    I've played with the Babolat Pure Control and i liked that. I cracked so I demo a few racquets and i can't find the right racquet.

    Tested racquets:
    Wilson Nsix-one tour 90 (to demanding, small headsize)
    Head Flexpoint Prestige MP ( don't like a dense string pattern)
    Head Liquidmetal Instinct (string pattern, thick beam)
    Prince O3 tour mp (can't serve with it)
    Fischer M Speed Pro Number One (my forehand blew)
    Babolat aeropro control (like it but very stiff)
    Yonex RDX 500 MP (can't serve with it)

    Demo List:
    Wilson ksix-one tour 95
    Volkl DNX 10 mid

    My playstyle: I've a big surve, a baseliner with a fast forehand and a 2 handed backhand

    About me: Height: 6'4''
    Weight: 167 lbs

    What racquets suits to me??

    ... The Pure Control!

    The most similar racket out there to the PC is probably the nSix-One or kSix-One 95.

    I can't understand why you wouldn't just get another PC though. If you liked it and can't find anything else, why keep looking?

    I don't want another Babolat cause these racquets cracked really fast

    Pffft, like I'd know
    If the only problem with the RDX 500 MP was that you couldn't serve with it, then try the RDS 001 MP. Also try the Technifibre T-Fight series.

    I've tried the Prince O3 Hybrid Tour and I think it's really underrated - you may be able to crank from the baseline big-time with that one.

    If you're trying the DNX 10 mid, you might want to try the midplus along with it, but it doesn't seem to be a super hot serving stick according to its feedback. It looks like it really shines in the control and spin department despite a denser pattern.

    I go to net a lot and my old Prostaff 6.1 Classics still work great for me, especially in doubles with really quick exchanges. If I were one to camp on the baseline though, I can really thump the ball with my LM Prestige mid and I'd use it a lot more often for grinding. For me, it may be the best serving racquet that I'll ever use, but it's a heavy beast and it doesn't let me get away with casual swings.
