    Greetings,
    I'd like to find a racket that is the equivalent of Prince Thunderstrike 27" 110sq. in.

    That racket was very stiff and high hits were very solid. I haven't played much in several years and am now returning to the game and would like to find a racket along those lines.
    Prince said the Shark Turbo 110 but after hitting with that it's not near as stiff and the sweet spot seems low. High hits are not smooth (I tend to live up there).

    All help appreciated!

    Rick

    Prince made a racket in 2004 called the Thunder Rip. It's a 78 RDC stiffness racket, as high as I've seen. I have the 1999 equivalent, called the Triple Threat Rip, and you can hit as close as a couple of inches from the tip of the frame and still get good ball accuracy.

    Be sure your arm is okay though. Even though the ball goes about where you want it to, you'll get quite a jolt through the racket unless you weigh it down.
