View Full Version : Racquet suggestions

I have been out of tennis for the last 5 years after playing intensely for over 20.I recently tried the Wilson K Blade tour 93,Six-One 95 18 x 20 and the Babolat Aeropro Drive.I loved the control that I experienced with the Wilsons however my shoulder was very sore(something I did not experience with the Babolat).I am wondering if these particular Wilson models are too heavy although there is not a significant difference in weight between the three racquets.I am going to demo the K blade tour 98, the K factor six one team,K pro tour 96" tour and the K factor K pro open 100".I would appreciate any helpful advice.What are your thoughts about the above mentioned Wisons and the Aeropro Drive?Thanks in advance.

In general, I'd say it would be smart for you to keep notes on the racquets that you try out. After a little time and a few demos pass by, it's really handy to have that reference to get an idea of which frames are a better fit for your game. Two numbers that I've become especially sensitive to in my racquets are static weight and balance. The one thing that's hugely subjective is feel - you have to figure that one out on your own, but other spec's may make one racquet a better fit for you than another. You've tried some perfectly good frames already and a few more down the road ought to help you get what you want into better focus.
