I don't know.. I have never heard anyone said I have a big head - a normal sized hat fits fine, nothing large.

Yeah I pretty much just stuck with the Wilson ProStaff 6.0 original. Anything over 95 screws me up.

I have a lot of different sized rackets.  Two Chinese-made graphites, and a bunch of LeCoq Sportif wood ones that are probably under 88 sq. in.

I returned to the pursuit of the game, after a lengthy absence, and went with the advice that older players (and the singular case of Pam Shriver) go to larger head sizes for improvement.  Then I read on a bulletin board that it's better to play with what you were used to, in your up-and-coming years.  Seriously conflicted now... :insane:

I think it has to do with personal choice but also physical strength, hand eye cordination and so on. I work with allot of seniors and most tend to use oversized sticks but there are some who are in good physical condition that use smaller to midplus sized and a few even use the Original prostaff. So I think it has allot to do with physical conditioning.

OSU would do well with a 90 or 95, I am surprised you use a 105 sq in yo.

I use a 95.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

The Majority of the racquets I've used have been in the 115 range... but the racquet I mostly use right now is at 110.
Be the change that you seek.

My Dunlop 200Gs are 95 in. My favorite size, gives you great accuracy and strokes provided that you can supply the power.

a lot more people play with much smaller head sizes than I expected. all three of mine have been 100 or 101 i think. I was thinking of going for a 95 too as I have mentioned earlier... to play with a differnt kind I feel would help me see whats missing in my game which I can then fix, sorta like how I improved my backhand during my injury. But dmast's advice is gold too so I am kinda torn as well.

When I started playing again last summer I started out with a head size of 108 then 98 and ultimetly to 90. It was nice to progress through the different sizes and see how it affected my game. It was a little stressful at times cuz I'd get comfortable with a racquet and then switch but the 90 is much better for placement and my swing type.

P.S. Are there any nice single ladies in the age range of 22-26 that would like to date a gentleman, scholar and rennasance man from milwaukee, wi  :)~
