I currently play with wilson tour 90 and love it alot. One problem is it wear my arm out after 2-3 hours of play. I'm thinking about getting a tour 95 which is lighter to be my backup racquet to play during those tiring hours or in long match. Have anyone out there ever play with a different racquet for that purpose?..is it strange? :roll:

What's strange is that you seem to think it's unnatural to be worn out after 2-3 hours of play. Perhaps you should listen to what your body is telling you rather than try to surmount it.

TD5.0, it's not strange at all. Some people use a different racquet for serving. I carry two different kinds of racquets. One is heavier for those days when I am feeling fit and one for those days when I'm a little tired or off on my timing. I say do whatever works b altfor you.

A pro named Dennis Ralston did the same thing . He was a Davis Cup player for the U.S. in the 60's.

may I suggest cayman's tnt 90. essentially a clone of the ps 85 but at 90 sq in. lighter also at just over 11 oz. you can get a new one for $60 but some sellers on this board sell used ones for $35. I've got one with lots of lead on it. my backup? Orig. PS 85.

What she's trying to tell you is that you don't need a backup racquet because it's just natural to be worn out after that length of sustained play, the transition between two totaly different racquets could potentially be damaging to your game!

the strategy here is to go on with the match without giving up because of a fatique arm...
