its much better to have all the same rackets, so you have continuity. some people like to have 2 slightly different rackets, but i usually advise against this

It is definetly better to have at least 3 racquets for club level players and all the same string tension and racquet. So if u break a string then u have all the same racquets it puts u at a disadvantage to have a favorite racquet if u pop a string then u r at a mental disadvantage

I have two Babolat Aeropro Drives with the same strings, same tension and same overgrips. I try to use both equally to have the exact same feeling and I also re-string them at the same time.

Default Re: How many rackets do you own?

I have had 11 racquets over the years. I sold two, 1 started to crack, and another I lost when I left it on the car roof and drove off - I was not happy that day :-(

Now I have 4 of the same prince MP and they are all strung identically.

lol. yeah. ok.

i own about seven racquets i believe, some older liquid metal, some older wilson's. and i currently am playing with the babolat pure drive series, i'm looking to switch because they're WAY to stiff for me, they're at like 60-61, so i'm looking for something more like 55.

so if anyone is interested in buying them pm me, two of them for around 250 includes shipping.

First off you have 32 posts, don't talk smack if you are new.

Secondly, I am a junior. Prince is my sponsor along with asics for clothes.

Last, they send me rackets I don't get paid because I am 13 (Junior) hoping to go pro.

Default Re: How many rackets do you own?

I currently own three but only two of them are playable.

1. A Prince Air O Smash (recreational racquet $40), which was my first racquet. I broke the strings and lost some of the grommets so I can't use it anymore.

2. A Prince O3 Hybrid Spectrum (tweener racquet $90), about 9.0 oz and it improved my game and helped my develop my form although I still had some over hitting and control problems. Strung with cheap Prince Synthetic Gut w/ Duraflex.

3. A Prince Original Graphite (player's racquet $120, got it used for $50 and in almost perfect condition), 12.2 oz, just recently got it and am still getting used to it. It has amazing control. It is a "player's racquet" and i'm not even close to intermediate but I can still handle this racquet. Due to the weight double backhands are effortless. Still trying to develop a solid and consistent forehand swing. Volleys are excellent too. Strung with cheap Prince Synthetic Gut w/ Duraflex although i'll put better strings on it later.

3/4 was always enough when i played alot as a junior.....
now that i'm back, 2 will do the job...just need to get 2 new ones!!

i remember a couple of times playing some unreal tennis and breaking a couple of sets of strings and not having a replacement and the match woulf fall apart then cause i'd have to get a lend of another type of racquets
