my answer is still 4, but tempting to make it 5.

Back in the day, when I was serious, the number was 3. Or at least 3.
Today, when I'm only after serious fun, the number is 1 of each. But then i get 1 of many models since I've got many favourites.
Last month i got back into somewhat serious play (competing again after almost 10 years) I instantly ordered 2 extra arc 10. So the number is once again 3.

Obviously it's great if you can afford 5 or 6 of the same racket. Not all rackets are made the exact same (even if they're the same model), so within those you might find a few favorites.
On the other hand, it's harder to keep track of your string tensions (even if you string at the same tension, they'll drop depending on when they were strung).
For tournament play, I like to have at least three of the same racket. When you're in a tight match and your strings go, it's nice to not have to worry about adapting to a racket you haven't used in ages.
If I was paying $200 per racket though, I wouldn't get any more than 2. I just don't think it's worth my money to get more.

On the other hand, only travelling pros would really ever need that number of frames. Average players that break strings regularly generally have good access to a stringing service and probably won't practice as much as the pros and hence, won't need as many rackets.
Personally, I think my sweetspot is about 3 rackets - this seems to be quite common amongst the BCers here. I don't really need more than that but equally, I'd probably feel uncomfortable at big tournaments with any fewer than 3.

3 SW35's are the way to go 3UG3 same grip, tension everything

Actually, what I do with same rackets of a different tension is use stencil ink and mark the higher tension one, usually just with a circle in the middle or something else just as simple. I suppose I could just write the tension in stencil ink as well...

i like to collect the rackets and test them out...base on performance, looks, recommendation and my preference. so far i got 8 pcs and now narrow down to 5 (give away to relatives/friends)..
not to be offended..but i tend to colect things that techological-sound and happy-doing it..even watches for example.
at the end, i play only with 2 rackets vt80 & prince av-r which suit my play..and coming soon, victor mx80 i hope!

5 rackets of my favourite SiW35 is optimum. 2 will be stored away. 3 all strung in the same tension (28/30). As for the also ''liked'' racquets, 2 is the way to go. use one, collect/store one. Since I'm going the Yonex way, I've managed to offload all none Yonex frames to just 1 each except the mighty red SiW35!

From the picture, you still missing the 1st generation both Long and regular version. Furthermore, you also miss out the orange version (4th Gen Limited version). Good luck on sourcing for the 1st Gen. Especially on the regular length model.
