I am returning to playing tennis after a 20+ year layoff. I grew up playing with wooden racquets and my last racquet was a metal, red Head, which I liked very much. The joints are a little older but I am still in good shape at about 6'4" and 225#. I know very little about modern racquet technology and would appreciate some suggestions on a new one. When I quit I was a decent intermediate player. I recently bought a Head Liquidmetal Radical MP because of the price and the size and feel of the racquet, but I didn't like how it played. It felt that there was very little "spring" with the ball coming off of the racquet. I don't know if that is because of the string tension or lack of flex in the racquet or both. I know my technique is very rusty and accounts for some of the problem, but my initial impression was not very favorable. Any suggestions on other racquets to try would be appreciated. I would like to stick to more less expensive ones until I see how much I start playing. Thanks.
