    So... I think im going to get a head edge, the 81sq one, sounds perfect, except im not sure which one would be best? (actually I'd prefer a simillar donnay, but have no idea which one that would be)

    looking for a weight of no more than 12.5oz and NOT super flexy. I dont want it to feel like rubber, I want a more modern feel.

    They the Special Edition Edge or the Graphite Edge. The Special Edition looks more like a modern racket. But they both play very similar. The TXE is a great stick too but hard to come by. There is a Special Edition on the bay right now if you want that one

    TXE or Graphite Edge are your best bets. They are heavy and pure graphite composition. Special Edition is a graphite composite, looks like ceramic and probably lighter and much flexier than the former.

    there are so many different types of Donnay so its is hard to say what you are looking for.

    I haven't seen this one. Also, I don't know any Donnay similar to Graphite Edge (80 sq inch). Most of Donnays I know are 85 sq inch (Pro Staff clones?) or larger.

    My Graphite Edge just arrived from America this morning - it's the older matte version and swings nicely (for a 393g racket :twisted:), I'll take it out for a hit sometime and let you know what I think.

    I play with a 90 sq. in anyway so it shouldn't be too difficult to handle.
