New racket demo. Need some advice on some new rackets to demo. Mid 40, 3.5 player, mainly baseline basher with a two handed backhand. Looking for a more control oriented racket. Been using a roddick pure drive but looks like its time to get some less stiff. Need some advice before ordering the demos.

More control- blx blade. Still hits big, but is weighted a little lighter. Higher sw though so it should swing abut the same as the pdr.

Pure storm tour- excellent stick if you want to stay with bab. Not the best on serve though.

Juice pro - same weight as the pdr, more control oriented but hits pretty big.

Dunlop ftour 300 could be a great option as well.

Donnay or PS 100, they are similar spec'd but much softer (stiffness-wise) than the PDR.

Agreed, the Ki5 is an awesome racquet. At your level I would also look into the Ki15.

Try the Head Instict S (http://www.*************.com/head-Youtek-IG-Instinct-S-Tennis-Racquet-22408). It's pretty light, but one of the most solid frames I've hit. I use the PD as well and am looking for something more my level and I've tried about 10 frames and this one is my favorite.
