    What do you think is the best serving racquet ever while giving resonable control?

    Prestige Classic 600 was pretty awesome at serving: Power, placement, spin. Just splendid.

    Edit:
    A great serving racquet for just getting it into the box with awesome pace+spin was the TT Warrior Mid+. Too bad it wasn't for me on anything else though

    Without a doubt, the nCode n6.1 95 is by far the best racket I have ever used to serve. I only had to hit 3 serves with it to figure that one out...

    i.Prestige XL - The extra length was really helpful. If my returns didn't suffer so much I would have switched to it.

    i'd say the best serving racquet is teh ncode 6-1 tour 90 as you can really feel where you are serving and you can place your ball very well and still have alot of power to hit an ace

    TFight325 is pretty good from amongst recent rackets.

    Any variation of the Wilson PS 6.1 95 , but IMHO the Prince Thunderbolt wins but everything else suffers.

    Personally, I've always served best with a PS 85. The nCode Tour 90 and Prestige Classic are not far behind. Virtually any hefty stick is going to be great on serve and whichever suits you best will be down to individual taste.

    nCode 61 95 16x18. Amazing pop and spin. Very fun to serve with.

    Have to agree.The LM Prestige Mid is the best racquet I've served with. And I've tried a large number.

    nSixOne 95 16x18, you can hit relatively flat or not but the ball is always very heavy and has very *weird* rebound.
    Spinny serves are incredible due to its plow through combined with open stringbed.

    PS 6.0 85. Great feel, power, and placement on serves. There's a good reason why Sampras was one of the greatest servers in history.

    I think Pro Staffs in general have a little edge, this because the throat is higher than normal racquets (very high with the 85) and thus raises the center of percussion and give an hard and stiffy punch.
