I'm demoing the Mid plus version. Is this a good stick?

I have one that I used as a "getting back into tennis after years away from the game" racquet, but now I'm growing tired of it. It's a solid tweener, no doubt, but the problems I have with it are:
-can be unstable at net and not very solid on net block shots due to the lack of weight. This could be fixed with lead in the handle.
-too powerful for my game. I'm a power baseliner, and this racquet is better designed for a counter-puncher.
I think it's a good racquet for recreational players. It has a good blend of control and power on moderate swings, but it can lose control on big cuts. It produces a lot of spin, which is good because that's the only way I can keep the ball in the court on big shots.
Overall, I'd say it's a good racquet for intermediate players who don't play too often, but if you're playing a lot, I think you'll tire of it eventually. But it is very comfortable and versatile.
