    I need a new raquet. I'm using the pro staff tour 90 I think.

    I like the way it feels and the control, but I want more power. All the frames i've tried so far have more power, but have a plastic like feel to them. I like the feel of the tour 90 which feels more like wood, to me anyway.

    I've tried added lead to some frames to match the weight of the Tour 90, ultimately it feels off, it has the power, but without the solid feel of the Tour 90.

    Please, any ideas would be really apreciated.

    Thank you

    Thanks.

    What about anything in the 95 head sizes?

    One question, it seems to me that there isn't a big difference in power from 90 to 95 as opposed to 95 to 98. This makes no sence to me. It's probably just me. I tried the pro staff 6.1 95 and it didn't feel anymore powerful than the Tour 90. In fact it felt noticably weaker.

    I tried some of the volkl sticks and I like the feel, but they don't have much power. Too much flex I think. The one I tried anyway.

    There isn't really a strong correlation between power and headsize once a racquet gets above 95 or so.
    The donnay platinums would be good choices too from what I've heard
