I've never played much tennis and I have a Dunlop Superlong from the early 90s(I think). It's 1.5 over and oversized, am I okay running this for a bit while I work on getting my stroke consistent or am gonna groove something funky?

Could I get a recommendation for a current model maybe 100 sq in racquet that's under $150?

"1.5 over" -- what does that mean?

I'd say play with it, until you feel like you really NEED a new one. I love old racquets!

it's probably 28.5 inches long, or 1.5 inches over standard.

The superlong was 1.5 inches longer, big racquet, i believe you should play with whatever helps you play well, get into the game again, if you like it and want to buy another racquet look around do some demoing and have fun.

Thanks all,
I guess if I get hooked I'll update/grade. For now I'll flog away!
