I have a couple of POG OS 1987 model.
I am trying to find a good mid size racket to add to my bag :) .

Looking for lower power / higher control than my POG OS:
1) Graphite / Fiberglass composite
2) Stiffness less than 63 ( POG mid has stiffness of 67 :( or I would have got it )
3) Size less than 95 sq in
4) Weight greater than 12.0 oz
5) Straight beam - 17-19 mm width

Anyone have any recommendations?

The only thing close on racquet finder is the PRINCE TOUR NXG. The prince website does not list this racquet. Is it discontinued?

The Donnay Pro One at TW is exactly what you're describing with the exception of a 95" headsize, but it definately plays with the vibe of the old 85" mids. It's just a little more forgiving than a mid and I'd use it over my NXG mid for singles or doubles any day of the week. Both frames play on the softer side, but the Donnay gives me superior feel and control at the net as well as the baseline. I've had a lot of fun with the NXG in long grinding sessions at the baseline and I think it's a bit of an underrated frame, but I get more of everything plus unbelievable feel from the Donnay.

You can probably Google up the old TW review and feedback on the NXG, but I'm pretty sure it's been discontinued for at least a year or two.

The redondo sounds good except for being discontinued. Will look for it on the bay. Interesting that its stiffness is 56 even with a 20 mm beam width.

Donnay pro one is good too, especially the price :)

You can ask Xube from Singapore as I got a pair of Redondo Mids.

I don't think anyone makes racquets with fiberglass anymore.

I dont know of anyone other than Volkl using fibreglass anymore. They use it in the dnx10Mid. Some other frames in which they use fibreglass are/have been the 10VEMid and 10VEMP and the Gen2

Thanks for pointing that out! Didn't one of the pumas or estusas (mid) have fiberglass?

I have a Redondo mid for sale. E-mail sent.

(The beam width measures just over 19mm, btw. TW must have rounded up.)

Doesn't exactly conform to your specs but the RDS 001 Mid is one sweet stick. Perhaps you could give it a try...
