Re: need help buying a racket

I made the mistake of not testing out a racquet once and just bought two of them. They were supposed to have been the replacement to the one I was using. I hated them with a passion. I had to unload them used after about 8 hours of play.

I then tested some racquets and found the one I was looking for.

i agree with adeegee, you definately need to test out some rackets, sone rackets look the business but really aren't. So taek the suggestion seriously.

Mate, find a place where you can test out some different rackets. Every player has different feelings on rackets only you can decide whats best for you. For example I absolutely love my liquidmetal radicals, and wouldn't swap them for anything in the world but my hitting partner absolutely hates them, and we're about similar standard.

Imo the triads are pretty atrocious. The are very light, but not in a Babolat kind of way. The weight seems to be in the neck,so it isn't good for groundies OR volleying!
And the head seems kind of too big, you wouldn't miss a volley, but I didn't find them comfortable, when i tried a friends. I would recommend the Wilson hyper prostaff 6.0 (v. old racket, if you can find one ) I think I got the last 7 in the world.

Go to tennis-warehouse.com and buy a Prince Triple Threat Warrior for $79.95. It's white, so it matches everything (as if that matters).

The tennis warehouse messageboards are also a really good place to read about racquets, but it can be a bit overwhelming there for new people.

I guess that's actually a pretty good tweener; the swing rating is 5.

I suggest a control racquet because they force you to utilize proper form in executing shots. The Wilson Prostaff Tour 95 is $100 at tennis-warehouse.com

If you prefer an oversize frame, the Head i.Radical is $90 at the same place.
