    I'm just interested to see what rackets others have been switching with the advent of new technologies/brands etc.

    1) Slazenger metal racket, cheap beginners racket from local sports shop, weighed a ton, literally.
    2) Prince CTS Synergy DB 26, could never get used to the feel.
    3) Head Radical O/S Trisys 260, lovely racket, great for serves and groundstrokes.
    4) Yonex RDS003, had loads of power, nice feel but in the end didn't like the extended length for some reason.
    5) Yonex RDS001, great for spin but it can be hard going if your playing a long session as you have to produce the power.
    6a) Babolat APDC, best racket I ever had, spin & power, using the Nadal lead setup I found the balance to be perfect for me.
    6b) I've spilt 6 into a & b as I bought a Babolat Team Pure Drive as a backup racket, while it shares the same hoop as the APDC it favours a flatter hitter but it's still nice.

    I'll be sticking with the APDC as it feels like my 'holy grail' so to speak. Part of the reason I favour it is I switched to a smaller grip size which I find most comfortable. Using the old measuring system, technically I a size 4, with the RDS001 I tried a 3 but have now settled on a 2, much easier to change grip styles in play.

    Well that's me, please share your racket journey!!

    So, I've been playing for like, 15 years, and have only had four or five different frames...

    1. Cheap Prince junior frame. Still have it. It's purple and green, with green strings. The head is no longer quite round. Went through lots of use and abuse.

    2. Semi-cheap Wilson 26" frame. Was a black model, pretty sure it was from the era of the Hammers. Also think it had power holes, too.

    3. Prince Precision Response Titanium. First full-sized frame. Think it was a bit too heavy for me at the time, but I made it work. Still in my bag today as a second backup.

    4. Prince More Control DB 800. You know, the half black, half white frame that got so much praise when it first came out? Don't personally know anybody else who liked this stick. Got two of these, one got lost. Just recently bought a used one, so I've got two identical frames again. These are my current sticks, and I'm using them stock. Considering a little lead for extra stability though. They must suit my game and style well, cause I can place the ball right where I want with these. And can really rip a 2hbh with them.

    4.5. More Control DB 850. Expanding upon the loss of one of my 800's. At that point, the 800 was discontinued, but the 850 (OS version) was still out. Much to my dismay, the 800 was unwittingly replaced by an 850. I've still got the 850 in my bag as a 'just in case' backup frame. If for whatever reason, I manage to go through both 800's and the PRT, I've still got the 850. I really don't like using this frame. It's way too light and unstable, and the balance is all wrong. However, it's a spin machine. Also has a little extra length, so I can still get pretty good serves out of it. So I can deal with using it for a short period.

    Been using the 800's for 6-7 years now I think. Still like them fine, but sometimes I think I might prefer the PRT. I don't have any money to use upgrading my frames at the moment, so I'm stuck with these for a while still. Would like to be able to see what else is out there though.

    All sorts of wood, steel and aluminum racquets to settle on the Head Pro. Then a widebody. Then the Dunlop Tour Pro Revelation in the 1990s to the ProKennex Redondo. ProKennex had distribution problems several years ago so I went to the K90 which was a nice transition racquet from an eastern forehand to a semiwestern. Then to the Pure Drive Roddick to try my hand at a really modern racquet. Nice but a tad too stiff and I wanted something heavier. Settled on the KPS88 - preferably a bit lighter than spec. I hope to stick with this for the next ten years.

    Wilson Silverbird (98' even balance) - Okay racquet. A friend gave it to me as he bought new ones and he wanted to teach me so he would have somebody to hit with
    Head Flexpoint Radical OS - The first racquet I bought. At first I loved it and after I developed my strokes it felt wrong.
    Head Radical Agassi LTD - Because of the Flexpoint I started to dislike OS frames. Sold them on.
    Pro Kennex Redondo Mid+ - Fell in love with it. Improved my serve and volleys a lot with this racquet. Still carry it in my bag.
    Fischer M Speed Pro One - Recently purchased it since the specs were so close to the Redondo. Feels great. I keep switching between this and the Redondo.

