I have ten Rossignol wood rackets, a fiberglass Yamaha, a set of three oversize graphite rackets (two of which are Red Chinese cheapies)...and an old wood racket (uncertain make)... The most frequently used of the lot are the wooden Rossignols. I have to strip the grips off of them, sand them down --to get the glue off-- and build them back up with duct tape to 4 5/8"
I'm 49, and I think the first racket I played was a Spalding Smasher...which had a smaller than average head size. Hence the movement against the high-tech trend...I went with a small head size (old wooden technology) rather than lighter and bigger graphite or boron fibers...to recapture the 'feel' from my youth.
Of course, when they go whippy, as those rackets may, I'm stuck.
