Racquet for a beginner??
Ive been searching, reading, testing ect.. lots of different wilson racquet, I will buy a wilson, and im pretty sure its gonna be a [K] so please keep your recomandation within the brand.
What ive been testing:
Wilson nCode N1 Force 125" head - boy was i wrong thinking a beginner was best off with a large racquet head.. You get some "free" points with the large head, and great power on clean hits.. But ALOT of "way-over-the-fence" hits. But it is a really sweet racquet, it feels good playing with, but to random results for a beginner (me)
Wilson Hammer 95" head (dont remember the exact model). Changed to this one after 1 hour with the N1, WOW!! What a control!! I feelt like i finaly "got it", my forehand was suddenly hard to return for my friend whos been playing for 3 years. He says i suddenly got lots of topspinn on it, and hit alot harder within the line than the N1 Force.
So the hammer was a goodie with lots of control. At first I had a very compact swing, and bought the Wilson K Five 108 after telling the seller that i had a compact swing, and that the N1Force was too much power. Is this still a good choice now that my swing has totally changed?? (i havent recived the K Five yet))
I am now also concidering:
K Three headsize 115", 9.5 oz / 269g.
K Four 112, 9.7 oz / 275g.
K six-two, 100" head, 10.6 oz / 300g
K six-one, 122" head, 9.4 oz / 266g
Grip size 5+
btw: any tips for a beginner?? hitting against a wall? any technics i should practise on? ect.. I dont want to get som bad habits i cant get away from later on...
btw2.. sorry for the bad english, im from Norway.
Kind regards Mr.White
