The Wilson HH 5.3 has too much power for me and I want a more control oriented racquet. I want hella spin and a elite control. Would I be better off with the Head LM Prestige MP or the Babolat Pure Drive Standard?

Would I benefit from the PD's 16x19 string setup for more spin? The Prestige is 18x20. I am going to use Babolat 17g VS Team Natural Gut on my racquets.

perfmode,
I have just switched from a Bab Pure Control to the LM p Mid+.
The Babalot though a very good racquet has alot of power and the
Pure Drive even more IMO. I have all the power I need plus control with the LMP mp. The open string pattern of the Babalot provides good spin for a western or semi grip. With a 17gague in my LMP I get my share of spin. With the additional weight of the LMP it plows through the ball.

Have fun. Take them out for a demo, it's the only way you can deside. These boards give great info but you need to hit with it.
wao

Which racquet is closer to a HH 5.3? The Bab PD or the LM Prestige?

Based on the specs of the HH3.3
The head size on both are smaller The PD OS is 100 the others are 97. The LMP PM is 98.
Weight is more on both.
Balance is 7-8 head light
Stiffness is close to the Babalot. the Head is 63
Length PD+ is 27.5 -- PD 27 -- LMP MP 27 HH3.3 28
String pattern Babalot 16 X 19 LMP MP 18X20 HH3.3 16X19

IMO the Babalot is closer to the HH3.3
Hope it helps
