I am a 3.0-3.5 baseline player with a semi western forehand and a 1 handed backhand. I have been playing with the wilson H tour and it is ok, but I think that I have been hitting balls long, and it lacks some control. I am using the 105 head size. I was debating between the Head Liquidmetal Instinct and the Prince O3 tour. I was thinking that the Prince O3 tour may be too much of an advanced racquet. I try to use topspin, but I am not sure how the string pattern affects it. I know the Head has an 18 x 19 pattern and the Prince has a 16 x 18 one.
