    300 g arm friendly recommendation for 49 y.o. Intermediate

    Tecnifibre TFight 300 RS or 305 RS. These racquets are foam-filled, which makes them arm friendly even with stiffness over 65 RA strung. Prince Phantoms are also arm-friendly, but are much less stiff, so might provide less power for the same stroke effort. Too bad you can't demo. Do you have...

    Suggestion racquets for a newbie

    NRG2 is a less stiff string than Babolat Synthetic Gut, and is a multifilament, where the Babolat string is a solid synthetic nylon string. Multifilament strings are supposed to play more like natural gut than the solid synthetic guts, but in my opinion there is only a very slight feel...

    Suggestion racquets for a newbie

    Everyone will have different opinions on racquets. There are a lot of good racquets out there. Part of the decision process depends on how often you will be playing and how serious you will be in trying to improve your game.

    Leaves on the court in the fall

    The courts I play on have trees right next to them, so dealing with leaves all year, but especially in fall. The city blows off the courts a few times a week in the morning, but they need it much more than that. Several people in my tennis group bring blowers in case the others aren't there that...

    My wife needs a New Racket - I suspect you fine people can get me some good options.

    Here is a page from the Tennis Warehouse University that lists vibration frequency of racquets. Lower is better as far as elbow health goes. https://twu.tennis-warehouse.com/cgi-bin/vibfrequency.cgi Stiffness RDC is also a factor, again lower is better, but your wife may need something a bit...
