Re: What Racket Company Do You Use?

Id reccomend a Head Tour 660 to anybody, normally i play with smaller headed rackets like pro staffs but I decided to change, and this racket is old but it is the best I have ever used. Top marks.

Re: What Racket Company Do You Use?

Wilson. Why? My first real raquet is a Wilson, but not only that, it was a decent raquet at an unforgetable price. Seven dollars. Since, I've looked for a better raquet(now that I can afford one) but I haven't really found anything that suits me yet, so, off I go to play with my 7 dollar Wilson.

Re: What Racket Company Do You Use?

I use 2 Kawasaki Boron Graphites, 1 Kawasaki End PR, and 1 Spalding Graphite Pro. (They are all basically the same racket, so I switch when I break strings)

The END Pr is a very old Japanese made racket. It has same shape and style of play as the Wilson N-Code, but it's made out of almost pure wood (so it has a little bend in it). The Borons are also Japanese made, and they hit like a really heavy N-Code, and so does the Spalding. Spalding is made in the U.S., but this was a while back (as Spalding doesn't make rackets anymore). Um, all rackets have been handed down from my parents as they were tennis players. I know my mom got the Kawasakis when she went to Japan, and my dad used the Spalding when he played. I've bought many new rackets, but since these all hit about the same as a N-Code (the 90 inch), I decided to stick with them.

Nice! i also have my parent's rackets(altho they just play for fun). I have an old Wilson(late 70s/early80s, not wooden) and a Fin(newer than d wilson, this manufacture discontinued in early 90s i think). Sort of led me to playing tennis, i used the Fin racket in high sch. Now they're just for collection.
I think there shld be a thread to post d vintage rackets ppl own, i'll like to check em out. like ur Kawasakis End Pr, made out of almost pure wood.

Re: What Racket Company Do You Use?

Wilson. I love playing with a really nice sweet spot, even if it's harder to hit.
I can't wait to get my hands on their new K-Factor.
