    Are there any midsize frames that are light weight, and also stiff? Like Wilson tour 90, head prestige mids, and yonex mids. All of the big companies have player frames that are all very heavy. The only one that I can think of that makes a light player’s frame is Dunlop with their 100 line, but they are all way to flexible.

    help please

    Mid = player's frame which won't be light
    Maybe the K61 team 95 would be the closest match.

    yeah, but if you wanted to like build your frame up with lead at certain spots. I would not say 95 is a mid frame.

    Roger gets all of his frames really light and then goes from there with lead and stuff. how do I like get those frames.

    Easy, just play like Roger.
    Almagro's frames are based off the Dunlop500T, then adjusted to his liking. That is stiff, it's mid + maybe, and a player does use it.

    Wilson PS Tour 90 Asian version -- 315 grams (or 320?)
    Wilson K 90 Asian version & BLX 90 Asian version -- 320 grams

    And these are stiff.

    I find the Dunlop 100 series fairly stiff. If you can't hit the sweetspot consistently, you will find them a challenge to play with because of the light weight. If you have excellent (aka, better than me) hand-eye coordination, you will love them. I have moved on to more forgiving pastures.

    Oops, just noticed you find the 100 too flexible. To each his own.

    Once again, Dunlop 500's, stiffness 69-71, 10-11oz, it's a little big, but moves thru the air like LMRads. and 200's.

    Even if a 95 would be considered a mid, the K95 team is not stiff
