For my upcoming birthday, my parents are paying for me to have a private lesson to demo racquets. We are calling the pro tomorrow to set up the lesson, and I have to tell him an idea of what we want. I'm thinking of trying out the Prince O3 Tour and the Dunlop M-Fil 300. Are there any others (any brand) that are like those two racquets that I should try?

nCode nSix-One 95 16x18
Yonex RDX 500 MidSize (NOT MidPlus)

That two stick worth the trying. Specially the Yonex.

Thats right, but he wont buy yet, he's only demoing, so we can give him some racket's name to demo because he named the O3 and asked for similar sticks.

Why not the midplus?

Yeah, I just want ideas to demo. I want to demo as many as I can to get the best racquet for me.

Because the MidPlus is so, so different that it seems another racket. Most, not to say all players ho used both will tell you that the performance of the Mid is two times bigger than the MidPlus. And the 90 sq is not a really big problem because this racket has larger sweetspot than other 90 frames.

What else can I say? That frame came from heaven!!!

PD: If you notice I throw too many flowers to the Yonex, is because I want one.

Thanks for all the responses, just need to bump this up for another question. So far I'm planning to demo the Prince O3 Tour, Yonex RDX 500, Head Flexpoint Radical, and Dunlop M-Fil 300. I would like to try a Volkl; what Volkl stick is most similair to these frames?

Like azak said the nSix-One 16x18 is a great racket if you can use the weight to your advantage

A good suggestion, but one of my high school teammates had one and I didn't care for it.

for vokl i would try the tour 10 v-engine or the tour 10 gen II

I'll check them out, thanks :)
