    What do you think of PACIFIC X FORCE? A good friend of mine can get me a great deal but you dont include it in your list so that makes me doubt.

    Thanks a lot for your great website

    Hi from Spain and thanks for your wonderful website

    One quick question. I am struggling with tennis elbow and a good friend of mine offers me a great deal for 3 PACIFIC X FORCE that he says are great for elbow.

    What do you think? Its not in your top 10 and that makes me doubt.

    I glad that I was helpful, I am confident that combination of racquet and string will help. The only other suggestion is that if you are still having any problems try reducing your string tension

    Thanks Thomas–before getting your reply, I did a lot of research and bought a Prince EXO Tour (100) 18×20. I’ve read mixed reviews on whether the 16×18 or 18×20 is better for topspin, feel, etc. Very confusing to read mixed reviews between the two–but all reviews praise the feel. I went with Babolat VS natural gut strings, at 58lbs. I’m assuming that will be as good as it gets for my arm, and I’ll adjust to the racket as need be. Let me know if you have further suggestions on string/lbs with the 18×20 for a 4.0-4.5 topspin baseliner. I was worried I might have to quit tennis–but I’m hoping this set-up will save me.

    Hard to say, they are both great racquets for your arm. You should try both , most people would find the Dunlop Biomimetic 200 easier to use and get used to.

    I think you would benefit from a switch in racquets, if you stick with the Prince Ex03 line you could look at the Prince EX03 Tour 16 x 18, which is a lot more flexible, more weight and has excellent all around ratings.

    The Wilson Steam 105S would be pretty bad for your arm due to mainly to its high stiffness and fairly lightweight. The best arm friendly racquet I know that is also great for spin is the Prince EXO3 Tour (100) 16 x 18

    Great website! I just started playing regularly again after many years. Bought a Wilson Steam 105S, use Black Widow strings, at 60 lbs of pressure. I hit amazing topspin with this set-up, and my kick-serve really kicks. Unfortunately, I’m developing golf and tennis elbow. Two questions — How bad is my current set-up? (In other words, using your rating system, how bad is this?) I’m hoping my set-up is really bad for TE, since, if so, switching my set-up could be a quick-fix (in addition to what my physical therapist tells me to do). Second question — what combination of racket/string/lbs would you recommend for a 4.0-4.5 baseliner who loves spin? I don’t want to lose the spin!

    Hi, great website. I have been struggling with tennis elbow for months even after going to an orthopedist, wearing a brace and getting cortisone shots. I currently play with the Prince EXO3 Warrior 100 and I was wondering your thoughts on that racket. Do you think a switch to one of the rackets you have listed would provide much benefit? I am currently a solid 3.5/decent 4.0 player.

    Hi Thomas, thanks for the prompt reply…you’re doing a great job. One more query bettween the dunlop biomimetic 200 and 200 tour(slightly heavier at 12.6oz strung wt) which one do you recommend… i know heavier rackets are better at absorbing the shock…so help me please …thanx.

    I am back to playing tennis at a frequency of 2 to 3x per week for the last 2 months after a 10+ yr hiatus. I’m in my 30s and 4.5 rated. I’m using the Extreme Pro 2.0 strung with Yonex poly tour pro 125 at 46 lbs. I do not have tennis elbow issues but I am feeling soreness in my triceps and biceps n back of my shoulders.

    My question is whether it is racket related or normal aches from the lack of tennis? I don’t recall ever felling these soreness when i was in my teens. I am wondering whether I should change racket, possibly graphene speed pro or something else. How do I alleviate these soreness?

    Thanks
