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

I'm thinking of getting the WILSON ntour 95. Has anybody had any experienced with this one that they could share to me before I buy it? Is the 95" head too small for a beginner? I really don't like those Over Size ones (110 and up) with a thicker beam. Thanks!

GO!!!

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

I'm currently using the N6 Wilson, i like it but i don't like the shpae of the head, for some reason it puts me off a little, i was using Serena's Hyper Hammer, she used in 2004, loved it, but i smashed it in fit of rage. Before that i was going through a Dunlop stage with 4 Dunlop racquets, including James Blake's old model and Amelié Mauresmo's before she switched (not the aero gel the one before she was using for ages). I have also used Slazenger, Fischer etc, my favourite has to be Wilson.

Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

I would have to say that i would avoid the 95 inch head and look for something in and around 100 - 105, that would be better for me, but it's your decision.

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

the most popular in our academy is WILSON. So many people are playing Wilson rackets. For example, Tommy Peric he is 400 ATP. He is using racket of Federer. Everybody started to play with new models.

Other racket, which I'm using and some other people, is babolat (official racket of Andy Roddick). I like this racket pretty much. Its 315grams and I use strings Pro Hurricane. I'm the one who play that racket. Other players prefer 300 grams Babolat.( new model).

I can tell u difference: Wilson racket has much control and babolat - more powerful racket with a little control. Its more easy to serve with this racket.

Other racket is Head. Now in academy some players play Head prestige flexpoint. And some people started to try new racket of Head (Ljubicic and other players are using this racket).

All players have the style for rackets. For example, if you are a baseliner player. I think Tecnifiber,Head, babolat, Prince (aero) is really good rackets for baseline. If you are a player who use more power. Its good to use babolat, yonex,head and some models of Wilson. If u are more control player, you prefer playing on baseline, do passing shots and sometimes go to the net. Wilson, prince and maybe Yonex.

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

I use the Ntour Two 95 strung with Babolat Pro Hurricane and XCel Premium at 55 pounds. I hit with a lot of power, so this racquet provides me with the control that I need. I swtiched from the N4 because I felt that it was a little too powerful. My serve is awesome now; I can hit with power or with spin and get a good serve in. My groundstrokes have a lot more control, although right now I'm not playing that great lol! But my forehand and backhand are okay at the moment. If I was hitting the ball better I could give a better review. I don't get to play that often, so it's really hit and miss. But overall, it's a good stick. The spin is terrific; topspin and slice shots have plenty of bite. I would recommend this one to a power player looking for control and spin.

I used that racket in practice. I hate that grip. Is so flay and not round.

I use this racket


I hate prince, but they are alright now. But they'll never take the place of my wilson rackets. Wilson has the best tennis rackets out there.

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

I use the Babolat Pure Drive that Kim Clijsters and Andy Roddick use. Its a great racket for power players and for players who are looking to get more power. Definitly less control than other rackets though.
