    Hello...new user here. Just needed a little help on a racquet of choice for my style a game.

    I'm what most people call a grinder. I'm fast enough to get to balls that most people will think is a winner. Not much of a net person and I'm always at the baseline. My power is nothing special but I'm working on it and I'm okay in my control aspect. I'm looking for a racquet that leans towards hitting good sharp angles and is suited for a quick baseline player that relies on defense more than offense.

    Pros:
    Fast
    Baseliner
    Mild control
    Persistent

    Cons:
    Bad at the Net
    Not all that much power

    I don't know how much power your talking about, but I do know that I racquet with an open string pattern will give you more spin to pull those angle shots down.

    What do you use right now?

    Go for a POG OS, which is very solid at baseline, with a relatively open string pattern. Allow you generate enough spin to pin sharp angle. With HL balance, providing you to generate pretty fast racquet head speed for pace.

    You want:
    - Headlight
    - Open String Pattern
    - Midplus or bigger headsize (maybe around 97-102)

    I would try a Diablo MP and add lead tape to bring up the swingweight a bit and give your shots a bit more punch.
