Kick Serve 14

the apdc will give you wicked spin... the extreme pro will as well, but you get much more stability at the net due to its weight... serves are similar, but its easier to slice or kick it with the apdc


Haven't used Head racket but i agree with THESEXPISTOL on the Aero Pro Drive and I suggest it.


I have used both the Head rkt feels more solid is heavier. The lollipop head design on the micro gel isan acquired taste I found it very useful on my slice serves but not so on flat ones down the T> believe I hit a heavier ballwith the micro gel. All in all if you want a heavier rkt, hence heavier ball go with the Head rkt, but remember go with the highest swing weight you can effectively swing for 3 sets, you will know this in playing people you ranking or higher if your forehand for a righty go to the right when intending straight ahead or corss court you are late, backhands to the left. Good hitting
