Ironically I'm playing less tennis than I have at any other time in my life (besides grad school) but I have the most racquets I've ever had at once haha. The Clash is my go-to, and when I'm feeling good I'll use the Blades.

That's a great collection. I've always been interested in checking out Technifibre. What frames did you play with before settling on this line?
I reread your your comment and noticed that you referred to having tested or played with 40 different racquets. You don't have to list them all. Just wondering what prompted you to move to Technifibre and what were your favorite frames prior to making the decision to stick with Technifibre?

I've started with Babolat Pure Strike Gen2 (Project OneSeven) which was great until my tennis elbow forced me to switch something softer. I've been testing Blades (v5 onwards in different configurations). Pure Strikes Gen3, ProStaff v11 and many others. Somewhere read that Tecnifibre TF40 it's simialar for my first love (Project OneSeven) and gave a try. It wasn't great but liked few aspects and later had opportunity to try T-Fight 305 XTC which still it's my love. Currently waiting for new TF line and soon will have it (cannot wait).

Same here. Hardly get to play these days thanks to having a 2yr old toddler & double-jobs to help pay nursery fees! Play once a fortnight at best but now seen my collection grow to over 60 frames. Go to match racquet is DR98.

Yikes, that sounds rough. At this point really my biggest issue is not knowing many people to hit with, and my body not being able to handle hitting at a respectable level more than about once a week. Your situation is definitely a more legitimate reason not to hit often. I hope you get to a point soon where you can hit as often as you want!

PJ and semi PJ!
Works fine, plush and stable.

I love your customization. I extended the handle of one of my Dunlops a few years ago, going from 27" to 27.5". I drilled some small holes around the handle for the epoxy to grip on to, poured epoxy into the handle, after having blocked the inside of the handle to prevent epoxy from flowing into the length of the handle. I had made a mold shaped to match the grip/handle of the racquet out of the paper from a milk carton. I actually poured in enough epoxy to extend the handle by one inch, but then cut off half an inch. It's amazing how it turned out and how differently the racquet feels/plays

Wow. Those are my dream specs (except for the grip size) in a racquet, especially in that PJ. H22? Where'd you scoop these up?
a guy in FB sold them to me and I had them verified. Seller couldn’t have been a nicer guy and they showed up in nicer condition then described. Huge win haha

I’m going to hit them Wednesday. If they don’t work from me I’ll shoot you a message. I am really liking the extreme tour too
That'd be awesome! Has Fritz ever gone with Wilson? I've seen some of his junior footage at Eddie Herr and related tournaments and only ever saw him using Head.

Just like every other manufacturer creating test rackets to switch the players to own brand. Sometimes it works (Rublev, Collins), sometimes it does not (Fritz, and many others...)
then you always got dirt bags like me lurking to scoop up the scraps

Yep. By the way, Collins has been using that Babolat pretty openly for a while now (not even blacked out like at Hawaii in Jan). No Babolat stencil. If she is still under Head contract, I hope she pays hefty fines. Not a fan of her anyway. At least Rublev blacked out his Gravity (and that too for over a year) under his Wilson contract.
