Sorry if this may be a bit long-winded. I bought a Head Flexpoint Prestige Team at the end of last summer after just picking up tennis, which I now think may be too much racquet for a novice player like myself. I've been playing quite frequently over this summer, but I am finding it tough to control my shots. The racquet is quite unforgiving; unless I hit it with a perfect swing at the perfect spot, the shot likely goes waaaay out or waaaay high. I tried my friend's racquet today, an old Head Ti, and I found it was much more forgiving. Even if it was hit improperly it still went in the general area where I wanted it. It was quite frustrating going back to my own racquet seeing all my shots sail waaay out. He noticed that my racquet had a Swing Index of L1, whereas his was S1. What characteristics/specs should I be looking for if I want one more similar (i.e. forgiving) to my friends'? The Flex of the frame? Power? Or perhaps would it be just a simple case of getting it strung with a different tension? Thanks a lot! Highly appreciated!
