    I'm going to demo racquets tomorrow morning in Chicago.
    I'm in the market for a new racquet with all the racquets out there what would fit me best?

    My game is as follows...
    ~4.0 NTRP Rating
    Long Swing Motion
    Two-Handed Backhand, pretty consistent
    Semi-Western Forehand, my best shot, with power and hefty spin

    I feel most comfortable from the baseline, but occasionaly will volley. I usually use beat my opponent by waiting for an opportunity that either I cause or they give to me, and I don't go for winners straight off the bat. I can usually beat my players with my good athletisicm, or taking advantage or their bad athletiscism.

    Any suggestions? THANKS!

    he said that he was already pretty consistant, and has good athletisism, so i wouldn't go with arm friendly racquets, which are mostly for people who aren't consistent enough.

    I would go with a more player's racquet and start going into the shots more, for winners and etc. Redondo would probably be a good racquet, and try out a TFight too, i think theres a dealer down there (I'm pretty sure the rep is)

    YO! You're saying players' rackets aren't arm friendly? Are you kidding?

    And would you want to use somthing that'll kill your arm, and eventually your tennis?

    The Redondo is very arm friendly AND is a serious-game racket (I hate to use the term 'players' racket, though) that any level can play. This seems to contradict what you mentioned above about arm-friendliness and consistency of play.
