    Hi Guys,

    I am 16 years old 5ft 8, I am a baseline player but i like to go to the net to finish of points. I play competitively and play several times a week. I frequently hit flat but need to add more spin to my game. I am currently in the demo stage and have no clue what racket to choose as my stick as there are so many out there. I have tried many rackets.

    APDGT - Dislike
    Head Youtek Radical MP - Like but not as stable as i like.
    Pure Drive GT - Hate caused arm issues
    Blx Blade 98 - Like but not alot of power for my liking couldn't finish enough points of.
    Pure Storm Tour GT - Hated couldn't do anything with this racket seemed to heavy for me.

    I am wondering if there are any rackets you think would suit my game as i need to find one ASAP?

    Solution lies with the aero storm. I used to hit mainly flat but now I can topspin

    Hi TennisMad:
    What are you using now? What would you like to improve on your current racquet?

    It seems like from your post that you like the following attributes in your racquet:
    - Spin (racquet helps, but spin is really generated by the player not the racquet)
    - Arm Comfort
    - Net Maneuverability
    - Lower weight models (or can I say it swings lighter?)

    Do you have a preference in Brands (it seems like you put the top 3 brands down).

    I would really try to demo some racquets.

    Some of the brands and models you may want to consider in your demo list are:Yonex VCore 98 or 100, Boris Becker London, and Volkl Organix 295.

    Let us know what you like and Good Luck!

    Coolblue 123,

    Hi thanks for your reply i am currently using the babolat pure drive cortex. The attributes you listed are exacty spot on to what i want from a racket. I have come to the decision that i want the Tecnifibre Tfight 295 Vo2 Max. This racket seems right for me great mix of control and power. I also love the design of the racket which is a plus.

    The 295 grams seems to be around what you are looking for. Tecnifibres are really great racquets. I remember playtesting with the model before Vo2 max line (the one b4 the samurai pics). It was a great racquet, great feel and very arm friendly. Please tell us how you like it! Glad to hear you found a racquet.
