I bought this racquet about 14 years ago for the one season of competitive tennis I've played in the last 25 years. I was still in my late 20s, could generate lots of power and tennis elbow was something old people had to worry about. Coming back to the game last year in my early 40s after over a decade off I found that the lightness (290g strung) and extra length were a lot of hard work and caused my arm some grief. So I've tried a few newer racquets and have settled on the new Head Speed Pro which I can still string with poly at lower tensions and has enough weight that I don't feel like it is being pushed around. But I just love the feel of these old Head constant beam frames and don't really want this to just sit in my bag never to be used again. So does anyone know the best way to reduce the length, add some more weight and make it more playable?
