How To Pick The Right Tennis Racket

By Albert Anthony

No matter what reason you have for buying any rackets, make sure that the racket is suitable for your playing experience. Picking the right tennis racket will not only make you play better and get more satisfaction, you will also be able to have more control over your game.

Sometimes, when people failed to purchase the correct racket, they will not only suffer from bad gaming session, some will also complained on having sore shoulders, arms or hands since the rackets did not provide the control, stability and power that they needed. This is the reason why most professional players usually have their rackets to be custom-made in order to fit their personal requirements.

Since a tennis racket is slammed and put to the test each time you hit a speeding tennis ball, it is not impossible for your racket to break down even if it is manufactured by the best manufacturer of tennis rackets. Whatever happens on the court, especially when you lose a match, please control your anger and frustration. Never ever slam your racket to the ground, even if it clay court. It will keep your racket’s structural strength intact and not to mention the respect from your spectators.

Every racket will come in their own case or bag upon purchase. Do not throw the bag away. Instead, use the bag wisely. Since the bag is made especially for the racket, then keep and store your racket in the bag. Any impact or shock will be absorbed by the bag. Using a regulars backpack will only give your racket a short life and also affecting the performance of your racket.

When you want to store your racket for a long time, decide on a good location. Too hot and too cold will make your racket becomes brittle and unusable, hence causing you to buy a new one. Why not keep your racket in room temperature and put some desiccant in the racket’s bag to absorb extra moisture in the air? The extra moisture is bad since too much of it will cause the uncoated surface of your racket to be exposed to rusting and corrosion.

Next is the nylon. Nylon is one of the easiest material to find and use. The nylon strings are measured in gauges of 15 to 18. 15 is the thickest while 18 is the thinnest. The rule is, the thicker the gauge is, better durability but less feel will be obtained by the player. Nylon is easy to clean and maintain.

Kevlar is the next type of material. You may think that Kevlar is only used for the police or soldiers. No, you are wrong. If the Kevlar is good enough to protect a police’s life, then it is good enough to make the strings of tennis rackets. The advantage of this material is that it gives more durability to the rackets. This means that the rackets have longer lifespan.

Finally, polyester. More professional players are opting for this material due to its exceptional durability and also good sense of control and sensation. The strings tend to have little movement, frictions and also breakage. This is not only a good point in a game, it also gives any player a good feeling to start playing and hence, affecting their performance.
