    Hi Guys,

    I'm 5 feet 857⁄64 inches tall 18 years old and I've used my racquet for around two years. Is it time to switch? My current racquet is the Wilson Ncode Nflash. Specs: Tension - 50-60lbs, Length - 27.25 IN, Weight - 9.2 Oz, Headsize - 103 SQ IN, Balance - 12pts H, Pattern - 16 X 20, SI - 6.0, Strings - MICRO-DRY CRIPS & NXT Strings.

    Should I go heavier? What racquets do you recommend? I think I'm progessing to be an all rounder my baseline play could be better.

    Thanks

    I've basically narrowed my options down to three racquets.

    9oz and 12points headheavy? How have you not hurt yourself

    Get something around 11oz and 100" headsize. Watch the stiffness

    What level are you playing at? I think I missed it, that will really help to decide.

    Honestly, the Juice PRO seems right up your alley. It's a bit softer, similar length to what you are using, and lot heavier with a ton more stability.

    Just my 2 cents. It's too bad you're narrowed down to those three already. There are a few other rackets I would recommend over those in a heart beat. :)

    Thanks for the information. Yeah I think it might have caused some trouble my arm is kind of hurting so I'm resting it. Just some soreness.

    Thanks for the post. Well since I'm in Australia and there is a rating system trust me but I haven't been through it and well I gave you as much info as I thought would be useful since I don't really have a rating so its kind of hard to you know give false information and talk about something you don't know.

    PLEASE TELL ME YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS! As I said in my first post recommendations are helpful and well to tell you the truth the selection was just from looking at specs I haven't even gone to a pro shop to let them help yet so keep the recommendations coming. That's what I should've told everyone who voted to do tell me why?

    Thanks so much

    Hello everyone,

    To ALL voters who vote in the poll if it is not too much trouble please post a reason as to why you vote for a particular racquet.

    It would be very much appreciated thanks.

    Fuji according to the Experienced Players Guidelines. A Highschool player may not self rate himeself below 3.0. However I think maybe I leaning towards being 3.5.

    High school tennis athlete may not self-rate below 3.0 and will be higher if they participated in post season play.

    This player has achieved
    improved stroke
    dependability with
    directional control on
    moderate shots, but still
    lacks depth and variety.
    This player exhibits more
    aggressive net play, has
    improved court coverage,
    and is developing
    teamwork in doubles.

    I definitely think I'm not up to 4.0 yet but with work maybe.

    I would suggest the BLX Prostaff 6.1 100, reason why is because 9.2oz to 11oz + might be a big hop for you to adjust to. Even the BLX Prostaff 6.1 100 is a major thing to adjust to. I would suggest the Dunlop Biomimetic 600 Lite or Head Youtek IG Radical S. I'm guessing your only sticking to wilsons based on your choices there, but these are always an option.

    Okay! :) I'm just going to recycle a post I made a few months ago that is my general recommendations to any player within 3.5-5.0! A few people have found it helpful...

    Depending on your price range....

    Higher End of the Price range:

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Babolat_AeroPro_Drive_GT/descpageRCBAB-BAPDGT.html

    It's actually quite a solid racket, offers plenty of spin and great for baseliners. The only thing is the price, and it is a bit stiff at 70 points.

    Medium Range:

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/ProKennex_Kinetic_Pro_5G_Classic_Racquets/descpageRCPK-P5G2.html

    It's got a good head size, good amount of power, good on the arm, and it's just an all around good racket. It's comfortable and great for both baseliners and net players.

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Boris_Becker_Delta_Core_London/descpageRCVOLKL-BBDCL.html

    The Boris Becker London. I've only hit with this frame a few times, and there are a few people that are EXPERTS on this frame. It's for sure a jack of all trades, and quite comfortable to hit with. If you do a quick search, there is tons of info on this frame.

    Lowest Price: (AKA Best deals)

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Dunlop_Aerogel_4D_300_3Hundred/descpageRCDUNLOP-D4D3T.html

    Dunlop 300 series! It's not overly heavy, useful for any type of game, and you can use it for a LONG time before you'll outgrow it. It doesn't offer as much power as the others, but you can really swing hard and it will keep the ball in.

