    I've got only one racket right now and I might need a backup one just in case I break my strings in inopportune moments.

    My racket's also a little old and heavy (Slazenger Xcel S3).

    I've not bought a back-up til now cause I was afraid that I might try out another racquet and it's like fitting me perfectly, and then I would have spent money on two of the old ones. I might buy a back-up soon though, because I really like my current Yang Yang racquet and it's not that expensive.

    My primary one (Prince Beast Ti) sustained a crack (did not break yet) after clashing with another player's racket so I'm using the backup (Prince Sierra) for some time before I finally bought a replacement (Yonex NS9000X). =p

    Bought an additional because I bought the 1st one at the 11th hour when I'm supposed to go for a badminton game (that's about a year ago) a discontinued Prince racket.

    Went on to get a Wilson racket as a back-up as I later reseached online that the Prince racket breaks quite easily. Soon enough... 6 mths later, the Prince racket's shaft gave way...

    Then got another Wilson racket as a stand-by, liked the feel, weight and colour so bought it.

    After a couple of months, the 1st Wilson racket has some rattling sound in the shaft... rust perhaps? Time to get a proper racket. While accompanying my friend to the sports shop, a Yonex racket caught my eye and really liked the feel... so got it after a 1-hr mind fix.

    Just came back from Malaysia and got a Gosen racket, seemed good, reasonable, liked the feel and wanted to try it...

    There you go... with 1 and half years, I've gotten 5 rackets. Does that say a lot about women? **ROFL**

    I did have a pair of AT500s but I broke one recently after I slammed it onto the floor when playing a shot (not in anger - I dunno why I did that actually lol). I really regret it now though. However, you can't live life with regrets so I am looking to to purchase another racquet.

    However, I cannot decide whether to buy another AT500 (my current one is old colours), or to experiement and try other racquets. I know the racquet does not make the player, but I do want to try other things. It's like buying a new car - its so nice at first, but the drive gets boring after a few years.
