I am in the middle of a move right now, but I have 1) Jack Kramer (budget grey), 2) Evonne Goolagong Dunlop, 3) Spalding Pancho Gonzales. I gave away 1) Donnay Graphite/Wood, 2) Wilson Mustang. These were all bought at the Salvation Army for $3-4 each. I could've gotten a Chemold Laver, and another strange English one.
I won all my doubles matches one night against everyone with the Jack Kramer budget special. It is definitely true that you will learn tons of how to hit the ball, place the ball, stroke the ball by being smooth and long with the swing. Your backhand slice will be much, much better afterwards.
But it is not for the Fed/Nadal swing style for sure. You cannot use too much wrist because the amount of flex will not help. Your wrist or elbow will be aching from the amount of vibration wood gives off if you try to whomp it with a jagged swing.
Poly doesn't destroy the wood. I've had poly in a wooden racket for over a year now. Admittedly I strung it at 30lbs. It's kevlar you want to avoid putting in there.
I'm pretty sure all wooden rackets have shared holes. I think they're usually around 18x20 pattern, with 3 or four shared holes at the top and bottom.
OK its a old racquet That I do play with. I dont want it to Die and become a wall mount. IS 50 High? cause I dont mind 40. Im trying to make it last. Its a Pro version and I only got 1...
