Great racket!!

By Tennis Pro

from Naples, Florida

Pros

  • Great for all levels
  • Huge sweet spot
  • Maneuverability Is Great
  • Power And Control

Cons

    Best Uses

    • 116 109 For Jrs
    • Club Players
    • Great For Doubles
    • Great For Serving
    • Sr Players On Tour

    This racket goes back to the teardrop shape only in a slightly larger size. These rackets remember the club players and the senior players that other manufacturers seem to have forgotten. Light enough for great maneuverability and heavy enough to have good power and control.

    • Q:

      I am a 64 year old female, fit, 2.5/3.0 tennis player. Low to mid power swing, short (trying to be more consistent on follow through) I demoed a Wilson Cierzo Two racket with 120 sq inch head and really liked the oversize sweet spot and the bounce off the racket. The grip was too big for me and the racket is no longer available to order. In exploring oversized rackets and reading reviews, I'm leaning towards the Asics 125. Does that seem a good choice for an oversize given my personal description? I read in one review of the Asics 125 that the main strings should be mid tension, and the cross strings 5 lbs. less. Do you agree? If so what tensions does that translate to on your scale? Also, assumed the Gamma 16 or 17 string would be fine. Do you agree, and and what is the difference between the 16 and 17? Thanks, jvm

        A:

        The Asics 125 is an excellent oversize racquet to replace your Wilson Cierzo. The tension really is based on preference. If you want more power on the ball you would want a lower tension. The tighter you string the racquet, the more control you will have on the ball. Their is a lot of Gamma string available, for your skill level and racquet head size, I would recommend the Gamma Live Wire. It has excellent playability and is soft on the arms. The difference with 16 gauge to 17 is width. The higher you go the thinner the string is. So 16 gauge is more durable than 17 because it is thicker but, the 17 gauge may add more spin and control on the ball.

    • Q:

      Does this racket come in a 4 5/8 grip size? That doesn't seem to be an option in your specifications.

        A:

        That is correct. It only goes up to 4 1/2 a grip size.

    • Q:

      I am considering purchasing an ASICS 125 tennis racquet. I am a male, 55 years old and have a somewhat short swing. I would like to know the best quality of String that would make this particular racket provide the best in terms of power and control. Could you email me back and let me know if the ASICS 125 Racket would be the best for me. I am planning on entering Senior League Tour in Texas.

        A:

        Choosing a racquet is very much based on personal preference, so it's always tough to say with surety whether a racquet is right for a particular player without letting the player try the racquet for themselves. I always encourage customers to take advantage of our demo program (http://www.holabirdsports.com/demo-racquet-program) to test out some racquets before they make a purchase decision. Based on the information you provided, the ASICS 125 does sound like it could be a very good choice for you and I would definitely recommend trying it out. It offers plenty of surface area, a large sweetspot, and lots of power for players with short, compact swings. There are plenty of quality options when it comes to string. I would recommend trying something fairly soft and lively. Several good options are Gamma Live Wire XP, Wilson NXT, and Tecnifibre NRG. All three should offer fairly comparable performance, but each might "feel" a little different. Fortunately, strings aren't as big of an investment as a racquet, so it's much easier to experiment and find which works for you.
