I'm looking for new stick which give me more control, stability, softer. I'm using APD which hurt my wrist a lot. I've tried to add lead, yes better stability, but stiffness can't be reduced. I'm only 110 pounds(50 kg) body weight, 3.5-4 rating, baseline defensive player. Need suggestion for more control racquet espacially softer racquet which most powerful, get me?

Thanks.

try a 100sq+ head for power,maybe a k zen? im not an expert but its a 103sq head which means a bit more power?

Thanks Domstar7, but Kzen is too stiff & more powerful than my current stick.

I'm spinny, 2HBH, prefer standard lenght.

Thanks guys.

Hmmmm, spin-friendly and 2HBH... there are 2 options off the top of my head now.
1. Wilson nBlade OS. The stiffness is < 60 and it has rock solid feel. There are not many available in Bangkok now.
2. Prince Original Graphite OS. Classic feel, stable and comfortable.

From experience:

POG OS, Nblade OS.

From specs reading and nerding out on TT:

LM Radicals, MP and OS--apparently these are the most powerful flexy specwise sticks in my memories of reading this board. Every other power thing is usually with stiffer built.

Pro Kennex Kinetic 5G
O3 white and subsequen versions

Doesn't answer your question, but the most powerful "control" frame is the PDR.

To answer your question, you may want to consider the Wilson n6-1 95. Its power comes strictly from massive plow through. It's a bit heavy, but if you've got decent muscles, you should be fine.

Another possible choice would be something like a LM Radical. Very powerful, but not that stiff(for me). Some have experienced TE with the radical, but it seemed fine to me.

I was going to say the Pure Control or Pure Storm....but when you said your wrist was hurting I wasn't too sure.

Actually, the Pure Storm might not be too bad.

Any Radical model from head. I would recommend the MG.

Mate, if your wrist hurts then you're using improper technique. No racket can help your wrist if you continue playing with improper technique. Serious.

Call me if you wish. How 'bout playing on the Sunday after the Chinese New Year week?

I hope the most powerful control racquet will be BB 11 mid. I hope it has bigger sweetspot and even more power than DNX 10 mid

Thanks bro'. I'd like to add more practice while looking for new stick.

I'll call you later this weekend.

Thanks for all replied. I've just decided some choices. Thanks again.

How was it effect on my game? Need some explanation, please.

Many peoples suggest APDC to me, you too. Many reviewer said that APDC is less feel than APD, how do you think? I've never tried it, and there's no DEMO APDC in my area.
