Are most good senior players in your area using oversized racquets?
No. Best one I know is about 55-ish, uses i.Rad MP.
Probably 60/40 oversize. Some people will never give oversize a try and always stay with what they have used.
I don't know of a senior in my area -- good player or bad player -- that DOESN'T use an oversize.
my coach whos ranked 8th on the east coast,
in the over 50 or 60 year old division,
lol i never really paid attention to that,
owns like 15 racquets that ive seen and theyr all Oversize
Most of the seniors use OS racquets around here. But most of them play doubles. If I were playing doubles exclusively I might switch to an OS racquet too
Yes, Oversize racquets should be used by seniors only.
That's the precise segment of the population they were originally designed for, in truth.
oversize users in Middle States, one playeers veiw
In the USTA Middle States section 45 & 55 players at the tournaments I played in the last few years the split seems to be 70\30 oversize.
I am talking about the doubles players. The singles guys are closer to 60\40, Oversize with there being only a few of the sub 95 inch frames being used.
I think a senior player who's 3.5 and up should have no problem hitting with a midsize, if his swing is med fast and long I'd rather shoot for a midsize.
I think some use it to feel like Agassi. 35 year old who can still hit with the young guys.
In my club a lot of seniors use the wilson n1 or n3
