    I'm planning on buying a new racquet, just not sure which one will be best. I know more or less what I want: open string (16x19), rather flexible, over 300 grams, narrow beam, midplus headsize, rather headlight... So my three main options as of now are:

    --Head YT IG prestige pro
    --Prince EXO rebel 93
    --Volkl C10 pro

    What do you think? How do these racquets compare to each other? Which one do you think is best? Suggestions accepted.

    Why not the exo3 tour 16x18? The rebel is a 18x20, 95 headsize, soft players frame. The prestige pro is rather stiff. I've never hit with the volkl. Out of those 3, I'd go with the rebel, just because I like how soft it is and it gets a good bit of spin out of the 18x20. I'd consider the exo3 tour if I were you though. It is exactly the stick you've described

    I think the IG Radical Pro is more appropriate than the Prestige Pro....

    It is more flexible than the Prestige, but not as head light.

    Rebel 93 doesn't exist and the rebel 95 has a 18/20 pattern. The 98 would be more in your favor although its not that headlight.

    Exo3 tour is super flexible.

    Very true. My thinking, though, is that you can rectify balance (while improving feel through the addition of silicone), whereas you can never really make a racquet flexier. A compromise either way.

    You might also want to consider the Dunlop Bio 200 Lite, matches your specs pretty well.

    This!

    I just picked one up and it's nice in stock form, I'll add a leather grip and some lead. On sale now in a few places too so grab a bargain.
