    I played with the babolat pd cortex and the o3 hybrid hornet recently. I was wondering, what compares to the bab in terms of power and spin, if anything? I always have trouble finding....I think corresponding models is a good term, of differnet brands. For example is the Flexpoint 4 around the same power level? Thanks for replys.

    Nothing has the power and spin of the babolat? Maybe that is less stiff. Nobody has tried both the Flexpoint 4 and the Babolat?

    have tried the flexpoint 4 and the apd.... apd is way too stiff for me, while flexpoint 4 is a very nice racquet....

    Does the flexpoint get as much spin as the apd?

    fp4 is very light at the net, you can swing very fast on the ground strokes too... no problems on the heavy exchange too

    Of the ones that I have had brief hits with I would say in order from closest to the power and spin of a Babolat PD would be :

    Volkl DNX 8
    Prince O3 White
    Yonex RDS003
    Wilson nPro Open
    Head Flexpoint Instinct
    Tecnifbre Flash 290
