Discussion in 'Racquets' started by Pushmaster, Apr 14, 2004.
I was wondering which players stick has the best, but not necessarily the biggest sweetspot?
ps 6.0 85.
I vote for the PBP, I haven't tried that many racquets, but this one wins hands down for me.
If you consider the Warrior to be a player´s frame, i´ll vote for the Prince!!
Re: Which players racquet has the "sweetest" sweet
I'm not trying to be argumentative, but I don't really even know what that means. If there was a racquet with the "best" sweetspot everyone would be using it. Almost every quality of a racquet is subjective. What is "best" for you, may be the "worst" for someone else.
Wilson PS 6.0 95 and 85, Dunlop Max200G, Head Prestige w/ suspension grip.
Volkl C10/Tour 10 MP
Pure Control Standard (older Frame)
Obviously, none of these guys have hit with a wood racket lately. While the sweetspot is smaller, you get a much better "feel" with wood than you do with ANY graphite/kevlar/fiberglass frame.
6.0 95, my god, its like liquid chocolate when you hit it. When you hit anywhere else on the frame,however, it aint quite so pleasant....
my votes would be for the prostaff 6.0 85 si, estusa power beam pro, pro kennex laver type-c(very underated racquet), or the yonex rd ti-70.
6.0 85, once you hit the sweetspot, which is once in a blue moon, nothing compares to it, you won't feel a thing.
Head Trysis 300/270 660cm2, once you find the sweetest centre of the sweetspot it is so free of tension and so hot that any other racquet and string feels like counting dimples on a golfball through latex gloves. Even the 600 does not compare.
6.0 85, 95 and tour 95
What Steve Huff said. Nothing compares to a wood frame.
Of the composite frames, the two that come to mind are both very different but equally amazing. The PS 6.0 and the Rossignol F200. Hit either one of these in the sweetspot and you need to be dragged off the court.
I'm with Rabbit on this one --- Volkl C-10 Pro or Tour 10 MP.
I've not tried the Tour 10, but the C10 Pro does indeed produce a sublime feeling when you strike the ball in its (large) sweetspot.
prestige 600 or prestige tour or prestige trisys or prestige classic, basically any head prestige ever made.
Fischer VT98 Pro, Pro Extreme FT or Dunlop MW200G
My apologies for my short memory. I stand corrected. Steve is right as the mail on this one. Last summer, when centering a ball with the Vilas it felt as right as the mail.
yonex mp tour 90, this racket makes you forget you even have a racket in your hands. i also liked the tour 90 but the head light frame was not suited to my two handed backhand.
Good old Pro Staff 85. Nothing has matched the feeling of a great clean hit with it. I have tried most player's racquets on the market and the old Wilson takes the cake.
It comes with a price (heft, great mechanics and great shape). Some people may argue if this is all hype, but I don't think so. This racquet will let you know if you hit the sweet spot on every single shot - but I don't see much middle ground on it. TW review was amazing.
Thanks guys for your picks. Of the racquets I've played with I would pick the HPS 6.1, and C10 Pro, but alot of the sticks that are mentioned here I havn't had the pleasure of hitting with yet. I'm going to order the PPB, I just have a hunch about this stick. Hopefully it will have the "sweetspot" I'm looking for, I'll keep ya posted.
Definitely the Babolat Pure Drive Standard. I don't use the racket though. I have demoed them before, it is a "tweener" racket. the whole stringbed is a sweetspot.
Prestige Tour Mid hands down. Of all my rackets, a Pro Staff Tour 90, a Pro Staff 6.0 85, a Pro Staff 6.0 95, a Prince More Precision, a Pro Staff Classic 6.1 MP Std, three Yonex MP Tour-1 90's, a Yonex Ti-RD 80, and my Prestige Tour Mid, the Prestige Tour Mid gives me the best feedback, power, and of course that nice "Thwap" sound. I love my MP Tour-1's but the Prestige Tour is just great from everywhere. I wish i could get my hands on at least 2 more in a 4 1/2 grip.
