Wilson Super Eighteen Pack!

Just snapped a couple of pics before I retire my trusty bag which has served well, despite breaking the plastic thingy on the backpack strap, the liner stitching pulling out, the shoulder strap stitching giving a little, and the zippers getting a bit dodgy. It served dutifully for 2 years, and I am glad to be putting it out of comission next month.

The K bag. I got the whole set of luggage when they first came out, just too lazy to switch my stuff over. When I switch to the K Ill just keep my n90s in this bag for storage.

so are u going to keep all those ncode... or are u going to sell some
I might sell some, might give some away to a friend of mine who plays them and uses my grip size, might keep some, will cross that bridge when I come to it. Plan on blowing through all the string in them first.

Yes, and the K Factors are getting done as we speak. Should have 24 identical k90s by the end of 08.

Dude, you have no idea how far off spec my Ncodes were. Weight differences are 15 grams between the lightest and heaviest. Length ranges from 685mm to 688mm, and the balance point varies over 15mm.

Fortunately I lead the snot out of them. But it would be a nightmare if I wanted to play the stock spec.

So that's where all the ncodes went!!! You must have to take vacation days when it's time to restring :) Nice set of sticks...puts my 2 Babolats to shame....

That is awesome! Honestly if someone walked on the court and opened up their bag to that, I would have already lost due to intimidation.

I would think he was already tired from carrying that load! :)

J011y - do you look like a Sherpa preparing for the ascent with that bag-o-rackets on your back?!?

There's no way you can be married. My GF would kill me if I had that many rackets....

You might be on to something there...I could fill up my Babolat 12 pack if I didn't have a GF! But then, she is helping me get through med school and I won't be on the Tour anytime soon....women can't live with 'em can't live without 'em....:-|

My 2008 stringing budget allows for $5,000-$7,500.

J
i was expecting something like 300 or 400, i was a bit off :)

i also thought to myself, you need to get a stringing machine!!, but then realised if you tried to string all thoes racquets yourself, it would take too much of your time,
i think in one post you mentioned you when through 6 racquets in one day, that would be a 4+ hours job for me,
when you go through racquets this quick i guess it does pay to have someone else do it for you with one of their industrial size stringing machines :)

Yea, plus I get them strung cheeply. So if you took what I pay for a stringjob minus what the string costs. My time isn't worth that. I am better off giving an hour lesson than stringing 2 of my racquets.

Sadly I've noticed the same problem, but with a few less racquets.:mrgreen:

I thought I was bad carrying around as many as 5 racquets along with my other gear, but you exceed what most pros carry to the court. It is a good workout though.

Hey, somebody has to be wierd. I do an admirable job of it.

I am undefeated in the 2.5 pool on round-robin night, so on a winning streak like that I don't want to go changing things.
