Are you playing tennis with that racket you found in your parent’s or grandparent’s basement? Do you find yourself screaming at your racket, firmly believing that your shot should have gone over the net? Would you like to improve the consistency of your tennis game at a price more affordable than your local sports store can provide? If your answer is yes to any or all of these questions you’re in luck! I am an experienced tournament player who has managed tennis camps for the last five years. I have helped many beginner and intermediate tennis players, ages 5-50, decide on the most affordable tennis rackets that will help improve consistency. In this article, I will describe five tennis rackets that are definitely worth purchasing!
Prince O3 Red MP+
Although this racket was made a few years ago, this racket is one of my top recommendations for people who wish to add some extra power and consistency to their game. With a 105 square inch head size, the Prince O3 Red MP+ is not only forgiving, but also has a fair amount of control. In other words, when you aim the ball cross-court with this racket, you will not find the ball going down the line. If you’re interested in taking a closer look at this product, here is a link to the Prince O3 Red MP+ .
HEAD Ti.S5 CZ
This is an old favorite for any one who would like an incredibly light weight, powerful, and forgiving racket at a wildly affordable price of around $50. I recommend the HEAD Ti.S5 CZ to those who struggle to make contact with the ball, as well as those who want to dramatically increase the power of their shot without changing their swing. The only downside about this racket is the lack of control it offers. More precisely, this racket is best for those players who are not aiming for the lines, but rather aim the ball in the general direction of down the line, up the middle, or cross court. If you’re interested in taking a closer look at this product, here is a link to the HEAD Ti.S5 CZ .
Wilson Hyper Hammer 5.3
After reading the first two descriptions, are you looking for a tennis racket that has a bit more control than the Head Ti, but also want a racket with a larger head size than the Prince O3? If so, then the Wilson Hyper Hammer 5.3 is perfect for you. I have played with this racket quite a lot, and it offers significant more control than the Head Ti and is only slightly less forgiving. Furthermore, this racket is far more forgiving than the Price O3 with only sacrificing a little bit of control. In other words, the Wilson Hyper Hammer 5.3 is the best of all possible worlds. If you’re interested in taking a closer look at this product, here is a link to the Wilson 5.3.
