Best racquet for control and comfort (vs power)

08-07-2006, 10:42 AM
Hi all,

I've just spent an hour or so practicing my serve, and as usual, my wrist aches.

I'm hitting with a Wilson Hyper Hammer 4.0. Could the top heaviness of the racquet be unduly yanking my wrist on the follow through, thus causing the pain?

If so, would I be well advised to try out some more evenly balanced racquets?

Any recommendations?

Many thanks in advance,

If control and comfort is what you seek, pick up a Head Liquidmetal Radical. I have been following Agassi's raquet progression(Ti Radical --> Liquidmetal Radical), and I've found them to be very well balanced, low on power, lightweight, and comfortable. Plus, its only $80 new.
