Of the above frames, I've played with the Volkl Organix 8, PB8, Babolat PD and APDGT. The Volkl Organix 8 is by far the most comfortable - and best - tweener I've ever played.

Did you try SP Black with string hole inserts ?
Feel/feedback and control is much better than with port inserts.

Out of that list is the Volk Organix 8.
If you can, I suggest you to check out the Head Youtek Instinct.

The most arm friendly tweneer I've owned, without a doubt, is the kblade team. It has also good control (more than PD line)

The donnay white, if you guys are not trying out the donnay line you are all missing out. All the other rackets are so so, but donnay is a very unique manufacturer. Once you try them you will never go back to the same old same old that you get from the other companies.

If you are really looking for an arm-friendly frame, stay away from the pure drives, IG extremes and aero-pro. Check out (and Demo if you can) the Radical MP and the BLX Tour

I guess the Prince Tours count as tweeners that are closer to player's frames so I'd second this recommendation.

The wilson blx open is worth a demo and the volkl organix 295 too. Volkl x295 with a touch of lead is a great racket. You may say it isn't a tweener but it is a relatively light racket that is easy to handle with good power. Also, the dunlop 300 with a touch of lead is another great option.

Pacific X Feel Tour has much better feel/control that most tweeners I've used.

the Dunlop bio 500 Tour is a brilliant racquet to hit with but it is quite stiff, so maybe not as arm friendly...

Speed is not a tweener. Players racquet pretty much through and through, but leans a bit towards tweener. Lower powered than the X8. The X8 is similar to a Pure Drive or Aeropro Drive.

Agreed. I loved the 4D 500 tour, but it killed my shoulder.... Too bad, because I hit everything really well with it.

I hit the ig speed 16 x 19 and really enjoyed..question was..do you think more arm friendly than X8..THANKS FOR ALL!!!! think it is like a 65 and lots talk about it's stiffness..

I have the IG Speed 16x19 and it's not stiff feeling...just "firm". No harsh vibrations at all. I think the X8 has been described the same way. The new Volkl handle system absorbs all the vibrations before they reach your arm.
So they are both firm feeling racquets with very little flex at impact, but should be OK on your arm.

The Prince EXO3 Tour 18x20 is butter soft.

They are pretty similar.
Main differences are head shape....Speed is ROUND and 98D more Oval.
and length....Speed is 27.2" and 98D is 27".

The Speed is also lower powered and a bit more of a "player's" stick.
