Old reliable may never let you down, but the truth is your racquet isn’t meant to last forever. Materials used in racquet frames break down over time, resulting in loss of power and less control. Not to mention progress in racquet technology continues to improve the playability of frames to benefit performance. The Tennis Industry Association recommends that recreational players upgrade their racquets every two to three years.
