i would like to know what kind of racquet is good for a guy like me who muscles the ball when he hits. what i mean is, my arm tenses up, and i have to do this in order to produce speed on my swing. i had this problem with basketball as well, i was a great dribbler, but the speed of my dribbles came from muscling the dribble, rather than the smoothnes of it. i use a LM radical, and the only way i can get the ball in, is if i use a western grip, and it works fine, my game is comming along great(thank God), but i also used this other guy's racquet who's is an old 80's graphite type racquet, and with that racquet i can hit flatter balls, much much much more consistant. so i thought about trying to buy an old racquet. why do you think?
