I need a bit of help with selecting a new racket.. Currently I am using the Wilson N6-1 95 with Alu Power Rough at 60 lbs (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageRCWILSON-WN6195.html ) I love this racket to be honest, I've been using it for nearly a year now. I've always had a.. lacking serve. The power was hard to generate and consistancy was a big issue. Recently, when my strings had popped I had been borrowing friends rackets (things from the RDX300 SuperMid, some of those 20 dollar walmart rackets, etc), and I noticed my serve was.. phenominal with these (at least in comparison with my old racket) and this led me to believe that the racket is simply too heavy for me to wield on the serve.. even if I think that I can handle it. I was naive to think I'd be able to handle it, telling myself that "this is the best tennis I've played in my life" was due only because the racket forced me to use proper form etc, and now its engrained into my body. Now I've realized that the players racket IS NOT FOR ME. I CANNOT handle it, I AM NOT good enough to use it. To make sure it wasnt just in my head and it was just a few lucky serves. I did a small test. On different days I went out and served 50 balls and recorded which ones went in, and thought about how easy it was or how hard it was. I noticed with my n6-1 I had to time everything perfectly, and if I didn't, I wouldn't get the serve I wanted (It'd lack either pace, placement, getting in, etc..). I noticed that with longer rackets, pace was really easy to produce so I just focused some more on my form, and it actually just made everything that much easier. When I went back and looked at the results, they came as followed. N6-1 95 Flat Serves : 18/50 Kick Serves : 30/50 RDX300 SupMid Flat serves : 34/50 Kick serves :28/50 LM Instinct XL Flat serves : 33/50 Kick Serves : 36/50 My friends walmart racket Flat serves : 22/50 Kick Serves : 15/50 BPD+ Flat serves : 39/50 Kick Serves : 35/50 etc etc.. I've come again to the forums to ask for some suggestions. Mainly what I am looking for is something that plays similar to the n6-1 95 off the ground and is just a tad lighter. No more than 11.7 oz should be fine.. Rackets I have considered are the Radical, the nTour, the LM Instinct XL (The bit of extra length compensates the slight heaviness), BPD+, and a few others I can't think of. I've tried all of these, and of them I really liked the Instinct XL and the BPD+, though it might only be due to the fact I was so happy with my serve (perhaps I'm too bent on it?). I'm open to any suggestions, any price range. If you wish for me to tell you about my game, I will. But if this is all you need, all the better..
