Fisher M PRO-N0 1 105

I demoed this racquet today for one hour. I found it to be very flexible with plenty of power on ground strokes, very maneuvrable at the net and descent speed on the serve. The catch? Well it hurt my arm and if I continue hitting with it I might develop a tennis elbow.
Is there any possible modifications to make this racquet safer. I am 60 years old and too old to change my strokes. :(
Any recommendations for another flexible racquet preferably over 12 oz.

Thanks

Tennis elbow from a 27 inch, 11.8 ounce, 58 flex stick -- it may just be time to take up billiards, I'm wondering. Just how underwhelming was the serve with this thing.

Suggest the Volkl Tour 10 Generation II or Volkl Tour 10 Generation I which is no longer in production but available on websites. Fischer's Pro Tour FT is also a soft racket with good characteristics. I've found all of these to be easy on the arm/elbow and I'm near your age.

I played the original PN1 for 3 years and loved them but developed bad GE. I'm 47. Just switched to a ProKennex Ki5 which does not further aggravate my elbow. It doesn't make sense logically that the flexible Fischer would cause elbow problems but it does for me and i've heard other stories. LCW, i've heard you can play effectively with Fischers as low as 48 lbs so maybe you can try dropping the tension way down. My last resort was to drop from 63 to 56 but the PN1 still hurt my elbow. Maybe i should try 50 but now i'm satisfied with my PK.

Thank you all for taking the time to answer my questions.

Ollinger: That was funny. Don't be surprised one day if some one advises you to take up billiards. :)

It would surprise me if it didn't happen as I've always said to guys I play with that if the game ever becomes a source of too much pain, it's billiards for me.

lcw, don't know if you can get demos from TW where you live, but the Pro Kennex Type R may be a good stick for you to try -- flexible but crisp- and solid-feeling, and slightly under 12 ozs. with overgrip and dampener. Check out the comparative reviews.
