    Well, skill is more important than the weapon it self. Give a kitchen knife to a well trained soldier & he will be able to kill alot of people. Give a mere farmer a gun & he might be able to kill few & with some luck he didnt shot himself.

    Then again, i saw some on this thread that some people asking for his new high end racket doesnt perform well.

    So what is your reason when you eventually choose a high end racket for the 1st time?

    How about a sixth option to the poll?

    My life is devoid of meaning; my soul is an empty shell.
    I attempt to fill the void with material things — which I choose by uncritically believing corporate buzzwords and social media hype.
    When the material thing does not make me stronger, more popular, nor happier, I could re-evaluate my priorities. But, instead, I assume that a newer, even-shinier material thing will finally cure my existential pain.​

    (That is a bit too true for comfort :(;))

    7. It's pragmatic for me. High end rackets have a better availability over a long time. For serious players who maintain the same racket over the longest possible time need security. Even now you can find used or even new highend model which came out 10 years ago. The low end rackets are not as easy available. After 2-3 years you can get trouble because they never were popular and produced over long time. BTW I'm somebody who run a specific racket until I can maintain to buy a 2nd or a 3rd. I just look for a new model, when I'm unhappy. If they can make the old JS10 with 1g more headweight and no sinking issues I would marry.

    Everybody's looking for that something
    One thing that makes it all complete
    You find it in the strangest places
    Places you never knew it could be

    Some find it in the face of their children
    Some find it in their lover's eyes
    Who can deny the joy it brings
    When you found that special thing
    You're flying without wings
