    choose head light racquets or head heavy racquets?

    they would have to be about 12 ounces so you can deal some damage.

    That would depend on how many zombies there were. HL if I think arm fatigue could be a problem!

    I would choose a PD with a c**pload of lead at the 12 position, and then wield it like Thor's Hammer to crush em down. 8)

    Killing zombies? Nah, I just stay away from shopping malls ... department stores in general.

    I thought the PD is not an arm friendly racquet - after a dozen or so zombies you would start feeling some pain in the elbow/shoulder. I say POG OS. Headlight, yes, but the tremendous racquet head speed would get the job done, and the graphite lends itself greater number of zombies killed per racquet.

    A 15oz+ racquet about 20-30 points head light. May not deal the same damage a head heavy racquet can with one blow, but it would be fun going Bruce Lee on
    them with fast combo hits. :)

    I would use a Babolat so that if it were to break, I wouldnt feel bad about breaking a racquet.

    i dunno if i'd go with gut. Gut would break..and then you'd be in a world of trouble. I would go with luxilon. It might be a little harsh, but if you go straight down you'd be okay.

    I would definately take a head light racquet.. The faster you can swing the better.. More hits you can hit before they hit you.. Just like comparing a stick vs. baseball bat.. I would rather have the stick since it is lighter and could hit them faster.

    I would modify a racquet like a T2000 and weld some spikes in the head and string it with barbwire. A wood or graphite racquet would probably crack after a couple of hits :)

    Also I would extend the length of the racquet so I could hit with 2 hands off both sides and not lose any reach :p

    Or you could get two kids racquets, string them together, and you've got nunchucks.

    i'd take a head heavy that has a 26.5 inch balance. just twirl around and let swingweight do its magic! better yet, lets make it 30" extended made of solid ncode. oh and lets make it aerodynamic w/ babolat style frame. lets see what else...hmmm.....



    lol yeah, but the stick has so little mass.....it has to have a blade to be any good. gotta clob them to death. no cutting.

    If you're going to weld spikes and stuff to it...why not just attach a flamethrower for crying out loud.


    Be realistic here! (lol)

    Babolat Aero Tour Plus. 671 grams of weight at the tip. Oh, yes.. 1000g, 65 pts HH, 2510 SW... You guys hit with your piddly little racquets. This sucker hits a zombie in the head, at even a measly 2 m/s^2, that's 5020 newtons force on that undead little skull of his. That's what I call a hammer. With the funny shape for aerodynamics-- as little speed loss as possible, because bugger it'll be hard to keep swinging one-handed. I'd probably switch to a two-hander for that one.

    EDIT:

    to AJK1, should you read this: Where is your feel now?? ;)
