    Thumbs up 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

    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.

    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.

    Default 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.

    Default 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
    ISO-TIS <-Iso
    Ti-10 <-Iso

    Cab30MS <-Oval
    Cab20P&22 <-Oval

    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

    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.
