    Hey guys I really need some help with these new rackets and old racket
    there are so many factors that keep changing my mind and its starting to get to me
    my choices for a new racket are

    the prince dialo
    pros
    - Heard its the most forgiving mid
    - has a 16 by 20 sring pattern means nice spin
    - has awesome specs
    con
    - heard the prince diablo exo3 coming soon so don't want ot waste my money
    - its older and heard it feels like it will break soon
    Yonex RDiS
    pro
    - Its yonex and they rock
    - It emphasizes on spin which is cool
    - yonex is the control man
    - cool color
    con
    - yonex sucks when it comes to serving and power
    compared to the other rackets

    Head microprestige
    Pro
    -its the only mid with an 18 by 20 wow
    - has great reviews
    - seems like nice control
    con
    - the feel seems weird but i might like it

    and just for he hell of it cause it seems awesome

    wilson kps
    pro
    -has awesome power
    - great control
    - nice weight
    con
    - everyone's going to use it
    - its wilson too popular

    also
    prince exo3 graphite mid
    pro
    - it is a classic renewed
    - its 93 inch with some flexabilty
    con
    - its 16 by 18 is that good
    - heard its not like the original

    For me im looking for a racket with alot of control
    I love to hit angle shots and shots that hit the base line
    i serve with alot of aces but i like to fool around with a couple kick serves then and there
    in my racket i like to string it with tecnifibre pro red code at 55 lbs
    im an all court player and my specalty is to run up at the service line and treat it like my base line and hit the balls away from the player
    i love the 18 by 20 string pattern, but i like 16 by 20 also because im a flat hitter, but with the extra spin it rocks
    there great for kick serves too
    so im just asking which racket would best fit for a person who is an all courter, likes alot of control with power, likes to serve bombs, aces and kick serves, and will string it with 55 lb of tecnifibre string
    please help guys
    i lookin gat the head prestige mid cause it seems awesome and drak did a great review on the racket, but there others look great too which one

    Personally, I've noodled with enough different frames to have learned that the string pattern isn't too much of a determining factor of a racquet's performance. Just saying that you shouldn't assume too much when you see either a dense or an open pattern.

    I don't have much experience with any of the frames you're considering, but if you let our pals know what you're using now, they'll probably have some better comparative guidance to offer. Get beyond your assumptions concerning the KPS - if it's the best frame for you, the popularity contest is irrelevant, right?

    Really?
    string patterns arn't a determining factor
    nice that narrows it down ^_^
    thanks man i guess popularity should never be a factor for buying a racket
    though the kps demo was sweet, i didn't really like the extra power that it provided
    thogh maybe if i practice with it more
    i could make it to my deadly wepon
    ill demo it again
    but 93 sinches rock too
    and is headsize a factor
    also what about beamwith
    that can get me also

    there have been some mixed reviews from people. some are saying the pre vo2 was better. i've hit with the 325 regular and xl and they both play pretty well. a bit light, but very maneuverable and solid.
