    Now a days with so many diffrent makes and....models of badminton racquets. People seem to be amassing a collection of racquets, which one can never hope to use each & everyone of them. So are we evolving into a collector of objects in a sense of like a hobby?

    I don't know but just to look at my small racquet collection it make me feel happy. I'm sure other people in this forum feel the way I do and have a way bigger collection thna me.

    I tell you what, Badminton to me is like my liver to my body. Without it, I would die immediately. (Do not try to murder me by taking away my rackets!!!)

    Sure I can use all of them, I am on my rotations in between ISO Bunch and CAB Party series every 6 months :D:D Never felt happier than this.

    Also, don't you feel rackets are so beautiful? it's a type of art! :) :)
    (although we use it to hit shuttles and "other things" :p)

    2) Yonex Carbobex 8100 Light
    3) Yonex MP 55 SP

    Beside that i also love anything that is related to badminton, such my court shoes (only wear in the court). badminton bag and also a small bag for my victor shoes.

    I think collecting Rackets is more of a Hobby than Sports.. but it can be sports if you always get new rackets trying to look for a perfect racket for you.

    To me, it's like 50-50.

    I kept looking for my ultimate weapon(s), as well as collecting some ones in series if I have enough $$$. :D
