    I am trying to switch from my Prince Rebels to perhaps the Wilson K Blade 98.
    I tested the K Blade and it is okay but the Rebel seems to give you a lot more power on the serve and a heavier topspin ball.

    Any other suggestions?

    If you haven't done this already...

    Go to the racquet finder page on the TW website. Check the box next to Prince and the click on check manufacturer. Your stick is on the 6th page so keep clicking next until you find it. There are 24 frames that have similar stats to yours and you should go through the list and demo some of them.

    Other than that I'd hate to suggest any parrticular frames without getting a little bit more about your play style, experience, NTRP level, etc.

    You could try the Prince Tour Diablo MP, it has a larger stringbed (100 vs. 95), more open string pattern (16x18 vs. 18x20), and is 1/4" longer (27 1/4" vs 27"). Another option is the Prince Tour Diablo Mid, it has a smaller stringbed (93 vs. 95), slightly more open string pattern (16x20 vs. 18x20), and is the same length. The only thing is that I'm not sure on the weight on the TT Rebel, the Diablo MP is 11.7 oz strung and the Diablo Mid is 12.2 oz strung. In Prince's offerings, the Diablo replaced the TT Rebel I believe in 2003(?).

    I second this one, but I would like to know what you play like before I truly say anything.

    Modern Open stance forehand. More of a heavy drive topspin ball, big serve. Drive backhand. Twist second serve. More of a baseline game but comfortable at net.

    I tried the warrior, but did not really like it. Its to light does not give me the type of deep heavy shots I get with the rebel.

    That's unusual, given that the TT Warrior is heavier. Perhaps it's a swingweight issue.
