:wavey:

Just curious what rackets other MTF posters use:confused:
*I use the nTour Two [Wilson] myself;)

I`m pretty happy with the nTour Two~ especially it`s good for producing heavy top spin ground strokes, however I find the backhand [single] very hard to hit consistently, though that`s probably due to my poor technique..

Anyway the large frame size suits me as it`s quite forgiving on my misstimed & framed shots.. Justine Henin uses the same racket but with a 95 head size.


So let me know what you use [if you don`t mind] & strengths/weaknesses of the racket:angel: :devil: :confused: :confused:

That's not the appropriate forum. There's a place for equipment talk.

So racket talk isn`t appropriate for `General Messages` on tennis but Tard Wars is OK:confused: :confused: :sad:

You're a fast learner kiddo.

I'm just being nice, no need for the reaction. They'll move the thread soon enough. Go to Amateur Tennis > Tennis Equipment.

Just in the process of changing to the Head Microgel Radical. I've tried it out in my last few matches and it's quite simply the best racquet I've ever hit with.

I'm not missing a ball at the moment :lol:

It has incredible control but gives you more than enough power and spin as well. I've fallen in love with it :hearts:

The best rackets ever are the pro staff 85 and my racket used by nearly all of the touring head players - head prestige classic. Safin still uses this racket with paintjob, and i can see why. Amazing feel, flexibility, has great control and power. Really a FANTASTIC racket, too bad people are blown away by marketing these days.

Thanks for the info mate<:)

Does the Head Prestige generate lots of topspin:confused:
How about slicing with the backhand??

The Head Prestige is a control-oriented racket. If you don't have pretty good strokes, don't go there, or your ball won't bounce after the service line.

thats whats confusing me, dunno what prestige people are talking about.

I use the classic and presuming your asking about that, Ive used both the original and the mid-plus and both are dreams to slice with, feels like the whole string bed is one big sweet spot.
I dont have to have great raquet head speed to generate alot of slice with this racket, its a very relaxed stroke.

I play with sometimes flat strokes and sometimes alot of topspin depending on who im playing. (im versatile like that :p) and I can say i've had no problems generating top spin. I can get under and over the ball with assurance that its not going to float long. I can even misshit alot when hitting with topspin and the ball will be sure to drift in.

Im a big server for somebody my age, probably due to my height and reach. Its always one of the first things i test when hitting with any racket is how i serve with it. Its important to my game and this racket is perfect. Power and control, when i go for a kick serve, 99% time no problems.

Volleying is fantastic, my game has improved vastly due to my new found confidence round the net, now I know if I hit that crucial forehand out wide to the opponents back hand i can feel free to come into the net and be ready for whatever challenge the opponent sends to me, whether it is a ball to my feet or around my shoulders, I feel confident I can put it away.

I'd definately encourage you to try this racket out, Im using the mid plus which is very cheap, doesnt cost much at all. 80 dollars. I wouldnt be sucked in by marketting like alot of people I know here and off the internet.
