    Well, what used to be my go-to racket I had two near identical copies, the APACS Nano 900 power. Both had the exact same strings, same grip, same weight, same BP. Then I discovered the Trinity 2. And the PP10K.

    I'm planning on getting seconds of those once the money rolls around. But seriously, 8 copies? Wow. I just don't have the money for that at all. But if he does, the more power to him.

    Somehow agree, once we settle and feel good with a racket we should get more of those in case the racket is discontinue or broken. On the other hand, the opposite will argue that at least there are 3 reasons having more different rackets:
    1. We dont always want to play the same way everytime, so having different type of racket will accomodate the mood :)
    2. Most of players are corious if there is a better racket out there that can improve their game, Im sure even pros will try different rackets every now and then
    3. Others would like to just collect them :D

    That was what I was thinking too, but when you think about it =/, you can buy 1 racket each month and it adds up if you have a job xD

    20 rackets, an avg of 100USD ea. = 2000USD
    20 rackets, an avg of 150USD ea. = 3000USD
    20 rackets, an avg of 200USD ea. = 4000USD

    forget 500+, start thinking 2000+

    come to think of it, my most expensive racket I've ever paid for was my Trinity 2, 125USD.

    I go for budget rackets because I'm not good enough to truly use an expensive racket.

    Apacs Nano 900 Power (2 white, 1 red)

    RSL Diamond X1
    Yonex MP99
    Blacknight Carbon Tech
