Back when I knew nothing about tennis I bought this Wilson Hyper Pro Staff 5.0 Stretch racket because it kept me from hitting too wild. The added length and weight also helped keep my strokes more stable and give me a bit more power while keeping control. I'm short at 5'5" so I find it hard to normally generate the flick power that other taller players can do with modern rackets. So it has been a decade now and after playing with newer rackets I find that I'm back to this old old racket and I can't find any reviews on it. In essence, I have no idea what this racket is built for. All I know is that it is a brick and if I start to swing really hard it's basically a freight train that won't change course after the swing is committed. Even if I bean the frame the sheer weight and momentum keeps the ball sort of in the intended path. My backhands also have tremendous speed and punch with this racket, way way way more than I could ever manage with something like the lighter Pure Drive 107. The downsides to this racket for me are: 1. It can seriously tire me out. 2. Due to the weight I can't really flick it. I have to have a full wind-up, full follow-through, etc. I see good players and they seem to be just flicking their racket heads windshield-washer style and still creating tremendous punch and spin. I'm not too sure what my question is. Are there similar stretch rackets around that still retain the solidness on contact as my Pro Staff while being more flickable?
