    On thursday, i'm going out to get two of any racket to play with, but also for the collection. Im a strong 4.5 player with moderate topspin and pace groundstrokes. I'm a really strong kid 5"11 160 pounds, and i'm only 14. What should i get?

    Since your really strong and a 4.5, give the Babolat AeroPro Drive with or without Cortex a try...

    Try a Babolat Roddick Pure Drive if you want more power or Aeropro if you want good spin to your strokes :)

    Thursday eh? Any racket eh? Lucky *******...

    No doubt about it: Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 85, preferably a pair of Saint Vincents if you can find it. Get one mint, and one used. If you're 4.5, then you'll do fine with em. Besides, they look great on the wall:)

    i have used the apd/c and in my opinion is way too stiff and has way too much power.

    I didn't actually expect you to take my suggestion seriously :)

    In any case, my recommendation goes to the Prokennex Redondo MP.

    If you can't get those, go with a pair of Microgel Prestige Pros.

    Well, i used to have a bunch of Microgel Prestige Mps, but sold them. Is there really a huge difference? I have the package from a bunch of different companies, so i can get these cheap.

    Can you handle it? If you can, I'd also consider the Migrogel Prestige Mid, the POG MS, the Prokennex Redondo 93 and the entire Volkl 10 line.
