    How do you train for faster racquet head speed on serve when you are using a heavy racquet like PS 6.0 85?

    Lots of practice. Some weight training. Lots of flexibility exercises. The rest is the genes.

    when i use a heavier raquet i find i really have to include a good knee bend on the serve to generate enough raquet head speed.

    also you might want to try the luxicon big banger grey strings.

    Relaxed arm, relaxed grip..... full take back to "hammer" position for full rotation / racket head speed once you throw the racket down.
