And I noticed that hard-hitters like Davenport and the Williams sisters use Wilson while players with more variety like Mauresmo and Molik use Dunlop. Any connection there?
Then I would suggest either a Wilson Prostaff, or a Dunlop 300G. They're difficult to wield at first, but give much more variety without sacrificing power if you want it.

I really like prince racquets, but as everyone has said demo your racquets before you buy.

Re: Choosing A Racket (Help Needed!)

I've tried out the Wilson Prostaff 6.1 and I quite like it. I get more depth and control on my shots. Only problem is that it is a bit too heavy and "stiff".

My coach has suggested that I try the nCode nSix-One Tour 90 or nCode nSix-One 95.

Re: Choosing A Racket (Help Needed!)

Demo as many as you can is the best answer.

I know that Tennis-warehouse.com let you demo 4 racquets for a week for under $30

good luck

Re: Choosing A Racket (Help Needed!)

wont help you with brand choice, but it helped me in terms of making the right considerations of technical bits involved
