"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.   What I did was I just tried my…"

Hi Nhien, did you ever find a racquet?
At 11:15am on August 27, 2011, blackrino said…

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.
