I was recently asked what racket type is best for a rookie- power vs control. Good question to say the least! Let's see power is good for someone to clear the net with a half swing but then you hit alot of balls over the fence. Control is better to keep the ball in play but it will hit the net a lot of times due to a poor swing. I started out with a low power racket (70 lbs) that forced me to do a full stroke and then converted to a more powerful racket once I was able to handle stroke thus working for me.
What do you guys think?
