    What would it be. The the Aeropro (yellow/black) was near the top for me. Any other suggestions. Thanks

    The Dunlop AG 4D 500 would be the one. Very stable for a sub 11 oz

    Admittedly I haven't used a racquet in my every day play that light for several years now but I have taken a couple out for a test drive now and again and found the Boris Becker London to be surprisingly stable in that range.

    My wife found it stable enough to drop from her heavier frame to start using it as well as a 4.0 player that joins us now and again.

    A DunlopAero500 seems plenty stable to resist hard shots, but then I use a 5/8 grip size, been for 37 years.

    I would add any Head Radical and Babolat Pure Storm to this list along perhaps with the Prince O3/EXO3 White.

    I am using the demo now and it looks to be the right one! I am also going to demo the 105 just to make sure before I buy it.

    Strung? The Volkl V1 weighs in at 10.8oz strung and is very stable, comfortable and controllable.

    Unstrung, the Volkl Organix 10 (295g) is 10.5oz and the most stable in its class, imo. The Wilson K/BLX Blades are a little heavier, also solid and I found the Prince O3 Hybrid Shark mp surprisingly stable.

    I just picked up a couple of Head Youtek Insticts and they seem to be pretty stable. They weight ~11oz strung. They swing pretty light.

    Yup, have her try one of these. Stable, low swingweight, but sub 11 static weight and a great frame. Medium power, open string pattern, good all around stick.

    EDIT: Also, agree with the EXO3 Tour Team. Another very good racquet, and stable.

    I ditto the Wilson K/BLX Tours. One of my hitting partners use them and even though I hate anything near even balance racquets, they are pretty fun hits. Another racquet I have briefly hit with that fits the bill is the Prince EXO3 Black Team.

    The Babolat Pure Storm GT is 10.4 oz (unstrung), 98", very comfortable. I've been playing on them for the last several months and love it!

    Without a doubt.. the Yonex Vcore 100S
    Waz's racquet is the most stable and gratifiying light weight racquet available..

    The ProKennex Ki 15.You can easily customize it to 10.5 oz and it is more stable than most 12 oz rackets.
