    Lightbulb Should I buy a new racquet?

    Hey I'm 15 years old, pretty taller than other players my age and I've played tennis for around 8-10 months. My racquet I've been playing with is a babolat pulsar lite. The babolat pulsar lite is a recreational racquet.

    A few details are here: http://www.babolat.com/english/tenni...?idproduit=270

    Drag your cursor over recreational in the website and you'll find it

    I've had an awesome coach which talks a lot :S and I play competition for J8, but I'm moving up a few divisions since we're undefeated. I'm thinking about buying a new racquet since my Pulsar Lite doesn't have a lot of power, and when I hit the ball you can hear the strings move around and makes a weird noise.

    I bought the racquet at rebel sport btw, not from a second hand shop lol and spent around $150...

    Who else thinks I should get a new racquet? Need decisions and help

    psychological change

    Either you feel the need to change your racket and then do, or don't.
    You know most of the top pro play with old rackets (Fed plays with a frame from the early 90's, painted with new model color scheme).
    This said to encourage you to play with the racket you like/need and not with top commercial rackets for the only sake of industrials.
    If you're tall and growing up faster, muscles are longer to build and a stiffer or heavier rackets might break your arm feelings and more.
    Start to change the strings...If it's not enough, try other combinations of rackets/strings before buying.
    I know a lot of young players quickly changing rackets for stiffer frames (more power) and losing their technical background, some are badly injured (using heavier frames of the pros).
    If you really feel like changing something, what about learning a new skill ? ;oD
