    u'll need something with a more or less neutral balance...nothing head heavy and nothing head light.
    i recommend the cab10 tour...or ti8

    I personally would prefer to use a head light racket if i play at the net. But for me, me and my partner would switch around very frequently. So i play with a Slim 10. But if i were a lady and played mixed doubles, i'd chose a Ti-7

    Jeff, I believe that you already own THE best possible raquet that was made for doubles, you know what I'm talking about, the Airblade 900, its easy to maneuver and you can smash like a mofo. Don't waste your money on those other raquets, except for a ti-7 maybe which i think is a good raquet, but it can't beat the king, Airblade 900.

    DONT GET THE TI7! ITS PURE GARBAGE....for harder hitters anyway...aaron, henry and i tried it...we all hate it....we dont even hit that hard to begin with, but the racquet was already too flexible and head light for our tastes

    It's the player that makes the racquet, not the other way around. Ti-7 is a nice racquet, to me it's jsut as nice as a steel racquet or even my ti-10.

    By the way, what racquet are you using now? Last time I read, you were using an iso 300... Or are you still on a quest to use every single racquet imaginable? :)

    lol don, i have been using a fischer racquet for a month now.
    i like it more than the 300 cos it vibrates less and i find that i can get more power out of it with less effort.
    i'll be getting an mp100 soon as a gift tho
