I recently decided to trade in my o3 tour for something with a little more power but not too much more. I don't really want a tweener and i don't really want a player's racquet i kinda want something in between. I'm just looking for something that will help me grow as a player. I'm a 3.5-4.0 all-courter who likes to serve and volley, but i'm not the strongest guy, i'm athletic but not "buff" persay. So if any of you have advice on a racquet that'd be graet. anything helps, thanks again

I thought DNX9 is slightly less powerful than the O3 Tour?

Perhaps go with the babolats. Pure Drive or Aeropro. They might be too stiff and hurt your arm a little, though. However, I think they both fall right in between "players racket" and "tweener" both are around.....10-11 ounces i think?

If you are used to play with the muted feel of the 03 Tour, PD or APD will be very very harsh. I actually went the other way around, from APD to O3 Tour because i dont like the stiffness.

i'd keep the o3. add some lead and string lower. that shouldn't change much but add some power.
o3 white should be another nice option.
