Current Racquet: Liquidmetal Prestige Mid
17 Years old, 6'4", Right Handed
I play pretty much an all-court game. Big forehand, full western, I like to run around my backhand and hit for winners in general with my forehand. 2 Handed backhand which I sometimes run around my forehand for, so I guess it is equally as strong as my forehand.
Serving: Flat first serve, averaging 110-120 area. Second serve Kick serve, love hitting lots of spin to take people off the court.
I mix up the way I play alot, from Serve and Volley, to Baselining through the course of a match. Sometimes I stick to the baseline no matter what, others I try to find a way to the net as quick as I can.

I've been considering giving the Aeropro Drive a test, is that a good idea? I am looking for something to give, maybe some more spin, and more power because I trade-off power for spin with the full western.

The Lm mid is a hard act to follow. IMO!!! However, I thought the Tour 10 V-Engine mid (Vokyl) was impressive!

If your all court, I'd take a look at the Dunlop 300G! I am switching to the Dunlop from Head LM Radical MP. Lower swingweight for a 3.5 NRTP player. Cushioning it with Babolat VS for more elbow friendly racquet.

Currently Head LM Radical (57lbs Fibretour)
Going to Dunlop 300G (56lbs Babolat VS)

If you're slamming winners off both wings and firing off 120 mph serves, don't change a ####ing thing.

If you want more spin try the POG MP. 93sqin and similar weight to the prestige. Very solid and great racquet. Can't go wrong with the POG.

On a second look, Grimjack is right, if your hitting so ferociously :)

Dont change unless you are truely unhappy with your prestige. But if you want more spin then give the Fischer Pro Extreme FT a try. Similar specs but with a more open string pattern. Add lead tape if u want to boost the power. Thats what i did with mine.

Well, the problem is mainly the groundstrokes. I'm not slamming winners off both sides, thats what i'm looking for.
I can hit decently off both wings, but when i need that extra gear for the winner with the big wind up, the racquet doesn't respond to a huge cut at all.

I need something i'll be able to hit an outright winner with occasionally.
I've varied my string tensions and all many times but I haven't found a way to make the racquet agree with it. I was thinking about trying a babolat because they are much stiffer and may help me out.
