Need help with new racquet. Babolat?
1st some personal info. Beginner. I'm 39. 10 years without playing. Now in Florida.
Old racquet Price Response 110 . Maybe 14 years old. No weight info on the racquet. 5 years since last re-string.
I got for Christmas a 4 lesson present from my wife at a local C.Club & since then I'm playing 4 times a week . I love it. 1 day lesson/ 3 days games. And I'm learning fast.
The Pro in a nice way told me that racquets get tired over time and loose some of their good qualities. In other words , It's time to get rid off that dinosaur & he said to look for a oversize /11 oz./27in.long.
I like the Babolat line and I don't want to buy & learn again on a huge racquet. And in a couple of month have to buy a smaller racquet again.
Can I ignore the oversize recommendation and force myself to learn on a 100 in. racquet? Like the Pure Drive or AeroPro Drive.
Thanks , and please let me know what do you think.
I want to see everybody's opinion.
