    I came across their website, and they claim to be making the most elbow-friendly racquets. Has anybody heard of the Mitt or Mittusa racquets? Are they really as good as they claim to be?

    I have heard of them, I don't see how their rockers prevent tennis elbow. to me they are no different than Wilson rollers and you don't hear anyone claiming roller frames to be good for tennis elbow.

    I think Don Torgerson had one for sale. Haven't seen him on these boards in a while though...

    I have a customer that sends his frames in to get strung once in a while..... I think that those metal rcokers are a pain in the *ss..... kinda like have leather power pads on every string... he swears by it..... then again.. I think he is the only guy in the state on Minnesota playing with one...

    They have a Longbody version of one of their frames, it looked interesting... But then again, they are a little pricy just to try them out.

    I had one.It sucked big time.When I first got it,I didn't know what I was doing so I "thought" I liked it....but then when I demoed a ton of racquets(now I use ps6.0 95).It became a joke.the bottom line is:the design of the raquet is such that the ball "dies" on contact and also if you notice when you check the balance it is BEYOND head heavy!

    Well, if they are so much head-heavy, I still do not see how they could be good for arm & elbow ...

    If you are looking for an arm friendly tweener racquet I would suggest trying the Volkl V1.

    I have a Mitt which I use when I get the occasional tennis elbow - it works. Then I go back to my regular racquet.

    Mitt tennis rackets

    I am looking for a couple of Mitt Max Power tennis rackets. I prefer a 4 3/8" grip but am flexable. Let me know if you have one to sell. No cracked frames please. Broken string, worn bumber guard or worn grip OK.
    Thanks
    Greg

    I have a Mitt Rocker Extreme 110, 4 3/8 if you're interested. It's a great rehab racquet when recovering from acute tendidnitis.
