Just a couple weeks ago, I played in the Leveriza Tennis Cup as I shared with you guys before. Today, I thought it would be interesting to go into the tennis racket I used in this tournament. As most people know, the tennis racket is the most important piece of equipment you can own as a tennis player.
Your choice of tennis racket changes everything about you play. From the amount of power you can generate to the amount of spin you can put on each ball, your choice of tennis racket is important.
Currently, I am using the TenXProXcalibur tennis racket. TenXPro is a unique tennis brand that offers only one line of tennis racket: The Xcalibur series. All TenXPro rackets incorporate a technology called UniFlex which means the entire racket flexes as one unit.
Most tennis rackets don’t flex as much as the Xcalibur does. In fact, most tennis rackets from brands such as Wilson and Head, tend to flex only in the head area of the racket. In a TenXPro racket, the entire racket from the top of the head to the bottom of the grip flexes.
This makes hitting the tennis ball with an Xcalibur racket feel very smooth as the vibration goes through the entire racket. For people with tennis elbow, this racket could help. Well, that and learning how to wear an elbow brace.
Now, when I was searching for a tennis racket, I read a lot about how to choose a tennis racket that best fit my style. I found that there were a couple of things that were the most important: length, head size, and weight among others.
Length is important because it changes your motion when hitting the tennis ball. Head size is important to consider because generally, the larger the head size, the more power you can generate. It is also easier to hit the ball in the sweetspot with a larger head size. The weight of the tennis racket is also important to consider before you play. If you get tired quickly because of the weight of the tennis racket, you will not play well. Thus, its best to find a tennis racket that has an appropriate weight for you.
These characteristics led me to narrow down my search for a tennis racket to the TenXPro tennis brand. Along the way, one of the resources I found most helpful when I was looking for a new tennis racket was Racquet Sports Center. I’ve spoken to Julian, who’s the writer of the blog and an experienced tennis pro. He pointed me to look at some of the best tennis rackets available today.
Ultimately, I liked playing in the tennis tournament a couple of weeks ago. And as I played my matches, I knew my tennis racket would be there with me. If you or anybody you know needs a new tennis racket, I would recommend looking through all of the material at Racquet Sports Center. Julian will also be in the comments answering questions if you have any.
