    Hi,
    at the moment i play the Babolat Aeropro Drive, but it dint fits to me because - to much power, not enough control- .
    So i decide to look for a new racquet, i found 2.

    1. HEAD Flexpoint Radical Tour
    2. PRINCE O3 Tour

    Im a powerful Baseline player.
    I wold say both racquets can fit, but which would be more the right for me?
    Any Opinions?

    maybe u could try a RDX500 mp cause its a very solid frame. with some lead at the 3 and 9 i thikn this racket may be hte one for you. I love my rdx500 mp and i leaded it up at the 3 and 9. i string it at 65 with prince synthetic gut duraflex and sometimes BB alu rough. its got major spin potential and its just all all court frame in my opinion. Try demoing you buy it. just my opinion

    Yeah, try RDX 500. Good power + great control and spin.

    hmm @ the TW Review they say that the RDX had no Power,
    @Licky do you have played with the Flexpoint or O3?

    For an 90sq. racquet it has a lot of power.

    Remember before you chuck a $179 rkt, what is lack of control? Usually it is being out of positon and mishitting. If you are perfectly set up and taking a full stroke with good follow through and hitting it long then maybe it is the rkt. However big hitters , Moya , Roddick, Nadal weight up their rkts, therefore more powerful than stock and appear to be able to hit the lines, obviousdly great foot work =great position= great shot. If however you do not like the feel or it transmits too much shock to your arm. Then other favorites of mine are the N Code 6.1 95 and the Volkl C 10 MP

    Try counterweighting the racquet.

    That will increase stationary weight and make the racquet more head light.

    You might want to try a Prestige, perhaps the new LM would be right for you...
