    Racquet search didn't really help much, plus I want to hear peoples' experiences with the frame they recommend.

    I previously used a Bab PD but find it has too much power and I want to become less of an aggressive player and more of a pusher. I'm a 3.5-4.0 baseliner who wants to integrate more of a full-court game. I have a big flat and kick serve and open stance topspin forehand, flat 2hbh, sub-optimal volleys and overheads.

    Headsize: 95-100
    Length: 27
    Weight: 11.2-12
    Balance: More headlight the better (5-x)
    Swingweight: As low as possible (x-325)
    Stiffness: x-66 (developing minor tennis elbow)
    String Pattern: I really like 16x20

    I really like the specs from some Pro Kennex frames (7G, 5G, and KI 5) but unless their frames are becoming pretty scarce (I find online vendors to be over-priced so I buy from classifieds or auction sites). I'm also looking into the new Bab Pure Storm Tour/ Oldschool PC or Aeropro Drive, Yonex RDS 002 Tour, and Head LM Rad. Thanks in advance.

    How about the MicroGel Radical Pro or K Factor KPro Tour? The 03 tours are also nice.

    The Technifibre 310 Flash is right there and many think its a significantly better PD. However, it may have more power than you like.

    How about this .......

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageRCPRINCE-TTW.html

    looks like a perfect match based on the specs you mentioned above. Except frame is at tad stiff at 67.

    It's a close out so the price TW is selling won't break your wallet.
    Only suggestion is on the TT Warrior is to add lead at 3 and 9o clock - this should help make the racquet more stable, otherwise, it feels too light. But- you might like it the way it is (stock)

    Hope this help!
