    90 to 95 are the better headsizes, but 93 is the best

    95 is probably the best of both worlds.. not too small, not too big.. just perfect.. but i like my 100 for massive amounts of topspin!

    I like anything from 93" to 100" but 100 is much friendlier to today's game of junior tennis :p

    Just a side question, thought of this just now ...

    Didn't we think JennyS was some kind of racquet marketing researcher? Always asking what people's favorite frames are, which type of frames we liked, and etc...

    Possible but even it were true I doubt that people that post on this board represent the average tennis player so I am not sure what kind of conclusions you can draw from any poll done here. I honestly don't know anybody outside these boards that plays with a PS 85 or POG.

    Met two players locally who use those racquets exclusively. And they are in their 20s.

    95 has a lot of explosive power if you hit flat, and explosive top-spin if you hit less-flat. I really love that about the 95 ;).

    I like between 93 and 98, but 95 is about best. I just with the Volkl Tour 10 VE could have the exact same specs, but with a slightly smaller head. Then it would be truely great instead of just really good.

    90 works best for me. Not too big, not too small. I start losing some maneuverability with anything bigger. That's why I really want a PS 6.0 90. :(

    105" and 102" should have been also included in the poll which is a much more common headsize than 97

    I can't seem to get any control with anything over 93 inches so I use a 90 size head.

    Something around 90 to 93 square inches is perfect for me.
