    I have always used Wilson racquets and nothing else so I am happy using them, but maybe I should try something else.

    What brand of racquet do you think is best?

    There is no best or worst among those listed.....

    ....it's all personal preference.

    VGP is correct. All about personal preference. I chose Dunlop, I used to use HEAD but than bought/tried the Dunlop M-Fil 300. I really loved the racquet, the feel, frame, paint job, etc. Great racquet!! Weight was a bit to light but, buying/adding lead tape isn't too hard. I might be sticking to dunlop for awhile.

    OP should change the purpose of this thread or else it will serve no purpose. Probably some people will come shouting "WILSON IS THE BEST!!!!" or "BABOLAT FOR LIFE" but everyone knows its all preference.

    My first 3 or so racquets were Head, right up until I tried the PD, PS, and APD. You don't get those angles anywhere else.

    True. I love hitting a running forehand crosscourt with a hard angle using a PD. But overall the pc 600 suits my game better. Just can't seem to hit that particular shot though. Tape. Every time.:(

    My 2 rackets have been Wilson, but my next one will be Yonex RDS.

    Wilson is good, but I don't know where they are better than the rest. Also Wilson has the most number of ridiculous names for their rackets.

    Agree. I played with Wilson Hyper Hammer and Head Intelligence iRadical, now play with Babolat PDR+, my next racquet - whichever will feel right for my game. But I'm gonna stick with PDR+ for a while.:cool:

    that's right it's all personal preference for the playability issues. but for built issues i would pick yonex.

    Why do you need the current offering? Go with PC 600 or LM versions, IMHO :)
