Grip the leather-wrapped handle of this racquet, and you'll wonder why you wasted your time with the cheap chipboard versions you bought at beachfront shops. They're well balanced and surprisingly light, and they swing smoothly. Since they're inlayed with hardwoods like walnut and mahogany, they look good enough to keep on display even when beach season's over. [$170; shopterrain.com]
