Can you recommend me a good Tennis Racket/Racquet?

I'm beginning to get into playing Tennis cause my friends have been dragging me to play but I have to keep borrowing my friends Racket/Racquet each time and I'd rather buy my own

I was wondering, if theirs any GOOD racket/racquet's that are really good and relatively easy on the wallet as well. I live in Canada and I'm looking for a good racket/racquet under $150 CDN if possible, that's about $130-ish USD.

Thanks in Advance!

Which is better? Wilson K-Fury or Wilson nPRO Open

What do you guys think about these two racquets? Like the Pros/Cons.

I'm pretty much a beginner player and I narrowed my racquet choices down to these two. Are these racquets any good or bad?

Which would would you prefer? They're both $60 USD

Wilson K-Fury:

Wilson nPRO Open:

Re: Which is better? Wilson K-Fury or Wilson nPRO Open

I use the Wilson nPro Open (have had it for a year). It's a nice beginning racquet, gets good topspin, and is a nice, balanced racquet. However, I'm looking for something to 'upgrade' to with a little more weight and control. Also, it seems a little unstable when using excessive spins other than topspin. It doesn't give that crisp pop on a slice that some racquets do. One major flaw with the design of the racquet: it is very fragile compared to today's standards of racquets. The paint on the frame chips extremely easily, and the bumper guard doesn't seem to be as sturdy as some of the new racquets that friends / playing partners have.

If you want more reviews, I suggest checking here: nPro Open Reviews.

Re: Which is better? Wilson K-Fury or Wilson nPRO Open

The best kind of racquet is one that complements your game.
If you are a flat hitter, you want a racquet that will help you generate some spin for consistency, e.g a racquet with an open string pattern. Conversely if you like to generate your own spin, you might not want a racquet that assists you with that.

If you can generate your own pace with good racquet head speed, you might want a heavier racquet with a smaller head, but if you need a racquet to generate pace for you and you're not swinging through the ball,a lighter racquet with a bigger head might be a better option.

If you like to serve and volley, play the net, your racquet needs will differ from a defensive baseliner.

From the specs of the nPro open, it seems topspin friendly. The weight is average and it is headlight so it should be easy to maneuver.

The K-Fury is very light, even-balanced, open string pattern and a midplus. If you are a beginner I would recommend the K-Fury, but I feel you will improve better with the nPro Open.

Definitely Kfactor, by far my favorite racquet.
