweet stick! I almost went into depression when this Northridge CA company folded.)
    1991 - Some $60 pre-strung Estusa (Only played for giggles; figured any racket would do....)
    2003 - Yonex V-Con 17 MP

    95-96 - my dad's prince vortex
    96-05 - volkl VX1
    05 - prince O3 tour, broke a volkl VX1 from 9 years of stringing it 6 lbs over recommended. I couldn't hit with it with anything under 70lbs and couldn't find replacements so decided to switch this year.

    1985 I picked up a racquet for the first time when I was 6.
    my first racuet was a woody Dunlop Junior which I used until I was about 13 because never had money to get another one.
    between 1992 and 1995 I played with random borrowed racquets (usually POGs and Dunlops).
    1995 bought my first POG (I finally owned a decent adult racquet).
    2001 switch to Yonex SRQ-500 - owned as many as 4 of them
    2002 Yonex MP2i owned one and never crazy about it.
    2002 Yonex RD Ti-50 , I currently own 3 and looks like we're going steady.

    1977? - warped Slazenger woodie
    1995 - an old used white HEAD ceramic racquet with oldddd strings
    1998 - Prince Thunderbolt MP (28.5" long .... not the best for starting to learn proper mechanics on)
    2000 - Prince Thunderlite MP (surprisingly good racquet)
    2002 - Head PC600 (awesome racquet... too good for my game at the time)
    2003 - Yonex Ti-70 MP, Yonex Ti-70 mid - (both nice racquets... the mid was too demanding)
    2004 - Yonex RDX500 mid (nice plush control racquet... decided it was time to go to a bigger headsize though)
    2005 - HEAD FXP TOUR - almost went to Bab Pure Drive, but decided for Control over Power.... playing well with this racquet... no reason to switch for a long time now....

    I started back in 2003 with a Wilson racquet from WalMart. Spring, I got a Head Ti.S5. Then I used a Wilson HyperHammer 4.3 OS. Summer 2004 I switch to Head Liquidmetal 5's. Beginning of 2005, I have Prince NXG Tour MP's... now I'm using two Yonex RDX 500 MP's and love 'em. They've felt the best of any racquet I'ved played with. I also have a Slazenger X1 that I just mess around with. It's not something I really like hittin' ground strokes with. But I serve well with it! I'm a 3.5 or so baseliner.

    199? - can't remember the exact year nor the exact racquet but it was a cheap Dunlop from K-mart or something like that.

    2004 Dec. - TiS2, awesome tweener racquet. but it had too much power which is why...

    2005 Sept.-Oct. - i started using my dad's 20 year old Yonex R-27! then i got a Yonex R-7 from the place i work. both heavy compared to the Ti, but both awesome racquets.

    Strange road, indeed. Just curious, did you actually demo those sticks before purchasing? I ask because I don't see a "pattern" of type....

    Well KK let me see...
    I only playtested the Estusa, PS Tour, Yonex, Pure Storm.

    Switching has to do with "good deals" (being able to sell for the price i bought them for if i didn't like them) or the power vs control thing. To concentrate on the last 7:

    Bought the Pure Drive because of bad fitnesslevel. Needed more power. I broke one Pure Drive, decided to sell the other one and switch to the Prince.
    I started playing well again with the Warrior so i figured i'd get the PS Tour for more control. Played like heaven on a good day, not so good on a bad day, so i switched to the Pure Storm. Could get an extremely good deal on the Yonex, so "playtested" them and sold again. Now i feel i need more control, less power then the Storm, so i decided to get the Fischer (good deal again), because it meets all my specs: About 8-9 pts Headlight, midplus, 320 unstrung weight and quite flexy but not too (63).

    During the course of approximately 12 years (1993-2005) (Age 9-21):

    ~1993-1995 varius prince and Jr. head radicals.. just starting to play tennis (hitting in the driveway with dad and such..)

    ~1995-1999 Dunlop Revelation Tour MP
    --Just starting to get competitive. I bought this racquet without ever hitting with it. Mistake 1: I only got 1 of them. My first "real frame." It looked and felt good, and to a 10 year old, that was good enough reason to have it. 10 years later today, I can say It was the best racquet I've ever played with to this day. Around 1996-1997 I picked up another one of these (2nd version paintjob) before they were discontinued so I had two. (Although it may not be best suited to my current playing style)

    ~1999-2000 Dunlop Revelation Tour pro
    --On a hunt for a replacement for my broken poor revelation tour (which broke in half at the handle off a service return), and my other cracked one, I picked up the tour Pro. Definitely a heaver racquet geared towards a bigger stronger game, however I just couldn't get used to the added weight, thinner beam, etc.. after playing so long with the rev tours.

    ~2000-2002 Dunlop Revelation Tour Pro Exact
    --Still searching for a replacement for my rev tours, I picked a few of these up dirt cheap at sports authority. They had the wide beam and were very close to the revelation tours except a tad lighter. After adding lead tape I couldn't find the zone with these bad boys either.

    ~2002-current Dunlop Hot Melt 200g
    -- It was time for a change. After the never ending hunt for revelation tour replacments, I decided it just wasn't the best racquet for my Game anymore. I picked up the new 200g's and adapted to them. I had recently switched from a 2handed to a 1 handed forehand and I had grown quite a bit so I decided to try something a little heavier, with a little more control. Its worked out pretty well although sometimes I find it underpowered. I think its helped on my serve some.

    ...So over the years I've played with several different frames, but one thing has been the same... I was always a dunlop person..

    I'll throw in a post for my dad too:

    ~late 1970's some aluminum stick
    ~Early 1980's - Present
    -- Dunlop Max300i 85. Similar to the old Max 200g. Yes he still uses it (has around 8 of them). Demo'd nearly everything since and keeps going back.
