a racket poem:

"A Racket of Racquets...?"

From one racquet to another
Choose me over some other
Why, said the latter
Is this one better?

In dilemma is the player
How to choose the maker
Prince, Wilson or Yonex
But that's not all to vex

Dunlop, Babolat or Head
ProKennex or Fisher instead
How about custom-make?
Specifications just to state

More to follow a thought
Prestige and Radical brought
With Prostaff and Thunderbolt
And the ever-classic still the lot

Control, power and precision
Cool and modern innovation
Different colours and shapes
Reasons behind each takes

Head light or heavy
For game-play savy
Oversize or Midplus
How so will it pass?

Wilson Hammer Series to Triad
Babolat Pure Control and Drive
Prince Triple Threat to Scream
Bandit, Hornet or Rebel team

Dunlop Inferno & Spirit
ProKennex Core to Kenetic
Yonex Ultimum to V-con
But there's more to go on!

Wrist, elbow and shoulder
Safety to each consider
Efficiency and weight sum
The overall rankings done

T F N guide a read
For clues thyself a need
And racquets of great masters
In tournaments each musters

Then comes affordability
More than one feasibility
Trying each for a choice
Any good feel to voice?

This is the one, I think
To home with me I bring
For next game, I will take
What a racket it will make!

No mention of Volkls? Tsk tsk tsk ...

Oh yeah, kind of forgot that Volkls are now non-existent in Singapore. You're forgiven, Yew!
