    Is there such a stick? I know the 4D version never made it to the U.S.

    The 200 Lite is a 16x19 version of the Bio 200 and 200 tour.

    Although it says light, it weighs in at 11.5/11.6 strung and does provide a nice platform for modification. You may still want to check it out.

    actually, the 4D version of 16/19 200 was available in the US exclusively through one of TW's competitors.

    but like Darkhors says, why not just add a bit of lead. i've heard good things about the bio 200 lite

    Nah I'm not really a fan of "too polarized" frames. I'd have to put lead at the 12 to get it to my specs. My current stick has almost the same specs in stock, with a much higher SW.

    the 4D version is quite a bit lighter than the Bio 200 'Lite', actually...

    ??? Is that true? I read a review here in TW that the 4D's SW was closer to 315 at 11.5 ounces. The BMM 200 Lite was at 308 at the same weight right?

    The bio 200 lite is a very good frame but the plow isn't great and I felt it lower in power

    yeah, I didn't like it, either, but it was better than the 4D 200 16 x 19

    These are still available here in Australia (at AUD $84.95) and I have had a hit with them. Yes, they are lighter than the 200 Lite, but neither are all that fantastic IMHO.

    I have regular bio 200s that I love, however. I think the 200 plus has an open string pattern, but it also has (inexplicably) a 100 sq in head...

    Agree that it lacked plow thru but I thought it was very powerful. Maybe the Tour Bite strings helped in that department?

    I played with the racquet in your sig for a while and these are 2 different animals. You might try the Prince EXO3 Tour 18X20. I never play with 18x20's, but this racquet can not tell the difference. Just a suggestion.
