Important Characteristics of Tennis Rackets


tennis rackets

Tennis rackets are used by most sportsmen and sportswomen to hit the ball. A racket is a sporting implement made up of an aluminum handle with an opening hoop over which a tightly woven network of strings or yarn is looped tightly. It is commonly used for striking the ball in games like tennis, badminton, lawn tennis, badminton, tennis and even paneling. It is available in different sizes, designs, weights, materials, etc.

Material Of The Racket

There are many types of tennis rackets. Some of them are made of carbon steel, titanium, brass, chrome and other metals. Each of the substances imparts different physical characteristics to the implements. Some of the qualities that are imparted to the rods are the following:

One of the most important characteristics of a racket is its head size. The ultimate control advanced models of rackets have a larger head size than the traditional hand-me-down ones. The larger head size increases, the distance covered by the implement and enables better targeting of the balls. The shaft of the racket must be stiff enough to absorb the impact of the balls and not break while using it.

Weight Of The Racket

Another characteristic that tennis rackets must have is its weight. A light-weighted racket is easier to handle and deliver a powerful blow. A heavy racket tends to cause discomfort, injuries and deformation of the hands and arms. Although graphite is a lighter material than steel, it is not elastic and will not bend or break under pressure.

Most tennis rackets are manufactured from high quality graphite and high quality rubber or composite materials. Most of the leading brands use these materials in producing their products. However, all this does not mean that high quality wooden rackets cannot be purchased at reasonable prices. High quality wooden rackets can also be manufactured using synthetic materials. Synthetic tennis rackets usually weigh about half a kilo calorie per square meter when manufacturing them.

Number Of Innovations

In order to increase the performance of their products, manufacturers have introduced a number of innovations to the sport. One of these is the introduction of high stiffness in their tennis rackets. High stiffness improves their absorbing capacity. This allows more power to be generated during the swing, thereby improving the performance of the player. The introduction of high stiffness enables manufacturers to produce their products with less friction, thereby enabling them to deliver high performance even under high pressure conditions.

In addition, new technologies have been introduced to help players gain the advantage over their opponents. Some of the most popular technologies used in manufacturing tennis rackets are PGI (precision molded gears) and ERP (electrically adjustable gears). The PGI technology is responsible for providing the right amount of force to a player’s racket to allow him to hit the ball with greater force. The ERP technology is responsible for adjusting the force applied on the racket ball to allow the player to hit the ball with more accuracy.

Summing Up

Most popular tennis brands design and manufacture tennis rackets with specific features for specific conditions. For instance, some of the leading brands make rackets with larger head size in order to provide more balance. However, players with smaller head size find it difficult to hit the ball with a large head size since it makes it difficult for them to hit straight and long. In addition, most high quality rackets have larger grip and smaller spikes. Players with smaller head size and weak upper arm strength should opt for small head size rackets, which are light weight and give better grip.
