Which racket should I get?
I have a Donnay Plat 99 that I like but... I feel like it is just too heavy and hard for me to maneuver. I'm looking for a lighter, maybe slightly more powerful racket that has a nice fles (around 60-65) but is also powerful enough to hit a decent service return. I play 3.25 NTRP in my league- but have beaten 4.5 players before. My ground-strokes are mostly top spin and my server are FLAT--no slicing whatsoever. My second serve is a a kick-but needs more speed. I play mostly baseline but am working a lot of more aggressive net rushing when my opponent gives me an opportunity by hitting a short ball.

For reference, I used a Dunlop BIO 200-it feels GREAT- but it is just too low powered for my game.

Any suggestions?
The London seems to spec out perfect for me--but I'm open to any suggestions.

Firstly, a 3.25 player who hits a flat serve only...I'm not even going to comment.

Regarding your racquet choices, the London is an all-round player's stick for up to 5.5-6.0 level of play. It would work for your game. If you hit with violent topspin...to go with your flat serve, then go with the X8 315.

sorry-meant 3.75--not 3.25!
