Welcome to the forums!

I use the Wilson nSix-One 95

I like that racquet a lot.  Too bad they are being discontinued...

I use Babolat Pure Drive Cortex!


I buy all of my racquets used, we should be able to find these racquets for the next 3-4 years used.  After that it gets tougher and eventually you just need to start demoing other racquets.

If you liked the N 6.1 I think this is the updated verision.

I think that the updated version is a little heavier.

I am going to demo the Yonex RDS 002 and the Wilson nBlade. Has anyone played with either of those racquets?

Gamma--------------Tradition 20 I think.

You don't see too many Gamma racquets, how old are they?



I got 2 of them in 2001 or 2002 and broke one of them out of frustration in like 2005 so Scott got me a used one through this board before I was even on here.

Thats the one Scott got for me used.  My other one is slightly different.  It doesn't say how old they are or anything though??

it swings a bit heavier, feels stiffer and a bit less muted than the n6-1.  i tried one for a bit and thought it was more powerful.  it's different but i wouldnt mind switching if price wasn't an issue.

Wilson ProStaff 6.0 original


I finally transitioned to this racquet in May.  Wish I'd been hitting it since they were first made.  Control to the max!

My only advice for choosing a racket would be to pick out a racket that feels best to YOU.  Donít worry about what all your friends are using.  If your 1998 Toyota is riding great, donít go out and buy a new Hummer because all your friends are buying them.

I really really like the RDS.  Great stick.  Haven't tried the nBlade though.

Oh it's a seller. This is the wrong section. We have a for sale section.
