I started tennis with a Wilson Hammer 5.3, the OS version of the racquet my 5.0 NTRP brother uses. I am an athlete and play obsessively and am now at a low 4.5 NTRP. My racquet collection grew out of control. 30 racquets and a lot of, what is now, a lot of wasted money. My favorite players frames where the Prince "03 and EXO3 tours". After tennis season I was inspired by the Volkl DNX 10 w, so I exteded it when my friend lent it to me. This racquet owned anything I had played with. I proceeded to experiment with Wilson Pro Staff 85 and other historical racquets. A local tennis stringer recommended that I try the Prince CTS Lightning. I got two on the Bay and they were the smoothest racquets I had ever played with, until two weeks ago when I spotted a miss listed POG 1 stripe. I got it for $9 and $8 shipping. When I got the racquet the grip was to short so I extended it with some light weight fiberglass and sand paper ect.... I proceeded to put my recently acquired POG in my tennis bag along with my two prince CTS lightnings and hit with it for my first time last week in a friendly match, I have not put it down since then, except when my strings broke. Now I have a house full of racquets that will probably never see the light of day and a taste for an old racquet that will never cost less than $70 a pop...:cry: Well, at least my tennis game has never been better.
