I am currently looking to step it up :wink: ... i need a heavier racket with a smaller head. I currently use the lm heat, which infact is a great racket. I really like the fxp prestige BUT its too flexy and i need a tad more power :evil: . I wouldnt mind a extended length racket and i would like more spin there so a 16x19 pattern is fine. I also like stiffer rackets and not over 12 oz. I was thinking Prince Diablo XP, Hybrid Tour, Head LM Instinct Tour XL, Tecnifibre 320 (waiting for it specs look perfect), LM Radical, Wilson n6.1 16x19 (might be too heavy)....now for your opinions! PLEASE HELP I BEG YOU, I have to get a 4 racket demo list soon and I dont have a shop nearby, except for any head rackets which my coach has.

My Info:
Loads of spin, Semi-Western Grip, 15yr old, about a 3.5, 5'8 130Lbs

Overall Search:
1. Spin, Spin, Spin
2. Medium Weight 10.8 to 11.9 oz
3. Midplus headsize 95+
4. Solid and hits a heavy ball
5. Great Serves and Volleys, (mostly all-court)

Look at the nBlade, temember, the racquet will swing heavier than the stats say, otherwise look at the radicals they seem like what you would want.;)

Well since I am 15 around a 3.5 and 5 10 120 I would definitely reccomend the radical series. I have tried them a few times and loved it. Seeing as we are pretty similar....

If you like it stiff, a tad bit more powerful and not over 12oz, go and try the DNX8.

I can certainly understand not liking the beam shape on Babolats, I do not care for it from any manufacturer. You should not let the look of Yonexes turn you off. Have you hit with a Yonex?

well insted of the wilson n6.1 you could try the npro open x. the specs seem to fit the description you're looking for. but i'm not so sure of its spin production.
