Makin’ a Racket About My Tennis Racquet

September 10th, 2012 by Dee Adams

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews, Tennis Lifestyle

When I was a novice player taking lessons in college, my first racquet was actually a gift. Let me rephrase that; it was more of a hand-me-down. But hey, I thought it was so cool, my first tennis racquet. That was in 1998 and they have come a long way, even since then. I still have that ol’ thing and have used it as a benchmark when reviewing or shopping for others up until the latest and greatest left my little guy in the dust.

Volkl Tennis Racquets, Known as the the Tennis Elbow Racquets for Good Reason

August 15th, 2012 by Andy

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

Volkl tennis racquets feature some of the most advanced technology in tennis today, as well as a line of racquets that that covers all skill levels and other preferences.  Volkl’s have always been known as the “tennis elbow” racquets, because of their prevention in arm injuries due to technology that softens and dampens shock, vibration, and other feedback.  It begins with their DNX technology, which is a super-light as well as extremely strong carbon fiber material that you can find in all of their current racquets.  These fibers are created to withstand maximum force applied at all angles, giving every shot the same feel.  Having this feature in a tennis racquet means you’ll have a consistent touch with every shot, allowing your game to groove to whatever shots you’re hitting.  The DNX technology has recently been improved on, leading us to the current generation of racquets, the Volkl Organix line.

If you ask any player what their racquet brand of choice is, whether a pro or a beginner or weekend warrior, the odds are they will say Babolat. The competition isn’t very close, because Babolat currently produces the two best selling racquets on the market, which are the two racquets I will be focusing on for this article. The Babolat Pure Drive and the Babolat Aeropro Drive are incredibly balanced racquets, providing excellent control, power, maneuverability, and feel. Whether you prefer to play from ...

A Player’s Look at Dunlop Biomimetic Tennis Racquets

July 25th, 2012 by Andy

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

Anyone that knows Dunlop knows that the company has a history of producing technologically superior racquets for decades, and their newest line of racquets is no different. The Biomimetic series is their current line, and if you break down the word Biomimetic, then you`ll see the “bio” refers to things found in the natural world and “mimetic” is another way of saying mimic, so essentially, these racquets take the form of things found in nature…...

Tennis Racquet Review: Wilson BLX Six.One 95 (16x18)

July 18th, 2012 by Mark Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

I have played with Wilson frames for much (most) of my time as a tennis player; many more years than I care to count at this stage in my life. And I am predisposed as a result to always give any Wilson product a serious hit just on general principle. For a few years though with the whole n-Code, let’s put out a thousand frames every 18 months, I was wondering what the real plan was at Wilson. This season…

Tennis Racquet Review: Prince EXO3 Warrior 100 (MP)

July 11th, 2012 by Mark Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

I have to say that I don’t really understand the Prince design process or their marketing plan. Maybe the biggest issue is that the latter drives the former. The Prince EXO3 Warrior is obviously a very big deal to this company. The racquet is used and endorsed by the brightest young American star player; John Isner. And it is obvious from the magazine ads in different tennis publications and…

Showing Your Tennis Racquet The “Love” It Deserves

May 1st, 2012 by Courtney

When you hear the world “love” on the tennis court you can only hope that it is referring to your competitor`s score rather than your own, but there is another “love” that tennis players sometimes forget about… love for your tennis racquet! Unlike the old wooden tennis racquets…

Which Wilson BLX is Right for You?

April 29th, 2012 by Andy

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

The Wilson BLX line of racquets is the most technologically advanced to date, and that is because of the use of Basalt.  If you don’t know what basalt is, it’s a volcanic rock that provides a material that is excellent with shock absorption, and is also great with giving feedback on your shot, meaning you can feel the ball off your racquet in the best way possible.  This may seem like a drastic shift…

What makes a tennis racquet a tennis racquet?

April 27th, 2012 by Andy

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

There is a reason you can’t play competitively with a racquetball or squash racquet, so I’m going to tell you the features of the racquet that make it specifically for tennis. First off, is the length; all racquets are 27 inches long, with the few exceptions being plus size racquets, which can reach up to 27.5 inches. The main components of that length are the head…
