Hi All I'm a long time reader/lurker of these forums, and have gained valuable insight over the last few years by reading many of the intelligent conversation found here. Although I like to research my racquet purchases, I currently have a situation that requires knowledge far greater than my own basic understanding of racquet technology. So, here goes ... I have been playing regularly for around 5 years, quite seriously for the last few years (UK club player, I play in doubles teams during the season), and am probably around the 3.5 - 4.0 level. My current racquet is a Wilson nBlade 98. About half way through last season, I developed a painful wrist condition. It appeared to be a mixture of tendonitis and tenosynivitus, and actually forced me to stop playing because of the pain. The main pain comes on striking the ball on my forehand, and seems to be caused by the impact. I try to play with topspin on my forehand as much as possible, so possibly/probably some of the pain may be due to poor technique. However, I never experienced the pain before, and 4-5 months after switching to the nBlade is when the problem started. I was playing with a Wilson Hyper Hammer 5.2 (n/kTour predecessor) before, and never had this problem. After taking a 6 month break (and seeing a specialist who couldn't diagnose any problem), I decided to get back to playing regularly again. Whilst the problem didn't affect me the first few times, one month later it is starting to become an issue again. So (to get to the point!) it seems to me that the racquet may be the problem, because very flexible, it has quite a heavy swingweight, and an even balance. Whilst I'm happy to get a racquet that helps the wrist problem to the detriment of my game, it would be great if I could find a racquet that would be useable straight away. Generally the nBlade is slightly underpowered for my game, especially on the serve. I often find my whole arm aches after playing, as I really have to 'whack' the ball to get it going. However, I find it perfect in most areas for my game, such as the level of control, and 'touch' it offers. So I think I need a racquet which is pretty flexible, quite head-light and a shade lighter on either the weight or swingweight. Does this sound about right? Should I definitely be looking to change? I have looked into this a bit and have identified the kPro Tour and the nTour-Two/kTour (though not very HL) as possible candidates. After having a few Wilson racquets, I like the feel of them, so I have really only looked within their range so far, but I'm not set on that. I would really appreciate any thoughts or suggestions that you may have. Thanks in advance! Ps. Sorry for such a long post! D.
