The racquet thats forgiving on your joints and such. Especially if you have tennis elbow
PC600 hand down
in addition to the above, try the mfil 200. hard to swing but really soft
Max 200g, soft
From classics nothing beats the original Prestige Classic 600 and Tour, then
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).
Well the Wilson (K)six-one tour 90 is made for (K)omfort.....
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.
IMO the O3 Tour Mid Plus is great for that. I garantee.
a racquet with a really low flex rating...
i'm glad you're back from your torn shoulder and sorry that you got te. i guess the most comfortable racquet is the pro staff 6.0 85.
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.
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.
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.
Oh, yes. Now I remember that thread.
M Speed Pro by Fischer.
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.
Rossignol F200 or the Head LM Radical.
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".

Dunlop Aerogel 200 (16x19)
Dunlop Aerogel 300 (16x18)

I have had plenty of shoulder problems; I vote for
Pro Kennex Type C Redondo 98
Yea, most fischer rackets have a soft feel to them
