    Hey everyone,

    Im looking for a new racket. I have used the old blx 6.1 95 16x18 for two years now. It is very powerful and i can hit the ball very hard with it but, in my opinion it lacking in control (despite being a control racket). I recently used a friend's head prestige midplus a couple days ago and loved it. It had great control and it really helped my serve and volley/all court game. Does anyone have any suggestions for anymore good control rackets I should demo?

    Thanks

    What strings do you use and what strings were in your friend's racquet?

    You could try the 18 X 20 version of your frame. I think the 16 X 18 is way overrated, control wise...