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Head_MicroGEL_Radical_Midplus/descpageRCHEAD-HMGRAD.html

    Head MicroGel Radical MidPlus. I can recommend this frame to almost ANY player, and they will enjoy it. It is basically the frame that literally any player can play with and grow with. It's one of my favorite all time frames, and it helps avoid any elbow problems. I cannot recommend this frame enough.

    Now I saw that you like Wilson frames, here are a few I could recommend...

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Wilson_K_Factor_Kobra_Team_FX/descpageRCWILSON-KOBTM.html

    Kobra Team FX: My lady actually just switched to it, and I hit with it a few times. It's such a comfortable hit, and it's got a fair bit of power behind it's shots. I really enjoy this Wilson. Plus the price is excellent.

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Wilson_K_Factor_KBlade_98/descpageRCWILSON-KBLD98.html#spec

    K Blade 98: A great frame, but a bit on the stiffer end of the spectrum! It's really good for baseliners, and it's got a fair bit of power. The BLX Blade is a bit more "firm." I much preferred the K Blade 98.

    If you have any questions on any of this, just let me know! I know it's a lot to take in, but I showed you the whole spectrum of frames really. (Different stiffness', but all around 100 square inches which is solid, and all around 11.0oz which is a solid weight which can be customized later!)

    -Fuji

    EDIT: I'd also like to add the Prince EXO3 Tour 100, in either string pattern. It's a sweet stick that's ultra plush and loaded with control. Great for baseliners, but not the best feel for the net. The comfort really can't be beat however.

    would suggest? do you mean wouldn't suggest its a bit confusing but I do see what you mean. Hm well idk I'm just seeing what others think in the end its up to me and I might stick with my current racquet. However some people think its too light.

    I like Wilson as I have basically used the brand all my life with some exceptions and I like the quality of their racquets. However I am open to any suggestions. In the end it will be my choice, but a variety of suggestions will help me to best choose the racquet that is right for me that's why I posted this thread and was a bit dissapointed when I had no posts after two days. Guess I'm impatient. I would like any racquet recommended to have similar specs to my current model with perhaps a smaller headsize. Also bear in mind I recently have developed some arm problems. :confused: :cry:

    You should give the Wilson BLX Blade Team a shot it is light but much softer than your current racquet, should help with the arm soreness and is a solid racquet.

    Quality of their racquets? If you love quality give Yonex a try. Wilson have terrible quality control, but decent quality (no cracks and stuff).

    You should try Wilson Tour, Pro Open. Go for BLX's with the price drops since you would be changing to a heavier racquet yet again when you improve/get stronger.

    Ok well about the 5 foot thing I kind of just inputted 175 cm into Google and made it convert into feet so... idk man but I'm around 1m 75cm so yeah um... its hard because most of you guys live in the US and I only sometimes see people here that live in Australia and maybe not even in Victoria.

    By the Wilson Tour do you mean like e.g. nTour and [K]Tour because with BLX I think the Tour is now the Juice and Steam lines. Oh and the BLX are dropping over here right now so yeah. I mean I do have a racquet already but I don't really have a backup and so this is what the thread is about.

    All of my racket suggestions, minus the APDGT are Arm savers! :) Pro Kennix and even Dunlop are famous for comfort. The MG Radical MP Is super comfy and arm friendly with a low flex, and it's a bit smaller head size to grow in to! :)

    Try to demo. The Juice and Steam are now expensive as crap while the old BLX's are like $129. The Tour as in the blue and orange one and the BLX Pro Open (which is just like a pure drive).

    Maybe you could pick up a 100S or Ezone 100 ($170 and $149). The Exo3 Tour is really expensive at ($229).

    You should drop your current racquet and pick one of the suggested ones, lighter racquets to seem to be harder on the arm.

    Hi Chyeaah,

    Hm are those prices in aussie dollars? Oh really well as long as I can play well with it and it doesn't put any more stress on my arm. What's the swingweight I wonder...?

