    Hello everybody.

    I had had a surgery in my shoulder 3 years ago, but continued playing with Prestige raquets. A year ago I bought 2 FXP Radical, no pain in my shoulder, but the problem was that I never felt the security and precision of Prestige on it, so decided to buy 2 FXP Prestige MP 2 months ago. Now I am suffering with some pain in my shoulder sometimes (when I play 2 or 3 days in a row)

    The question is: Should I try again a Radical (Microgel possibly) or should I try other raquect (i.e.: Bab APDC)

    I am a left handed player, strong drive and 1 bh.

    what strings are you using, and how long have you kept those strings on your racquet? there could be other factors in this.

    I am using polyplasma and is a 2 weeks string job. I was thinking about strings, perhaps a power string would be good ? Thanks

    maybe you have dead polys, or maybe it's too stiff for you. either reason could be it. Try using natural gut to heal your shoulder, or a softer poly like Pro Supex Big Ace.

    Anything heavy and flexible. Nat gut helps too.

    shoulder injury and like stiff head brand racquets, you must like pain? You want to hear about pain? let me tell you about the "limited edition" radicals...

    Pro Kennex 5G is a great racquet. I'd demo one of them. IMHO

    From what I know the sholuder problem comes mostly from serve motion. Try to throw the ball more forward and less to the left (for a right hander).
