Default What do you think of the Wilson T2000 racket ?

I would like to know what other tennis players think of the Wilson T2000 steel framed tennis racket which was mainly used in the 1970's ? It was quite a heavy racket with a small head & if you miss hit the tennis ball on the steel frame the vibrations would hurt your arm. On the other hand when you did hit the tennis ball in the center of the racket head a powerful shot resulted. Jimmy Conners had great success with this particular racket but I'm not sure of any other professional tennis players who used it at the time ? Personally I used this Wilson T2000 racket for both a "touch" & "power" game & believe it's the "greatest" designed & made tennis racket of all time. Cheers !

The best hit sound ever. A bigger sweat spot and more power than typical wood frames. Great for driving the ball but spin control a bit off. The T2000 was pretty effective if you employ flat approach shots and come in. I still have a couple that lack the plastic handle parts (a poor feature).

Thanks for your reply & I totally agree with your comments. I still remember buying my first T2000 & what impressed me most about this particular racket (apart from it's looks) was the feel of the "handle" in my hand. A lot of people say it's the handle which is the most important part to consider when buying a new tennis racket and I have to agree with this view. The unique aspect about the T2000 plastic handle is that it's "interchangeable" so you can change it to suit different sized hands. Also if you have a look at some of the threads in this forum a lot of comments relate to the weights of tennis rackets & I think there may be a trend to go back & use heavier rackets (like the T2000) judging by the feedback. Cheers !
