What tennis racquet to choose?Suggestions?
Ok, so im 14 years old and being playing tennis for like 5 yrs, just recently going back to tennis from about 4 months off. I'm play comp, and im an ok player, however, when i was 11 yrs old i bought the wilson k zen team which was a huge mistake. The racquet allows you to create the power and has an exceptional amount of spin.
I don't have a big swing, so i found it difficult to generate power.
I know i left it for 3 years, however i was blaze and naive as i was just attracted by the appearance and 'big name title' (k factor).
About my game style: I can create my own spin, but not power, so i need a racquet to assist me on that. I really don't know how to properly describe my game style, because i just jump on the court and play, besides the fact that i'm able to create spin and not power.
So, what tennis racquet should i consider buying, and how can i choose the appropriate tennis racquet for me? btw, i don't think i can hire a tennis racquet, so i'm gonna need to make a wise decision.
Thanks in advance

you probably want a racket that is about 100-104 sq inchs.
string pattern will probably be either 16x18 or 16x19.
look for "tweener rackets"
babolats and princes are probably your best bet.
Hope this helped!
Try heavy a racket with a larger head size and loose strings to give you more power. Other than that, the first thing that you need to consider when buying a racket is your grip. Check below article for tips in buying a racket.
I agree with Lara, your grip would also be one of the main factors in choosing your racket.
If you are looking to generate power you need to buy a lighter tennis racket. I am a Wilson man myself. However there are plenty of other brands out there. I would try and borrow some rackets from people in your club or from friends to see what racket weight gives you the most power. If you have a tennis coach you could ask him/her also.
