Do you prefer isometric or oval head rackets?
personally i perfer the ISO's because they have a bigger sweet spot and think can generate more power.
Which 1 do u perfer

ISO for me. Starting off I used to use the ovals, but once i switched to the ISO, couldn't go back

I like Iso's but always seem to go back to ovals for that extra something that the iso's lack.
Lets hope my new AT700 will change me switching.

Like Dill, my path is also
Oval > Iso > Oval

Always willing to try out ISO rackets, but curretnly, my top selections happened to be all Oval regular length ones.

Iso for me, bigger sweetspot but more prone to tension loss that's why i string it 2 pounds higher than my desired tension...

I just began using an ISO and I like it. So, ISO for me. I won't know when I would be switching back to oval again my only racquet is an ISO.

Oval heads only for me, please...
I am interested in further improving my swing technique and playing form. Like to earn my stripes and work hard at achieving good skills and power in my shots. Played with a MP 55 and ISO 250 Long before... switched back to oval heads regular length after my friend told me that it's better to train with a small sweet spot. I am beginning to see the fruits of my labour, so I don't intend to stop now.

Oval for me
I started using Yonex ISO but have now moved onto using CAB20MS and Carlton Rasmussen Superlite.
I like the feel of the Oval head more - i feel like it gives me more power (I do appreciate that this could all be in my mind though!!)

I use both. I prefer ISO for doubles, because there is more chance of off-center hits due to the fast pace. For singles, I can use either, but I like ovals because the shot feels more "crisp".

I like both, but
MP99 <- Iso
I guess Iso racquets under my roof still have more population....

I prefer ISO, it looks cooler well honestly though, I just couldn't use ovals again after I switched
08-23-2004, 12:04 AM #13
I think I am now totally give up my hope on ISO. Therefore, oval only...

I just realized that I can use ISOs for my off-days (bigger sweet spot), and use CABs for my good-days (smaller sweet spot, but more powerful)

Basically which ever i pull out ^_^. But if i had to pick... i'd go with ISO just for that extra comfort. Power is very nice, i rely on it alot...but in the end i know control is equally or possibley even more important than power.

Somehow I prefer the feel of the Oval-shape racket - more focus and sharp in delivering any shot.
ISO with a slightly larger frame (with more air resistance I suppose?) somehow the feel is less focus and sharp - kind of difficult to smack right on the spot. IMHO.
