What is the best 16x19 players racquet. I like the PD+ but I think that may be the reason why my elbow is causing so much pain. So I think I need a heavier stick, head light on the balance.. Maybe something like a Prestige but more spin potential 16x19 prefered. Thanks.

I really like the Volkl 10 Tour MP Gen II. I would seriously give that some thought.

I think the Slazenger Pro X1 is supposed to be very similar to the volkl as well.

My vote is for the Babolat Aeropro Control, great stick.

Wilson nSix-One Tour 90, if you serve-and-volley and/or play doubles. The Prince Graphite Classic OS if you bang away from the baseline.

You can pick up my Volkl C-10 Pro 98's - I have 2 for sale on ****. $110 shipped for both. they are the best racquet since the original Dunlop Max 200G for sheer comfort and delight of hitting the ball sweetly. They surpass the Dunlop in the silken feel, but aren't quite as accurate as the 200G, because of the larger head ((98 vs. 85).

They are also strung (recently, slight use) with the softest string around - Technifibre 515, which plays like natural gut. The combination is guaranteed to minimize pain, just as playing with a stiff stick like the Pure Drive, coupled with a macho string like the Big Banger, is guaranteed to give you pain. One of the biggest problems of the new tennis game is its emphasis on macho, to the decline of the old finesse.

Replace all the *'s with e's. The system had a glitch when he wrote that, not his fault.

Anyways, as to the original post, I'd say PS 6.0 95, even though it's 16x18.

Try Prince Diablo Mid, it is 16x20, great spin as for 93", good control.
Heavy, head light, real players racquet.

Thanks for you help guys. I ended up getting an Prince O3 Tour. Hopefully this is better on the arm, and gives me the nice spin too.

Though it seems like you already chose, I would second the choice for a Diablo Mid. I put a leather grip, overgripped it, and added lead to 9-10 and 2-3... to 13oz and it's amazing.

I also have a western forehand and two-handed backhand; comparable to your style of play.