    Most of the old BLX is discounted. :D I will see what happens maybe I should print this page out and take it with me to the store so I don't forget or write the racquets down somewhere.

    Check out top serve tennis website they have decent prices on old blxs and their prices on aeropros aren't to bad considering you can't buy babolats to get delivered overseas from tw.

    i said O.P... Read.

    If you know where to get your stuff and know the discounts you can get it the same price as on TWU

    The trick in Aus is to never get the new racquets since they never have discounts on them. Get the older ones, that still play very well for 70-100 dollars less. The new racquets aren't worth it unless your a racquet freak, their just the old racquets with amplifeel (useless) and new paintjobs.

    Hi Fed6.1,

    Haha yeah see waht happens joining the people with the PS line. Idk somehow when I looked at the racquet I was like omg I got to have it due to the boxbeam and sick pj! But logic says don't go there for a while until you get better although everyone seems to like it judging by the poll results. :D

    I'll PM you the results IF I get it. I'll demo it and tell you what I think ok?

    the 100 is terrible if you go PS try 95. the 100 beam is too fat for a pro staff. Imo the 95 would be the best pro staff, since its user friendly because they reduced the weight and it has a nice thin 17mm beam which cuts through the air so fast.

    I recommend the VCore 100S (i always do when they look for a PD clone) but in your case, its perfect. Although theres a lack of stability when vsing 4.5 hardhitters or above it is perfectly stable at 4.0 level. And even when you get to 4.5 you can just lead it up 10 grams or so since the SW is so light at 306.

    the 100S has a massive sweetspot which you rarely miss, its pretty light, at 312 grams and 306 SW and it is very very stable for its weight. The people who keep complaining about it's lack of stability, any 312 gram stick won't be as stable as this one. It's pretty powerful, depending on what you string it with. When you hit with the racquet it feels like your connected to the ball, you can get excellent feel and touch of the ball. The only downside of this racquet is the weight, which isn't an issue since you can lead it up and you don't need that extra weight anyways.

    Hm ok well I too like that Roddick85 guy really haven't gone for such a small headsize but I guess making the switch should be ok I mean you have to do it if you want to improve. Hm so a 19mm/20mm/22mm width beam is too fat for a pro staff. I see.

    Still I wonder if I can handle the weight/SW of the 95?

    Oh stop being lazy and demo it yourself or read the TW review. Demoing in Australia is hard. There are hardly any free courts and court hire is around $16 an hour for good courts. Ball Machine hire is way more expensive. And you only get 1 week with the racquet for demo.

    Wtf? What is your problem. I don't live in the city and we dont have a tennis shop so I can't just demo racquets and by the way where I live I can just play for free on plexi cushion courts so sucked in! I was just asking what the racquet is like if you have played with it.

    Theres only like a handful of shops in Australia where you can demo. If you live in America you should be able to demo with free shipping from TW. He obviously hasn't demoed it because if he has he would have stated that he has. At least you don't need to pay for court hire.

    OH. OH. Sorry.

    While i was getting my racquet restrung ive swung it. It swung really fast like a pure storm so i didnt bother demoing, My timing would be completely off. Theres only like 2 shops good in sydney where you can demo the latest racquets.

    That's alright mate sorry about the comments before. Are you currently using a vcore 100s? because I'm really interested in this racquet. How does it play compared to a pure drive and aeropro?

    I can't be screwed writing a full review and posting it on here. Maybe tomorrow when it rains.

    You can't really compare the 100S to an APD. The APD cuts through the air noticeably faster than the 100S. The APD is higher powered, good on groundstrokes if you hit with tons of spin. the APD sucks when you try to flatten out the shots unless you hit right in the middle of the sweetspot, and has a lack of touch and feel.

    The 100S does way better the APD lacks and is just abit below what the APD is sucessful in.

    The 100S is low powered, has tiny bit less spin, thats because the APD whips faster through the air. The 100S is slightly worse than the APD on spinning groundstrokes, just a tinybit because the APD you can swing faster = more spin. But what i find is that there is a bigger sweetspot on the 100S and you can really pound back a 2HBH faster than the APD since there is more control. But the 100S makes up for it since you can easily flatten out your shots.

