    From classics nothing beats the original Prestige Classic 600 and Tour, then

    POG Mid,
    Max 200G,
    PS 85.

    From the current offering I love the comfort of:

    RDX 500 Mid,
    FXP Radical MP,
    maybe Mfil 300 (the lighter frames are always more comfortable to a certain extent). :)

    There is nothing that I've used that is more comfortable than the POG Oversize.

    When I had my case of golfers elbow, this is the racket I used for a few months. Sooo comfy... Even with poly.

    Most of the heavier Prince rackets in their current line-up are also pretty arm-friendly.

    Try to stay around 12 ounces or higher with a decent size head. Find something headlight and don't go for extended length rackets.

    The outright winner in this category is the PK Type R...anybody else who has played one knows exactly what I'm talking about. The sweetest feeling racquet out there, and probably the best kept secret in underrated racquets.

    Why is the PS85 considered a comfortable racquet?
    Great racquet? Absolutely.
    Crisp feel? Absolutely.
    Comfortable, in the sense of reduced feedback to the arm and elbow? Not really.

    polaris,
    i think the reason for some in recommending the ps 6.0 85 to steven87 as being comfortable has to do with a thread initiated by him "thanking" some posters who are raving about this racquet that due to them he will not be able to fullfill his dream of becoming a pro, because he played with it and tore his shoulder. it appears that steven87 has "launched" some more threads not really seeking any serious opinions nor advice.

    steven87,
    if i'm wrong and you are serious, i want to appologize. but then we might need to know a little bit more about your gamestyle and level of play, other than that while recovering from your torn shoulder four days ago you acquired tennis elbow.

    You are correct. The crispest and most solid flexible racquet I ever tested.

    Look for stiffness.

    I certainly wouldn't classify the POG Mid as comfortable.
    Stiff like a board and uncomfortable, yes - but definitely not comfortable.

    I consider the PS 85 quite comfortable.
    The feel is not at all stiff, and it's quite crisp.
    When I first hit with it years ago, I was very pleasantly surprised.
    I used the PS 85 for 3 years, and only abandoned it because I simply couldn't figure out how to get any power on my serve with it. But the rest of my game was quite comfortable with it.

    Torn shoulder and tennis elbow..? When was it actually that you had this dream of going pro?

    But if you are serious:
    If you want comfort, I would suggest a "not to heavy" racket, with a lot of flex and with a headsize of 95" - 98".

    Fischer mSpeed Pro
