    Rackets in Your Bag

    I know there used to be a thread like this about two years ago. but considering the number of members and new rackets we have at present, I am curious again. How many and what brands of rackets do you bring to court during play days?

    I usually bring my 2 trusted AT OFF 800's, SOTX Woven 7, and my priceless SOTX Ltd. Ed Woven 12.

    3-4 cab30ms as always...

    Could be over crowded, if picking up numerous rackets from others, as to be strung. ;)

    4 NS8000 - I don´t think it´s a good idea to mix types of rackets as it makes it more difficult to get the feeling of the balance, grip, power etc.

    100% agree... Sometimes, even same rackets from different production batches might feel a bit different (e.g. 85g 3u vs. 89g 3u). :rolleyes:

    - No doubt about that, I tried to get my rackets with a G5 grip, but they are only available to the sponsored players... I had to settle with G4 which is almost as thin. If I had been forced to choose G3 there would have been a significant difference in the way the racket feels when you hit! Pay attention to the details when you choose eqipment, what´s perfect for lets say Lin Dan or Peter Gade might not be the thing to choose for you... :)

    Yea, i agree with u in that one, but personally i think its better to have 2 types of rackets with slightly different characteristic (head heavy and even balance, or head lite and even balance) so when u feel like u have an off day u can switch to a racket thats easier to use.

    I think it´s a very individual discussion...I can see what you mean, but then again it´s not something i´ve experienced...If i´m havin a bad day it´s because me and then not even the best racket in the world can save my miserable day ;) - Not because it should be any sort of evidence, but how many times do you see the pro players change type of racket in the middle of a game? even if they are losing I cannot recall any?...but then again...as I said, its individual :D I´m not to say whats right or wrong!

    My AT800's OFF are for playoing really hard games in men's doubles. My woven 12 is for mixed doubles as I feel I need a lighter racket because being the male, I will be hitting the shuttle more. My woven 7 is for warming up on my smashes from the base line.