    The 100S has more control than the APD. 100000x better feel and touch and the flat serves are better, faster and easy to aim for the corners. The kick serves are better on the APD, but the 100S give better accuracy

    I don't like to volley unless there is an obvious putaway but the 100S allows me to volley and control the volley when i do, it is really maneuverable.

    The only downside is that im feeling the lack of stablility in the 100S which i can make up for with my usual lead setup.

    IMO, APD is only good for baseline grinding. The 100S is not only good for baseline grinding but you can come closer in and pound that flat putaway shot

    Hi Chyeaah,

    Oh I didn't notice you live in Sydney. Hm maybe next time I go up we can hit. Sigh idk about the NTPR ratings but it seems like I'm at least 3.5-4.0. Ah I see it would be perfect just have to demo it. Will look at the reviews on TW. You know there's a TW australia but I don't think it's the same TW as the US. Anyway back to topic the 100S is a Yonex right? Still hope my store has it in stock. Go my current racquet from there. It seems you and Fed6.1 had a major misunderstanding there.

    So either old BLX, PS95BLX, 100S, Babolat, or any of Fuji's recommendations. Hm I wonder where he went?

    btw with courts I play for school. So I will be taking the demos with me to school training and hopefully Sport lessons which in Yr 12 you basically get to do free training and that means hit up with partner or hog a court and practise serving. :D

    -Tezuka

    P.S. Any reviews will be posted up on this forum usual format seperate post. Btw Jo11y's review on the PS90BLX was quite good.

    Oh nice! Hm yeah well in the end we'll see but I do hope I get over my elbow problem so I can test out racquets without them having to be arm friendly.

    Don't try the 95 its too much of a difference in head size.

    I would rate these sticks

    1 - Yonex V-Core 100S. This allows you to grind the baseline as well or better as the other sticks without suffering from the flaws of the other sticks such as feel, touch, volleys. The only downside is that it lacks stability at higher levels such as 4.5 +. It feels very solid. It's got the biggest sweet spot compared to the other sticks I've mentioned. Its got the best control of all the sticks I've named, it probably has the best control of all the open patterns without lacking spin. Although you might find a lack of power with an full poly setup so you should either lead this up a wee bit or use a hybrid.

    2 - BLX Pro Open - Better at what the Pure Drive lacks in, just a wee bit under par at what the Pure Drive succeeds in. The Jack of All Trades, its got a very decent feel kind of muted.


    3 - Pure Drive (only if the 2012 version doesn't feel hollow)

    The old one feels hollow, not solid. Just hated the feel of it.

    4 - Aero Pro Drive

    Can't flatten out shots properly, you'll have to be playing like nadal doing super topspin shots until you create room for a topspin winner. If you want to flatten out the shot you have to hit the middle of the somewhat small sweetspot.


    Check your e-mail i sent you where you probably could get the cheapest prices in Vic.

    Hi Chyeaah,

    Thanks this is great. Now can you recommend some hybrid strings? I haven't really tampered with racquet strings they have all been factory strung and I have played with them for two years going for a string job soon. Hopefully before school starts up again.

    We'll see what the people at the pro shop say and then I'll ask them if they have the 100S in store or not and we'll see from there but probs sticking with the BLX Pro Open, well I'll just demo them both and see which one feels better. :D

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for helping me with this selection of racquets for demos. Maybe I should've titled this better. Anyway the racquets chosen are:

    1. Yonex V-Core 100S
    2. Wilson BLX Pro Open
    3. Head MicroGel Radical MidPlus

    These are the three I think I will demo others that I might demo are - The Boris Becker London.

    It does look like you never played with right setup, therefore this could be convenient: Head MicroGEL Radical Midplus (Funny, but you have it in your list already )

    The following is a little bit more advanced (probably you are not ready for it so far): Head YOUTEK Speed Pro

    Both racquets are great and available for unbeatable price.

    About Boris Baker racquets - I love them and used to play for years but it seems like BB is not reliable as other brands.
    The handle on one of my just recently has fallen apart.
