Started playing tennis 8 months ago, so i'm still a beginner but i've dedicated myself to tennis since i've started. I have bought 3 racquets till now. First was Head LM Rad. It was ok but i liked the smooth feeling of my friend's BLX team better so i decided to buy one. Unfortunately when i ordered, i've realized that they have changed the balance of the racquet in 2012 version and also increased the swingweight which makes me wasting money for nothing. My friend offered me to give his 6.1 team in exchange of LM rad and i've accepted it. After playing with it for a while, i've see that i can't return his heavy balls and the racquet has some stability problems. Also after i've tried to learn a proper swing and footwork, i liked the stiff feeling of LM and totally disliked my 6.1 team. Frame also lacked power which means it was not good for a topspin player. I wanted to give a try to a very stable and heavy, spin friendly frame so i bought a 6.1 BLX 95, 16x18. Been using it for 2 weeks now. After playing with it for a while, i just felt that it was my racquet. My forehand used to be ok but very inconsistent. I always knew there was some problem with it but didn't know what was it. After switching to BLX 95, i realized that i used to be arming the ball everytime. Due to the low stability and power level of blx team, i used to try to hit the ball very hard and that just didn't allow me to have a relaxed arm and wrist also a good position. After a few shots, i was feeling that my forehand shots were consuming my energy. With my new frame, i totally fixed the problem. I feel the plow through and stability, also the effordless power when i take a proper position and swing with a relaxed arm. Today, we have played for 2 hours including long rallies with my buddy and first time in my life i even had energy to play 2 more hours after that, because i just spent my energy to take the position and turn my hip. I hit the sweetspot almost evert shot, also a lot of winners. No pain or other problems with my shoulder though. I don't know what you guys are thinking about, also beware that i'm not on a level to give advices to people but a heavy/stable frame worked for me as a beginner/improver. A frame with high stability gives you confidence with your shots. You just don't think if the incoming ball will break your racquet or not. That's why you can concentrate on other things and play your game the way it should be.
