Hey everyone, I'm just getting back into playing and have no idea how technology has changed since 1991 -- when I was last in the game. I vaguely recall that I had an oversized Head racquet that was…Continue

"Hi Ivan, TW's demo program is pretty inexpensive, so I don't believe the shipping costs are credited towards purchase. I got more information from TW, that the strings they use are typically ones provided by the manufacture, synthetic. If…"
"The thing about demoing rackets is that you will need to purchase rackets from them at full price if you don't want to lose your credit. I guess that's okay too, but there are better alternatives.

"I like dudley's comments. I would like to add that the aeropros (Nadal) are more spin friendly while the Yonex e-zones offer more pop for flatter hitters. So maybe try both and see which suit your game a little…"
"I agree with the comments you have received. Joe B mentions demo, and that is what I'd recommend too. Most shops have a program, fees are credited to a purchase. Try Tennis Warehouse online. They let you demo up to 4 racquets at a time, for…"
Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I played in high school (ahem, 20 years ago) and a bit in college, but didn't really keep it up. I'm here to find folks who'd like to rally. I'm mostly interested in getting a good workout, enjoying sportsmanship/ comraderie, building community, and (hopefully) improving my game (ultimately, not about winning or losing to me, but whether I, personally, feel good about how I played)

you got a lot of very good information and maybe some advance shop talk even some wisdom of words too.
here is what i did recently. i started with the racket head 100 square inches i found that a head that size require more skill on the players part. than i looked at the oversize head some pros use 110 square inches.based on this i knew i would be happy and effective with 107-109 sq inches, that range is a perfect fit for me.i got the 107sq in size head strung it with natural gut for power and lovin how much better i can play.
