    What racquets would be good for an older person, that doesn't want something very heavy, not very powerful, but solid, and also something no smaller than 98, and no bigger than say, 105? He hits very flat, off both wings. Also, the cheaper the better

    My guess would be the MFil 300.

    Or the PK Kinetic/Ki series for arm friendliness, esp for an older person.

    Agree with Anirut. For the current price $79.95 that TW is advertising it at, good value doesn't come any better.

    It is light enough, has quite a low swingweight, sufficient power, but yet has a good amount of control.

    Id say under 12oz and over 10.8oz (strung weights) for elbow safety and stability.

    It seems like the mfil 300 or mfil 200 2006 fits nicely. Maybe a LM Radical MP/OS

    That description fits me pretty well and I'm liking the M-Fil 200/2006 - a lot. To me it feels a little more solid and "old school" than the 300. It is a 97 head though if that matters (I can't detect 1 sq.in. when I'm playing to be honest with you.)
