    My dad currently uses a Prince o3 Hybrid Spectrum MP, and strings it at 59lbs with KlipperUSA full syngut string. What my dad would like is something with more power, but about the same flex. My dad is an all court player, and mostly plays doubles but occasionaly plays singles. he's got a 1H backhand, and seriously can do anything. He has a western grip (I think), and would prefer something with a bit of topspin potential. ty guys :D

    Because Dad *wants* and deserves a new stick :) I second the Black. It has the power and spin potential you are looking for.

    Good question. idk, I think it's because he also wanted something heftier, but I'm not 100% sure. Lead tape isn't going to happen...my dad has something against lead tape, I think. I don't know the exact details, but it had to do with gramps, haha.

    I'll go ahead and suggest the Speedport Black. ty :D

    Why not just get some rackets in similar specs for him to demo?

    It's tough enough to get a racket for yourself getting one for someone else isn't going to be any easier.
