Hi Atharva,

The new racket may be faster.  Try to play slowly to start with for the first few sessions.  Just get a lot of balls on the table slowly.  Aim to get 100 balls first and then progress from there.  This will get you used to the speed of the new racket.

Happy New Year to you.

I agree the regime pointed out by the coach....additionally check if theres a significant difference in weight of the two bats.....coz after a GKI heavy bat i shifted to a Joola Mistral and i found it too light for my taste,but ill get used to it.Also check if you have transitioned into a different handle shape...which may be an issue but its unlikely as most racquets from Adidas and Butterfly are with flared handles.Hope this helps.
