    Hi All,

    Recently I've been interested in a 100 inch frame, currently playing with the RQis 1 tour and wanted to test something less demanding with a nice blend of control and power and found these racquets as very simillar (didn't want to add the Prince Shark that has simillar specs to)

    What would you say are the basic differences, pros and cons on these ones?

    Thanks and regards
    ADSO!

    for starters, definitely don't even demo the hybrid shark (if thats the shark you're talking about) absolutely no feel, even compared to the pure drive. other than that, i'd be interested to hear pd/ extreme pro comparisons too.

    On the wilson side, the npro open and kpro open play very similiar. So you may want to do some searches to get some existing perspectives.

    what are the problems you're having with rqis1? you say less demanding, if the problem is the weight then you'll get a different answer than if it's the feel etc.

    You really thought so? I actually thought the Kpro didn't feel half as good as the Npro, but it did offer more control.

    Npro had more spin and power

    Kpro felt worse but with better control

    Thats IMO. Also, out of the three you put up there, I like the PD best. Good power and control and some nice spin.

    I've hit with both and couldn't tell the difference. I went with the npro open because it's $80 cheaper, no brainer really.

    Hi All, thank you for your responses.

    Regarding what I said of a less demanding racquet, I was meaning a more powered one.. when I play long games I start loosing consistency and deep while in the middle of the second set.. I probably need to do some workout ;).

    I really like the feeling of the RQis 1 tour... I'm not thinking in changing it yet.. But I was guessing if a more powered racquet could help, also I'm seeking for control...

    When I spoke of the Shark I was meaning the old one.. Turbo Shark not the O3.. long time ago I was told the pure drive came from that one.. as today extreme & npro open are the competency for the PD.

    Thanks!
