Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and I need some advice from all the experienced tennis players out there. I have always used a prince racket since I began playing tennis many years ago. Now has come the time when I need a new racket! I plan on sticking to Prince... I was researching the MORE series and i came upon the Prince MORE Attack 920 MP (Same one Sharapova uses ;) ). Anyways, I was reading some of the feedback from the people who used this racket and a lot of them complained and said: "The Approach is light and nimble at net but it would do better with some more heft in places." <- Many people complained about it being light, but it weighs 11oz. (strung). Now, when I compared this to other rackets, it was heavier so I dont understand why this racket is receiving bad feedback.

OK thanks in advance, any help would be appreciated. Give me advice!

Go to any reputable pro shop and ask to test it. It usually cost about $25 and they'll let you test a number if racquets until you find one which works for you.

ramz16, a racket is a racket, just get any one. If you have trouble with your new racket, it's not because its a crappy racket, it's because you suck ass
