Head i.Radical

All Head raqcuets

Just one word of warning.. raqcuets aren't cheap Wink So if you're going to splash out money on an expensive one similar to Andy's make sure it's good for YOUR play. Just because Andy uses it, doesn't mean it's excellent for all people. Rolling Eyes
Personally.. i don't like Head.  dontknow Wilson for me.  goodjob

I have Andy's racquet as well - the Head iRadical. Overall it's a great racquet for me, but like David said only buy it if you have a large backswing as it does require you to generate a lot of your own power. The control is excellent though.

I also use similar strings to Andy - Natural Gut crosses, and "Big Banger" main strings. It really is worth investing in some decent strings as the one's they put on in the standard shop version won't be of decent quality. I also use a Babalot Overgrip too.

They're not a cheap racquet - but you can get some decent deals on them now as they've been out for a few years. I bought mine from Tennis Warehouse in America, but if you buy one from them and get it shipped to the UK be warned that you'll have to pay hefty import tax.

The iRadical is classed as a "players" racquet which maybe seems to suggest that only very good players need to apply, but I'm not that good and I've found it fits my needs well. It's one of those raquets that forces you to play your best - and all the better for it IMO.

Hope that helps a bit.

If youd like to try out a decent Head racquet and still more of a beginner, try a Head x.i5 (OS)its very forgiving and because its not the newst model Head has had out at the moment, will probably be a few pound cheaper- but is still a very good racquet. It's an S5 which means it concentrates mor eon power than anything else.
I played with it when i was just starting out and i got on with it very well.
Then maybe as you get better move onto the i.Radical.

Another brilliant racquet to start off with is an older version of the Babolat Pure Drive (OS) which has the same benefits as the Head x.i5. its probably going top be a little more expensive but if it's quality yourte after its certainly one to consider.

Hope this helps! Smile

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Don't be fooled by the rackets the pros appear to use - they are often set up radically differently from those you can buy in the shops. In extreme cases, a player will use a racket from another manufacturer and have it painted up to look like his sponsor's racket. This is something I suspected of Henman for a long time - I mean, who in his right mind would jeopardise his career with a Slazenger Pro-Braided?

Ane yes, Top Spin, Head make horrible rackets, IMO. Find the teensy-weensy sweet spot (or sweet shop, as my daughter says) and you're laughing. Anywhere else and you look like a beginner. It's Prince for me.
