What kind of racquet do you have??

He could be using a racquet not suited for him.

No, it's true. It's a conspiracy and we're all in on it.

probably because when you pick up the other person's racquet and start hitting you figure: hey, if i suck with this, i'll blame it on the frame. so you relax, calm down, finally focus on your strokes, and hit better. voila!

Because we're not professionals. We don't rely on any one stick to make our living so, for us, it's still fun. Part of that fun is trying different frames and getting a fresh kind of feel.

As they say, 'the grass is always greener.....'

you expect to hit well with your racquet, so you only notice when you hit bad, not when you hit well. with other people's racquets, you have the opportunity to exceed your expectations.

Also, with other people's racquets, you concentrate more on mechanics because the feel is new.

Or. Other people have good racquets and you don't.

or because half the world is playing with the puredrive, and that can make anyone hit the ball harder!

Yeah, just like in a fancy restaurant when the other person's food always look more delicious than yours.
