Tennis racquets for tennis elbow in India?

Postby admin » 13 Jul 2012, 13:11

Hi

Anyone aware of tennis racquets / rackets that are good for tennis elbow which are available in India?

Parameters that need to be considered while choosing a racquet if you have a tennis elbow that I found from some the websites are:
- Low Stiffness
- Head Light
- Soft strings
- Low String Tension

Can anyone please share their findings in this regard here?


Some of the information on these websites might be old

The following link suggest that softer strings - specially natural guts significatly reduce the amount of vibration that travels to the handle.
It also suggest, Wilson K Three FX racquets and Wilson Triad line of racquets are designed for people with elbow problems.

Prince racquets usually have a low stiffness rating.
Dropping the string tension also helps. Dropping string tension leads to more power but less control on the shots. So you have to find an optimum tension for that.

Strings best suited for players with tennis elbow / wrist problem are:

Babolat Origin 17 String
Babolat Tonic + Natural Gut 16 String
Babolat VS Team Natural Gut 17 (1.25) String
Babolat VS Touch Natural Gut 16 String
Dunlop Hexy Fiber 16 String
Head RIP Control 16 String Natural
Prince Premier Touch 16 String
Technifiber NRG2 16 String
Technifiber NGR2 17 String
Technifiber X-One Biphase 16 String
Technifiber X-One Biphase 17 String
Wilson Natural Gut 16 String
Wilson Natural Gut 17 String
Wilson Optimus 16 String Silver

Yonex Ezone series racquets:
DR 98/DR 98 Lite
AI 98/AI 98 Lite
are good for tennis elbow.

Prince racquets also have less stiffness and a perfect for people suffering from tennis elbow.
