    I am new to the board but have been impressed with the knowledge of those who post. So here is my question: TW just posted the Drive Z-Max. On paper, it looks good for me. I am approx a 3.5 baseline player. Strong forehand and serve with a two-handed backhand. Topspin on both sides. Currently, I play the Prince More Game but I need more control for my full, moderately powered strokes. Previously, I played the Wilson 5.3 but over time found it too stiff. Also the Game breaks tons of strings. I have tried the PD+ but find it hard to consistently control. Besides, I like a larger headsize (107-110) and a little lighter racquet. Finally, so I can order from TW, how do Babolat grips (principally size) compare with Prince or Wilson. Thank you.

    This frame is pretty light and very stiff(72 RDC). It also has the Zylon matrix material in the frame. I played with a Bab Pure Power Zylon for a while and found it be very stiff and it lacked control even with poly strings. I'd recommend demoing before buying this one(or any other racquet for that matter).
