My friends Babo felt like it was cheap and made of plastic even tho it still produced some good shots. AG200 is considerably heavier but more maneuverable at net (IMO) than the my AG300 16x19 and also has a lot more control on pretty much every shot. The AG300 was more comfortable on the elbow than the AG200 on off-center shots and the AG300 at first swing served a lot better than the AG200. Both of my AG200's & AG300's are leaded to around 12.4oz. and balance is around the same as stock.

so which one would u recommend?

I'm going to stick with the AG200's for a while. I recommend it as long as you're able enough to swing it with effectiveness for a couple hours +. If you want something more forgiving I'd recommend AG300 over the Babolat. The Babo was one of the worst feeling rackets I've ever tried even tho it produced decent to good shots. Just my 2 cents.

I have all three and they're all nice racquets. What kind of game do you play? What kind of racquet are you used to? What are you looking to change?

The PD is more maneuverable than the ag200, but not the ag300. The PD and ag300 can both generate a crapload of spin, with a slight edge going to the PD. The ag200 and PD are more stable than the ag300. Serves, for me, are better with the PD and ag200 than the ag300. I'd say that if you play a control game with not much spin and can handle the weight, the ag200 is a nice stick. If you like to bang topspin from the baseline, the PD is definitely the choice. The ag300 offers a little bit of everything.
