Top 10 Best Tennis Racquet Brands

A great tennis racquet is the ultimate on-court partner. It needs to feel like an extension of your arm - powerful when you need a booming serve, precise when you're threading the needle with a passing shot.

This list features the biggest names in tennis, the racquets loved by the pros, and the underdogs that deliver amazing performance even if you're mainly crushing it on the weekend.
The Top Ten
1 Wilson

Wilson is amazing! I have the Wilson Blade 101 Lite, and I am loving it. Wilson provides the most touch of any other racquet on the market. Wilson is the best at giving the player more control than any other racquet. Babolat, to me, is a good racquet but is too bulky and gives you too much power, making you lose control.

I find Head okay, maybe third on my list, but I find the racquet too ordinary and it doesn't excel at some particular aspect of tennis as Babolat and Wilson do. Prince, to me, is horrible. My top five would be:

1. Wilson
2. Babolat
3. Head
4. Yonex
5. Volkl

Volkl, to me, is not that bad, and I don't know why it isn't in the top 10. Check Volkl out.

2 Head

The Head Graphene XT Instinct MP is one of the best rackets I've ever come across. It shows amazing control without sacrificing power and speed.

One of the most versatile racquets for the advanced player as well as intermediate players, it does exactly what a tennis racquet should - feel like an extension of your own arm. Brilliant.

This brand is great at both the net and the baseline, while Wilson is mainly good at the baseline. It, excuse me, is not good at the net.

Also, Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova, two of the best tennis players in the world right now, both use Head racquets.

3 Babolat

Babolat Pure Aero 2019 is the ultimate weapon for baseliners. The modern game you play has literally only a couple of volleys. The rest of your match will be baseline rallies. Babolat gives you the power and spin you need to attack and damage your opponent.

Flimsy, poor Wilson racquets don't offer as much power and spin as the Babolat racquets do. Some critics may say that the Wilson Clash has revolutionary technology and is ahead of its time. I've playtested the Wilson Clash 100 Tour, and it felt different but not revolutionary. In the end, Babolat is way better and is much ahead of Wilson.

The Wilson Pro Staff needs added power. If they add power to the Pro Staff, I'm happy to claim it as my racquet of choice. But without question, Babolat is best for this time.

4 Prince

I have used Prince racquets for 25 years. Prince offers a wide range of racquets for the beginner, the intermediate player, as well as highly ranked high school and college players. Prince racquets allow players to hit with power and spin, and develop consistency with their strokes.

The bottom line is that Prince makes quality racquets for every type of player at all levels, from beginners to pro players. I have been a loyal customer for over two decades because they make a quality product!

5 Dunlop

I've been using Dunlop rackets ever since high school. I love the power and control you get with Dunlop, especially on serves. The light frames make volleys much easier as well.

I've had a great experience with a variety of Dunlop rackets since the age of 11, constantly finding a perfect upgrade every six months. They are affordable, high-quality, and light.

I used Prince and Wilson, and I think Dunlop is the best of them. Prince is heavy, while Dunlop racquets are very light.

6 Slazenger
7 Adidas Adidas AG (stylized as adidas since 1949) is a German multinational corporation, founded and headquartered in Herzogenaurach, Bavaria, that designs and manufactures shoes, clothing and accessories.

9 Yonex

Yonex is from Japan, and you know Japan has great technology that they've invented, which isn't found in any other country! I currently use the Ezone 98, and the technology is impressive with the isometric feature.

Also, Yonex is the number one brand when it comes to badminton, and they have the best-looking rackets in my opinion. Yonex is my favorite brand, even more than Head.

I played with a Babolat frame for about a year and a half back when I started playing tennis. I switched after that to a Yonex and I absolutely love it. It has better touch and feel than Babolat, and better power and spin than Wilson. Truly the best of both.

10 ProKennex

Developed by scientists with medical-grade technology for reduced shock and arm stress, this is the most comfortable racket on the market. Best when paired with Polyfibre Black Venom, Black Venom Rough, and Panthera strings.

Excellent all-around. Most comfortable racquet out there, with a nice mix of control and power.

The best racquet ever. For big games and the best players.

The Contenders
11 Artengo

Given the price range and quality, I would definitely recommend Artengo. Good for occasional and beginner players to start hitting the ball.

I have played with this racquet for a long time.

Good price and awesome racquet!

12 Volkl

Volkl, like Dunlop, Donnay, and Pro Kennex, makes racquets that are comfortable for your elbow, wrist, and shoulders. I would rather play with one of these than any of the major brands.

I would recommend that people who use one of the prominent brands should try one of these.

Great rackets. I just got the V Feel 8, 285 grams. Splendid materials, wonderful control, the ball goes exactly where you want. Amazing performance. Probably the best rackets!

Great feel and control. But you have to bring the power. They offer a variety of racquets for different levels of play.

13 Tecnifibre

Tecnifibre racquets give lots of feel. Personally, I wouldn't recommend this racquet, but their strings are amazing. Their new Black Code 4S is amazing - very durable with power and extra spin.

14 Pacific

Excellent spin. I love its design. Excellent for beginners.

15 Donnay

I've had my Donnay racket for one year. It is fantastic! It has lots of power and control, which for me is a winning combination. I have not had to change anything about this racket, and I hope I don't have to.

I don't think I will have to anyway because it has withstood a big beating. So basically, Donnay rackets are great!

I really love Donnay. I wear their socks every day because they are the best. This tennis racket should be at the top as it should be the best, as it is made by Donnay.

Excellent new rackets that address the risk of tennis elbow.

16 Gamma
17 Vortex

Strong construction. Unique racquets with awesome spin. Best I've ever played with.

The wider string pattern gives the ball extra spin and more power!

The best on the market. If you can get your hands on one, do it!

18 Cosco
19 Boris Becker Boris Franz Becker is a German former world No. 1 professional tennis player. He was successful from the start of his career, winning the first of his six major singles titles at age 17.

Boris Becker London is for powerful, aggressive players!

20 Kamachi
21 Snauwaert

The Snauwaert racket offers a lot of versatility, unique design, balance, comfort (less shock), maneuverability, control, power, and spin.

23 Li-Ning
25 Mantis

Mantis is a great racquet with huge power and great control. It is a relatively new brand, so not very well known.

It is made by the ex-owner of Dunlop, and I reckon in a few years, everyone will be using Mantis.
