Curious, have you played with the Donnay Pro One Intl? How does this directly compare with the Wilson nCode 6.1?

Type of game/style would help a considerable amount in regards to recommending a good stick as well...

Without question the Wilson ProStaff 6.1 series. The Donnay Pro One International is pretty darn good as well. Almost forgot; if you can find one, the Yonex RD-7 does not disappoint in the spin department - so I've heard...

You could also try the Prince O3 Tour mid, or the Hybrid Tour. Both 95's.

OK....more info...

last racquet played and currently the one I'm using...unfortunately only have one left.....

wilson ultra fpk 95

I tore my ACL about 10 years ago...never had it reconstructed....so while I can still hit the ball pretty well....I can't move so well.......if I do decide to play somewhat competitive.....it will be interesting to see what level I could or should play at.......anyone have a thought on that?????

about my game.......mostly a baseline player......excellent passing shots.....like to move guys around....mostly topspin....two handed backhand.....love to force a short ball in the middle of the court and then I'll hit an angled winner...

my serve is OK....low 100s back in the day but not all that powerful....nice kick second serve.....I volley OK......ended up being a decent doubles player ........ always had a pretty good return of serve.....

Favorite players back then...Connors, Borg, Becker, now I like Federer.....

what else can I say.......any advice on racquets would be appreicated, I'd stick with my ultra fpk 95 but I can't find any of them and only have one left which is a bit beat up.....I break strings a fair amount due to the topspin and taking a pretty big cut at the ball so I need 2-3 frames (the same) in my bag.....

love to play on your 4.0 team :-D
