Question Best racquet under 100 bucks

Right now I'm playing with an extremely old purple pro kennex Innovator. This racquet is really heavy compared to most racquets, which was good for learning my strokes, but now its only hindering my game.

So I've got about 100 bucks that I have sitting around that I'm looking at investing in a fairly good racquet, and I would like to know from which racquet I will get the most bang for my buck.

there are lots of pretty decent rackets in TWs liquidation section. it depends on what kind of player you are, your level and how frequently you will be playing. the TiS6, for example, is a bit of a granny stick. its incredibly light and is really for someone who's swing is non-existent

Haha, I don't really need a granny stick


I've got a pretty powerful swing with good followthrough, but my serves are slow because I can't get my racquet around fast enough. I want a racquet that will help me get more topspin on my strokes and serves, and maybe a little more kick to my kickserves. I play just about every day of the week, but I'm not sure what my skill level is other than "better than him, but not as good as him"

ok, in my estimation, you should be looking for something around 100 sq inch headsize, 300 grams, even balance, open string pattern. here are a couple of frames to consider:

prince shark mp/03 shark hybrid mp
wilson n62
dunlop m-fil 400
volkl bb5

if you were prepared to spend like an extra 30 bucks then the head microgel mojo would be a good one to consider as well

Default Re: Best racquet under 100 bucks

i would always recomend trying a racket out first before you buy

dunlop 300 g
fischer pro No1

300 grams is prob about the right weight for you prob something a little bit head heavy
