    Because my racquet was getting old and pretty weak compared to everything else now (I have/had an Iso30VF). Also, I made the mistake of coming here and seeing all the positives of the new racquets and the good performances of non-Yonex racquets. I then bought a SOTX Woven 8 and it's suppose to arrive in the next days.

    Default Hope that my new racquet will help me play better

    Greetings,

    One of the most common reasons that I hear from players needing a new racquet is "I hope and pray that my new racquet will help me play better"

    Shouldn't that be added/included in the Poll Options?

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    Commonly break a main or spare and therefore buy another, new racquet turns into a main and others become a spare.
