If you've followed me in this forum I'm 45, fat and returning to tennis after last playing it in high school. And even then I can't say I "played" it, it was more a game amongst friends. I own a Wilson [K] Zen Team 103 (pre-strung) and a Wilson [K] Four with some custom string at 60#. Just for kicks I demoed some rackets. I heard a lot of nice things about Volkl and Babolat so I picked a few... BABOLAT XS 105 RACQUET BABOLAT PURE DRIVE RODDICK GT VOLKL POWER BRIDGE 4 VOLKL POWER BRIDGE V1 MP By the specs and my skill level I thought I'd like the Power Bridge V1 the best. I started with that. Then the other Volkl then the Roddick then the XS 105. I was SHOCKED. Of all the rackets I've played around with now (the two Wilson's included), the Pure Drive was incredible! I felt strong. The racket felt solid and didn't rattle or make those funky "out of the sweet spot" sounds. I felt in control of the ball and was more accurate too. I don't know if it is because of the weight or the stiffness or what but it was by far the best feeling racket I've used in my life. By the way, the other Babolat (which the Babolat site recommended for me) felt like my Wilson's. The two Volkl's definitely felt like more expensive rackets than my Wilson's but not enough to make me want to buy them. Of my Wilson's the Four feels better than the Zen. Can you guys give me any feedback?
