Dude, shhhhhh. You might upset the 12 guys in this group.
Let me rephrase my comment. I think I would look ridiculous trying to use it. I'm sure some people enjoy it and have developed very advanced ways to use it. Much respect to those who have adapted to this one of a kind weapon.
before you become critical about your remarks, why not try the stick first before judging? i would love to get my hands on one if a demo was readily available. i'm not saying this to defend the guys who play with it, but it's only fair to give it a shot first.
I think its a unique weapon for sure, however, I just don't think it's for me. It seems like it would be easier if you started to play with it as soon as you started to play tennis, but for someone like myself who has been using the standard racquet this whole time, it seems too difficult to learn and adapt to a whole new style of play. I try to imagine myself using this and it just seems like it would be a little awkward. If you ever get your hands on one JUN, I'd love to hear your opinion on it. Maybe even a video?
Good on your open mind. If you are in Southern California or Toronto Canada I could meet up with you so you could try it. As I said on the website, naturaltennis.com, " I would never go back to a single handled racket. People comment on this weird looking racket and now I see the single handled racket as odd and say " would I want to ride a bicycle with one handle. Thanks for your open view.
Hi Arianne Kim You make a conclusion so quickly? I've used the rackets for a long time. I am right handed and i've become ambidextrous. I realized within the first hour going to the wall that my right can teach my left. Playing drums, you use both hands, swimming, hand ball, basket ball and I could go on.
The word willingness is the key. Adapting can be viewed similar to a skill. I guess because I played drums for many years, I love to use both sides of my body. Isn't it healthier to exercise both sides of your body? Thanks for the reply.
It would be nice to see more people like you that have an open out look. Let me know when you are ready to try it.
I saw three separate guys at the L.A. Open carrying this racquet around in the stands. I was wondering if they were trying to get visibility to the tennis public.
I wouldn't mind trying it, but I have a one handed backhand.I can't hold two handles with one hand. lol
