I know this is a stupid post since how it plays should be most important but would you play a racket you think is ugly? A little background, I'm now playing again after quiting for about 3-4 years. I'm a pace player with solid but inconsistent groundstrokes (plenty of spin). I can generate all the power I need so control and feel is key. Former Doubles player so need an all court racket. I have been playing a PS85 for the last 10-12 years and can't seem to find anything better, till last night. Tried a MicroGel Radical MP. Although very light I loved the feel of this racket. Very crisp and hit solid from the baseline and net. I LOVED how it served. First racket I have ever hit that hit flat serves like the PS 85 and Kick serves just as well too. So, I think this racket is ugly!! Not to offend those who like it but I can't stand the paint job. I like the color scheme but not the shine and look of it. Am I just being stupid here? Anyone else ever in this situation? Anyone have another racket suggestion that might fit the play and appearance test? I've tried the following and didn't like them; O3 Tour, O3 Black, Volkl DNX9, tried the Flexpoint Prestige and liked it some but didn't like it off the serves and didn't really like the Flexpoint (made the racket unstable to me). Have also hit the 002 Tour and liked the way it played but not as crazy about the feel of it. Sorry for the long post but I would really like some ideas, or just tell me I'm stupid and I should play the Radical (nice name too, what is this the 80's).
