Thanks for the advice, everyone. I really appreciate it.
I've been an avid golfer during my time away from tennis (8 handicap). But it's become harder to spend 4+ hours on the golf course on weekends as I've gotten older, so I'm looking to get back into tennis where I can spend a couple of hours playing instead.
I used to think finding the perfect golf club (drivers, irons, wedges, etc.) and balls (spin, distance, etc.) was a challenge. But I see now that it was child's play after researching which tennis racquet frame, strings, tension, etc. to get.
Granted, at least some businesses like TW allow you to demo racquets, but still, finding the "perfect" combination seems like a daunting task at best.
My thanks again to all of you.
