    Take that BP!!! :p

    This is a club for all those 1hfh and 1hbh players to hang out. Whatever size racquet, if you can wield it that way .... welcome.

    BTW - I play mostly with the Volkl Tour 10 V Engine Mid. However willing to test drive most racquets.

    But shouldn't this thread go in the "Tennis Tips/Instruction? forum? As you stated yourself, it has nothing to do with racquets. Just as long as you use the same one-handed strokes.

    It certainly sounds like to me that your OP says that the racquet doesn't matter:

    It is a 95. Yea, I have tried mids and pretty much all of my shots have tons more spin and control (slightly less power, except on the serve) so I was thinking of changing over to a 90. Though I just have to find the right one (thinking about the AG 100). The volkl C10 pro also hits very nice backhands (98 sq in).

    Edit: just noticed you have the C10, I thought it hit very nice backhands.

    it hits very nice but doesn't give the heat like the T10V Mid. i thought the C10 would be stiffer than the T10V due to TW specs but it doesn't feel that way. it still is a nice hit for practice but for serious comp i go with the T10V.

    I understand the 1hbh club but...don't 99.9% of tennis players use a 1hfh?

    Anyways...I use a 1hbh, mostly topsin but also slice when I get in trouble, and I play with the new Babolat Pure Storm Tour

    I tried going over to the darkside and made a concerted effort to develop and two-handed bh. However the results were literally all over the place. Sticking to the one-hander. FXP Prestige mid.

    LOVE IT!

    This thread stays, PERIOD! IT IS ABOUT RACQUETS!

    I use the 1 HbH and 1 HfH and 1 Hservice and 1HJerkoff.

    All done with the Nblade OS. Soft stable and explosive. The touch and feel on the last stroke is always the most intense.

    1HBH here. Use mostly Mid racquets (Prestige/AG100/Redondo).

    Don't notice any difference in difficulty if I decide to use a Mid+ or OS, regardless of beam width.
