I've been playing tennis for the last year or so. Well actually I haven't been playing but practicing against a wall outdoors and sneaking into the local school tennis court in the evenings to practice my serve. I do intend to join a club some day.
Anyway, I started off with a €30 Head raquet that lasted about 3 months before the string broke, then a better one by Wilson in Sports Direct (€40 discounted from €70) that lasted 2 months before something went in the handle which caused it to wobble slightly and another few months before the strings snapped. I bought another one of those and the exact same thing happened with the handle after only a few weeks, and shortly after that I let it slip out of my hand and the frame crumbled when it hit the ground.
So now I'm using Wilson's hightest rated inexpensive racket (€30). I'm wondering if I should invest in a more expensive racket that might last longer or should I just stick with what seems to be a fairly okay budget one and expect to replace it every few months?
