i play number 6 for an average high school team. Last year we were second and districts and one player made it to states. This year we a decent top 6 but nowhere as good as last year. Im demoing a few racquets and was wondering if anyone could give me feedback on how they play, feel. what type of strings etc.
Im around 3.0-3.5 range been playing 13 months.

Demo List
1. Microgel Prestige Midplus
2. Microgel Radical Pro
3. Microgel Extreme
4. Babolat AeroPro Drive Cortex

All the racquets you list are very well liked. But why stray from your TT Warriors? They are a very good racquet as well. What are you looking for that the Warriors don't offer?

I'm looking for more spin and more pop. The TT's give me power but i feel i need more heft on the ball because when im out of position i often have a weak reply

You need to tell people about your game. I agree that all the sticks are well-received here....how big are you, style of game, type of strokes, singles or doubles player, etc.

i'm 5'8 15yrs 100lbs dont need a light racquet prederably over 11.1 oz mostly agressive baseliner can be a pusher when under pressure topspin forehand hits out on the ball most of time Backhand is more of a defensive shot Flat backhand play singles for hs team #6

I think the APDC would work great for you..its got lots of pop and insane spin potential..allowed me to get more topspin and deeper shots when under pressure instead of just pushing it back..

Another option is to string your Warriors about four pounds lower than you have. (It's also a less expensive approach.)

i would stay away from the prestige for a while to be honest. the weight of the other 3 sounds better for you if your still growing, no disrespect. the extreme is a top racket for everything, but u might like the radical. demo!

I agree, the APDC would be a good option. You should also try the Dunlop 500 Tour, not as much spin potential, but a very good all around racquet.

Please do not take this the wrong way but,

invest that money in some lessons, the spin/pop comes from the person connected to the stick

Good luck,

also.. get some meat on those bones

a thought is to also look at the mfil 200 16x19. great bargain and you can get three for the price of one of the sticks you mentioned.

Try the Pure Drive Roddick, there are alot of Prince O3's and Wilson racquets that would fit you as well (too many to list =X).
The Extreme, Aerogel 500 and Aero Drive are good choices, but maybe you should try the Extreme Pro and Aerogel 300 too?
