The most comfortable racket you've played with?

#8
Wow a Babolat Contact Tour. Never even heard of it. And why add "Tour" to what is obviously a cheapo beginner's frame?

But hey, if you play well with it and it feels comfortable, the world's your oyster at that price point.

As for me, Prince Phantom 100 hands down. Then probably the Prokennex Q+ Tour 325.

so i just googled the Angell K7 and it sounds amazing :O is it as powerful as they say it is? also isn't Angell rackets all online based? you just gotta buy it and hope it works out?
I would not say its powerful, it has decent power but it is a control frame. It is not a tweener but not demanding to pick up and play. I have mine weighed up for more authoritative hitting. Yes, the rest is correct

Recent shoulder issues has caused me to look at low weight low RA rackets, slap a leather grip and overgrip and get them to 10.7/8 slightly head light.

Picked up a Wilson Burn Team 100 for 39.00 at A cademy the other day. Regripped it with leather, installed fullbed Wilson Nat Gut 16g at 58lbs and hit for 2.5 hrs yesterday. At just 10.7oz I marveled at how my joints felt after the hit. I have 4 other similar or lower flex rackets with various arm friendly set ups, but that Burn Team is now my go to racket for monkeying around. Although the 50RA Wilson NFury 100 with Origin at the same weight and balance as the Burn Team is pretty comfy too. I do have 16 comfy narrow beamed Princes but they all weigh at least 1-1.5 oz more than these light weights I am fiddling with right now. So many rackets so little time.

I recently did the same thing with a Volkl V-Sense 6( in stock form a racquet that just would not do for me) the addition of a leather grip and a little lead in the handle to change the balance worked wonders and made this a really excellent stick.......my "go-to" until i found the TFight

hello :) i am copy paste a reply i did from different thread. as i tried the Prince phantom pro 100 tonight.
did it not work out for me because i used the "pro 100" is their much difference with the non pro version?

i just demo'd a Prince phantom pro 100 and the serve is a bit iffy.. at least i don't feel confident with it but my opponents kept making errors against my serve.. so not sure what was causing them problems.

the forehand/backhand was very solid.. i felt in control and kept hitting deep. hitting so hard at the ball and it goes in the court.. they expect another solid hit then i trick them and dropshot it in.. dropshots work well with this racket.

by the end of the night.. i am sadly currently dealing with a bit of back pain.. i think it was the serves causing it or maybe i am just used to a more forgiving racket instead of completely doing all the power work.

Youtek Radical Pro and Prince Graphite Pro 110. Volkl C10 Pro is quite soft too.

As for more recent models I like the Prince Textreme 100T and Prince Tour 100 ESP. I currently play with the Pure Strike 16x19 first gen and find it plenty comfortable, but I know this opinion is not shared by many.

Donnay Pentacore 102, has RA of about 56, I believe, have been using it recently, can't recall anything more comfortable. Prince Phantom comes close but I felt the mishits more when using the Prince.
