    hi, I need help choosing a racquet. Im looking for one that is

    easily manuverable

    great access to spin

    easy on the arm

    nice solid feel

    great control with enough power

    head light with enough weight so that my shots feel heavy

    real nice at the net

    im a 3.5-4.0+ level varsity doubles player. I am currently considering the nPro Open. It would be great if you guys could suggest some other racquets to consider!

    The nPro Open is a little light and stiff given what you're looking for in a frame as I see it. For some comfort and authority on the court, I'd recommend a look at the Yonex RQis 1 Tour or the Fischer M Pro #1. A couple of even heftier bats that I think are rock solid all courters are the Prince NXG midplus and their Hybrid Tour. That NXG mp is quite headlight and easy to handle, but has enough beef to rock the ball or put a boatload of spin on it.

    If you're looking at racquets that are closer to 11 oz., the Volkl DNX 9 has some potential along with perhaps the Dunlop 300's. Here's your "grain of salt" though - I'm a fan of 12+ oz. frames and if you like what the nPro Open has to offer you, then there's nothing wrong with it. A softer "comfortable" racquet may not have the crispness around the net that you like and the nPro has a little backbone to it. A buddy of mine has a pair of them and he's been really happy with their performance.

    Try to get the RDS001 Mid into your demo list. Great racquet, and seems to fit all your criteria.
