Those all look like cheapo discount store rackets.
Since you're on TW here, why don't you go to the shopTW section and order a real racket? Real rackets retail for over 150 bucks, and some are discounted down as low as 65 bucks brand new.
If your choices are as listed, it don't matter, they're all cheapo rackets.

Start your search with Tennis Warehouse's "Racquet Help" on their home page. That will take you to "How To Choose A Racquet" and you will have a good base to work from on making a good choice. Then as Lee suggested, there are many choices to select from, many at a sale or reduced price. Welcome to tennis.

Agree with LeeD. No reason to buy a goofy walmart special when older models of excellent racquets exist on TW for nearly the same price...

Here are some winners:

Volkl Power Bridge 7: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Volk...VPB7.html#spec

Microgel Radical MP: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Head...AD-HMGRAD.html

Aerogel 4D 500 Tour: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Dunl...LOP-D4D5T.html

Borris Becker Delta Core London Tour (might be a bit much for you, but GREAT deal): http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Bori...KL-BBDCLT.html

I've been playing tennis for 30 years, once reached a Q level or A/Open level.
I currently play with either DunlopAero 500's or the HeadMicroGelOS.

The older 4d 500 was one of the worst rackets I tried, I'm going to guess the bio 500 will be similar. The 4d 500 TOUR was a lot better imo and is on sale also.

Im one of those who believe a new or developing player is going to have a much easier time controlling and developing their shots with a lower powered racket. I would recommend one of the Radical Midplus rackets. There is also the Liquidmetal version that is slightly less expensive than the Microgel. I let someone who was having a hard time controling a huge high powered racket borrow a very low powered racket amd his consistency made a huge improvement. He even started hitting harder shots.

Please dont get poly strings until you are a well developed player.

go with the radical, and it a good racquet.

Either is fine. Just go with what one feels best in your hand.

The Dunlop Bio 600 may also be an option.

I am biased towards Dunlop, I think theyre all great.

MAN TAKE THE PRINCE TT WARRIOR! It's a no-brainer!

robbo1970 02-11-2013 01:13 PM

I wouldn't know where you can buy the TT Warrior in the UK, whereas Dunlops are easy to find.
