    I had been thinking of it for a quite a long time and I am now sure that your game depends mostly on you , racquet can not make you a better player . As many of you remember , I was trying to customize my wilson npro open and I have tried all the possible places where to place lead. I used it in stock form at the practice today and I was just unbeatable . I could do just everything I had only been dreaming of , my reaction was just superb . I am so proud now to have stopped thinking about lead all the time. BTW , I find strings to be much more important . I am looking forward to getting some feedback from players , who also think that racquets can not make you play better , we could even create a club :)

    Sorry but I have to disagree.

    A racquet suited to a players technique/style of play can help him/her play "better" so technically it CAN make a player play better. Yes, most of the time it is due to the technique (when people blame their racquets for hitting long balls etc), but heres a quick and simple example. I tried using an oversize racquet (same string pattern as my current sticks which are midplus) a while back for fun, and I coudlnt seem to place any of my shots with accuracy. I think choosing a good racquet that suits you, and that you are confident with, will help you overall in becoming a better player...

    With your example, I think you just wanted to customise for the sake of customising when your stock racquet suited you just fine. Thus adding all that lead and experimenting didnt really help you.

    I too have to disagree. If you went out on the court tomorrow with a super oversize, sub 9ounce racket with a stiffness of 71, you probably wouldn't do very well.

    However, I agree with your basic idea. Once you get a racket, stick with it. Switching back and forth between rackets isn't going to help you at all.
