amateur player: choosing from 2 rackets (head, prince)

11-05-2006, 09:09 PM
I am a beginning tennis player. I took lessons a few years ago when I was a kid, but since then I havent played until this year. Im at college and getting into it again. I was just wondering if you guys could help me choose between 2 rackets: the head Ti S1, and the prince Triple threat Scream. I bought the head racket, and without knowing it my girlfriend bought me the prince on the same day. So now i have to choose between the two...both the same price. if you need to know more details about specs or whatever just let me know. which would you guys personally go for? Thanks in advnace.
