    THE best racquet poll-ROUND 1

    okay, i guess round 2 came too quick... ne more votes for round 1?


    I will first start with big brands... then the winning brand will get seperated into different series, then the winning series will have a final vote on the best racquet. fair enough... lets begin!

    i only included big brands...

    That's really silly, everyone is just gonna vote on their racquet. this is simply going to come down to who has the most of one racquet. so pd, nsixone, prestige, will probably be it.

    isnt that dunlop? idk...

    thats y there will be more than 1 poll to eliminate the racquets so if u vote for babolat and prince wins... u might have to re think your choices.

    but its like shoes... its based what you like but it might have some interesting results...

    May I ask, where is Volkl..? It seems popular enough... You should have included all racquet brands, and if they weren't "big enough", they wouldnt have been voted for. I cast my vote for (the non-existent) Volkl.

    And where's Fischer? Not a BIG brand but who cares about the brand. They make GOOD rackets.

    And, similar to Cuzza, I cast my vote for (the non-existent) Fischer.

    That is not fully true, my last two racquets have been a wilson and a head and before that i had a babolat. I voted for babolat because i have hit with 3 of their frames and liked them . N61 tour is to demanding therefore not my choice. Flexpoint rad tour rooted my elbow. Babolat improved my game. Here i come aeropro drive

    Get demo of what you like or wanna try, and narrow down your potential target, and get extended demo of those you really want, and pick the one you like to buy. That's all. Brand name is just the brand name, every player is different and unique.

    Well I didn't vote for the brand I use. I'm sure others will be just as fair minded. However, as you only listed brands my vote only counts towards which I think is the best brand, not the best racquet.

    Just remember, most people who vote in the poll will be American. If you're European, English or Australian then Wilson won't have quite the same relevance.
    Also, are people voting based on today's racquets or on past models from the various companies?

    I think looking at the various manufacturer's pages and seeing how many rackets they produce is a good indication of the company's size...in this case, look at volkl and dunlop.

    i think head is the best cause it has cutting edge technologies that benefit when hitting the ball but Wilson only has frames technologies that onyl make the frame harder o what ever it does!
