The black paint looks so fierce!!

The only thing that irritated me in my change to getting some Wilsons from Babolat and Head is how extreme the flared but cap on the handle is.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

I have been playing with Biomimetic 300 Plus for two weeks now and it has worked quite well for me. I have an aggressive all court game, and this racket gave me so much control over my shot placement. It hurt my arm a little in the beginning but now I have got used to it and it is quite easy on the arm.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

The best racquets for playability and for being arm-friendly tend to share the same characteristics, such as being heavier with a head light balance and are very flexible. After a lot of research I have found
(Dunlop Biometric 100)which has a 59 RDC flex rating, weighs 11.8 oz and has a -7HL balance
(Prince EX03 Tour)which has a 54 RDC flex rating, weighs 11.4 oz and has a -6HL balance
(Babolat Pure Storm) which has a 58 RDC flex rating, weighs 11.9 oz and has a -10HL balance
a few other great choices would be:
HEAD-Youtek-IG-Prestige-MP which has a 63 RDC flex rating, weighs 11.9 oz and has a -6HL balance
Wilson Prostaff Six One BLX which has a 63 RDC flex rating, weighs 11.6 oz and has a -7HL balance

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

Hey guys, I am going to buy 3 rackets tomorrow (the same) and as they don't sell the RDIS 300 in Australia anymore, I was wondering which of the Yonex VCore 100S and the Yonex VCore 100 XI is better???

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

Since the Yonex Vcore Xi 100 has just been released, it would be hard to comment on its performance. According to their specs, both of them are quite similar except for a few minor details (Xi is a bit stiffer and has a synthetic grip). But it all depends on you actually, if you are a risk-taker go with it, but if you prefer to be conservative go with Yonex Vcore 100S.

I used to use the RDIS 300 but they don't make them any more and I heard that thee were similar and they looked very similar I love them so much They generate so much power I haven't had them re-strung yet and they are still so good

If you haven't purchased them already I would suggest getting a few demo;s of the different yonex rackets. I will be getting the vcore 100 XI light and heavy; vcore team 97 lite and the vcore xi 98. I deal with Yonex rackets in the states. Can't tell you how they play. The vcore and Ezone xi are totally different rackets. You might want to try them all.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

I am a senior member & the racket I used was a Wilson T2000 steel tennis racket which I think is the "greatest" designed & made tennis racket of all time. The racket is quite heavy & has a small head but I found I could play both a "touch" & "power" game with this racket. From memory they were not that popular when they first appeared but jimmy Conners had great success with this particular racket. The only problem with this tennis racket is if you miss hit the ball on the steel frame the vibrations would hurt your arm but on the other hand when you did hit the tennis ball in the center of the racket you generated a lot of power. Cheers !
