Here is my game:

About a 3.5. Large, strong man - like to hit the ball hard.

Prefer Baseline but will come to net with the right opportunity.
Good Flat first serve, Spin second serve (weaker then I'd like).
One handed bakhand - mostly slice but can come over it too.
Good forehand - particullarly cross court.

I seem to prefer players racquets - like the heavier, control oriented sticks with lots of feel.

Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks

Here's a demo list for you; Prince Graphite Classic Mid, Wilson PS 6.0 95, Yonex RDX 500 MP, PK Laver Type R, PK Ionic 5, Head LM Prestige. If you want to try something a little lighter, try the Prince O3 Tour or PK Laver S.

I'd recommend adding the Slazenger Pro X1 and the Wilson N-Code Six-One 95 to the demo list.

anything that is 95 sq in or lower, start with a prostaff(any of them that weigh 11.5+)
Or
LM Radical Mp
The radical is the staple baseliner stick.

if you want a stronger first serve, I would recommend a longer racquet. I believe it would help a bit.
