    What racket to you just feels amazing everytime you crack the ball with it and provides a feeling more addicting than a drug? To me there is only one racket, and I have hit with just about every racket out there made in the past 4 years.

    My winner:
    Microgel Prestige MP. Havent hit the mid yet but im sure that one is even sweeter.

    I am laying with the microgel prestige pro and I like it but that is a different feeling for me. If you want to talk about a plush feel, my 200G has it. I don't play with it any more but when you block a hard volley with it...there is nothing like it. A buddy of mine plays with a head classic mid plus. It is burgandy and I think the head size is 102? Anyway, that is one very plush stick. If they sold them now, I would probably have been tempted by it. I just like those buttery feeling sticks. You know, when you swing through the ball, the stick just goes through without any hesitation.

    I have two fischer m pros (ul) but the prokennex ionic 5 pse is the best hitting racket without any equals.

    Head Classic mp is the Prestige Tour/Trisys 300 without the suspension grip system. Both have a sweeter sweetspot in the sweetspot that is both airy, has no tension and is hot. Even the Pro Tour 630 feels less refined. Used the PK Ki 5 PSE, has an odd balance. Still own all three of these sticks.

    I love hitting with Fischer Pro 1's. I just love the way they feel and the sound at impact. So I gotta agree with Nick.

    Prostaff Classic 6.1 si for me. It's not my main stick because i'm having a hard time finding them and because of the stiffness but every time i hit with one, it's pretty orgasmic.

    From all the recent opinions posted here, i'd say the AG 100 sounds like pretty addictive too.

    I have an old Prince Graphite Pro 110 with 20 year old strings in it. The feel it just nuts. I think it's the fiberglass. It flexes like a fishing pole.

    I used to play with the Head Classic MP 102 and am selling it right now. The racquet has a really nice sweetspot and feels really good but I like the feeling on serves and volleys the Mid gives me and am sticking to it.

    Mid serves great but when playing dubs, the small head made volleys tough. No longer worthy nor capable of wielding the mid effectively. Still have a few, actually owned pr. Goran's PC600XL.

    Psychologists say that the most powerful reinforcement is intermittent. Give a rat an occasional reward, randomly, and he'll slave away a lot longer for it than a rat who gets regular, predictable pleasure.

    So definitely the PS 85. Absolutely the best sweet spot ever made, even if so tiny that almost no one except pros were good enough to find it very often. I still remember my occasional rewards with that one after a decade away.

    K90. Finding the sweetspot and absolutely crushing a forehand is the best feeling ever. Too bad I can't do it on a regular match basis.

    Yonex RDX500. Makes you feel like your groundies are invulnerable. Why did you discontinue this racquet, why. Where am I to find one now.

    Rather than name a racquet per ce, I'd name a brand - Babolat. Over time I've found myself checking out, playingas my main frame, or going back to such frames as the Pure Control, the PD+ and the PDR. I'm also now getting to know the PST. For me, it's the supreme, pierless, numero uno power and spin dynamic, that on serves and groundies, makes Babs so very 'addicting.' The only racquet (non-Babolat) that I have a similar history with would be my super solid, super smooth PT 630.

    New rackets. You get all excited to hit with them, and you can't wait until your next hitting.

    Depends on the mood. Lately I fiddled with the Prince CTS Thunderstick 110. Another Prince that has an addictive feel is the Mag Pro 90.

    Donnay pro 1 is not bad.

    Wilson Reflex mid is the racquet that tops the feel department for me.

    Yonex RDX500 MP. Soooo soft And its a good looking racket so I won't smash it. (The RDS 001 is too flashy for me so I had to rape an pillage it against a park bench)
