HELP! I played for a year with a Wilson N-code racquet (about 9.2oz, I think that's the unstrung weight), had not played in about 15 years, started with beginner classes/drills and worked my way up to Int/Adv drill classes, played 2 hours twice/week - I'm a 5'6" female with somewhat small-ish hands, and I hit the ball fairly hard. I didn't have help when selecting a racquet (in hindsight, my fault), but one instructor told me to get one with the smallest grip, and another strung it with the tightest because I hit so hard and he put on a dampener too. Last May (07) I developed bad tennis elbow in my forehand arm (I've got it a bit now in other arm) and have been in therapy since (thankfully no surgery). I tried a Beg drill class a few weeks ago, which went ok, used the instructor's racquet, these were Wilson's and felt even lighter than mine - my mojo and control were TERRIBLE, the ball was all over the place, I know it's going to take time to get up to speed again. I was a little sore, but not in pain, making sure I'm stretching, etc., I wear a support brace too. Yes, I know proper technique is important too, I'm workin' on it. I'm going to ask if my instructor tonight has a racquet I can use with a little more weight to it with the partial thinking of "letting the racquet do the work for you", which the ones I was using felt like I was swinging a stick. I'm so confused what type of racquet I should be using now that I'm trying to get back to playing on a more regular basis. I've had so many differing opinions from instructors, therapists, online "experts"/data ... I know vibration absorption is important, but beyond that I can't seem to sort out what I should be using. I'm not ready to buy a new racquet yet - if this will be the best course of action - and I'm on a bit of a budget/can't spend huge amount of $ on it. Any/All guidance, suggestions, etc, would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if I've left out any relevant info to help answer my dilemma. THANKS!
