This is for my father, who is 77. He has been playing w/ the Babolat Pure Drive OS for the last few years and is thinking of changing.

He picked up a Head Five Star last year, but went back to his Babolats after popping a string and liked them better. My mother now uses the Five Star.

He is looking for something in the 102-107 sq in range, slightly extended, in the 10 - 11 oz range (he will add lead if he feels the need). I recommended he look at the Dunlop, the Volkl Organix 4, the Prince EXO3 Red, and the Pacific Raptor, but felt from the specs the Dunlop looked the best.

Being 77, he is pretty much a grinder (as all 77 yr olds are). He is left handed, but has to serve right handed as there's no cartilage left in his shoulder (dedication for you), so he needs a fairly high powered racket. Two-handed backhand, not much topspin. Very consistent.

There won't be an opportunity for him to demo as he'll be swinging by my house on their "migration north" and wants me to string it.

So, anyone got any experience w/ this frame?
