    Default Make racket less stiff?

    I have the nanospeed 9900 and I think it's too stiff. If I bend it with my hands, will it make it less stiff? Will it be bad for the racket?

    Racket shafts will get less stiff with age and lots of use. However bending it with your hands will not do much. The only way to mitigate a stiff shaft is to use lesser tension stringing. Or sell it and buy one with a flexier shaft that fits you better.

    Do not try to make the shaft less stiff by bending it; You could end up breaking the shaft.

    Sell it to or trade it with your fellow players who like the stiff shaft.
