I'm back on these boards after a several-year long hiatus and it immediately feels like home- I'm so glad this heavy vs. light argument hasn't been settled yet

I grew up playing with a very heavy + headlight racquet and I can't get used to the light ones. Light + headlight - too much work for me to put pace on the ball. Light + headheavy - even more swingweight than a heavy racquet... makes me even more tired with my type of strokes.

Against a player who is overpowering me I have found that switching to an Oversize with my normal specs (maybe a tiny bit lighter) works better that trying a much lighter racquet for more maneuverability. I'd rather be able to return some shots deep and hard rather than return most shots shallow and weak
