you would be better off with the storm, the storm tour is probably too heavy for you

Re: Need Help on choosing a new tennis racket

Right... I have tried the Babolat Pure Storm and Head microgel Radical. I found the Head way way to powerful and just didnt like the babolat at all :S
I am now deciding between the Wilson Nblade and Yonex RDS 001 mid or midplus. I cant find any of them in my local tennis shop to demo, but i have played with the Nblade once before and found it to be a stable decent racket.
Can anyone tell me about the Yonex RDS 001 mid or midplus as i have read lots of reviews and according to the reviewers would suit my style of play ( agressive baseline play ).
Thanks in advance again !

Re: Need Help on choosing a new tennis racket

from what you have described of your game there is no way you should even consider the rds 001 mid and i think the midplus is still too heavy for you

Hmmm ok so would the Wilson Nblade be a better choice or what about the Dunlop Aerogel 200 ?

Re: Need Help on choosing a new tennis racket

I am now mainly thinking about the Tecnifibre 295, it has a good head size a decent weight any of you ever played with a technifibre racket, also should i have it strung at a hight tension or low tension ? atm there is a good deal on tennis nuts http://www.tennisnuts.com/ishop/677/shopscr5017.html

Re: Need Help on choosing a new tennis racket

*Update* I have brought a Dunlop Aerogel 200 16x19 string pattern. I chose this as i was trying to decide between the Aerogel 200 18x20 and the Aerogel 300 i looked at the specs and found this racket had a weight that was in the middle of the 200 and 300. i have brought one off Millet Sports, does anyone know how long it will take to come ?

Grrrrr ! Millet Sports just sent me an email saying that they are having stock problems with dunlop and so they cannot complete my order ! So that means i have to choose a different racket as all Dunlops are out of stock now (even though it says they are all in stock on the website ! )
Anyway i need your help again Which racket should i go for ? Are Prince O3 Tours any good ?
Thanks again !

Re: Need Help on choosing a new tennis racket

Would the Head Microgel Extreme Pro be good for me ?

Re: Need Help on choosing a new tennis racket

the microgel extreme pro would be much better for you than the aerogel 200.

if you are considering prince the best one would be the speedport black or speedport white pro
