Hey Buddy. You may remember that as a sufferer of TE I went on a mad spree of buying racquet after racquet in a sort of quest to find the holy one. I started at Babolat, went through Prince, Yonex RDS 003, Head Protector (yucky thing to play with) and have finally ended up with.. Wilson Ncode tour 2. Stiffeness rating of 62, probably the lowest of any racquet I have used over the last year and it is mighty easy on the arm, with no pain on contact on either stroke, virtually no pain afterwards, more of a dull ache for a few hours. Fantastic racquet, plays extremely well, swings great, solid contact and no vibrations. BUT I have also had a coaching lesson once a week and without a doubt this has really helped. I reckon technique is the most important thing to concentrate on if you are starting to get TE or coming back from it. Hope you are recovering a bit more than you were last time I posted. If only I had spent the money I have wasted on racquets on coaching then I might have got better a lot quicker, still you live and learn.
