Recommend a Raquet

Hi, I'm 5foot tall and an aggresive player who's looking for a better raquet. Right now I use Babolat's Nadal Junior which is 240g; headsize is 680 square centimetres and it's 25 inches (635mm) in length. Any recommendatons? A raquet and a link to where I can purchase it would be great. Thanks.

I would ask if you need anything in regards to more spin, more power, or more control from the one you have now, and how necessary is it to change rackets?

This is the racquet I use and it's pretty cheap I bought it for 110$



I'm guessing it's more for the advanced player though...but you should look at some head racquets because they're cheaper then like wilson or babolat and the play good aswell

Re: Recommend a Raquet

If you can, arrange to playtest a racket before you buy. Unless you're an absolute beginner it'll make a difference.

Re: Recommend a Raquet

I am a complete beginner, and would like some advice on purchasing a racket? I bought a random racket off eBay - Dunlop Slam 27. It seemed OK at first, but now when I strike the ball, it reverbrates up my arm and I feel serious pain. Now more than likely I am not striking the ball correctly, but then I tried a friend's old Wilson Hammer 6.7, and the anti-shock was really evident! Could anyone recommend a similar racket to this, with a lot of anti-shock, good for beginners? I am guessing a large sweet-spot would also help!

Re: Recommend a Raquet

I decided to get the Rodger Fedder Wilson 110 racket it has light weight technology and of course shock wave. I would highly recommend this racket for beginners it only cost me 30 quid too so why not try it out

Re: Recommend a Raquet

I'm just starting to play around for fun. I have never played, but I would appreciate it if someone here could recommend me a good starting racket that's cheap/affordable. I'm about 5ft 9 if that helps. Thanks!

Re: Recommend a Raquet

Try a Babolat Aero Drive, it'll help you develop hitting topspin and with that you can be more aggressive.
