Hey does anyone have pics of Head Mg Rad Pro? I got tired of looking for them
this is a nice racquet, tho im lookin to get rid of it, have too many racquets
Thank you! It's indeed a gorgeous racket
1 of each of my mids
oh yea, and these as well
1 each of my midplus frames
^ sweet pics and even better frames!
My latest additions...
It seems like a lot of people do not have APD/APDC collections of any sort, lol.
Anyone have any ideas as to why??:neutral:
not our cup of tea
A-Naik.1 you need 1 more kps88 to match my total...and wed both have the same amount of frames! ... kps88s, k90s, and n90s haha
I guess, I personally adore the racquets :shock:
Guess thats just me .....
I stand in amazement
haha its almost like you two are related
I watched my old entry and something with my rackets changed:
2x Yonex RDX 500
1x Head LM Prestige MP (broken frame)
2x Head FXP Prestige MP
5x Head ProTour 630 (the one with no string is broken too)
1x Völkl Tour 9 V-engine
1 Head FXP radical tour
1x Dunlop 200g muscle wave
2x Babolat aero storm (my rackets at the moment)
I don't understand that. You have the exact opposites. One of them is one of the most powerful rackets there is, and the other is one of the least powerful. I understand if all of your frames are 95 and below or all 98 and above, but having rackets that play totally different is a stupid move, IMHO.
^ those look sweet...how big is the head size?
Red Stars are 98 sq. inches. It's a bit much for me... I prefer 95 or less but I need a bit more room nowadays when playing better players on clay... I thought about buying Kneissl White Stars but they're heavier +15g and have the same balance... so tweaking them would be a bit more difficult... I mean if I added enough weight so they were quite HL balanced they would bump up being too heavy and the sw on the White Stars is quite a bit high for my liking.
Mario and kal-el 34 nice racket but how can you afford them??? you must be really hard workers or have excellent paid jobs. i wish i could find a job but i'm only 13(14 in june) so that limits me to crapy jobs like paper runs and that crap.
sponsorship has its perks
your so lucky.
Not lucky but skilled since he has a sponsorship
lol...im only 22 but ive saved money from work yes. i go to school still and work part time...thats how i guess i can afford tennis gear
yeah he's skilled but i havent yet played a tourny so........mario 22 and still in school how come??? are you in the usa??
yeah chicago area...working on masters
OMG , do you own a tennis shop or something ? you must be their best customer ? did you change the butt-cap on one of your k90 .
A little closer look at what I have....i wish i had a better layout so you guys can see...
are they white bumper guards?
its white babolat head tape to protect the bumpers
You take care of your racquets although you've got so many... RESPECT!
I don't have as many frames but am a bit cautious with them. I'm a bit of an extremist when it comes to extra protection. I use 2 layers of head tape... one which goes around the entire frame (from about 7 o'clock to 5 o'clock) and one extra layer for the bumper guard. I know it's crazy but it's carefully thought through. A layer of head tape to cover the bumper guard weighs 3g and a layer to cover the entire head weighs 8g. This is the best way to add additional weight to the head proportionally. You can't place lead as regularly... that is you can but it would be much more than those 11g. In my experience such way of adding weight makes the sweetspot feel more proportional.
Yeah i try to take care of them...the way you put your tape seems logical and smart....well thought of man! post of a pic of one if u can, id love to see
Will do I'll try to do it tomorrow, it's a bit late here (11 pm) and I have work to do in the lab straight in the morning for my masters piece (Phytoextraction of heavy metals with the use of energy plants.) so I have to get some sleep.
P.S.: I prepare my friends earlier keeping in my mind that the head tape ads weight... so "bare" frames are more HL than I like but after adding the head tape their just right
Finally got the whole collection: Yonex RD Ti70 Series
- 2x Mid (88 ), MP (98 ), OS
