I'm about to start playing again after a cool 20 year layoff. Back then I used a Dunlop 200g, served and volleyed on 1st and 2nd serves, and my best shot -- besides my serve -- was my slice backhand. Believe it or not, I used a Continental grip for everything. In other words, I played like it was 1965. I would rate myself as a solid 5.0 at that time; I beat several players ranked in the the top 50 in Texas in summer tournaments, although to be fair that level of player could beat me pretty comfortably as long as they could return my serve. Most couldn't, however. A shoulder injury forced me out of the game just as the inside-out forehand crowd started to rear their (to me, anyway) ugly heads. I'm in NYC and have decided that the lure of the National Tennis Center is too much to resist, so I'm at the very least going to play some mixed with my girlfriend this spring and summer. After extensive reading on these boards, I got a great closeout deal on a Volkl DNX 9, which will be something to bash around until I get enough game back to do some real testing. Here is what I think I want to try: Fisher Pro No. 1 and Magnetic Tour Volkl DNX 10, C10, Tour 10 Gen II I like FLEXIBLE racquets and I hate Wilson and Yonex (no offense to those who like them, they are just not for me and will not be considered). I've used the search function already; that's how I found these frames. If anyone would like to opine about these, or suggest others in the 100 sq. in. range, I would appreciate it. Oh, and I've had great fun reading on this board, and not just in the racquets section. The game has changed completely since I last followed it.
