    I play louisiana 14s i serve big hit big shots what racquet should i get? I've been using a Prince Shark since it came out in 04 and want a new racquet ( should be at least 11oz) i am probably going to weight customize it. What suggestions do you have?

    hmm im 14 as well and hit big. I use 03 tour, but previouly used apd and pd+ both immense, Ncode n61 95 is also immense and ive recently got a Yonex Super RD Tour 90 (hewitts racquet) and so far it seems immense.

    I'd look for something which would add control to my power game, something which would make me more versatile.

    I'd say look at 6.1 90 (best if S/V) or 95 (18x20), FP/LM Prestige (if mostly baseliner), O3 Tour.

    FIRST OF ALL, what's your type of game? Saying you hit big shots doesn't help much in terms of style. What did you like about your Shark, and what did you not like about it? What weight are you looking to customize to?

    By the way the O3 and the APD feel way different. O3 feels much bouncier where as the APD feels boardy.
