Which way to go?

I am thinking about changing my racquet. I played with a graphite racquet before, but was wondering whether titanium would be better to switch to. Does anybody know what is difference in play? Which one do you play with?

btw, which ones do pros play with?

I think the difference between the two is that titanium is lighter than graphite. That's how it feels for me anyway.

The pros are using both types. Pat Rafter uses a titanium Prince racquet, I think. Anna Kournikova looks like she is using a new titanium Yonex.

I used to use a graphite until I switched to titanium 3 weeks ago. Titanium definitely feels lighter. I was told they suit claycourt players better. Doesn't make a difference to me. But then I only play on plexipave and grass.

I play with a graphite racquet. But I would like to try a titanium one as they are a lot lighter.

Yes, I didn't like the feel. When I swing with it it seems as if I swing as hard as I can and nothing is coming out of the racket. Like Nikki said titanuim is much lighter.
