I need help finding a good serve&volley racquet, or some help making one, using lead tape or whatever.

Specifics:

- High (or medium) swing weight, enough for pace and stability on serve, volley's, and groundstrokes especilly on serves.

-head light, or still maneuverable

(I know its kinda hard to have a high SW and still be HL)

I've found nothing better for me than the Prostaff 6.1 Classic strung right up to 65 lbs. It's about 10 pts head-light, 12.6 oz overall, 16x18 pattern, and has the tried and true graphite/kevlar construction that yields fantastic feel. I'm even thinking about trying a little lead at 3/9 o'clock, since I'm sampling some other heavy, yet less head light frames. For several years despite my experiments, nothing has replaced this wonderful frame.

From least feel (most muted) to most feel: Slaz X1, PRTi, Yonex Ti-80, PS 6.1, PS 6.0, PR660, C10 Pro & PT. Many may suggest DNX 10 mid, but haven't tried that one.

That's exactly what I was looking for when I wanted to buy a new racquet, I ended up buying the M-Fil 300 and it's perfect! Exceptional for serve and volley and the swingweight matches your criteria!!

Dunlop Maxply McEnroe with lead in the handle and throat.

Great no frills racquet, very stable at the net, yet light enough to modify to increase the swingweight.

Thats my recommendation.

Either that or go for a tour 90.

Flexpoint Prestige XL. It will provide more than enough power is your flat serve to force your opponent back, giving you time to go volley. The SW is medium high and it's ok for volleys. You can always choke up to volley too.
