View Full Version : Racquet head speed vs. Mass of racquet

What is more important, a lighter racquet which you can generate more racquet head speed with or a heavier racquet which adds more mass to your shots but sometimes are late with? The two racquets in consideration are Wilson ProStaff Tour 90 vs Dunlop 300G. Thanks!!!

I'd take the heavier one because over time you'll become a better player. With that, your preparation and timing will become more precise as well (hopefully) allowing you to full take advantage of your racket's properties.
with a heavier racket over time, you can be able to swing it just as fast as a lighter racket. So now you have both mass and speed.

It seems to me that you shouldn't have to swing as hard with a heavier racket. You also seem to be able to get more spin for less energy with a heavier racket. Swing is also more controled.

the 300G is a crappy racquet, don't get it because you think a pro is usng it, none are.
If you are going to get in a car crash with a Volkwagon Beetle (tennis Ball) would you want to be in light car or a heavier car...
