Due to the speed of the game a lighter racquet is ideal for most players. Racquets range from 110 grams to 200 grams. The lighter your racquet, the quicker you can react to play the ball. On the contrary, a slightly heavier racquet may give you more power. Lighter Racquets are used by players looking for superior touch and control. Heavier racquets are used by players who like to drive the ball into the back of the court.
Similar to the racquet shape, the strings used, the strings tension and stringing pattern depend on personal preference. HIgher tension strings increase control, while looser strings increase the amount of power generated. Thicker strings are more durable and enhance power and thinner strings increase your control, or feel, of the ball.
