I know it's stiffness can cause problems, so I went with the hybrid after the racquet with the full bed BBO went bad.
I use vibration dampeners on all my racquets and I still feel a 'zing' with the hybrids.
While I like the extra pop of the poly, I HATE the way my hand feel!
What are other's thoughts and problems/solutions on their racquets?
I have just picked up a Fischer Magnetic Tour racquet that has Yonex TG125 tough brain plus on it and will leave the ones strung with poly alone for awhile to see what happens.
If it means 'no poly or no play!', I will do without it!
I had a similar issue a few years back when playing W/ Lux BB ACE. My arm would be tingling and I'd wake up in the middle of the night with my arm cramped up in an almost deformed looking position. I gave up on poly and went back to soft multi and, poof, it went away. Yes, poly is addictive, but a possible quick and cheap solution (realize there could be multiple reasons for your condition) is to dump the poly, ALL Poly regardless of the claims to come in, and go with multi or gut for a while. It's worth a shot before switching equipment or seeking medical advice. Hope that helps.
