I did a shootout over the weekend between 4 of my rackets which are Volkl C10 Pro, Yonex rd ti-50, POG mid and Prince Precison Equipe. I enjoyed the soft feel of the Volkl and Yonex but I played best with the Equipe. Something about the weight and stiffness combined with the sweet spot suspension gave it a unique feel and made it easier to hit winners and it was also great for a chip and charge type of a game. The only problem as I remember with this racket is that there are more shocks transmitted to the arm due to the stiffness and it can get a bit heavy after long hours of play.
Has anybody played with this racket and can recommend another model with similar playing characteristics but a little friendlier on the arm?

The PK 5g had almost identical specs as far as power, control and weight were concerned on the RacquetTech grid a few years back. My doubles partner at that time use the Equipe MP standard length and the 5g almost interchangably.

Wilson PSC 6.1 95 was the target for the Equipe. http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Reviews/PE/PEReview.html

Slaz Pro Braided, a lighter more responsive version of the PSC 6.1. I played with the Equipe for a couple of years and it was tough to play 3 sets with, I can play all day with the Slaz
