    I'm a baseliner playing with the Head MicroGEL Radical racquet (2 pts head light). I recently picked up my friend's Wilson K Factor KSix-One 95 (18x20) racquet (8 pts head light) and it felt very good on ground strokes.

    Is it technically wrong for me to like a very head light racquet if I'm a baseliner?

    Much Thanks,

    WimpLo

    allot of base liners use head light racquets because they offer good variety. you can be agressive and defensive and volley better and serve better. unless you are a weirdo and like head heavy racquets which some peopel like.

    There are many quite headlight racquets for baseliners

    The OFFICIAL (whatever that means) description of the baseliner racket is a 12 ounce OS that's about even.

    In reality, nobody really cares. Use whatever the heck suits you. Some of my baseliner friends (and they're about 4.0) use game improvement rackets like the LM 8. Others use Flexpoints Radicals. Still others use Hyper Prostaff 6.1's. It just depends on what suits you.
