also putting on a good overgrip can really change/improve a racket,
if you have big hands a small grip size will be really annoying,
(allowing the racket living a life of its own inside your hands)
so in order to get the best out of the racket it would be smart to build up the grip and find a grip tape that you feel comfortable with,
personally all i normally need is one wilson pro overgrip and i am good to go, the blessing of having medium size hands

ferris69,

Actual length of string used is typically 27-29ft (~ 8.5-9m), with an extra 0.5m for the stringing process. String sets are usually sold in 30-32ft (9-9.7m) lengths.

There is no such thing as a "best racquet" in general. However everyone has a "best racquet" to suit their playing needs and style.

My "best racquet" tends to be slightly head light or even balanced, oval head shape of either 470 or 500sq/cms. The grip needs to be rounder as opposed to rectangular and the racquet needs to have quite a stiff material (but not too stiff) to give the correct amount of feedback in my shots.

I find that this narrows the choices down to:

ICE or Aerogel Dunlops

Grays Powerflow Elite

Possibly the new Black Knight range (but yet to try them)

Possibly the Sabre Tour 2.0 (but yet to try one)

I don't tend to get on too well with Prince racquets, but the More Dominant feels better than the rest. Wilsons don't quite feel right. Head racquets have strange feeling grips (too rectangular).

 

So, as Rita said, best bet is to take a look through the content tabs and also speak to people in your local club. Try as many different brands and styles of racquets that you can and go with whatever "feels" right for you. One very important thing to note is that Most Expensive does not always mean Best For You! You don't always have to spend over £100 on a racquet for it to be great to play with. Given everything I've written above, it might interest you to know that my racquets cost me £42 each delivered where as friends of mine spend £110 on the top of the range Prince models which I cannot get on with at all! It really is all down to personal choice!

Cheers
