Buying a new racket is a confusing task for most tennis lovers in particularly for beginners. You cannot try to use the new racket before buy while you cannot make sure the new racket suitable for you without play.
Here I try to share my experience.
I personally have a primary preference that is the heavier the better. Take the heaviest one you can handle.
One direct solution is to borrow the same racket from friend if available. This definitely helpful.
If you cannot find the same model from friend, I suggest you can try an alternative strategy.
Double check the specification of your target, pay attention to a few parameters.
- balance point
Then you can check if your friends got a racket with similar specification. Try that.
You should care also other parameters when trying and take those into consideration for difference.
In case you are beginners, you’d better seek advise from people with more experience as they will know better how those things will make the difference and suggest according to your level of playing.
