National 70's video

#1
I was just enjoying a video shared by Brent Abel of one of his matches at the National Indoor Championships 70 plus division. What hit me immediately was that both players are using large oversized racquets, hit mostly slice on their backhands, have classic strokes with classic grips and move pretty well. Any thoughts from others in this age group or close as to when they moved to an oversized racquet and why.

Some players lose the ability to generate their own power when they get older, and the oversize, high power racquets allow them to get needed depth on their shots with little added effort.

I give them props for still playing competitively at that age!
