in short, i have been using this racket for over 15 years know and i think its time to change mainly because my stringer says every time its the last time i will string this hehe. no serioously i have cracks in the frame and maybe a new racket is not sucha bad idea. i use the gold lettering on the yellowish frame 16x20 strings mid size and i use nadals strings at 25kg , i do suffer from cronic TE which i treat with ice and i hit quite hard according to my partners ( i weigh 100kg and have power in my arms ) what i love in this racket is the control it offers when hitting hard, it also allows good topspin, accurate serving ( not really powerfull ) so any suggestions ? from what i read TF335 , aerogel 200/300 mfil series , babolat pure drive , what about cortex ? and last but not least , any of you who like me used this stick ( the select pro ) what did u change to ?
