    looking around for a new racket, absolutely loathe my PD+
    eyeing these rackets
    n61 95
    flexpoint radical
    flexpoint prestige
    wilson 6.0 95
    pk redondo

    play with SW grip, lots of spin, diverse serves, 2h backhand mostly flat, slice 50% of time on bh side, ok volleys (no stability on PD+), about 4.0 ish.

    do you guys have any advice/suggestions
    thanx in advance

    Liquidmetal Prestige. Just happen to have one for sale.

    Also RDX500 or RDS 001 might a good fit for you.

    Good luck.

    how long did it take to adjust to the weight and balance differences?

    The FXP Prestige MP is a nice frame. Theres always people who never try it and say they suck. It's stiffer than the other Prestiges which helps in todays power game. Add a leather grip and you will have no problems with it.

    But you hit SW so the FXP Rad Tour would be a better choice. (16x19 not 18x20)

    N6.1 is good for serves and volleys.

    I went from the APD+ to the Flexpoint Prestige MP just fine. I am so glad that I did it. I do not have as much power or spin but the control is so much better that this was unquestionably the best equipment change I've ever made.

    Pick the HEAD FXP Prestige Mid-plus (not the smaller mid). It will reward you with power when you hit well but still give you control when you don't. It has good weight, balance and is a great player's racquet.
