    Say a person has 20 rackets (genuine ones)......AT250/AT700/AT500/Ns8k/Ns9k/Cab20/cab30/Arc7/Arc10 etc

    On average these rackets would sell around £60 (USD $120) each
    Hence £60 x 20 = £1200 (~USD $2400) :eek::eek:

    That is a lot of money to spend on rackets...!!! :D:D:D:D

    Hmmm... let me see... 14 rackets in France, 15 rackets in Montreal...
    Planning to buy some more :p
    Kind of a collector: Yonex, Wilson, Carlton, Black Knight, Prince, Babolat, Rossignol, Head, Artengo (Brand name of a sports store in France), clone, no name brand....
    BTW, I only buy cheap or entry level rackets. They are heavy duty, last quite a long time.... and it's the player that makes the difference, not the racket (except for the really cheap 10 dollars rackets with no integrated T-joints. But they are so much fun :D )
    The most expensive racket I bought was a Yonex AT250 for 50 euros. And the shaft broke after playing twice with it :eek:
    That's why I prefer cheap, solid and durable :)

    yeah, it seems these days i'm collecting racquets more than playing with them. i do intend to reduce the numbers though, selectively.

    Only 2 Arc Saber 10. I switch the rackets so that the rackets have enough rest before I torture them again.

    Thanks.
