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

I have a Prince Synergy with an oversuze head the head is 110 sq. I really don't like prince but my coach gave it to me. I really like Wilson. But what Wilson power rackets work best. I heard Serena's Gypsy rose was good, but its 300 freakin dollars.

What racket do you guys use is it a power racket etc.?

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

I use Wilson nBlade 98' with Babolat VS Team natural gut strings for the crosses and Babolat Hurricane for the mains - strung at 60lbs. It's a great blend of power and control. I love it. But if you're looking for solely power, the Wilson n5 (98' or 110') is a great buy.

Im not the next anyone. Im the first Maria Sharapova...

I recently switched from Babolat Pure Drive Roddick to Babaolat Pure Storm.

Wanted more control on my shots.

Okay my my friend has a 120in head and hits big balls but said the racket lacks control etc. My racket is strung a 63lbs. Are big heads a good thing? I have a big head on my racket but not as big.

I'm using a Wilson nCode nSix-Two atm. I love it, alot more control than my last racket.

I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

Well bigger head size means more power. Smaller means more control. If you can generate your own pace, i would suggest getting a racket with a smaller head size so you can control your shots.

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

I always use Wilson rackets, I have a few different kinds of Wilson Racket, I've got the Wilson racket, the kind of Venus used at Wimbly 2005, same colour also Ncode. I've got the same kind of hammer racket Serena used during Wimbledon 2002 until YEC 2004. I've got the hammer racket of Henin and Davenport , that orange/black racket. And a few more.

Babolat are the best rackets.

I was told by many tennis coaches over hundreds

I use the Wilson nSix-One 95 (16x18), strung with natural gut for the mains, and polyester strings for the crosses. It's quite a control-orientated racquet.
