November 24, 2006, Newsletter Issue #143: How has racquet weight changed?

Tip of the Week

Tennis racquet technology has changed dramatically in the last 15-20 years. From the venerable Jack Kramer "woody", of the 50's, and 60's, to the T 2000 steel frame of the 70's, we now have space age technology in tennis frames. Graphite and fiberglass, used by NASA to build the Space Shuttle, have replaced many of the Kevlar frames of the 80's. They make the tennis racquets lighter and more powerful. It is one of the reasons that the game has become so fast recently. When shopping, look to the top brands like Wilson, Prince and Head tennis racquets that would utilize this tennis technology.
