    Hi,

    I have been trying to find some extra frames of this raquet without success: Babolat Pure Control MP (100sq in), std length (27 in). This one used to come with a pop-on headguard.

    My question is: which other raquets most closely resemble this stick? I.e. weight, balance, feel, power/control, etc.

    I am a 4.5 player. Mostly a baseliner, hit with plenty of topspin, not a big serve, lots of control, not that much power.

    Thanks for your advice.

    I heard they changed the Control line to the Pure Storm Tour. Check it out.

    I used one for a while and I'd say the Pure Storm Tour would be the closest in the Babolat line but it is flexier. Outside of that, I would say the TF 320 VO2 Max is fairly close and something else which isn't too far off is the Fischer Magnetic Tour UL spec which is slightly lighter and flexier.

    Then maybe Dunlop aerogel 4D 200 16/19 or try KBlade 98 -beam width and cross section

    Tec Tfight 320 V02 is very similar in spec but i think the Yonex RDiS 100 Midplus is the one. Its spec is very similar its just the flex is lower but it has a block of graphite above the handle which makes the racket feel stiffer and very stable.
    Its a really solid, comfy racket with some pop, good spin and control.
