When I first got back into this sport early last year, I started off using a late 90’s Prince Alloy oversize racquet. It weighed in about 350g and had a 107sq head. Not really having much knowledge of racquets at that time, I was aware the racquet felt a bit heavy after a long game, but didn’t think a great deal about it. It was only when I started looking at getting a new racquet that I saw all these different head sizes and weights and I will admit it confused the hell out of me. Unfortunately, where I live in the UK there aren’t any places that I can demo racquets and so it was a case of getting one I thought would be ok. I ended up with a 300g Prince racquet with a 100sq head and to be honest, it’s been fine. However, I have noticed that due to its weight, I don’t seem to have great stability when volleying a hard hit ball and I am having to swing the racquet quite hard and fast to generate sufficient power, and….as is the case with my golf swing….the harder I try to hit the ball, the less control I have. This is where I start to question whether I should go heavier and what benefit I will get by going to something like 330-340g? Also, the large head isn’t a desperate requirement, one of my old racquets had an 80sq head and before that I used woods. I do also try and play regularly and I do weight training, so arm strength isn’t an issue either. I would say my game is not one of thrashing baseline rallies. I do like to mix it up and due to my low boredom threshold I will cover most areas of the court and do like to volley. My game is certainly one of ball placement rather than brute force. So….this is where I need your feedback and any experiences you have had that are similar to mine. I think I should start looking for a 330-340g racquet with a 90-95sq head, what are your thoughts and suggestions on what I should look to get? Many thanks for reading this.
