Racquet Suggestions? Please Help!

09-13-2006, 06:45 PM
I've just decided that I would like to take up the game of tennis. I have played played before, but not really competitive, and I'm not very skilled. I'm a beginner but I am planning on getting lessons and such so that I can further my skills (or just get some skills). So obviously the first step for me would be to buy a racquet. The racquet I played with before I really had no idea what it was, but it wasn't oversized. I was just wondering what you guys would recommend. I'm not really a big guy, but I am pretty athletic. All the racquets I see this days are those huge ones that you barely have to even hit the ball for it to go flying. For some reason I just don't think that would be the best for me, but then again I really don't know that much.

Here are the things I was wondering:

Head Size:

Company and Model (I kinda like Prince):

Thanks for your time!

I was looking at racquets and I like this one. Would this be any good for me?

I have not personally hit with a Shark, but I have heard many good things about it. I would suggest Demo-ing a few racquets before commiting. Your local tennis shop should have a demo program.
