First of all, I have to point out that you're contradicting yourself, and that you're contradicting yourself. Mid+ IS usually 95 sq. in to 100; and that you cannot have a lot of power in a racket and at the same time possess incredible control.
Control means that the racket generates less power, and you will have to generate it yourself with your strokes.
A lot of power means that the racket will do much of the work for you, thus requiring less effort on your part.

You should check out j0llyroger's racket selection guide to clarify any misconceptions you may have about tennis rackets.

As a follow-up though, you CAN compromise between the two; for a good mix of power/control I'd recommend the Roddick Pure Drives.

Virtually all decent MP's from across the range of brands have these qualities (or would claim to.) You need to refine your question. Furthermore, if you say something about your level and style, etc, it would help people in terms of advising you.

Commentators need to make a point of that on TV; maybe Bud Collins would be less annoying if he said "it's not the racket that gives you a rocket forehand, its your damn stroke" instead of BSing his way through a match.
Maybe.

I say it's A LOT closer to control than it is to power.

Completely disagree. The PDR is not only slightly immobile and cumbersome, it's EXTREMELY powerful, and has a 'debatable' control capacity... IMO.

No tennis racquet has LOADS of power AND control, but if you want a good balance between the two, try out the nTour or K Tour. There are others of course, but those are the two I found to give the best balance.

Arbartrator,

It is tough to combine power and control into one frame but if I had to pick one racquet for someone with those qualities I would recommend the K95 18x20. It has the tight, control oriented string bed and decent pop. If you can handle the 340 swing weight AND still play your best, it is a hard racquet to beat (in my humble opinion).

And I would agree with Ross K in that a pure drive roddick is too stiff to be considered a control racquet (in my opinion). To each his own, but we could debate this forever and still not make any progress.

Go out and demo a few and make your decision. You playing level also has an large influence on what would be recommended as well. At the end of the day, what is best for me or anyone may not necessarily be what is best for you.

Good luck

Am I the only one that thinks that people sound like a broken record when they spout the lower power = more control doctrine? How the hell is a racquet that has more power harder to place the ball with than one with less power? If you adapt to one, it's going to be harder to place the ball in the same spot with a different racquet.

In most cases, racquets that are more stable, and therefore more controlled since the racquet won't twist as much, have a higher swingweight or more weight in the head, making them more powerful than their less stable, less controlled counterparts.

I think the apd possesses both good power and control. That could be what the OP should consider.

I think my n6.1 95's do a good job on both fronts.

If there was such a racquet, everyone would be using it. In fact, I'd like an O/S with great power, control, and spin.
