    Don't have it to hand as i gave it to my uncle as he plays less than me. I loved it though, really got me going and helped my game so much. When i was younger and poorer it was my baby :D

    My first proper racket was this (now very battered) "Browning CarboTech" - circa 1997.
    Before that, I did have a couple of "Jaguar" steel rackets though.

    My first racket was a Carlton Airblade Smash, I don't know if I still have it, all I remember is that it was rather heavy, at least 110g. With a external T-joint.
