I've demoed a bunch of newer rackets, like the Head Youtek, KFactor, BLX, some Yonex ones... none of them give me the control, consistency, and occassional power that I have with the LM4.

If you're a player looking to step past beginner, and don't want to spend a lot on a racquet, I would recommend this one for sure.

LOVE that racket. It strikes and serves really well, but it always felt too light in my hand.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

I really do use the old Prince Turbo Shark like the one TOB used to win Wimby. I want to get a new one, but it's still in good shape and I can't justify junking a good racket on a whim. Maybe one of these days.

Most of my tennis fundage gets spent on my son right now anyway. He uses a Wilson NCode. We actually bought up several when they discontinued it, but they're getting pretty beat up. We'll probably have to replace them soon.

Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

Prince O3 Speedport White. I was a long time Head racquet owner, and treated myself to an upgrade to a Microgel after my shoulder surgery a couple of years ago. The vibration was awful on my reconstructed shoulder and the weight too much, so I demo'd a few different racquets before settling on the Prince Speedport, which was like a Godsend, the way it cut through the air and had amazing response time. I wouldn't swap that racquet for anything. In fact, I went out and bought a couple more frames just in case Prince quits making them.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

anyone know where I can find another wilson hammer 3.2 power holes. It's an older racket, probably 9 or 10 years older.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

Yonex RQS 11, I'm in love with this racket makes me play very well, it suits my game a lot, I mean I bought this racket 3 or 4 months after I bought my other racket, the Wilson nCode nSix-Two, and I could play with them both when my game was taking shape, but right now I just can't play with the wilson lol.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
