i love:

nike clothes- their skirts are really comfortable, easy to move in, and flattering
new balance shoes- lots of support
babolat raquets- really durable (i'm a raquet smasher...)
penn balls- they seem to never get flat. i'll find a faded old penn ball in my bag, and it still has as much bounce as the first time i used it.

I actually just got one about 2-3 months ago. I'm in love. I got the n6 which is, in my opinion, the best out of the bunch. I think that I need to loosen my string tension though b/c I need some more power. I heard that the ntour sucks in comparison to the rest though.

btw- Welcome to the boards!

not really the ntour is a pretty decent racket. i would say it could compare with the pro surge but except a little less power. some ppl say they actually like my ntour better than my nsix-one 05. cuz my strings patterns are 18x20 so i have lots of control but not a lot of power. but im thinking of lowering the string tension on it. but i used the eagnas perfect spin they are so cheap so maybe thats why im not getting any power.

I just got my pair of Lotto Raptors today! They take maybe an hour to you know break in, then they are amazing, comfortable to a T. Lots of traction. Best shoes I have had so far.

I have always played with my Wilsons and think I'll stick with them. I have played with some Head racquets and I like them quite a bit but I dont know if I would actually get one. However I do play with the Prince strings.. the hybrid ones.. I think they have the best durability which, until I start making some money or some tennis company sponsors me (that can happen right? like in my next 5 reincarnations or something.. if i consistently stick with tennis allthrough) is quite important. and they dont play bad either.
Gear I dont really care- I always use running shoes only.. and dont care about any brand in particular.. I have been with New Balance lately but have used and liked Addidas and Nike just as much. I think I have nike wristbands haha that i have never used. and a nike hat that I wear basically constantly and will probably keep wearing until one day the hat will just be one piece of cloth and nothing else. whatever goes for clothing.

My fav brand of clothing in tennis has always been Nike but I've been increasingly disappointed with their ranges in the last few years. The clothes have become increasngly bland/plain. The best Nike stuff from years ago was stuff that was stylish but without being too loud, but the current items that the pros wear are neither. That top Fed wore at this year's AO was nice though, in a retro sort of way. Years ago, I always felt that Agassi chose the best stuff from the nike ranges.

Wilson NBlade 98 almost a year
Wilson Qualifier OC(omni-clay) for clay courts(shoes)
Wilson CF2 for Hardcourts(shoes)
Wilson Tennis wears (Japanese Versions Clothings)
Wilson Reaction (strings) love the feel, but it won't  last for an hour, so I'm usin' Babolat Superfine Play(cost less)

Tim Henman is the lone Slazenger holdout.

Wow! A lot of love for the off-brand racquets "uncertain." I can't figure out what either Blake (EDIT: lol  OMG!   :Blush:   ) or Ollie Rochus play with, but my hunch is they both play with Prince.
