Are most good senior players in your area using oversized racquets?

No. Best one I know is about 55-ish, uses i.Rad MP.

Probably 60/40 oversize. Some people will never give oversize a try and always stay with what they have used.

I don't know of a senior in my area -- good player or bad player -- that DOESN'T use an oversize.

Most of the seniors use OS racquets around here. But most of them play doubles. If I were playing doubles exclusively I might switch to an OS racquet too :)

Yes, Oversize racquets should be used by seniors only.

That's the precise segment of the population they were originally designed for, in truth.

In the USTA Middle States section 45 & 55 players at the tournaments I played in the last few years the split seems to be 70\30 oversize.
I am talking about the doubles players. The singles guys are closer to 60\40, Oversize with there being only a few of the sub 95 inch frames being used.:cool:

I think a senior player who's 3.5 and up should have no problem hitting with a midsize, if his swing is med fast and long I'd rather shoot for a midsize.

I think some use it to feel like Agassi. 35 year old who can still hit with the young guys.
