    Because appointments with Orthopedics can be tough to get, I would suggest that you go ahead and make one now for treatment of tennis elbow. This racquet, like the HH 5.3 before it is prepackaged tennis elbow. Good luck with yours.

    I'm a teenager who uses the Hammer 5.3 MP as well. If your technique isn't sound, you'll get some nasty vibrations (even with a dampner). I experienced some bad wrist pain from so much mis hitting when I picked up about a year or so ago. But now I'm fine, Its actually a great racquet. I use Wilson Sensation.

    I use 5.3 os and like it very much - great control and power especially with Lux Alu 16. Never had any problems with my elbow and I'm almost 50.

    I bought a pair when they first came out and I liked them a lot. I could hit some wicked topspin with it and never really had problems with mishits.
