    Well, if you're talking about the Mid, I found the Tour Diablo to be WAY more solid than the PS Tour 95. It also had less power but more control; I own both. I feel the Tour Diablo fits my game better, and I just like how it feels.

    The PS Tour 95 felt more flexible, but sometimes it really didn't feel solid; I'm goign to experiment with lead in the coming months once my high school season is over. I was able to hit flat bombs with it though on serves probably because it was sligihtly lighter yet still had a nice headlight balance that I was really able to whip.

    Tried to start a new thread, posted here by accident. Sorry.

    Really? I didn't really find it to be as crisp or stable as the Diablo Midsize.

    Ahh, yeah, I see. WHen it comes to the Diablo MP, it does seem to lack a bit of stability. AMD64, perhaps you can point out which Tour Diablo you're looking at?

    I used to own all of them. The Diablo mid and Diablo MP are totally different racquets. Mid is powerful, stiff, flat hitter's dream; and it does not spin well. MP is soft, spinny, no power kind of racquet. They both have that crisp feel, more so in the Mid. Stability is OK, but lead tape will help.

    The Tour 95 is just an all around horrible racquet. No power, no feel, no stability. It's light and flexy. Great on your arm, but your will most likely get blown away by balls with pace and spin. It's not the same as the PS 95, which is stiff, heavy, crisp, spinny and powerful. If the tour 95 suits your game, then good for you because everyone is dumping it. If you like light racquet, get one that is stiffer (65 to 68 range for power and stability).

    I'm going to agree with bustigal that the Mid and the MP are different racquets; they aren't really similar in any way except the paintjob. Why dont' you just try demoing or is that option not available to you?
