Default Racquet recommendations?

What do you guys suggest for a player (myself) who tries to play regularly, mostly for recreation, not competition? I have always liked Wilson, but know Prince and others are good. I want something under $100, if possible. I checked out Wilson's web site and there was so much to choose from!

Marc,

I buy all my racquets used from people online. Tenniswarehouse and Tennis4you both have pretty large classifieds where people post their stuff. I usually save about $40 or so per racquet doing it like this.

If you liek Wilson (and I do too, and I like Prince) try the Wilson Hammer series. They are a great "players" racquet and should be good for the overall game.

I have a few Racquets made by Head and a few by Wilson, I enjoy using the Head ones better. Seem to have a better grip on it then the ones from Wilson. I use Head for any tournament play or just for leisure. For tennis balls its Wilson all the way, I dont use any other kind.

Better grip? Well, you can use any grip on any racquet. I wouldn;t let that sway you too much. I however have never really used a Head racquet for more than a few shots. Never really played a match with one.

I know sounds odd but yes better grip for me at least. I just like the hold on them.
