Liquidmetal Prestige. Just happen to have one for sale.

Also RDX500 or RDS 001 might a good fit for you.

Good luck.

Check out my thread back when I switched from the PD+ to the 6.0 95:

And then on my switch from the 6.0 95 to the 6.0 85 (only a couple weeks after I switched to the 95):

If you want my advise, switch to the 6.0 85. The redondo is another good stick. I've not a fan of those flexpoints, and the n61 95 has no feel.

how long did it take to adjust to the weight and balance differences?

The FXP Prestige MP is a nice frame. Theres always people who never try it and say they suck. It's stiffer than the other Prestiges which helps in todays power game. Add a leather grip and you will have no problems with it.

But you hit SW so the FXP Rad Tour would be a better choice. (16x19 not 18x20)

N6.1 is good for serves and volleys.

I went from the APD+ to the Flexpoint Prestige MP just fine. I am so glad that I did it. I do not have as much power or spin but the control is so much better that this was unquestionably the best equipment change I've ever made.

Pick the HEAD FXP Prestige Mid-plus (not the smaller mid). It will reward you with power when you hit well but still give you control when you don't. It has good weight, balance and is a great player's racquet.
