Re: What Racquet DO You Use?

Right now the good old wilson ntour 95, the first version. I might upgrade to a new racket soon though. It's 69.2cm long, weighs 28.8 grams, has a balance of 2pts. hl, and has an open 16 by 20 string pattern.

I still believe in the one-handed backhand.

Great stick. How are you finding it compared to heavier racquets, I think you used to use the Ksix-one 90, right?

I had hit with it some time ago and found it pretty solid. I'm just coming back to tennis tomorrow, so I'll give you further information tomorrow. I expect to lose a bit of pop on serve, to be honest, but the bigger headsize will probably increase a bit the power of my groundies, at the expense of control...

Re: What Racquet DO You Use?

Glenn, what's with the Finnish flag and love with Finland nowadays btw ?

And to answer the question, I have the KFactor K Six-One Tour 90.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

You gotta love Suomi. Great country and a friend from there made me fall in love with the people.

Not yet. And I don't think I will when I come to Europe, as my Finn friend will be in Scotland.

Well, I just hit for the first time after my 1 month injury lay-off. Of course I'm pretty out of focus and lacking precision, but this racket is waaaay more powerful than the nsix-one 90, of course. I feel my groundies pretty solid but I still gotta adjust to the lessened control and the fact that my shots end up sooo flat with this racket.. I felt the slice was still pretty okay, too. Serve was okay too, it felt better on the shoulder.

Now I need to get more court time to give further detail, but I like the racket, as far as I can like any racket not called nsix-one or prostaff.

Re: What Racquet DO You Use?

Head Flexpoint Mid, with Luxilon LTS. Is the best stick I've ever owned. Head now has upgraded it to the Mico Gel version with a lot more flex, but I'm sticking with the previous version.
