Hey guys, basically I've been playing tennis since i was around 4 years old. Would say im an intermediate player. But shamefully, I've never bought a tennis racket for my self. My brother and my dad are both avid players and i always get their hand me downs. For about a year I've been playing with a pair of Head Ti.Fire rackets. Recently discovered there a 'Swing Style' index number on it. Telling me that its a 'L1' style. Iv tried googling it to find out how this index works and what L1. Represents with no luck? I play a flat double handed backhand with a full swings. And forehand i take it short with a fair amount of top spin. Is this the right racket for me? Any help would be much appreciated!
I was demoing rackets for a while... I probably went through about 10-20 sticks, but when I picked up the Roddick Babolat Pure Drive Plus - I never looked back.
It's a bit stiff, and good for players from 3.5+ ranking. I think you will like it if you try it... they have even newer models now I think - but I'm still in love with the three rackets I bought 3 years ago!
