    Default To BC member "Gold-"

    Lately all your post are about which racket is stiffer or better. How about this. You answer these following questions and we will try our best to recommend you a racket.

    - What is your playing style?
    - What is your budget?
    - Are you a serious or recreational player?
    - What BP do you want? Heavy head, even balance or head light?
    - What stiffness do you want? Extra stiff, stiff, medium, flexible or extra flexible

    haha...

    & I thought I was the only one getting a little irritated by his constant revival of older posts and hi-jacking/starting threads about racket comparisons...

    I think he just wants to be absolutely sure that he is buying the correct racket.

    Gold-,

    Do take some time to read:
    - How to ask for racket recommendations; and
    - Kwun's excellent article about how much the racket really matters

    They are both sticky threads and shouldn't cost you too much time since you are digging out threads from ages ago...

    I personally believe the order should be Shoes, Clothing, String, Grip, and lastly Racket because wrong/bad fitted clothing causes lots of discomfort and can be outright dangerous (a badly fitted socks costs me my left ankles).

    What i believe most is - technique.

    Everyone and anyone can dress up like a professional player, shoes, shirts, rackets ect.
    What matters most would be how you play that really makes people think that you are one hell of a player.

    You can play barefooted, use a low end racquet with it's default rubber grip. Low tension strings. No problem. So as long as you are always constantly improving, always keen to win and a good sportsmen, people would call you back to play with them the next time.

    I believe he should head down to any shop and hands on to let him 'feel' whether the racket is suitable for him or not.

    Gold maybe you can join some of the groups and ask to see if u can try out some of the players rackets. There is bound to be someone who has a racket that suits you.
