I never went back to Wilson because of how crappy the first Wilson "Walmart" purchase was. I just have a negative connotation about the brand. But I guess the Wilson rackets that come from proshops, etc. are extremely quality after reading all 33 pages of this thread. Might demo those.
Choosing a racquet isn't only about brands. A lot of the brands all have good racquets.

You gotta think about how long and how fast your strokes are, how much power you generate.

And how much power and control you want from the racquet.

Go with a racquet that is perfect for your style, don't change your style to be perfect for a racquet.

Good luck with your search!

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

I've used Wilson nBlade and later kBlade for several years before I finally got my hands on BLX JUICE 96... I was shocked at how much a racket can make a difference. The blades were pretty neutral, they don't have any real advantages to other racquets, while Juice's (I love the name) weight and shape, leave the awesome design behind, makes it amazing for all kinds of spins and gets you much control as well as power. It's kind of like playing tennis in another dimension, allthough I'm sure there's other racquets who make an even bigger effect.

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

Switching from Yonex VCore 100s to Yonex Ezone Xi 100.

I've been wanting to for a couple of months and the ezones finally went on sale.



My usual string is Luxilon 4G but I'm trying Yonex Poly Tour Pro.

Playtest both of them, and buy whichever one best suits your game.

You're not really giving a lot of information here. What racquet did you use before? What is your playing style? What sort of string pattern do you like: open/dense? Do you plan to customise? Unless if you want to ask people who've specifically used those racquets. I have not. Maybe read some reviews if you can't demo it.

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

I have used the Wilson six one-95 for 2 years now with the 16x18.
I think i makes good effort and topspin. If I have to replace it, i would go for the new model i Wilson Pro Staff

Before you purchases any, i recommend you do a test to try them out.
You should pickup a demo at your tennis club if they sell racquets

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

Just moved from my Wilson Juice back to Babolat! I love the Pure Strike! Groundies are all really good, serve still needs to be worked out a bit but I've only used it once so far. Once I get it strung to what I normally use, it should be even better too.

Re: What tennis racquet do you use?

I use Babolat AeroPro Drive Lite. Is a really good racquet! I recommend it.

I just bought the Babolat Pure Drive Wimbledon edition. It looks awesome.
