My squash bag is an old – four compartment – Kean racket back. Yesterday I noticed it’s in desperate need of replacement; the 2 handles of my squash rackets sticked out at a place where they were not supposed to. :P

Anyway, the bag has three big compartments and one smaller side-compartment.

Compartment 1:
————-
* Asics Gel Blast 3 shoes (old and need replacement)
* Puma T-Shirt
* Puma Shorts
* Extra shirt that I wear under my T-shirt (not shown)
* Pair of socks (not shown)
* 1 or 2 Nike wristbands (http://img.tennis-warehouse.com/new_product/NSDWBW-1.jpg) (not shown)
* Underpants :)

Compartment 2:
————-
* 2 or 3 Wilson BLX Tour (factory string, to be replaced with Karakal Nano 125 string)
* 2 or 3 double-dot Dunlop squash balls

Compartment 3:
————-
* Toiletry, containing the usual stuff like soap & deo
* Sweatpants
* Sweater
* Water Bottle (KOR Delta dark)
* Towel

Side Comparment:
—————
* Spare Karakal PU replacement grip (yellow)
* Sport tape
* Insulation tape (used grip replacement)
* Contact lens “survival kit” (extra lenses, fluid, extra glass whipes)
* Hard case

I hear he’s got 17 rackets in there, which would seem to violate several laws of physics.

Update: this video reveals what’s really in his bag.

    Pierre, is that the same GTX-130 you cracked in February when we were talking about new strings? It seems like you settled on Powernick 18s?

      Hi D, back in Feb I think I cracked the one with Tecnifibre 305 1.1 green strings. For this second racket (now also cracked), I tried the Tecnifibre X-One Biphase 1.18 Red. They felt more comfortable than the factory strings but I didn’t like them as much as the green strings. There just wasn’t quite as much pop off the string bed.
