    Head ig Prestige s
    Head ig speed mp 300
    Dunlop s3.0
    Im a 5.0 always play flat and in the baseline my forehand is my weapon so control is always needed for my game:)

    I would think that a 5.0 might prefer more stick than a Prestige S or Head MP 300. Both are pretty light. I would go with the Prestige MP or Pro if you like an open pattern.

    Sounds like an Old School Pro Staff is what you need - review and info below

    The ProStaff 6.0 85 is back, exclusively at Tennis Warehouse! The racquet of choice for Pete Sampras when he was on tour and also previously used by Roger Federer (as well as a host of other former greats), the ProStaff 6.0 85 is a legendary player's racquet. Loaded with superb touch, feel and control, this racquet connects the player to the ball. Stronger players will find power to come from their ability to utilize the mass of the racquet (just think of Sampras' crushing serve as an example). This racquet still enjoys almost cult status among 5.0+ level players, although there's no doubt it is not for everyone. However, for the purist player, who possesses solid strokes and is accustomed to a hefty, head light balance and a midsize head, the ProStaff 6.0 is as good as it gets.

    Im looking light racquets for customise my racquet to my desired specs because I liked the open pattern the most and th pro is too stiff thats why I choose the s just because of the stiffness.
    Maybe the weight is too much for me on the 6.0 I demoed and is sooo solid but the weight is too much
    Thanks a alot for your help

    Sorry you're right the Pro Staff is a bit heavy. Good luck in the search - lots of great choices there!

    You may want to look at the pacific XForce or babolat pure storms. Either one lead taped would be a warrior on the courts! I wish I had added lead to my XForce and tried that before I resold it.
