    Okay after all this time looking around the boards, asking questions, and inquiring about racquets, time for me to actually demo some. For some info I'm 15 years old, use something between a sw and western grip, and like to hit with a lot of spin(i'm a lefty). I try to create angles on the baseline so spin is a must, and only really come to net to finish points. I want something spin friendly like I said before, and somwhere between the high 10 oz to 11.5 oz range. Also needs some power as I'm not exactly huge(5'10" and 120 lbs:))
    Thanks a lot for you replys.

    I'm older (mid-30's) and maybe a little more power (5 7/150), but we seem to play a close type of game.

    Haha I posted a bunch in that thread. I was the one skeptical about the N61's spin.

    I probably shouldn't be suggesting rackets to you when I'm asking for me and we seem to play a similar game. I'll start listening to other peoples advice:) Haha I am only 15.

    What the heck is that? Would look like an N5 force without the other colors. Why did you post that here?

    Thought you wanted a racket suggestion. That will fit well with your game.

    That's a racquet from Wilson's 'W' line. I think that's Crimson something-or-other.

    So saqdeez is just being an idiot? Or is that supposed to be a legitimate answer? I'm not exactly looking for a W line racquet:) Nice avatar by the way freedom.

    Some suggestions i have (if you dont have arm problems)

    .Babolat Aeropro Drive
    .Babolat Pure Storm
    .Babolat Pure Drive
    .DUnlop M-fil 300
    .Head Radical MP
    .Head FXP Instict
    .Prince 03 White
    .Prince 03 Tour MP
    .Technifibre 315
    .Volkl DNX 8
    .Volkl DNX 9
    .Wilson Npro Open
    .Yonex RDS 003/RDX 300
    .Yonex RDS 001 MP/RDX 500 MP


    Those are pretty much all the racquets that fall into your category, ranging from very powerful and stiff (Pure Drive, DNX 8, Instinct ect) to more control based racquets (DNX 9, RDS 001 MP, FXP Radical ect) and racquets inbetween (M-fil 300, Pure storm, Technifibre 315 ect) You can decide which subcategory is right for you and demo from those and finally end up with your racquet
