    Fine let's list everything :D

    Game: Singles
    Style: Defensive/Fysical, I only smash when I have 90% chance of scoring (I have an absolute Pussy smash :D)
    Racket: NS 5000
    String: BG65@22lbs
    Shoes: Some Asics...(BLUE:cool:)
    Grip: Frottee Victor (red/white)

    For my doubles (Which I only play in competition, because the captain makes me) I own an AT800D with stringing tension BG65 22LBS

    @Jerby: I list my shoes, because you people all show more interest in my shoes than people who have already smelled them.:D:p

    Hah.. yet another update from me.

    Game : MS and MD.
    Style : Offensive - attacking clears, drives, smashing(jump), Backhand crosscourt smash ( this helps me alot ), tighter netplay, lots of crosscourt netdrops ( nearly every net shot is a crosscourt now. ), and I'm focussing on my footwork now.
    Racket : AT700 (new)
    String : 26x28lbs, BG65Power.
    Shoes : Mizuno Sala Libre ( need to change, because this shoe has lost its traction and its got no cushioning. Gets irritating. ) Now looking towards buying the SHB100LTD 08'.

    Armortec 700, BG66, tension 27 - 29. In singles, I play it patient, set up and control, I smash when given the opportunity to give the full kill. Doubles, set up for my partner, and kill everything when given chances.
