I'm not able to playtest the following racquets and would really love to hear your guys' opinions on them:

Head Prestige Midplus (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Head_YOUTEK_Prestige_Midplus/descpageRCHEAD-HYTPMP.html)
Dunlop Biomimetic 200 (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Dunlop_Biomimetic_200/descpageRCDUNLOP-DB2H.html)
Babolat Pure Storm Ltd. GT (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Babolat_Pure_Storm_Ltd_GT_New/descpageRCBAB-BPSL.html)

My background: I'm a 4.5, play 4 times a week and I'm coming from a Head Speed MP 16x19. I have NO problem generating velocity and topspin so I'm looking for something more control-oriented: tight string pattern, smaller head, higher static weight and lower swingweight.

I've hit with the Prestige Midplus and LOVED it. I'm leaning that way just because it's a model I know will be great, but I was just wondering what you guys think of the other two compared to it. Thanks!

Well, I went from Speed MPs to a Dunlop 300 and now to a 200 (more crunch, for want of a better term) and couldn't be happier.

I haven't had a lot to do with the Babolat but I played HEAD FXP Prestige and really liked that frame. I prefer the Dunlop quality and feel to my old FXP Prestige, for whatever that might be worth.

The PSL and Bio200 are both great sticks with similar attributes. Both are plush and comfortable. The PSL is slightly more plush, the Bio200 has a little more plow, pop and stability. Both have excellent spin potential for 18x20 95's. Overall, I prefer the Bio200.

I haven't demo'd the Prestige.
