I think it's the Pro Lite actually. So a lightweight version. It has great feel. Only small downside is that you have to create power by yourself instead of letting the racket do it for you. But that's not an issue for me

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

Any opinions on the Yonex RDIS 100 midplus? The specs look like something I would do well with. Any alternatives to it if you guys don't like it?

However, when it was on it was ON It was creating a very loud gorgeous popping sound when struck clean and added to the effect of winners . As mentioned by many reviewers I can also feel tension in my elbow and shoulder now after using it...I really like it and do not regret purchasing it. I think with a little more practice it could become a great weapon!
Sorry such a late reply!
I love the racquet ever since i picked it up. I do sometimes fly the odd ball wide or long with it but i love its power and spin and i can maintain pretty good control. I saw alot of people said they could feel it in their elbow and shoulder but this hasnt happened to me yet

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

How much better would you say your racket makes you? Do you feel that you could lose to someone simply because you have a worse racket than them or is it more psychological? I'm very curious about the technology vs. technique aspect of tennis.

Obviously technique matters more than technology. However, having the wrong racquet can really hurt your game. For example, if you are a beginner and you are using a player's racquet, you will be hindered because players racquets aren't very forgiving and require you to have a full swing. At the same time, a very advanced powerful player using a beginner racquet will be hindered because they might have to adjust their swing in order to keep their balls in. Otherwise they will have a very very low margin of error.

I sometimes do think that way, knowing that I frame/shank shots because I downsized to a Midsize Plus. I also think it's more psychological. You have less confidence in your shots. Sometimes, your technique deteriorates because you compensate for a poor racket.

It's always amazing to pick up a racket and realize that it's perfect for your game.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

Well I'm sort of a beginner, just started playing regularly about a year ago and am wondering what would work for me. I like hitting big serves and a lot of my game is focused on my athletic ability, i.e. chasing down returns and hitting them back on the run a lot. I try to fit in some volley play as well. Any suggestions?

Do you know what level player you are? Do you use a lot of topspin? Do you have any injuries/body problems? Do you have long fluid strokes or short compact strokes?

No body problems, short strokes when I'm running around but big hits when I have some time. Top spin is a must in tennis, cmon!

What racquet do you currently use? Is there anything in particular that you want different?

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

Think I'm going to demo a few racquets for a potential buy over Xmas. Has anybody tried or can anybody recommend or comment on the following:

Babolat Aeropro Drive GT
Prince EXO3 White
Prince EXO3 Black

Currently playing with a Prince O3 Speedport White, which I love, but I kinda wanted to see what I've been missing. From the reviews I've read, I've heard that the Babolat is a stiff racquet that seems to lead to arm/wrist/shoulder injuries, which I don't like, having had arthroscopic shoulder surgery a few years ago, and being a hard, flat hitter. Any playing experiences?

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

^ used ex o3 white, similar to o3 white but u get a lot more easy power and control, i loved it. I just changed to head because prince racquet break to easy! id weakly hit it on the ground (yes im an angry player) and the frame would crack.
