Options for Tennis racquets
« on: July 16, 2005, 05:11:01 PM »
Who out ther can give me latest skinny on racquets? I haven't played for over 15 years, and now I am going to get back to playing competitve tennis at ripe old age of 55. Up 'till I was about 40, I was an 'A' player, and #2 at the club here in California I belonged to. Both my parents were teaching pros. I have an ols school type of game, minimal top spin, more flat shot kind of strokes. Like to serve and volley. Like to think I'm an attacking kind of player, aggresive. But we'll have to see. Antway, the reasons for my ramblings, is so someone who is up on the latest racquets, can possibly help me narrow my choices. Then I could demo a few racquets to see which one feels the best. I like a solid racquet, minimal flex, tight strings. Never liked the oversize racquets with the trampoline feel when hitting. So who can help me out out there? All input would be appreciated.

Thanks, Terry

If your looking for something that a lot of people are starting to buy into would be the Wilson nCode racquets, Prince O3 (ozone) racquets, or Head Flexpoint racquets.

Althout I love the PS 6.0, it is not for everyone.  It takes consistent loopy strokes to maximize it's potential.... at least that's how I use it.

Either way I'm sure the original poster will love the way the 85 plays, but for his older arms Volkl's are a better choice (Tour 10, C10).

I use the RDX 500 by Yonex- quite a nice racket, good control, reasonable power.

Well I do not recommend the HEAD liquidmetal instinct. I regret buying it everyday.

the top grommet is kinda scratched up. Will they still let me sell it? I want a liquidmetal radical instead.

We have the crappiest demo programs here.

Uh oh, not even a recommendation to sell it here too?  You are breaking my heart!

You can still sell it with a busted racquet guard.  You can also spend the $5.00 and get a new one, or the new owner can.  :)

Post it on the for sale board here and Tenniswarehouse.com.
Good Luck on the Court!!!
