Thread: Whats ur main rackets
01-27-2004, 05:19 PM #103
Ayl & Gluejeff.... sorry bluejeff hehehee!
No, my rackets are not out of shape; in fact they look more like the unstrung shape most. I wouldn't let anyone do the stringing except a registered qualified stringer which mine is. I'm sorry but anyone can buy a stringing machine and start stringing and I'm sure there are good ones but I've seen alot of out of shape frames, almost round and that can't be good.
And bluey, I wouldn't know what to do with a tennis racket as not only I don't own one I also think it's a game for thumpers who do not have to use their grey matter much, especially these days. hahaha.

I used to have a Yonex MP55(a good, balance, powerful racquet). But now I want to switch to Yonex Cabonex 23 or 22. But I don't know where to get Carbonex 22 in Vancouver.

An Update after the demise of my CAB20 MS...
1st Racquet: Carlton AS-Ti (Carlton factory string/ tension about 23lbs)... strictly for plastic.
2nd Racquet: Pointfore 5500 T3 (3U?/G5) (BG80@23X25lbs)... strictly for feather.
Will be getting CAB22 (2U/G5) (BG80@23X25lbs) from BBEshop soon. Will relegate the Pointfore to backup for feathers afterward.
Victor Discovery Pro will be backup for plastic.

Update: Yonex Ti-10, 2U G4 strung with Bg65-Ti at 22x24 Lbs
Thinking of switching to BG-66 or Bg85 but can't find in black in canada (montreal)

Nothing special here, I just use my:
Cab20ms 2U-G3 BG65 @ 27lbs
Cab20Long 2U-G4 BG65 @ 25lbs
Being that I didn't have my stringing machine shipped to Toronto, I'm going to be in a bit of a fix when I break the strings. LOL
Hmm... maybe I can buy extra cab20ms, and just string all of them, and bring them back to Toronto?
I could just not use as much force when I hit the shuttle
but that's not fun

i am a former carbonex fan. carbonex20 tour special (2UG4) used to be my main racket. but was introduced to the AT series and liked it. i am now using an at500 (4UG4) and disposed 3 of my carbonex's. i'm planning to get another at500. soon!

Switching between Babolat Comet and Chrono (control vs power).
