    Actually, believe it or not, after trying and experimenting with all this equipment, I'm not very particular about my equipment anymore! :eek:

    As long as the equipment is reasonably "good", I have no problem using it, I can "adjust" to it. If I were to list my #6 - #10 rackets, they would all be the SOTX Woven 4A.

    I do have my preferences though, and my preferences are heavier, more stable, inexpensive, durable, rackets. Basically heavier bang-for-the-buck rackets. And that happens to be the Woven 7 and 4A. :)

    I am seeing a stringing machine in my future now if i am clever i can teach grandma to string since she enjoys quilting so much. better get her hand weights to get her with that grip strength. for those holding w7 and w4a good news there value has now gone up 15 percent.

    lol... image... your profile's image is a polar bear and it suppose to be PANDA...
    i want panda....:crying:
    ok, back to top, actually i was referring to the rackets that you nominated as your best rackets. all are the same. previously on N9kX, you did add which type of string and tension, so, i assumed that types of string will determine which is better for you...:)

    Sorry a bit of confusion on my part. I just listed my Top 5 rackets as what I have in my bag, what I use. I only have one 9000-X left. Sold the rest.

    So my bad.

    Best rackets are all relative, but overall for me, I'd have to say for overall balance, attack 50%, defense 50%, it's hard to beat the 9000-X. 9000-S if you want something a bit more forgiving.

    #2 - yonex Nanospeed 7000 24lbs ( forgot the sizes)
    #3 - Yonex Ti-5 ( old ) at 22lbs ( forgot the sizes )
    #4 - Dream - 22lbs ( Friend's racket that I borrowed while waiting for new rackets )
    #5 - BlackKnight Dynamo ???? The 1st racket that died in my hands.


    To be determined - Arc Saber 7 =]
