The Long, Long Racket


Cover Story -- The Best New Products

THE LONG, LONG RACKET

The 1970s gave tennis buffs the oversize racket; the 1980s, the widebody; and now, in the 1990s, there's the extralong. With its Max series, Dunlop Slazenger led the pack with the newest racket technology, adding 1 1/2 inches to the standard 27-inch frame. It's 125 square inches--15 more than most big rackets. At 9 1/2 ounces, the extralongs are extremely light. They're best suited to average-size men, seniors, beginners, and women who don't pound the ball and want a little more on their serve. Price: $225.
