    Hello guys. i'm new to this forum.i need help in choosing a new racket since my current racket is quite old.i'm using prince phycoon ti.

    i started playing tennis 4 years ago for 2 years then i stopped. just started back playing 3 months ago. i looking for a racket that give me more control and comfort.

    i'm a baseliner and hit heavy topspin with my forehand and flat and slice with backhand.i rely of my strong forehand and serve so i need something than give me more control

    i hit flat for my 1st serve and topspin for 2nd.

    currently i'm considering drive z lite or drive z tour and someone recomended head youtekk 16x19 but i think it's too expensive. if u have any other ideas, do tell me

    demo is not available in my country so i really need your help.

    Hey, I reccomend the Wilson N Pro Open. I currently use it, and it's great for baseliners. It's got the control, and the power if you swing out. It's GREAT for spin, and it adds like 10 mph to your serve. It's only 99 if you're looking for cheap racquets.

    Radical OSs.

    Racket for everyone. Not outstanding in anyways, but no drawbacks either. And comfortable.

    a couple of other options

    The Wilson k tour pro
    Prince Warrior MP

    Both are very good frames. K tour pro is under rated, warrior speaks for itself.

    If you're looking for something cheap, try the LM Rad OS/MP. For $70, its good stock, but leaves plenty of room for customizations later.

    is that $150 USD? you can get quite a fair amount of racquets with that much money. if you're looking for something with more control, i would definitely recommend a racquet that is more headlight, weighing about 11.5+ oz. Try using the racquetfinder on TW. Put in some specs you like and see what it recommends.
