View Full Version : Best 16 mains racquet for hitting flat?

Many people say dense pattern is great for hitting flat but I flatly don't like dense pattern. Any open pattern racquets good for hitting flat?

I found the Wilson nTour (16x20 @95sq) to be quite good at flat strokes. Good power, yet, nice reponse and control when hitting flat.

I am also interested in this question. What about the Yonex RDX 500-Mid?? Anybody have an opinion on how that would work for a flatter hitter used to denser string pattern sticks??

I use the Mid and have an eastern grip...I hit with moderate top about half the time, occassional heavier top on 10%, flatter on the remaining. Have found the Yonex to work very well for both topspin and flatter hits.

funlop 300g with some lead, you can't hit more flatter...

Try the Dunlop MaxPly McEnroe. Very good frame for a flat hitter. The Slazenger Pro Braided Henman was also good for flat hitters, expecially if you like a stiffer frame.
