My Racket, What's Yours??

I am continually interested in tennis rackets, strings and tensions of other players and the reasons why we make these choices.

Gotta say I like this new funky racket by Prince. The EX03 Rebel.
Similar spec to my rackets so will deffo give this fella a try.
If its the difference between Monfils winning in the way that he did against Nadal then he is gonna have a good year!

I have moved back to my Fischer racket at the moment.
I played yesterday with new balls and my wilson seemed way too poweful, its stiffness and the fact that the strings tension has dropped made it very difficult for me to keep the ball in.
The conditions here are rather damp with the balls slightly heavy so the wilsons power was great, but playing in dryer conditions with new balls i could really hit out with the fischer without worrying whether the ball would land in.
Ive just bought 2x wilson K pro tour (above), its slightly lighter with 96 head and the flex is in between the other two. It also has a low swing weight so Im interested to see its manouverability. A little added weight and some lively strings may make this racket a little corker! They should be here in the next week or so I will let you know how i get on with them............

looks like fun! I'm new here, so I'll share my weapons of choice. I use the n6.1 95, 16x18, also have n6.1 tour 90, pro kennex redondo 93.

I have just moved to the wilson K 6.1 95 (18x20) from my fischer below. They are very similar in spec but this racket is something special, really solid feel, control is unbelievable i was so surprised and the power amazing (this might be due also to the gamma live wire/alu power strings.
I have never been one to follow fashion so I have stayed away from the wilsons as they were so popular. How silly! This racket is superb i have finally found what i think suits me best. Even the grip is great.
A little more tinkering with the lead weight and who knows, Wimbledon, ha ha!!!

I play with the Wilson nTour 2. It is slightly head heavy, medium weight, a bit stiff, with a 95 sq. in. head. Some of the women pros use this racquet. I figure I'm not hitting any harder than Lindsay Davenport or Justine.... but they both retired... so I guess I must retire too.

Strings: Favorite string is Head C3 Rocket, great lively string just like Gamma Asterick. Also I like most poly and multifilament hybrids. Currently I use Dunlop Explosive in the mains and Dunlop Tour Performance in the crosses.

Good idea, here's mine.
Really like the Dunlop Aerogel 200, very similar to mine in spec.

Hi folks
My racket is a Fischer M Comp 95, its absolutely gorgeous I love it.
Ive overgripped it, it makes it slightly more head light and adds a little more weight. It weighs in at 360g, rather heavy for some but feels great to me. Grip size 5 (4 5/8). At the mo I have got Babalot Pro Hurricane on the mains & Kirschbaum Touch Multifibre on the crosses at 50 Lbs.
This racket feels great on serves and my backhand. The Fischers feel unique there is just something about them. I played with Head mids but this feels whippier. Its flex is less stiff than most but doesnt feel it in a bad way ie against big hitters. If you havent tried it have a go, also the M pro 98 is a fantastic stick too. Im amazed more pro's dont play with them. It has little power and a lot of control and feels good at low tension.
