much easier to buy a powerful frame and play first strike.
My experience is the opposite though. Majority of rec players hit too flatish and frequently into the net or long. Think about this: tennis seems to be meant to be played frequently with many long rallies and point ended with a winner or difficult shot. That's what pros show us. Rec players do the opposite, frequently bashing the ball out for no reason.
