:) hey guys im back and i havent been on in a couple months since i got my stringer and all, but hi =] anyway im a junior player switching from the pd cortex standard but i started to grow and stuff so now i need a slightly heavier racket, or something with slightly less power, ive narrowed it down to these 4 to demo but i might just try all 4 to see the differences. im basically an all baseliner, but i would like to try to go to net soon because im going to higher age groups and stuff, but i also love spin lol =] i use a kick serve for second serve and sometimes for first just to get it in, otherwise the traditional flat smack =p anyway i hope u guys can help me =X ill give u the pd link then the 4 rackets link:

If you're moving from the PD, I'd say go with the Extreme Pro. I've hit wit both the PD and Extreme Pro. The Extreme Pro is noticeably flexier, but still provides that solid, stable feel. While I would never consider playing with a PD full time, I'd definitely consider the Extreme Pro. Out of the 4 rackets, the Extreme Pro will be closest to the PD.

k thx, theyre all just so close though lol if u look at rds002 tour it shows extreme pro and 03 tour as similar rackets the k factor is obviously the lighter one, but it still just seems like a good choice to try

p.s. price doesnt matter people =p my dads got that covered lol

p.p.s ill be back at bout 8:15 cuz im leaving for tennis practice in like 5-10 minutes

Spec wise yes they may be close, but in terms of feel the Extreme will feel "closest to home." The Extreme was basically suppose to be Head's version of the PD.

Demo them all, I'm biased toward Yonex, so I'd probably go with the 002, but TRY THEM ALL. Demoing is the only way to know.

ya i was probably going to do that, but i just wanted to see peoples personal opinions, or if somebody tried both and preferred another, my friend said that if get the k factor team i should put some lead tape on it cuz its so light, but hes 19 lol ill prolly just demo all like i said earlier though, but not till after my major tourney (next week)
