I'm really excited to get these (I just ordered two this weekend) and get out on the court. I've worked on my fitness some more, dropped 10 pounds and my legs have been the most strong that they've been so I'm ready to go.

I'm going to be switching from the Pure Strike. They've been very good, but I could use more power particularly since I play like Kim Clijsters and get myself running quite a bit into the corners and needing some more pace and strings haven't done it in the Pure Strike yet.

I used to use a Yonex RQiS 1 Tour and I still have it in the closet, but because I can't buy another one, I've switched over to Babolat.

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

Still using the Dunlop Biomimetic M6.0.

Although .... I'm considering demoing some heavier models since I've evolved my game quite a bit and I'm entering a weight-loss program. So we'll see.

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

Update: I finally got to hit with the Pure Drives on court, and WOW have I been missing out. I had the perfect blend of power and spin and control for my game. I strung them with Babolat Origin at 55 lbs. Took a little getting used to not having to work so hard to hit the ball like I had to a bit with the Pure Strike, but once you've got it, it's an amazing racquet. It totally makes sense as to why so many WTA and ATP pros use it. I was able to pretty much do anything I wanted.

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

Yep. They're so great, for any style tbh. Versatility and feel is untouchable IMO

For sure! Playing like Clijsters, I value being able to hit strong shots while on defence, and especially off the forehand, I cracked many on the run winners with it, kept the ball deep consistently and it just overall suited my game so much more.

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

I use Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph. Used to use Pro Staff 90, but finally switched last year.

I am not a Fedtard at all, on the contrary, but I just love heavy, heat light racquets and also control and stability this racquet provides.

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

As for me, I still play with Prince EXO3 White, sometimes I switch for the old Prince O3 Speedport White. And I'm still absolutely satisfied

Anyone currently using Prince Textreme 95 Tour? I need some reviews.

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

Hi guys. I bought these rackets on Amazon and I still don't seem to able to figure out which HEAD model this is.

The description on Amazon said Head Microgel Pro but I am not able to find this model anywhere. I mean, there are MG Radical and Prestige which is written on the frame of the racquet.

Does anyone have a clue?

Thanks!

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?



Yesterday this came in the mail. With Luxilon Element @ Mid Tension. Serves felt GREAT. And today I get to use it in a live match.

I'm feeling good about it.
