    Default Racquet Reccomendation

    Ok, so hello, I just wanna ask you guys which racquet will suit me best. I have been playing for 3-4 years now. I like light racquets. I don't hit that strong... I prefer deceptive moves and am very used to fast exchanges. Still learning to countersmash. So, what racquet should I get?
    Thanks

    what type of rackets have you used in the past? do you feel your current racket(s) is(are) lacking?

    Well, I have this racquet that is already good for me, but I want a new racquet.

    I believe he was asking for the name of the racket.... I'd say a U4 AT900T would work well for what you're asking.

    What I'm trying to say is that we can recommend a better racket for you based on what you're using. You PM'ed me saying its a Prince 3UG5...but if you can provide the specs...such as head heavy or light...stiff or flexible...why you like it or not...we can do a better recommendation in my opinion.

    Actually, this racquet is already good for me, it's just that I wanna try some other racquet as well. This has been with me for soooo long already I also wanna try something lighter... (4U?)
    That was from the most recent PM I received from you and it should be easier for us to recommend a racket for you. One thing I want to know is...if you don't hit hard, why is your racket strung at 28;bs? a soft hitter in my opinion should not be using such high tension.

    I thought lower tension is for hard-hitters and higher is for those who prefer control over power...
    And I'm not really a soft hitter, it's just that I prefer doing drops more...

    This is a bit of a misconception. Typically, lower tension can generate good power at the expense of some precision but those who can already generate good power on their own string it higher in order to get good control.

    That's not what you said in your original post...regardless of the tension, at least now we know what sort of racket you've been using and easier for us to give you some recommendations.
