View Full Version : need input for new racket

04-20-2004, 12:51 PM
Hello. I am looking for a new racket to replace my triad 3.0 strung with wilson sensation at 63 lbs.

i'd think im a 3.5 player wanting to improve over the summer. i will be taking private lessons then.

i'd like a racket that would last me for a year or two. something that would help me get better i guess.

im trying an extreme western forehand grip for maximum topspin.

i'd like a racket that can give lots of spin, power, and control. maybe not as light as the triad 3.0 though. maybe 9.6+ ounces.

i demo'd the H6 and i like it alot

Have you tried a Prince TT Warrior? It is a great racket with awesome spin and pretty good power. Plus, its going pretty cheap on TW right now.

Sounds like you need to try the head liquidmetal 4. I currently use the LM radical MP but I must say that a the LM4 is a pretty nice racquet. It's weight is around the mid 9 I think and is evenly balanced. I think it has a great balance of power and control and the string pattern is ideal for spin. The racquet also has a really nice dampaned feel to it and gives off NO vibrations. Great racquet...... Try it out.

Private lessons ! Now your really on your way ! Probably the best decision you will make. My recmnd. is the POG oversize @ the same tension your using now .

K, that's like 12.6+ oz.

Ronaldo yr. right . I'm just "hyped" on that frame. I think it would be a good choice along with lessons. You know "grow" with it . Anybody who's serious will pass lesser weighted frms. quickly.

i'd like to keep an open mind, BUT! i'd like to stick with wilson.

sry if i sound stubborn, but right now, i guess i'd be willing to try anything right now.

EDIT: would u guys recommend the Wilson Surge 5.1 midplus for me?

btw, todays my birthday! whoopee for mee.

Finchy, you are in a Wilson sweetspot, so many in that weight range. H6 OS is closest overall to what you are using.

Just remember your Triad 3.0 has a 115" head, Surge 100".

my triad 3.0 is 110 sq. inches. i tried the H6 midplus though, and im kinda used to its hitting area.
