    Lately been searching for a racquet that plays overall well but more than anything good for groundstrokes and also spin friendly (but not much), i dont mind the weight (at least that is less than 300g) and head size from 95 to 100, for the last thing not more than 160$.
    Also if its good for serve that would be good too but that is just an extra, thanks.

    I would test Dunlop 300 tour. And if you are good 4.0 or higher Prince rebel 95.

    HEAD Extreme Pro 2.0 is an excellent racquet from the baseline.

    i'd also agree with the prince 03 white.

    many players loved that frame.

    the ki5pse, all you have to do is hit the ball clean! and the racquet will reward you with so much power.
    nevermind it's over 300g's

    You know that Dunlop Bio 200+ that Davydenko tried to use for a while produces tremendous groundstrokes. It just brutalizes the ball. Cheap now too.

    The head graphene speed pro really is a dominant stick for baseline bashes IMO. Tons of spin in a 18x20 pattern, really good power, maneuverable. Also a good serving stick. Volleys were a little iffy, but I'm a terrible volleyer.

    Is that the one you went with, Mike? Sounds like you really like it! Glad you finally have your right match.

    Nah, I've stuck with the pro open until it needs replacing :) it is definitely a racket I would switch to though

    Wilson Pro Open -

    IMO Wilson marketed this frame extremely poorly - the paint job is flat out ugly- but the frame is solid in every aspect.

    Three years and it's still the one -

    WC Black5Edge 55 lbs / XOne BiPhase 57 lbs and 335 grams total weight is a magical setup for me-
