Default How many rackets do you own?

Just curious.

I finally bought a second of my current favorite. Sold the other ones to pay for it.

And...do you have them strung differently?

2....I never understand these club players that go around with 6 or 7

Mine are strung at the same tension. It's just in case I break a string, I only do it every month or so and never broken 2 in the same match, so 2 is enough for me

I have 3 in my bag, but they're different.

I usually play with the K Factor KSix-One Tour 90, but I have my old Ncode Six-One Tour in case I break a string or something. I also have an old Wilson racket, in case something disastrous happens or someone needs to lend a racket etc.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Default Re: How many rackets do you own?

2 of my current racquet, and 2 of my previous version. I keep two strung at the exact same tension, and keep the older ones a little less tension. Play with the Head Prestige line.
Always have some tension variation in the main two due to usage. Always have a favorite I end up playing with the most.

Good call.

I have 6 or 7 altogether, but only take 2 to matches the rest are gathering dust. I hardly ever break strings so it's not a problem really. I know some people who break them all the time though and they don't hit with more power than me. Must be in the tension or the string type they use, I guess.

Do you like the MGP, is it mid or mid plus. I am still playing with the Flexpoint Mids and love them so much I hate to change. I have read reviews that stated that the MGs were a lot more flexible, and I just like the stiffness of the FPs.
Stringing them with Luxilon LTS and they are probably the best feeling racquet I've ever tried.

I have only tow, a wilson n-code n-six one 95 and a slazenger henman model 2004.
I am satisfied with both and never needed to play witha third one. (never had this bad luck).

I love it, I play with mid plus(98). Great for baseline rallies, and even the voley feels decent.
If you love stiffness, you can try the 93 one - it's a little heavier.

Good, thanks, I'll give it a demo. I just love that Flexpoint so much, I've been putting off the upgrade this time.. Thx..

Default Re: How many rackets do you own?

is it better to have multiple racquets of the same kind (like 3 babolat aerostrom) or multiple racquets for different kinds but similar techs.
