Hi everyone...I am looking to switch rackets because of arm trouble. I already play with soft strings. I am junior who is ranked in the 50's in the south. I like to play with heavy topspin, but i hit flat sometimes too. I come to the net some, but not often. My racket currently is a stock babolat pure drive cortex. I think the 70 stiffness is a little too much. I would like a less stiff racket with more control than the babolat. I would like the headsize to be smaller than the babolat but not smaller than 95''. I would like for it to weigh less than 12.5 oz. I am open to any suggestions and yes i have tried the racquet finder on TW. I am just looking for suggestions. Thank you in advance!

Head Microgel Prestige or Radical. They are both very comfortable racquets.

prestige mid is smaller than his preference.

Aerogel 200 is very nice too. Its around your preference... actually like dead on. Scratch Diablo Mp since its the same HS as your Babolat.. Or you could look into the babolat pure storms. Or even wait for a pure storm liimited

I know you dropped the Volkl DNX 9, but you might consider the Volkl C-10 Pro.
Head = 98
Static weight 12.0 oz
Stiffness = 63
Swingweight 323

I had arm problems too- shoulder mainly, but elbow to a lesser extent. This racquet has been very good on my arm, and I like the control. Good luck in your search!

Arm trouble?, Boris Becker V1 midplus with no doubt.
Spin friendly, great for your arm and very stable. I was a PD user but I changed to Becker and itīs another story in terms of comfort. It worths a demo.

Since 12 oz. is in the desired range, I would definitely put the BB11 Standard on the OP's must try list.8)
