    Suggestions for UTR 7-8 Player

    Long-time lurker (ever since 8th grade when I began thinking about racquets and a coaching change) but first time poster. For reference, I am an All-State tennis player who is turning down DII/DIII/JUCO offers for academic reasons and will likely be playing DI Club Tennis next year. I want a new...

    I am an aggressive baseliner with a one handed back hand. I am unable to demo racquets and am very interested in both these. Which one would you recommend?

    Graphene 360+ Presitge MP/ Graphene 360+ Speed Pro/ VCore 95 '21

    Out of curiosity which is closest to the Blade v7 18x20? I've been reading that both Head racquets are similar to some degree to the Blade, but curious as to what characteristics they all share and which are the outliers. I'm aware of the TF40 being a direct comparison, more interested in other...

    String experiences/findings for Head Graphene 360+ Prestige MP

    For the people that played with this frame: what are your experiences with strings in the 360+ Prestige MP? Is it string sensitive for you? Do full beds of poly or hybrids suit this frame better for you? What kind of tensions work best? Etc, etc. Interested to hear.

    Retail Head YT PM retail vs Head Pro Stock 237.3

    Hello everyone, I've been playing tennis for awhile and finally found out that there are "Pro Stock" racquets. I use to play with a Retail Head YT Prestige Mid back in 2012 and sold it because i was developing TE but I miss it dearly. I found an okay Head Pro Stock 237.3 for sale for $130 and...

    Can an intermediate player use an "advanced player's racquet"?

    I'm a 3.0-3.5 player who's taken some time off from the game, but I'm starting to play more again... I'm looking for a new racquet, and I've always liked racquets on the smaller end (98 sq. in. or less), with good weight, that are head light, and have lots of flex. A racquet that fits this...

    Upgrade from Youtek Prestige MP? Anything with same plush feel?

    Hey guys. Looking to upgrade from my Youtek Prestige MP. Want something with the same super plush and comfortable feel. I like control-based racquets that swing fast. My style is defensive baseliner, with a 2handed BH. Love returning the ball, so something maneuverable but stable is important...

    Has the Speed series replaced the Radical in HEAD's contemporary line-up of racquets?

    I mean just look at how TW presents the racquets to the general public: "The Speed family of racquets sits between the classic control of the Prestige line and the modern power of the Extreme series. These racquets are perfect for all-court players looking for a good balance between power and...

    So I got a pair of Nike Air Zoom Prestige

    Thanks to Tennis Warehouse's sale price, I opted to buy and try a pair of the Nike Air Zoom Prestige. I'm an admittedly life-long Nike guy. My favorite tennis shoe for the last decade of playing has been the Nike Air Vapor 9/9.5s. I tried the Lunar Ballistecs but it never really felt right. But...

    Kindly ID this Prestige

    I bought this used Graphene Prestige S from a local tennis shop. It comes with a Head leather grip. By the way, this local shop, besides selling new gears, also sells used rackets from amateur and junior players. I'm wondering if this is a non-retail Graphene Prestige S. Note: I've had this...

    Babolat Pure Strike VS Tour question

    Hello, good morning, I am a user of Babolat Pure Control Tour (version before Strike VS tour) and my racquets are too beaten, basically on the end-of-life due the massive usage.. :-) I am looking for a replacement of these racquets and read in other threads (some employee from Babolat) saying...

    What can I expect from this?

    Aside from the billions of paint scraps and chips, the rotten grip held by a rusted staple, the dust mixed with rust, the missing trap door and being left in the open for days and days on end, it's not in that bad of a place... purely structurally speaking. The bumper even seems usable...

    Prestige Classic fans, please help me identify these two Prestige Classic 600s

    I recently purchased two Prestige Classic 600s, and I’m fairly confident the one in the Classic tourna grip is the tennis warehouse re-issue and the leather grip one is possibly an original from the 90s. Note: I forgot to include a picture of the leather grip one having a specification typo...

    Best Head Prestige generation after the Classic and why.

    I know this is very subjective, but which prestige of recent production best resembles the Prestige Classic in terms of feel and control/power balance?

    Racquet Technologies: Real vs Marketing

    I was always under the impression that graphite felt and performed the best. I thought newer technologies were just cost cutting measures. As a result, I stuck to and collected old "Made in Austria" Head Prestiges. Then, everything changed when I played with the Prince Textreme Tour 95. It's...
