    I've been demoing a few pretty light, stiff, powerful frames. PDR, Becker Pro, Volkl powerbridge 8, and Dunlop 4D500 tour. As of now, the 4D500 tour was the best of all. I then hit with my Head Microgel Pro MP, and while the extra weight felt good, it feels a bit unforgiving with off center hits.
    So, I'm wondering what the collective "you" might recommend in around a 100 sq. in., 16 X 18 or 19, head light, under or around 12 0z. frame that would be user friendly, with at least the same power level as my Head radical pro MP or say, a K six one 95, 16 X 19.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    The Gamma T-7 is 16x19, 100sq in, and 11.4oz & 6pts head-light strung.

    So that seems to fit most of what you're looking for. It's very soft and flexy and doesn't provide a lot of power, but it has enough if you have good form and solid groundstrokes.

    It performs particularly well with some lead in the handle. Others also like it with some lead at 3 and 9.
