i recommend that u dont switch to os, because u lose a lot of control and feel, i recommend the Wilson HPS 6.1, the Ncode Six one, i think the ncode tour 90 and the reg tour 90 will be too much for u since ur looking for a os, but they are good sticks to try.

Why are you recommending racquets with even smaller heads? A guy looking for an OS isn't going to be able to play with a 90.

Agreed.

We need a little more info on your game before giving you good advice. I mean if you are a 3.5 player the last thing you want is a HPS61 or the like. There are dozens of really good OS sticks depending on your skill level and needs.

Tell us your NTRP rating, swing style/speed, and overall playing style....then you might get some meaningful advice.

I'd try the POG instead of the NXG, but if you want an extra half inch, I really think the Dunlop 300g oversize is a nice frame.

Oh yeah, Spadea was using the POG for awhile, I think he still is, although he switched to the mid for awhile. Paul Goldstein used to use the POG and the Change, but recently swithed to the Babolat Pure Control. Back in the day, Alex O'Brien used the Radical OS also.

Lendl...you didn't say anything about your style of play or the length of your stroke which would be helpful. If you generate plenty of racket head speed then the NXG OS and the POGOS would be woth a demo. With a medium length swing speed the LM Radical OS or the Pure Drive OS might be the ticket.

Personally, I think the LMRad OS is a wicked all-around doubles stick. But...the PDOS is a great serving racket which volleys suprisingly well. Demo, demo, demo.

I can agree with one poster, the Dunlop 300G oversize is a nice stick. Dunlop also has Tennis Magazine's Editor's Choice award winning frame the 600G I.C.E. Very nice frame, mid plus really, 102 head size. Still it depends on your game. Demo different frames.

tks guys,


i'm demoing the nxg os, pog os, prins more attack os, and prince air stick os. i'll let you know what i think. one thing is that tw demos seem to be strung at too low a tension for me. right now i use the yonex mp tour 90 at 65lbs and the pc standard at 65lbs.

What were you using before? Maybe you need to add more weight to your current racket.
