My Tennis Racquet Collection: Histories and Stories

By admin, August 26, 2009 12:47

近幾個月打少了好多球﹐因為天氣太不穩定及實在太熱了﹐而且Wii的Grand Slam Tennis也太好玩了﹐所以多左在室內對住個LCD電視打網球。遲D再找那些失散了幾個月的網友打波先。

The following is my My Tennis Racquet Collection, let me begin the thread…please share and post your collection. I still like those old-school racquets so much, owning one of these classic rackets is one thing, but true appreciation the meaning and history behind these classic rackets is another!

From left to right (app. manufacture date):

1. Babolat Pure Drive GT (2009) – SOLD
Got it from a net friend, mainly because I want to switch racquet after 20 years.

2. Wilson Prostaff 85 (1984), Taiwan version

3. Rossignol F200 Mat Wilander (1985), Made in France

4. Puma Boris Becker Super with PCS (1984), Made in Taiwan

5. Dunlop Max 200G Pro (1991), Made in England

6. Dunlop Max 200G 1st version (1983), Made in England
Got this hidden treasure last week from MK 龍騰, it’s definitely a great bargain considering the history of this 1st version. I hitted it yesterday finally. Wow! Just As advertised (Manufactured with the unique grafil injection molding system providing you with that solid feel on your every shot.), the mold injection works, absolutely ZERO vibration and feel great at the net.

7. Prince Super Graphite, 28 inches (1995) – SOLD
I got this mainly because I like Prince Boron so much and it looks like Boron but much lighter, so it’s also quite unstable when returning heavy ralley.

8. Prince Original Graphite Oversize 4 strips (1991), Grip 3, Oversize printed on top
This is the one I got in 1991 after changing from single back hand to double back hand, and it’s also the first POG I’ve got, I’ve been using it mainly over the last 20 years.

9. Head Prestige Classic 600(1985), Made in CZ on throat

10. Head Prestige Classic 600 (1988), Design in CZ

11. Head Prestige Classic 600 (1992), Design in CZ, TW version

Bring back the days of Vilas and Nastase, it’s been used as a living room decoration since 2009

黑炭纖頂的Kyosho Ferrari Enzo

By admin, August 26, 2009 12:35

今天收到的,那黑炭纖頂的ENZO在香港找到的(HK$450),桔紅色的則是從美國寄來的,顏色太漂亮了,我就是因為買不到那架1/18的BBR ENZO F1版才買這個解渴的。 

黑是捷豹XK想收好久了,對新的XKR不敢興趣,還是舊的樣子比較有英國紳士風范。 

最后那1/43的IXO F40 LM 特別版還是從一位香港朋友那割愛讓了給我,大約HK$50左右。

廠版M. Benz CLK DTM AMG

By admin, August 21, 2009 19:13

全是今天收的,UT的法拉利F355很便宜,HK$250,另一MAISTO F50 才HK$150。

這F50鴨子的拉花可難找了,我之所以買,是因為當年讀中學的時候有過那經典的M. Duck 彈簧袋子,這是情誼結啊。

我不管三七二十一,有沒有水貼,就把這兩台法拉利全扔進桶里洗了個干干淨淨的澡。

其實一直想收CLK DTM AMG,但一直下不了手,直到昨天晚上看到有人放廠版才HK$500,就毫不猶疑的買下了,說真的這廠版的油漆的确比京商的普通版好一點點。

Wii EA Grand Slam Tennis

By admin, August 20, 2009 10:44

1It is the EA Grand Slam Tennis that made me to purchase Wii finally, Wii is my 1st video game console after almost 20 years as I quitted video game previously due to playing too much when I was young. 

The real and virtual were extremely well assembled on Grand Slam Tennis on Wii, you could be anyone you want especially those big names from the 80s! Like Pete Sampras, Stefan Edberg, Boris Becker, etc and the new ones like Federer and Nadal.

What’s best, you can even create your own character to compete with the pros.

With the help from newly released Wii weapon MotionPlus, you can fine tune your action to simulate the amazing serve and volley playing style again which is rarely seen on modern tennis game nowadays.

PS. You can watch some very exciting games on Youtube.

Daimler DS420前英國皇室和其殖民地總督的指定車

By admin, August 18, 2009 16:32

今天收到的。

我太喜歡這架(Daimler DS420 Limousine)前英國皇室和其殖民地總督的指定車了。

原來世上更有牛人專門做了個网站就講它:www.myds420.info

一塵不染

By admin, August 15, 2009 18:32

徹底地從頭到尾、里里外外的把兩架車洗了個澡,現在一塵不染,舒服多了!留意我還用耳掏把車頭燈都清洁得干干淨淨的,有創意吧!拆開后才完全感受到MAISTO的部件比UT多得多,而且也精細不少。

我對UT/MAISTO/BURAGO的車都是這么徹底洗的,他們天生不嬌气,油漆又夠厚,所以一點問題也沒有。之后就再打一層蜡后就顯得特別漂亮!
