What racket to you just feels amazing everytime you crack the ball with it and provides a feeling more addicting than a drug? To me there is only one racket, and I have hit with just about every racket out there made in the past 4 years.

My winner:
Microgel Prestige MP. Havent hit the mid yet but im sure that one is even sweeter.

I am laying with the microgel prestige pro and I like it but that is a different feeling for me. If you want to talk about a plush feel, my 200G has it. I don't play with it any more but when you block a hard volley with it...there is nothing like it. A buddy of mine plays with a head classic mid plus. It is burgandy and I think the head size is 102? Anyway, that is one very plush stick. If they sold them now, I would probably have been tempted by it. I just like those buttery feeling sticks. You know, when you swing through the ball, the stick just goes through without any hesitation.

Head Classic mp is the Prestige Tour/Trisys 300 without the suspension grip system. Both have a sweeter sweetspot in the sweetspot that is both airy, has no tension and is hot. Even the Pro Tour 630 feels less refined. Used the PK Ki 5 PSE, has an odd balance. Still own all three of these sticks.

Prostaff Classic 6.1 si for me. It's not my main stick because i'm having a hard time finding them and because of the stiffness but every time i hit with one, it's pretty orgasmic.

From all the recent opinions posted here, i'd say the AG 100 sounds like pretty addictive too.

I used to play with the Head Classic MP 102 and am selling it right now. The racquet has a really nice sweetspot and feels really good but I like the feeling on serves and volleys the Mid gives me and am sticking to it.

Mid serves great but when playing dubs, the small head made volleys tough. No longer worthy nor capable of wielding the mid effectively. Still have a few, actually owned pr. Goran's PC600XL.

Psychologists say that the most powerful reinforcement is intermittent. Give a rat an occasional reward, randomly, and he'll slave away a lot longer for it than a rat who gets regular, predictable pleasure.

So definitely the PS 85. Absolutely the best sweet spot ever made, even if so tiny that almost no one except pros were good enough to find it very often. I still remember my occasional rewards with that one after a decade away.

Rather than name a racquet per ce, I'd name a brand - Babolat. Over time I've found myself checking out, playingas my main frame, or going back to such frames as the Pure Control, the PD+ and the PDR. I'm also now getting to know the PST. For me, it's the supreme, pierless, numero uno power and spin dynamic, that on serves and groundies, makes Babs so very 'addicting.' The only racquet (non-Babolat) that I have a similar history with would be my super solid, super smooth PT 630.

My favorites, in order of preference:

1) Volkl C10 Pro 98. I finally have the game to use it properly, and there's no feeling in tennis like a cleanly-struck winner with this bad boy. There's nothing this frame doesn't do well, and for a feel player, it doesn't get any better.

2) Fox ATP Bronze. If the C10 didn't exist and I could find a stockpile of these, could easily use them as my everyday stick. Flexy, precise, generates impressive topspin given headsize. Nicest fit and finish I've ever seen on a tennis racquet.

3) POG OS single-stripe (no grommet, short pallet). HAS to be the best player's OS frame ever made. Addictive flex, tons of feel, and rock-solid stability. I'll never sell mine.

markwillplay
08-03-2008, 04:37 PM
yup, I forgot to mention the TW Donnay Pro One int. That fits the bill of addicting to hit with. It is very very plush and soft. Really fun to swing at the ball with that one. Not sure I have ever played with another stick that hit like it. It was softer than my 200G for sure. Not as stable at net but man what a soft touch with that one.

Vantage 100" (see my specs below). Huge sweetspot, great feel & comfort, and a spin/control/power combo that is perfect for my game. I tried them all (much to my wife's dismay..) and this stick is the definition of "addicting" for me.

Zielmann
08-04-2008, 08:39 PM
Agreed on the speedport tour. I tried three other demos from TW. I saved this one for last (mainly cause it's out of my price range). Glad I did, cause I wouldn't have used any of the other had I started with it. Great head speed, good control, great spin. Only problem with it was that it seemed a bit too powerful for me, as most shots were either just one foot in from the baseline or two feet past the baseline. Very forgiving, too.

I will say, though, that was the first time I've tried any new racquets since 2004. So I can't comment on any of the other newer stuff out there now.

I would have to say the old Head Graphite Edge series. It was addicting, and never have I used anything else since then that felt the same. I have tried many, but that one stands out.

Of the recent racquets, the TW Donnay Pro Number One is the closest. My game now no longer supports that kind of racquet though. The closest feel for my game now is the PK 5G - soft, yet with some power (although not much). But the feel is wonderful.

Many old school racquets had that addicting feel.

I have a few Wilson Reflex mids laying around and when I am on fire, nothing else compares. Even after the match I am smiling and still feeling the racquet nicely pocketing on my strings, asking me where I want it to land...

