    Title says it all. What length of racquet do you like to play with?




    Secondary Edit/Question. Are taller players better suited with longer racquets?

    While learning I used a 28 inch Volkl VX1 for about 8 years till both racquets died. Monster serves. Switched to a 27 inch O3 tour last year, worked very well for my groundstrokes but my serves were terrible with it. So I switched to a 27.5 inch Head Instinct XL recently just for experimentation and I actually like it. I don't really hit my groundstrokes as well as with the O3 tour but close enough and I still could serve massive bombs with it. Biggest problem really was I can't seem to hit the 2nd serve consistently with a 27 inch. I think learning with a 28 inch made 27 inch too short for me cause I would get horrible blisters in the middle of my palm with a 27 inch racquet. Too much of my hand was flying off of the 27 inch racquets. Only wish there were more 27.5 - 28 inch player oriented racquets that aren't oversized.

    The hot chick and your liking me are both results of the same fact, that I am awesome.

    27-maneuvrability for s and v. i could sure use the height advantage (i'm 5 feet 4 inches) but .5 inches isn't much to me.
