Re: What Racket do you use? What rackets work best? The racket forum.

I prefer something with a thinner beam. So I use the Prince O3 Tour (100in). I love it because it's actually heavier than the Wilson NTour 95, so it's sturdier, but I can get a lot more racket head speed because of the holes in the frame. The holes actually enlarge the sweet spot as well. the open string pattern also gives me a lot of heavy topspin. The balance is nice for me because it's really easy to maneuver at the net. I don't get much pop on the serve, but I can kick it nicely.

I don't really like gigantic head sizes and thick power rackets. It doesn't suit my game well at all. 100 square inch is as big as I'm gonna use.

Re: What Racket do you use? What rackets work best? The racket forum.

I use a Prince Turbo Shark MidPlus strung at like 50lbs.

(Let the record show that while it's TOB's old racket, it's Lena D.'s current string tension).

It's got good pop without sacrificing too much control, and it's like serving with a cannon. My only complaints are that I had to overgrip the hell out of it to fit my hand and I'm having to take a little off my volleys. My backhands are either hit with a ton of slice or tons and tons and tons of slice, and this racket helps my slices go deeper and harder than my old Dunlap.

I playtested a number of Wilson and Head rackets as well as a couple newer Prince models, and this is the one for me. At least for now. I tend to play my rackets to death, so it may be awhile before I try one of the "O" models.
