Prince! I LOVE the appearance of the cross bar stabilizers :D Oh and I like the circular heads too. Down with the fanheads (Head), boxheads (Yonex) and the powerheads (Wilson) :rocker2: :ras:

Yonex - like Monica! :)

They are the best racquets for people with double handed backhands, and the heads are so big, you can get great reach at the net.

My first racquet was a Dunlop, i then switched to Wilson, Right now, i have a Prince.

I would love to get my hands on a Babolat Pure Drive, just very hard to get in South Africa.

I used wilson prostaff for almost 5 years, it was awesome :worship:
it's easy to control the ball especially when it comes to volleying.

then for a while I used the old rac of serena , to get more power
like when you're getting old you need more help
the hyper hammer is suitable

now I've found home with Babolat pure control :)

I would like to use the Yonex racquets that Daniela's using..but I'm sticking to Fischer Pro number 1 currently used by Virginia Ruano Pascual and Francesca Schiavone..The brand which Meg. Shaughnessy and Vera Zvonareva 's using also..On the men's side,Andrei Pavel and Yevgeny Kafelnikov uses it as well....I would say it's a brilliant head-light racquet..Wonderful slim stick,pro-lookin as well...pple say only the serious tennis player would use Fischer racquets..hee...

I would love to try Yonex and babolat(sp). No one sell them in the stores, i'll probably have to buy it online to try it.

Apr 22nd, 2004, 04:37 PM
I use a Yonex Ultimum Ti. I will NEVER use a Prince racket because that's what Michael Chang used, and I've never liked him. :rolleyes: Yes, I know I'm going to Hell... :angel:

funny to see that some people select their racket because their favourite player plays with that brand :eek:

It's much better to use a racket that feels best for yourself..

'B' on it...odd shape. never seen one before

I am using a Yonex RD-Ti 80. I really like this one.... It´s great.. I needed some weeks to get used to the racquet but now I am doing very well..... Although my backhand didn´t improve, I have a much better volley-feeling and a better touch for drop-shots. Would love to use this V-con series, too.
Until last year, I played a Völkl racquet, I think the series was called Quantum 10. I really liked it, but I had several problems with tennisarms.... I served better than now, but now I have a better control and I definitely think that this racquet is better!

Since some days I'm playing the Dunlop 300G :worship: before i had the 200G, and now I'm really happy with my new Racket, especially my backhand has more power since that time and my Service is better. Great Racket! :yeah:

I was using Yonex Ultimun RQ Ti 1700 and now I switched to MP 5i, and I love them, the solid feel when you hit the ball. I play mainly from the baseline with flat shots and its beautiful to get this feel, you just play at ease...

I use that racquet as well (Head Liquidmetal Instinct). I started to get rid of it after I found out Myskina used it, though :devil: . I will always use Head racquets because that's what :angel: Arthur Ashe :angel: used.

I am using the one Lleyton Hewitt uses. Very solid, good control. I have been using it for almost 2 years now. Just love it. This is the 3rd Yonex I have and it suits me fine.

Volkl! :bounce:

But it depends on how good you are, Babolat, Wilson, and Prince racquets the majority suck because the are big and light. I am a 5.0 and I like small racquets with alot of weight where I can generate my own pace.

Volkl Quantum Tour 10 Mid is the best racquet ever made!

93 Square Inches, About 12 Ounces, 63 Pounds (I String Myself!)

'Nuff Said... :hearts:

Yep this Völkl one is great, but after I switched to Yonex I have to admit that I don´t have problems with my arms any more (what was a big problem with the Quantum one) and my volleys improved really! My service did a step back but my consistency is much better now because od the better control. But the racquet is not the lone important thing, it´s very important how many kp u have for instance. :)

I just dont understeand one thing:

Why is that that some pro plays with racet and than its a favorite racket for this pro fans :rolleyes: :confused:

For me is quite stupid! I'v never watch who is promoting which racket, I always choose racket that will support my game and not advertasing from a tennis player!!! :cuckoo: :hatoff:

I own a cheapo Wilson requet due to being short on cash at the mo. Its a Power Comp. I can't play much at the mo either.
