    I am looking for a new tweener racquet. I am currently playing with the Prince Precision Michael Chang Longbody Oversize. I am an intermediate player. I tend to stay on the baseline and hit one-handed back-hands. I would not want to spend much more than $100. I want my new racquet to be about 100 square inches, the balance to about 0, and 27 inches long because 28 inches feels too long. i have not demoed but I have been looking at the Prince O3 Hybrid Hornet Midplus, the Wilson K Factor Ksurge, the Prince EXO3 Hybrid 100, and the Wilson K Factor Ktour Team.FX. I am not sure which racquet to get. Any recommendations are welcome. Thanks.

    Any of over 15 rackets would work just fine.
    I came off the ChangOSExtended also, now playing with DunlopAero 500 from 200's, from LMRadMids, from TTOS's. Try the Tour500 for a little more pop.

    How bout the O3 Hybrid Shark? It has nice control/pop. The 500 Tour is the best tweener IMO.

    This thing is probably the most unappreciated racquet ever. It has the pop/spin of a Pure Drive, but has the control and softness of something like a Pure Storm Team or Radical MP.

    I loved the 4D 500 tour. I killed with it, but it also killed my shoulder in the end.

    Thanks for the help. The Aerogel 500 tour sounds like the best choice. What string and tension should i put on it?
