What do you guys think about Harrow Vapor racquet? I cant find any reviews on the web... I played with it for 1 day and it seems nice, but i keep on feeling that this might be more of a girls racquet.


What you think?

I'll second a lot of what aiw said. It's a head heavy and stiff racquet. I find that it has great control, which suits my game.

I have played with the Harrow Vapor (and its predecessor in the same frame, different color "Stealth") for over three years. I've played with the very same racquet about four times a week for that last two years. So, as to durability, I think it's a good racquet, but I haven't hit the wall a lot either.

Although Harrow sponsors a lot of players on the WIPSA tour and my racquet is pink and green, there's nothing girly about the Vapor...or any Harrow racquet for that matter.

I play with the Spitfire, which is the same racquet with 10-15g more. It is a great choice, good combination of control and power. It has medium stiffness (for a more flexible frame, try the Vibe or Mojo). The string pattern is great, very dense at the sweet spot, that gives you the control you usually lack in head heavy racquets. For this reason also, you don't break strings as often as with other racquets.

The only bad thing is that they are expensive. Also, they are not the most durable. I wouldn't say that they break easily, but it won't take a big hit against the wall either.
