Favorite racket weight
 
Once upon a time heavy rackets meant power. We are now told (see the Feliciano Lopez commercial) that's no longer the case. What do you use for your court adventures?

12 oz Dunlop Biomimetic Max 200G.... Lead in handle.

Squidward 01-22-2013 11:18 AM

Mine are usually in the 11.8oz -12.2oz range. 6-8 pts HL.

BlueB 01-22-2013 11:19 AM

11.5 oz...

djdannyj25 01-22-2013 11:22 AM

12oz to 12.5 oz range, all head heavy

vergica 01-22-2013 11:31 AM

12.5 Hl 6-8

After many experiments with lead tape, just a tad shy of 12oz is perfect for me.

I'm usually around 12.4oz+ ideally. That being said I play comfortably in the 11.5oz range as well.

I can relate....

acura9927 01-22-2013 02:25 PM

11.3 TO 11.6 SW 305-310 6 PTs HL or so

12.1, 7-100pts headlight, a decent swingweight, and I'm golden. Even if my footwork isn't.

I think around 11.75-12 is a great balance (depending on swing weight) for me. Not hard to swing but still stable enough for blocking hard balls back. Easy to increase racquet head speed and pump up the spin. Maneuverable and not feeling sluggish while still being solid and stable.

10 pounds, 10 points head heavy.

hescobal 01-22-2013 04:13 PM

13.5 ounces

luishcorreia 01-22-2013 04:13 PM

300g, 6pts HL

BMWprestigem3 01-22-2013 06:16 PM

My Prestige Pro's are about 12.8 oz (Which I may increase). My Prestige Mid's are about 13.1 oz.

I think my preferred weight should be around 340g or about 12oz, but I have not been able to get anything close to this thus far. My present rackets weigh around 361g or about 12.6oz, :(

Ahhh.. my problem is the exact opposite... my favorite weight is 12.6 oz and I have to weigh down the 12oz.. Much preferred to your situation. :)

Absolute 01-22-2013 07:43 PM

my favorite racket, the prestige ig mp is at 368grams and 5 points HL

dr325i 01-23-2013 05:32 PM

12.35 oz (350g), 32cm balance
