What racquet matches these qualities?
My friend wants a racquet that is:

1) Great for doubles play.
2) Racquet with excellent touch/feel.
3) A responsive racquet whereby the ball can be placed where he wants to on the court - deep, just over the net, left or right.
4) Volley's well.
5) Wants great results even when doesn't hit ball properly like when he gets late to balls and sticks out racquet type thing.
6) His swing is short and more faster then slower.

Any racquet suggestions?

the only thing i could think that would be close that i've used would be the AG 300

What racquet matches these qualities?
My friend wants a racquet that is:

1) Great for doubles play. (This is totally subjective)
2) Racquet with excellent touch/feel. (Fischer M pro)
3) A responsive racquet whereby the ball can be placed where he wants to on the court - deep, just over the net, left or right. (more up to the player than the racquet)
4) Volley's well. (definitely the M pro)
5) Wants great results even when doesn't hit ball properly like when he gets late to balls and sticks out racquet type thing. (that's just stupid)
6) His swing is short and more faster then slower. (the M pro is one of the fastest swinging racquets around)

Any racquet suggestions?

Obviously I'm a little biased, as the Fischer M pro is my racquet of choice, but seriously, try one out sometime, definitely worthy of a test drive. :)

Dunlop Maxply McEnroe if he can handle the stiffness. Though AG 300 or MFil 300 might be good options as well.

Or M-Fil 300, nice and responsive, with a little lead it has plenty enough pop...

yonex rq is tour 1 has very crisp and solid volleys and for a 95 sq. in racquet has a huge sweet spot and is very forgiving.

If your looking for something bigger...the yonex rds 003 is a nice racquet that is also very forgiving

Honestly, this is one of the silliest types of questions we see on here. People are ... particular .... and a frame "A" likes will be hated by "B".

One of my regular training partners plays a very similar game to my Attack the Net / All Court style. He plays with a Prince OS; I play with a PK MP. Very common games ... very different frames.

It will be so with most people.

... Have your friend try 3 or 4 frames (from at least two makers).
... Get feedback from his experience.
... Based on the feedback, try 2 or 3 others.
... Repeat....
... Eventually he'll find himself liking one frame more than all the others. That's the one he should get.

Based on 5 and 6, I would say a pretty powerful racket with a 98-110 head size, depending upon what he likes. For 1 and 4, assuming based on the descripton of what he likes, that he isn't an advaced player, also a similar head size with low swing weight. #3 is a matter of perception and taste, but touch generally don't go with the other 4 criteria.
I would say first try some Princes esp. the White or Black.
If he doesn't have enough touch on them, maybe try the Dunlop McEnroe or 300.

Yeah what he wants is kind of specific. Of course he will demo but he wants to narrow his demo list down. He doesn't have time to spend demoing half the store. Which thanks to the responses here is happening. Keep your opinions coming folks, thanks!

The Yonex RQS 11 is nice. Gives excellent feel and control
