View Full Version : Please Help! Former Head Graphite Edge user

80's Edge
08-12-2007, 08:06 AM
I'm trying to get back into tennis after many years; played 4.0 at the time. I used the Head Graphite Edge back in the 80's and I have been searching for years now, but cannot find a comparable replacement racquet in terms of touch, feel, and playability in todays racquet market.
I tried the Head Radical MP, Dunlop 200G & 300G, and 90's Wilson PS 6.2(?). Demo'd the Wilson PS(Sampras and Pre-Sampras), but too heavy and too stiff. The Wilson PS 6.2(?) was the closest, but not quite. It did not have the feel and pop (plow through); especially on backhand slices and drop shots, the ball tended to rise and drift.

Had tendency to lean towards Head racquets because of their former grip shape and reshaping capability, but noticed they don't have foam in the handles anymore and changed it to a more rectangular shape from octagon.

Searching for former Head Graphite Edge users out there that found a suitable replacement racquet; please help.

Have you ever tried the Prestige Classic 600?

Why not the Pro Kennex Redondo?

FYI: I went from a Head Graphite Edge to a Dunlop Max 200G, and thence to a Volkl C-9 spec'd out to resemble the Volkl C-10. You might want to try to vaunted C-10.

Redondo, yes. I love the Graphite Edge too and now I use the Redondo.
