Head prestige MP, Head Radical MP, Head Speed mp, Dunlop 4D 200, dunlop 4D 300 tour, Wilson KBlade 98

all pretty solid frames, tight string patterns to give you good control on flat shots. I've hit with all those frames and you can't really go wrong. If i Was to pick one, I'd go with the Head Speed mp 18x20, but give the 16x19 one a try.

Try Roddick's racket. They are powerful and pretty consistent for 2 handed backhanders like you.

if you liked your flexpoint prestige, then i would suggest going with the microgel version. it is a bit softer and not quite as harsh as the flexpoint.

Agree...you'll get better control with the microgel version, too.

Pure Drive GT Plus or Roddick Plus is good for a 2HBH. The sticks will add some spin to your flat forehand, too (at least it does for me).

I'll agree and say try the MGPMP or maybe the Speed 18x20. I also think it would be worth it to try out the Babolat Pure Storm Tour or Aero Storm Tour. Both very solid. I personally didn't like the KBlade or KBT.
