Default Need a recommendation

I currently have a Head Titanium 1000 which is aging quite a bit!

I had a quick look in Decathlon (local sports store), the Wilson ones seemed the lightest and easiest to handle.

I need to be able to serve reasonably quickly so looking for more of a "power" one than control.

Cheers,

do you like what you are using? would you go for something with similar specs again? if so, then something like the wilson k zeen team fx should be quite similar

Well, demo a few racquets that appeal to you then buy the one that you like most.

What's the disadvantage of lighter rackets?

lighter rackets have less stability and are more likely to twist in your hand, especially if you are playing someone who hits the ball very hard

Hmmm ok, maybe I need a slightly heavier one then.

Just one more thing, after I play tennis I have a small shake in my right arm, it doesn't really effect me doing anything it's just annoying.

Is this down to poor damping of the racket?

it could be the racket. light rackets tend to be stiffer, so they transmit moe vibrations to your arms
