It could be a mental thing, thinking about it. When I first played with the Team, I didn't think I was getting enough spin on the ball on the forehand side and my shots were often flying long. But given the Team improved other areas of my game and because I felt my forehand would soon adjust to it, I stuck with it. Since then, my forehand isn't as sharp as it was, so I've lost confidence in going for angles, preferring just to push the ball back. Now that it's the summer, I'll have more time to try back in the groove, before spending money on another racquet. Thanks, jazar.

I forgot to say, there are a couple of other racquets I know of that are similar to the Team, but most seem to have an 18/20 string patter and stiffer frames as well. Perhaps other people will know a few that aren't.

Wilson Six One Team Alternative?

A while ago, I changed to a Wilson Six One Team. While it has given me more control on my backhand, at the net and on serve, my forehand is nothing like as good as it was with my older racquet. I think the Team's 18/20 string pattern could be the issue, as I use a windscreen wiper forehand. Does anybody on here reckon this could be the case? And when buying the Team, another racquet I looked at was the Dunlop Aerogel 4D 300. It looks okay, but I'm worried the frame might be a bit stiff (I have some elbow issues, which is why I opted for the Team in the end). What are people's views on this as well? Thanks a lot.
