I am on the varsity tennis team at school and I have a case of tennis elbow which I have made a thread about previously. I had ben using Head Sonic Polys for 4 months on a Prince Hybrid Hornet Oversized until I started serving everyday. Then my arm started hurting a lot and I had tennis elbow. I bought my second raquet, same type, with Luxilon Alu Power Rough mains and Biphase crosses. I didn't play with this raquet for a while(2-3 weeks) as I was sticking with my old combo. However, my Sonics broke one day and I started using the hybrids. My play deterioated, I got no top spin, I was hitting out a lot, but my arm felt a lot better. I should mention that my raquet with the hybrids feels lighter( I don't know if this has anything to do with it). Here is the pattern of the last few weeks: I rest on the weekends and my arm slowly feels worse and worse up till Friday(I play everyday). Now when using the hybrids, my arm wasn't that bad I have a problem choosing which direction to go with stringing because I am close to cutting my hyrbids. I certainly want a string not harsh on the arm but I want the playability like my Head Sonics(which I can use as long as I don't serve). Oh one more thing, I am considering lead tape for my lighter racquet.