Of the recent racquets the Pro One Int'l MP has a rather addicting feel.

For me I'd have to say the PS 6.0 85...Just coming back to tennis after a 10 year layoff, but that was the racquet I played with exclusively back when I played a bunch. No chance of finding the sweet spot on a regular basis till I get going again but really an amazing racquet. Also got a chance to hit the Head PT280 for the first time recently (my regular partner plays with one) and it was awesome as well. Didn't realize until I found this forum that there was such a following of the PT280, I see what the fuss is about now though.

My elbow still aches from that trip to the DarkSide. May the ice packs be with you.
Haha, I hear that a lot. I guess I just like stiff rackets, as I play with Hurricane 17/VS 16 strung at 62lbs with no pain at all.

ps85 and fisher pro classic 90.

Tennis buddy actually asks to hit with my Pro Classic 90. Haven't the heart to tell him I sold it on this board 2 yrs ago.

hmmm,:oops:

play w/ PDR but still looking for that racquet that is like whoa!!!!!!!!!!!

It's a combo of flex, grip shape ,power, spin, control, headsize and shape

I'm on the demo hunt for it though. Gonna be trying maxply mac, m fil 300, pb 8, head rad pro 100 and maybe some others :mrgreen:

:mrgreen: what would I do without you Mr. Green:mrgreen:

Curious, is that the Borg Pro? Stiffest all-wood racquet IMHO.

Head XRC.
.

Wow, I didn't know anyone else knew about XRC. I have one that I use as a training racquet, what a beast! The feel is amazing at impact, just plows through the ball like it was made of sponge. Even the SV PS 85 can't compare.

M Fischer M Pro (red/black version) is the most addicting racquet I've used to date.

I just got a PC600 at a reasonable price and took it out for a spin. Too soon to have a definitive opinion on it but it sure seems this is a very addictive racquet...

love my ag100. just ever so slightly leaded up at 3 and 9, leather grips, it's light, responsive, but absolutely substantial through the ball. took a long time to find a racket with feel like that, without feeling like i was hitting with a fossil.

i like fossils, btw, but personally, i find it difficult to whip up and through the ball with the racketspeed i like with a 13+ oz. club, and hard to bring a racket like that around in time when i'm up against a really good player.

I just hit with a Fischer M Comp 95 and I did not want to put it down. A friend of mine had that and several others from the Fischer line including the new Progressor. We also hit with some old woodies(a MacGregor and some other rare one that I had not heard of). The M Comp 95 just feels like butter and I will most likely purchase it from him soon.

Although I enjoy hitting w/ many different rackets, my current top favorites of '08 would have to be the Borris Becker 11 MP and the Tecnifibre VO2 Max Tfight 325 XL in stock form.

I even like the Head Agassi Radical Limited Edition a lot, especially w/ 10grams of lead at the butt. The Prince Original Graphite mid w/ lead is awesome too...

PD Roddicks, the power with the spin is addicting. Used to play with MG Prestige MP. Liked them, but the spin on the Roddick was addicting ;-]

My addiction is to a leaded up Becker Pro. I am coming from a PDR. No look back.

Hmmm, for me there were quite a few. Fischer Pro 90 (Stich) this is my definition of a "scalpel", various versions of Pro no 1, some old old mostly fiberglass Volkl (can't remember the name of it), some of the Puma Boris Becker series, older prestige frames with a nice responsive string (not so good with poly), vantage frames are also up there.
Too many to list because I liked them for different reasons.

I played with the XRC but the thing broke (don't remember where). It was a monster of a racquet. All fiberglass I think. Back in the days when even non-wood racquets had feel.

nSix-One 95 16x18. I'm reluctant to even try anything else. I haven't hit with a different racquet in over a year now.

Becker Pro is very addicting to me. And the full string bed VS gut PT630. Not to mention the SV

My 200G MW was addictive.

Then I bought a Dunlop TP95 and had an epiphany, and got addicted.

Then I bought my AG300s and had another epiphany, and got addicted again.

Now I'm looking for another epiphany by leading up one of my AG300s to see what that's like.

Meantime, my wife wants me to stop taking epiphanies, as they're bad for your heart :-(

Pimp (why do I like calling you that :shock:) Addictions are curable....but why bother on this one - it is so much fun. And unless your wife threatens to kick you out - go for it!!!

POG oversize! I have used them for 25 years and can't imagine any other racquet that feels thy way it does. You can generate such pace with control without any real effort.

No doubt. I don't have the batspeed to swing them, or I'd be playing these, too.

I think the racket that doesn't tire your arm out. Yonex for one. also racket that gives you predictable power and extra power is there just when you need it.
