    Looking For A New Racquet

    Hi..
    New Here
    But Im looking for a new racquet..
    I made the varsity team at my school and Im playing second doubles, were one of the top teams and the county and Im trying hard to keep that going..
    -Right now I have Prince Tour Diablo MidPlus
    --Its a good racquet
    ---I like the weight and how it strokes from the line
    ---But its really subpar at the net, and I could use a little more spin from the line, and a little more pace on my serves

    Im looking at every and any brand
    --Some of the Dunlops look pretty nice, but I dont know where to start..
    Any advice would be appreciated thanks

    i wish i could help you, but im very new to tennis. i could give you reviews on several old rackets i found gathering dust around my brother's garage, but that wouldnt really help. it should be interesting to see what people recommend.

    Dunlop Five Hundred Tour or Four Hundred Tour. Perfect, there you go.

    im gonna have to get your advice on a new racquet. my head ti.5 is way to light. the thing im somewhat confused about is weight distribution and its effects on different styles.

    I'd go for Wilson.
    They are probably the best.
    Very easy to control and handle.

    Talking Demo racquet

    You just have to demo or, you will end up with something you wont like.
    When you find something thats for you study the racquet specs. This will give you ideas for the future

    I would recommend the Prince Speedport Black. I used that for a year and it is great on volley and serves and also brings a lot of spin on Groundies.
    Where are you located?

    Maybe you can have a look on this :
    They ship stuff all over there world.

    I find the Wilson K Factor K Sting to be a beautiful racquet for spin and at tne net.
    Easy to use.

    I agree with haretrigger. You really need to go test some out and see what feels best. Recommendations are great, but you really need to determine for yourself what will work best for you

    Honestly, if you've just started, any decent $20-$50 racket from a local sports store will do. At least, that's what I started out with, and I don't totally suck, so it can't be too bad.

    Anyway, if you've just started, it doesn't make sense to spend a lot of money on a racquet when you don;t know if you're ready to commit to the game or not.