    3. Pro Kennex Silver Ace - Freshman/Soph. HS I had this racket until college when it broke during a match.

    4. Pro Kennex Golden Ace - More of a novelty racquet, too soft typical of wood rackets. Sold it a friend

    5. Pro Kennex Boron Ace - Nice stiff frame. Still have until now, 25 yrs. But developed arm problems.

    6. Volkl DNX 4 - Tweener racquet. Recently purchased.

    Okay I need to make a correction so I don't sound like one of those guys whose rackets are just bought for him. Except for the first one and the 3rd and 4th. I have personally purchased all the rackets.

    When I said "rackets purchased for me" I meant rackets that either my parents or me personally purchased for myself and not a racket of my brothers that I used.

    I still use 7 and 8 regularly, depending on my mood. There are lots of others I'd love to try from various brands. Even though they're almost all Prince, I'm not a Princeophilie; it's just what's familiar. Eventually I'll get around to demoing other racquets. Right now I want to get my game back in gear and then I can justify testing out more racquets.

    7b. Head Flexpoint Radical mp
    8. Head i.Radical mp

    I first started off in 7th grade with a beginners prince racket (dont remember which one). Then in the summer following I was progressing and my uncle (and coach) had me demoing numerous rackets, I ended up choosing a Wilson nCode nPro Surge with the Babolat Pure Drive Team coming in second. At the time my uncle didnt think it was necessarry for me to have a back up racket yet so I just stuck with my nCode. But in time i started popping my strings more frequently so my uncle decided to buy me another nCode. Unfortunatey they were discontinued, so my uncle decided to get me a Pure Drive Team but they too were discontinued. Fortunately my uncle got a great deal on a Pure Drive Cortex +. In time I started to prefer the pdc+ over my ncode so my uncle bought me a pd standard because he also got a good deal on it. Threw out this period I was content with my pure drives but in the middle of my sophmore year i was getting a pain in my upper arm so i decided to go to the doctor to get it checked out. It turned out i was on the verge of getting bicept tendonitis, so it was time for a racket change. I tried many rackets and ended up liking the Babolat Pure Storm Tour. The tendonitis pain was gone but in time the weight of the pst was getting to me. I don't have much muscle in my arms and with my full western grip, the pst was taking its tole on my elbow so i had to change rackets again. My high school coach was nice enough to give me an i.radical that one of the seniors had left behind. I was in heaven, it was my favorite racket so far and i just loved it. I started looking for another i.rad for my backup but i couldnt find any reasonably priced, so i settled on a head flexpoint fire i got for 30 bucks. But one day i decided to go practice with some of my friends. One of my friends wanted to try it out so i lent it to him. We were playing out the point and he drilled a insanely flat forehand to me and the frame just snapped. I was shocked but i didnt charge him since i got it for free and it was obviously already cracked internally since it was so old and i only had it for about a week and a half. I still had my fxp fire, pd+, and pst so i thot everything would be fine. wrong. About halfway through my junior year i smashed my fxp fire and went bak to my pst and pd+ but they were still giving me arm problems. A friend gave me his capped lm radical mp since he had switched frames and had no use for it. Even though it was very beat up and partially cracked, i took it seeing as my arm couldnt really take the abuse my babolats were giving it and it gave me time to get some money to buy some new frames. Well it cracked when i was returning a serve about two weeks later so i was in dire need of a new armfriendly racket. I tried looking for i.radicals but found no luck so i demoed some rackets and got a microgel radical mid+. The microgel rad was the answer to all my prayers, it was spin friendly, light, and most of all, armfriendly. I found a fxp rad for a cheap price and bought it for my backup racket. Then about three weeks ago my radicals were stolen. I'm not gonna go into details about that. Fortunately i found my favorite racket of all time brand new and for a good price, a Head i.Radical mid+. It is my current racket and only racket at the time and i am looking for more. I might end up buying a Fischer M pro #1 light racket (it plays and feels very nice, but not as nice as my i.rad) and its currently only 80 bucks. Thats my journey
