    Hi every body,

    I am writing form Patagonia Argentina, wich means far from everything.
    I have a PD 110, I put some weigh in the handle and I like it, but I am having some arm problems. I decided to change my raquet for a more flexible frame.
    My game and skill level:
    According to my coach, I am 3,5/4 NRTP. I play mostly from the base line, goes to the net few times, serve with slice not hard but with good spin and placement. I use Semi western grip, two handed backhand, both with good topspin. I use to keeps the ball in play for a long time.
    I am 44 years old,and started to play tennis two years ago. Take lessons 3 times a week.

    I think that my best options are:


    - O3 tour OS 107
    -O3 blue OS 110

    My question is if 107 will be ok for me, as I will have no chance for demo.

    Thank you for helping.

    Dany,

    I suggest demoing the Pro Kennex Kinetic 5G. I used to play with the PD OS and also developed arm problems. After about 1 set of serving, i would get pretty bad throbbing in my tendon on the lower part of the bicep. I bought a PK kinetic 5G based on the feedback on this forum for it's arm friendliness. I have not had arm pain since and my game has improved because I am able to use a full stroke on my shots.

    Absolutely, except Dany is looking for a replacement for PD110, so the POG will be underpowered.

    I would have to say O3 Blue on this one because it's more powerful.

    True, well in that case, the O3 red is also a good choice.
