Most addicting racket to hit with

Kennex Black Aces (original). They feel heavy when you start hitting, but once you get used to the weight, it is addictive. You just can't give up the easy power and soft flex.

Play with difference racquets. But would always comes back to these two - especially if I need to regain my strokes back.
- Yonex SRD Tour 90
- Wilson N6.1 Tour 90

For me I'd have to say the PS 6.0 85...Just coming back to tennis after a 10 year layoff, but that was the racquet I played with exclusively back when I played a bunch. No chance of finding the sweet spot on a regular basis till I get going again but really an amazing racquet. Also got a chance to hit the Head PT280 for the first time recently (my regular partner plays with one) and it was awesome as well. Didn't realize until I found this forum that there was such a following of the PT280, I see what the fuss is about now though.

Tecnifibre T fight 320 from 58 to 60 pounds, great tool, not so heavy, well balanced, great control, you apply power you get it.

What a great stuf!!!!!
 
Surprised not to see much Babolat love in here compared to other major manufacturers. I love my PDR's. I'll sit there and wail on inside-out forehands from the ad side to my opponent's backhand all day long. When I'm on, I feel in complete command of the court. Of course, that's maybe 1/4 times I play. Other times I just enjoy the racket and scream at myself when I play badly ;)

My elbow still aches from that trip to the DarkSide. May the ice packs be with you.
 
tantalizing thread

hmmm,:oops:

play w/ PDR but still looking for that racquet that is like whoa!!!!!!!!!!!

It's a combo of flex, grip shape ,power, spin, control, headsize and shape

I'm on the demo hunt for it though. Gonna be trying maxply mac, m fil 300, pb 8, head rad pro 100 and maybe some others :mrgreen:

:mrgreen: what would I do without you Mr. Green:mrgreen:

Head XRC.

Wow, I didn't know anyone else knew about XRC. I have one that I use as a training racquet, what a beast! The feel is amazing at impact, just plows through the ball like it was made of sponge. Even the SV PS 85 can't compare.

I just got a PC600 at a reasonable price and took it out for a spin. Too soon to have a definitive opinion on it but it sure seems this is a very addictive racquet...

love my ag100. just ever so slightly leaded up at 3 and 9, leather grips, it's light, responsive, but absolutely substantial through the ball. took a long time to find a racket with feel like that, without feeling like i was hitting with a fossil.

i like fossils, btw, but personally, i find it difficult to whip up and through the ball with the racketspeed i like with a 13+ oz. club, and hard to bring a racket like that around in time when i'm up against a really good player.

Addiction...

I just hit with a Fischer M Comp 95 and I did not want to put it down. A friend of mine had that and several others from the Fischer line including the new Progressor. We also hit with some old woodies(a MacGregor and some other rare one that I had not heard of). The M Comp 95 just feels like butter and I will most likely purchase it from him soon.

Although I enjoy hitting w/ many different rackets, my current top favorites of '08 would have to be the Borris Becker 11 MP and the Tecnifibre VO2 Max Tfight 325 XL in stock form.

I even like the Head Agassi Radical Limited Edition a lot, especially w/ 10grams of lead at the butt. The Prince Original Graphite mid w/ lead is awesome too...
 
PD Roddicks, the power with the spin is addicting. Used to play with MG Prestige MP. Liked them, but the spin on the Roddick was addicting ;-]

Hmmm, for me there were quite a few. Fischer Pro 90 (Stich) this is my definition of a "scalpel", various versions of Pro no 1, some old old mostly fiberglass Volkl (can't remember the name of it), some of the Puma Boris Becker series, older prestige frames with a nice responsive string (not so good with poly), vantage frames are also up there.
Too many to list because I liked them for different reasons.

I played with the XRC but the thing broke (don't remember where). It was a monster of a racquet. All fiberglass I think. Back in the days when even non-wood racquets had feel.

My 200G MW was addictive.

Then I bought a Dunlop TP95 and had an epiphany, and got addicted.

Then I bought my AG300s and had another epiphany, and got addicted again.

Now I'm looking for another epiphany by leading up one of my AG300s to see what that's like.

Meantime, my wife wants me to stop taking epiphanies, as they're bad for your heart :-(

Pimp (why do I like calling you that :shock:) Addictions are curable....but why bother on this one - it is so much fun. And unless your wife threatens to kick you out - go for it!!!

POG oversize! I have used them for 25 years and can't imagine any other racquet that feels thy way it does. You can generate such pace with control without any real effort.

No doubt. I don't have the batspeed to swing them, or I'd be playing these, too.

I think the racket that doesn't tire your arm out. Yonex for one. also racket that gives you predictable power and extra power is there just when you need it.
