When I first started playing in about 1970 (yes I am old - 46), I went to the local five and dime store and bought some wooden piece of crap for about $5. That was a good thing because I made Safin look like a choir boy compared to what I'd do to a racket after my 5th consecutive double fault. But finally I saved up and bought a ....................................Head Pro, you oldtimers may remember it as the red-throated racket. I thought I had invested in the best piece of equipment ever and I really did like it and used it for a few years before springing for a Prince Pro, the original oversized racket. I swear it took 6 months to adjust to that.
What was everyone else's first ggod racket?
