tennis racquet

I'm thinking about getting another one. Can you tell me which one would be the best to buy? I have HEAD, so I'm thinking about getting Babolat.

Re: tennis racquet

Buy the racket that you play best with. The racket that feels better and plays better is the one that you should buy.

Re: tennis racquet

i'd recommend an wilson or an babolat racket.
wilson has not that big amount of different rackets (as head for example has), but the ones they build are great.
if i hadn't a wilson racket, i'd choose a babolat racket. nice handling, good for top-spin players etc.
i'm just talking about the "tour-level" rackets here, i don't know the others =)
but as always - test some rackets before buying. if u made a desicion, try out some strings on the new racket. and then start playing, and, hopefully, winning

Re: tennis racquet

Hi All ! I just bought an Aero Series Babolat. There's a rattling sound within the handle. Is that normal ?

Re: tennis racquet

if you got a rattling sound use a fawk to take the bottom of the buttcap and shake it and the foreign body should come out

babolats are great there is a racket in the range for everyone

Re: tennis racquet

Thanx ! I found out that it's normal. It's called the cortex shaft dampening system. BTW my racket is Pure Drive Roddick Plus.

Re: tennis racquet

Babolats are pieces of shit made for young guys who just like to try smash the ball with no care for feel, quality or control.

Re: tennis racquet

that is absolutely rubbish
when the racket hits something it can make the graphite loose inside the racket
it happens on a lot rackets and is very common

in general Babolats are not high on the quality spectrum, they are pieces of shit mainly made from a mixture of graphite and kevlar. Wilson, HEAD, Fischer, Yonex and probably even the majority of Dunlop rackets are better quality than Babolat.

Feels like your hitting with a crappy racket from a local sport shot. No feel AT ALL.
