    Model / NickName (in Chinese :p ) / Why I like it
    1. MP99, "little yellow", it's an all around racquet
    2. Cab30MS, "little black", it's similar to MP99, but have different feels.
    3. ISO-TIS, "little orange", it's easy to use and easy to play with
    4. Cab20P & 22, "little blue", it's durable and it has lots of power.
    5. MP100, "little red", it's good for smash and back court attacks.

    :)

    3. ISO Ti SS (the old reliable)

    1. MP100 / About to get, Love the smash and power and enough control, looks sharp too.
    2. Ti-10 / Played with it, Old version of MP100, some say it's better, it looks evil.
    3. AT500 / I have it, very all round racquet, very good for doubles.
    4. MP99 / Often steal it from a friend, Better version of AT500.
    5. At700 / Want it but too poor, more of a professional racquet, it's what I'm aiming for, when I get good enough to use it.

    I only had four... so I don't qualify here...

    1. Ti10 - supreme power
    2. Cab 13 - raw agression
    3. Cab 20 - balance....
    4. Pro Kennex - first. Very light.
    5. -nil-

    ps - ttktom, are you a Blue or a Red? Sorry, can't resist the temptation when seeing 'Merseyside' as location.

    1. AT800DE - would like to have..however, it's way too expensive.
    2. Ti 10 3U - my sister has it. It is the classic power/control racket. Better than the 2U for doubles.
    3. Ti 7 - used to have it. I did very fast drives with it. Control is awesome.
    4. Black Knight PC68 - my current racket. Sweetspot is very large. Power is excellent. Control is above average, but I still have to replace the factory strings
    5. Pointfore 5500 Ti - Demoed it at the Pointfore tourney. Well balanced racket. Actually won a tough match using it too..so I need to get one as soon as I can :p

    Mine:
    1) Cab21 - My most trustworthy racket. I always go back to it on my off days.
    2) AT800DE - Probably the best racket for those days I'm really on and into the game.
    3) MP99 - Good all around racket and flashy looking to boot! ^^
    4) TiSP SX - For those days I just wanna hit stuff.... downward.
    5) Ti-10 - Same as #4, but only when I'm not lazy enough to hold a heavy feeling racket... which is just about never.

    G'day,

    MP90 - best all rounder
    MP77 - most powerful
    Cab22 - most satisfying to use
    Cab20 - most forgiving
    Ti-10 - best wank factor ;)

    2. Cab22... Great control & power...
    3. Aerotus110... *as above*
    4. MP99... I think it's a nice colour *haha* good feel too...
    5. Cab20... comes close to Boron2, but not quite...
