    A 3.5 female player of 40 is looking to upgrade from her Yonex RDX300 MP. What would be the best choice? The foremost importance is comfort to arm and wrist.

    The dunlop has a nice and comfortable flex to it, but a somewhat stiff hoop. It should by easy on the arm.

    The BB Pro is a stiff one that was uncomfortable for me.

    I've not hit the other two, by Yonex has a unique feel that would be familiar with so I would rec. at least a demo of that one.

    The Dunlop AG 4D 300 seems to be a nice choise, but I'd throw in the Wilson K Factor Six.Two as well.

    A little lighter than AG 4D 300, a bit more HH and a very easy racquet to hit with.

    Thanks for responses so far.

    The female player was leaning toward Becker Pro, because many reviwers report that it doesn't cause arm pains despite the high stiffness. On the other, Dunlop AG300 is said to feel stiffer and harsher than its low stiffness indicates. Somewhat confusing.

    pro kennex 15 may be a good fit but it is such a matter of personal taste.
    Also, the head lm 4 might be worth looking into.

    None of those racquets is an upgrade from an RDX300 MP.
