Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

I use the Wilson [K] Factor Six-One Team or something like that. It's ok, but recently after playing with other people's rackets I have realised how bad it is for me. It is way too light so I need to get a heavier racket because I can easily produce my own power and the control just isn't there. Especially when playing with big banger strings. :weirdo:

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

I've always played with Babolat's Pure Drive. I had Pure Drives, then Pure Drive Cortexs and had Pure Drive GTs and I was always succesful at mindless ballbashing, Now I decided to switch and now im using Head Flexpoint's Instinct. Is like my PD but now I have control. LOVING IT! But it takes time to make the adjustment. and I had to suffer to get 3 of them becayse they're almost dissapeared.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

The wilson Kfactor Ktour! (the one Henin used before she retired) with babolat prohurricane tour 16.
But I want to change but can't decide between: Wilson Pro Tour BLX, Babolat aero prodrive GT (Nadal), Babolat pure storm GT (stosur and Gonzalez) or the yonex RQiS 2 (the one Kirilenko is using).

Can someone give some good advice :D
MayB some info will help XD

I'm an agressive baseliner but I like to go to the net to finish off the points. My favourite shots are the serve and the backhand. I use a lot of spin on my forehand but flatten out my backhand. Plus I use the slice from time to time :)

I use an old heavy version of Wilson Pro-Tour with small head but looking to switch to Yonex.

In general, you want to use the heaviest racquet you can swing comfortably.

Heavier racquets tend to be evenly balanced or head light, which means that the weight is concentrated in the handle, not the racquet head.
This makes the heavy racquet easier to swing.
They also absorb more shock from off-center hits (which as a newcomer to tennis you will have a lot of) and so are better for your arm.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

I use the Head Liquidmetal 4, and have for about 2 years. It's very cheap (only about $70) and is an EXCELLENT racquet for mediocre players (not great players, but not beginners either). Also, I string my own racquets, and I've found that this is the easiest racquet I've ever strung (easy specs, good holes, long lasting grommets, etc).

I've demoed a bunch of newer rackets, like the Head Youtek, KFactor, BLX, some Yonex ones... none of them give me the control, consistency, and occassional power that I have with the LM4.

If you're a player looking to step past beginner, and don't want to spend a lot on a racquet, I would recommend this one for sure.

I string my racquets as well and use ATS Super Stringer. It's a drop weight.

Hmm the name is escaping me right now... But it's a Gamma, drop weight, 6 point mounting system with moveable clamps. To begin with it was very tedius, but I can do a racket in about 20-25 minutes now and for the price, I think it's great

Edit: The Gamma Progression II 602, here it is:
