    New racket demo. Need some advice on some new rackets to demo. Mid 40, 3.5 player, mainly baseline basher with a two handed backhand. Looking for a more control oriented racket. Been using a roddick pure drive but looks like its time to get some less stiff. Need some advice before ordering the demos.

    More control- blx blade. Still hits big, but is weighted a little lighter. Higher sw though so it should swing abut the same as the pdr.

    Pure storm tour- excellent stick if you want to stay with bab. Not the best on serve though.

    Juice pro - same weight as the pdr, more control oriented but hits pretty big.

    Dunlop ftour 300 could be a great option as well.

    Donnay or PS 100, they are similar spec'd but much softer (stiffness-wise) than the PDR.

    Agreed, the Ki5 is an awesome racquet. At your level I would also look into the Ki15.
