Ive been playing tennis for years, but am coming off a long break from the game due to injury and illness. I am looking for a racket that is forgiving on forehand shots and I use alot of my own power on. Any suggestions?

Few racquets are more forgiving than the Kneissl Black Star. It is also quite low powered despite its huge hitting area.

From MY experience, because I suffered the same, I recommend:

1. Volkl Classic V1
2. Volkl DNX V1
3. Boris Becker V1

Babolat Aero PD was the most forgiving frame I ever hit with. In my opinion a very underrated frame, since the Pure Drive get all the recognition these days. The sweet spot on that thing is the size of Texas ;) No arm/shoulder problems. The least forgiving is the original Prince TT Hornet - super stiff with tiny sweet spot -makes you wanna quit tennis!!! You might also consider the Radical MP or OS - awesome frames as well.

PK Rendondo MP is perhaps the most forgiving, arm, shoulder friendly, players frame available today.
Fishers are also very comfortable.

you might wanna stay away from those babolat rackets, since everyone has varied thoughts on the cortex and they all have high stiffness ratings. (except the pure storm series). choose a racket with a bigger head size, lower stiffness, open string pattern, as heavy as you can handle, and string it at the lower end of the tension range. fischer racket fit in this category nicely.

C10 is very forgiving, low powered, and very user friendly.

Exactly right. The C10 is flexible and extremely arm-friendly, with a huge sweetspot and tremendous control.

Try o3 tour midplus or oversize. All of the o3 tours have nice, big sweetspots, and are very dampened. They have plenty of pop too.

I also give my vote to the 03 Tour MP. I have been using 3 of them for this last year and it's a bit lighter than the POG with a faster swing speed. It doesn't have quite the pop as the new speedport tour. The speedport tour has noticeable power for serves and a bit more contol for volleys but it seems it is also very easy on the joints.

Try the new Microgel Radical. Great feedback without being harsh.
