It seems that these three requirments are conflicting. Which racquet in your view does the best job on all three?

No conflict. POG oversize it will deliver on all the aspects you stated.

ProKennex 5g. I will soon try the PK 15g PSE. I'm hoping it will be just as comfortable and have a little more power.

The Head Classic Midplus has all these qualities, but I do string it with natural gut. The Head LM Prestige is said to play very similarly and may be even better. Not sure. And, the ProKennex racquets do tend to be good.and the models with the beads in the frame are very easy on the arm. The Heads have a little more solid feel to me.

Good luck with it.

I bought a 15G PSE recently as a comparison to my modified 5G with 5x3 gram lead weights at 10,11, 12, 1 and 2 o'clock.

The 15G PSE was quite good, especially on the serve. I used it for approx 7-8 hours playing time over 3 weeks but found it a bit flimsy by comparison, so I still use the 5G.

I am thinking of going the whole way and trying the 5G PSE as having a racket too head heavy tends to plough through the ball.

Otherwise I use Bow Brand gut at 54 lbs both of which also help on the arm.

which do you like best from the Prokennex family, for feel and power?

How would you compare the POG OS to the Prokennex 5g

PK 7g!!! It's got slightly more power than the 5g (because the 7g is a half inch longer), and less than the 15g PSE. I'd suggest getting demos of all 3, if possible, and then choosing for yourself. In any case, nothing beats a PK for the characteristics you are looking for.. except perhaps the POG, which I've never played with, but seems very popular on these boards.

Guys,
has anyone played both the PK family and the POG OS, and compare them for me?
