Re: new racquet - need advice ASAP
Second the above.
Play test before you buy. A racket you are not comfortable with can more than wipe out the cost savings in medical bills (tennis elbow or other complications if you throw your swing off), or if you end up ditching the racket. Both have happened to me--when I got back into tennis after a long layoff about 6 years ago, I got a racket that was way too stiff and hurt my arm. Got another that was way to head-heavy for my game and ditched it. Got smart and playtested and have used the same racket for years now.
You can still find rackets you can playtest on sale in my experience.
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
