    I am 12 and been playing with a Babolat Aerostrike . I find it powerful but lacks contol and not good for volleys. Generally I don't like Babolats as I find them too heavy. I like to volley a lot and the Babolats are for baseliners. I have tried the Wilson Bold but it has feel but not much power. Has anyone tried the Head Youtek Raptor ? It is only 9 ounces and Head say it has power and control. I think it is new as not everyone has it. I dont want to demo it in size 3 when I am a grip size 1.

    i think what youre saying is a general statement, but you should definently try out the raptor if you think you want to. Just keep in mind that if you arent as financially secured as some others, buying several 9 oz racquets may be a waste since within a year, you are bound to get stronger and find it way too light
