    I did a shootout over the weekend between 4 of my rackets which are Volkl C10 Pro, Yonex rd ti-50, POG mid and Prince Precison Equipe. I enjoyed the soft feel of the Volkl and Yonex but I played best with the Equipe. Something about the weight and stiffness combined with the sweet spot suspension gave it a unique feel and made it easier to hit winners and it was also great for a chip and charge type of a game. The only problem as I remember with this racket is that there are more shocks transmitted to the arm due to the stiffness and it can get a bit heavy after long hours of play.
    Has anybody played with this racket and can recommend another model with similar playing characteristics but a little friendlier on the arm?

    The PK 5g had almost identical specs as far as power, control and weight were concerned on the RacquetTech grid a few years back. My doubles partner at that time use the Equipe MP standard length and the 5g almost interchangably.

    Slaz Pro Braided, a lighter more responsive version of the PSC 6.1. I played with the Equipe for a couple of years and it was tough to play 3 sets with, I can play all day with the Slaz
