    haha unfortunately i only have one racquet

    but since i only play high school badminton....


    i own a yonex nanospeed 7000 and before that i had a yonex iso 067ch which i sold immediately once i got my new racquet

    im thinking of getting a second racquet this summer though (offensive). the nanospeed is great and all but i actually think that my iso had a stronger smash although w/ the nanospeed it's easier to get that steep angle you want during that smash..:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Haha! :) speaking of which, I too have one of those now framed and decorating the pool room. I remember back in the high school days of owning one with a wooden shaft where you had a trapezoid vise mount with thumb screws on all four corners to lock it down tight. Those guts back in the days would become so dry that you need to spray water on it.. yeah. those were the old days.. I love my new Arc10 now. Might pick up another one with a little less tension string on it as I find my clears are too far and risky . LOL:D

    wow people
    i think two racquets is both the minimum and maximum number racquets that one needs for use
    (primary, secondary)
    whenever i get a third racquet i always sell one of my other racquets because then that racquet would be sitting in dust

    I have 3 rackets, all Victor:

    - Super Waves 33 Power
    - Super ti-16
    - Prodigy 506

    I don't think there's a maximum for the amount of rackets you should have. How awesome would it be to have upwards of 30 rackets and to use a different one for each rally of a game?

    30 would be cool to show off but does it really make a difference? :D:D:D

    I agree with trickflick, at least in principle. Fundamentally you are the player you are according to your style of play (part of your psyche, I suppose), so the only considerations you need to decide upon is which racquet has the best characteristics for you to use in Singles Play or doubles play. Ergo, 2 racquets are all you'll ever need.

    Having said that, unforseen circumstances (Broken strings, damage to racquet, etc) during a match would suggest backups are required so. . . 15 of each one would equate to 30, yeah? LOL

    I happen to have more than 30 racquets and I play with them every now and then, even restringing them. I used to have more than 30 but gave many away to young school kids and the HK Salvation Army.
    My main racquets are racquets straight out of the mold; my secondary racquets are Yonex AT700 Old model, Amortec Superbrand, AT800 DE, MP99, MP100, Isometric Tour 800, and my own version of a vectran racquet.

    Yes! Think golf:
    "Hmm... for this rally i think I'll use the arcsaber 10..."

    You could even get a caddie to recommend the racket you should use! :p


    Uh... seriously though, having 30 rackets is probably not necessary, but I think it's ideal to have 5-6 rackets all with different weights, flex and string tensions depending on how you're playing on a particular day or in a particular game. We've all had those times when some rackets just aren't working out for you.
