What kind of racket do you use?? "@@"Are you happy with it?



Just curious what rackets other MTF posters use
*I use the nTour Two [Wilson] myself


I`m pretty happy with the nTour Two~ especially it`s good for producing heavy top spin ground strokes, however I find the backhand [single] very hard to hit consistently, though that`s probably due to my poor technique..

Anyway the large frame size suits me as it`s quite forgiving on my misstimed & framed shots.. Justine Henin uses the same racket but with a 95 head size.


So let me know what you use [if you don`t mind] & strengths/weaknesses of the racket


My racket`s specifics:

nTour Two 105 [Wilson]
Head Size:
105 sq. in. / 677 sq. cm.
Length: 27.25 inches / 69 cm
Strung Weight: 10.4oz / 295g
Balance: 3 pts Head Heavy
Swingweight: 339
Stiffness: 65
Beam Width: 23mm / 24mm / 23mm Dual Taper Beam
Composition: 25% nCoded Hyper Carbon / 75% nCoded Graphite
Power Level: Medium
Swing Speed: Moderate-Fast
Grip Type: True Grip
String Pattern:
16 Mains / 20 Crosses
Mains skip: 7T,9T,7H,9H
One Piece
No shared holes
String Tension: 53-63

Head Prestige. Hitting the sweet spot is money.

That's not the appropriate forum. There's a place for equipment talk.

So racket talk isn`t appropriate for `General Messages` on tennis but Tard Wars is OK

You're a fast learner kiddo.

I'm just being nice, no need for the reaction. They'll move the thread soon enough. Go to Amateur Tennis > Tennis Equipment.

Yes, but not for this forum.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Just in the process of changing to the Head Microgel Radical. I've tried it out in my last few matches and it's quite simply the best racquet I've ever hit with.

I'm not missing a ball at the moment

It has incredible control but gives you more than enough power and spin as well. I've fallen in love with it

Re: What kind of racket do you use?? "@@"Are you happy with it?

The best rackets ever are the pro staff 85 and my racket used by nearly all of the touring head players - head prestige classic. Safin still uses this racket with paintjob, and i can see why. Amazing feel, flexibility, has great control and power. Really a FANTASTIC racket, too bad people are blown away by marketing these days.

Thanks for the info mate<

Does the Head Prestige generate lots of topspin
How about slicing with the backhand??
