View Full Version : Racquet Recommendations...Please!

05-09-2008, 07:22 AM
Greetings! I'm looking for some recommendations for a 2nd racquet. Currently I play with a early 1990's Prince Precision Graphite 700. I'm a recreational 4.0 player, male, 45 years old and commited to playing a lot more tennis this season. I'm looking to improve my game with more spin, control and power. I know a new racquet will not make me a better player, but I'm hoping to find a racquet that I can take with me to the next level. I'm sure there have been some changes in racquet manufacturing since the early nineties, so I thought I would get some suggestions here. I've been looking at Babolat and Wilson.

Any recommendations on specific models would be most appreciated.

Thanks very much,

I always like to reccomend Fischer's M Pro N. 1 it is awesome all around the court with great control and power. It has also gotten some great reviews. i would suggest demoing that if you could

Thanks. I'll check out the Fischer. I forgot to mention that I have a 2-handed backhand. I'm thinking a tweener would be best for me.
Any other suggestions?

Wow, 6 of the last 7 posters have just recommended the racquet they use.

Since it sounds like you haven't really used any 'new age' racquets, go ahead and demo a few, maybe a pure drive, o3/speedport white, a ktour or another tweener from the kfactor line, and maybe another popular tweener from another brand, or an OS/mid to see what your preference in headsize is. From there you can start getting looking at the range of racquets you could handle/like and can make a better choice, instead of listening to a few people who are probably on honeymoons with their racquets still.
