Best Racquet - Mild Experience
 
Hi all,

I play about once/twice a week. I played with a cheapo racquet I payed 60 bucks for (Head TI 2000) for a couple of years. I wanted to step it up a bit and I bought a Head Microgel Prestige Mid Racquets w Kirschbaum at 54lbs.

I bought the above racquet to sort of force myself to develop the skills and experience to use the racquet in my advantage. I definitely thought wrong, I played with this racquet and lost a lot of games and had no control on the court. As soon as I went back to the head ti 2000 racquet, I started winning games and I felt like I had a lot more control and power of the ball with this cheap racquet compared to the pro racquet. Also my serves improved huge.

So here is my dilemma...I possibly want to try another racquet...sort of in between the two that I have...maybe a racquet with a slight upgrade over the TI 2000 to determine if it will give me a slight edge over my current cheap racquet. Also, I heard theres racquets that help avoid tennis elbow with absorbion, etc...I would like that technology built into my new racquet.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

you could go for something like a head radical. its a little bit down from a prestige; it has a larger headsize and is lighter. its also a very soft flexing racket, so its arm-friendly.

you could also look at something like the prince ozone tour. its a bit heavier than the radical but lighter than the prestige and due to prince's ozone technoogy, its much more forgiving than any other similar racket. the ozone tecnhology also helps take away a lot of the vibrations at impact.

if you're not looking to spend too much, then go for the liquidmetal radical mp. if the cost isnt really an issue, then go for the youtek radical mp

I bought my brother the LM radical MP and he loves it. I have hit with it and it is a steal for the price.

Half of the guys on my tennis team have the Wilson Hyper Hammer. Best of all, you can get it for under $70 now, good deal if you're looking for a racquet that handles well.
