View Full Version : Can anyone recommend a raqcquet for high school player?

08-14-2004, 09:49 AM
I am a high school player and I am looking to replace my 300g. I play an all court game, hit with a good amount of spin and my best shots are my serve and my forehand. Of all the racquets that I tried so far my two favorites were the lm prestige midplus and the n90 and my least favorite was the n95. I only want to demo three more racquets and wanted to know if anyone had any recommendations.

Why do you want to change?
And what do you expect from that change?

More control and more stability, the 300g was a very unstable racquet even after adding lead tape at 3 and 9 o'clock. With the lm prestige and the n90 I could swing hard and be confident that the ball would not sail long as it would with the 300g.

You want less power and more stability.
I would go for a heavier and/or more flexible racquet, more a player's racquet than a tweener's.
Your choices are far from the 300g, try something closer to the 300g specs, I recomend Babolat PC, if you want to stay Dunlop the 200XL or 200g, Wilson n-SiX One 95.

Try the Fischer PRo #1 Ft or a Volkl Tour 10MP Vspec

I would try the Fischer Pro #1 (both versions). The non-FT is an all-time great and the FT is lighter and more dampened. If you already like the nCode Tour and the LM Prestige MP, though, you might want to concentrate on deciding between those two.

I want to try the fischers but there is no way I can demo one. I am thinking about demoing the POG midplus the C10 and one of the RDX 500's. Are those good choices?

Certainly those are good choices. I personally do not care for the POG or the C10 but there are plenty of folks who do. I am a big Yonex fan; I've yet to come across a piece of junk with the Yonex name on it.

i switched from my 300g to the n-six-one 95 its a pretty good overall racquet. I demoed the lm prestige and the n90 but for some reason i like the 95 better.

Wilson PS 6.0 95

I switched from an i.Prestige and never looked back. The racquet is very stable has a ton of spin.

Would the lm prestige mid be a good racquet to try? Can anyone compare its weight to the n90 becasue I'm not sure if I can handle an racquet that is hevier then the n90.

I'm making the switch from i.pres to LM Pres (both midplus). I demoed the LM and enjoyed it more than the i. I am also a high school player and really enjoy the prestige. I'd just concentrate on the 2 you really like and decide from there but if you're lookin for others definatly the above mentioned Yonex, also the Bab Pure Drive Std might be a good one for you to try. As for the LM Pres mid the weight TW says the weight of the n90 is 12.4 and the LM mid is 12.3oz, although the the n90 is a bit more headlight (2pts). If you can handle the n90 then give the mid a try.

The LM Prestige Mid is a lot hevier than the n90. It is a very heavy racquet. The Midplus is quite a bit lighter, though.

Thanks for the replies. I tried the tour 10 v engine mid this weekend and I liked it more then the n90, my serves were amazing I I had a lot of control on ground strokes. I also tried the pure control which had too much power for me.

I dont think I will be able to handle the weight of the lm prestige mid so i was wondering if the prestige classic mid would be a good racquet to demo beacause it has a lower swingweight than the lm.
