    Hey, I was wondering how many of you guys use 2 handed back hands with racquets that are smaller than 93sqin. I currently use the POG Mid but I'm curious to try the ps85. I can hit one handed backhands but not very confidently in matchplay.

    You never know until you try. Just try it and it might work. There are 2 handed players who used the ps85 like Courier, Evert, and Pierce

    Yeah I use the POG mid. I find myself slicing one handed a lot lately, could be the racquet could just be my 2hbh confidence is low..

    And me! :eek: I played my best 2HBH with a PS85. Pitty that my TE does not like the heft of the stick and I had to switch to an Asian Ncode 90. After 6 months I'm still struggling to regain the same level of play as before.

    i use a 2HBH with all the rackets in my sig. besides their unique feel and headshape, yonex rackets also have very long pallets which makes it much easier to grip 2hbhs, whether your hands are separated or close togehter.

    I use a 2hbh with my Ultra 2, which is 85 sq in. Works like a dream. I actually prefer the smaller U2 for my 2hbh to the nCode Tour 90.

    I hit 2-handed BH with RDX 500 Mid, 90 sq.in. I always have hit two-handers, even with my first racquets which were even smaller.

    Actually, I don't understand why you should use larger headsize with 2 HBH than with 1 HBH? Does it mean that with 2 HBH you are supposed to miss the sweetspot more often, and why is that :confused:
