    M1210

    Head Size: 118

    Length: 27.7

    Weight: 7.9 oz.

    Retail: $250

    Tipping the scales at an airy 7.9 ounces (yes, that’s less than a can of tennis balls), the M1210 is officially the lightest racket on the market. This one’s all power and sweetspot, and should be a favorite amongst senior swatters and doubles specialists. Fischer’s Magnetic Speed System pays off when it comes to ball acceleration, and the Grip Dampening System (GDS) decreases shock at the moment of impact.

    “Seemingly lighter than air, the M1210 puts roaring reach in the palm of your hand. A poacher’s delight.”

    I can't even fathom using a racquet that light.

    One of my friends wifes bought a babolat Z Drive Lite and its also really light, but I was shanking almost every ball with it. Was kinda fun to twirl it around like a machete though.

    I had a brief hit with a friend's Wilson n1 the other day. I think that weighs about 9 ounces and has a MASSIVE HEAD SIZE. It was kind of fun to hit with it: I couldn't miss a shot and the string bed provided all the power I ever needed.
