    I'd like to have some opinions. What, in your own honest and humble opinion, is the best racket for counterpunchers? Quick overview of the counterpuncher for those who do know know:

    So, give me your opinion. kthx

    I'd say a tight, closed string pattern for accuracy on those passing shots and a very low powered racket for control.

    Sounds like the Prestige MP to me :)

    IMO I've always found many of the Yonex sticks to fit my game well such as the RDS001mp and RDS002 Tour as they offer good weight, touch, spin and a decent sweetspot. My current favourite is a PST and Fisher Magnetic Tour when I need a little more power, a little less weight and a more forgiving racquet. I agree that a POG would also make a good choice.

    I don't think sticks such as the PD and APD are as great defensive sticks as they are attacking sticks. As always demo if you can to see what suits your game.

    I'm sure you mean the PLAYERS that endorse them don't have great defense, but can attack?
