    I prefer another option. I have outgrown my racquet and I need to find a better one that will suit my skills.:D

    Dude, buying new racqets to scratch your butt is pure financial extravagance! I only have an old Kennex 727 with broken strings for that particular function. Does anyone else have any use for old broken racquets?

    A little big of everything.

    I wanna try new things and at the same time I wanna improve, add it to my racquet collection and look good, and not to mention the type of pressure I'm under being a part of a forum :) haha

    Bit of everything except racket is broke. I like to try new rackets and am looking for a racket that will make me superman.

    Anybody knows a racket where I can sit in the court with my eyes close and still beat Chen Hong in singles 15-0, 15-0 LOL?

    Maybe if I hire 4 hit persons, one for each limb, I might actually stand a chance against Chen Hong. He can probably attach a racket to his head, hop around on crutches with 4 broken limbs and still beat me 15-0, 15-0. Oh well, cheaters don't always win.

    A good chance to get a good racquet for a good price...why not? (eventhough I already have 2 of the same kind).
