Hi, It's been a while since I came here, and a while since I played tennis as a matter of fact. Anyway I tried out an old prince racket my friend had a while ago and I could easily tell it was balanced head heavy. I was pleasantly surprised with it because my volleys had a good punch to them and it didn't do my serve any harm at all. If anything the racket seemed to travel through the air faster. I would go as far to say I preferred it over expensive head light rackets such as the T fights and M fils and even the yonex's. Are there any decent head heavy/even balance rackets out there these days?
