    OK here is the problem....I used to play w/ Tecnifibre 325s and loved them but have been looking for somthing more maneuverable so i can generate more Headspeed and not get my arm tired in a match. Right now i sold my TFs quickly bc i got offered an amazing deal. currently while waiting to demo I am usin a POG mid 4Stripe ive had in my closet, the racket is wonderful but the HS is too small and its too heavy.

    I have a strong semi western FH that is very off on timing occasionally, a weak serve which i am tryin to improve, and i like to volley alot.
    Can anyone reccomend a lighter players orriented racket??
    I am looking to demo a Dunlop MFil 300 and 200 97, Tecnifibre 315, and Prince 03 tour MP....i'm not sure whether i like stiff rackets or flexible so this is kind of confusing..but i do know that there is no babolat racket for me

    By the way i talk i may sound like a noob, but i have been playing for almost 4 years.
    tell me if any of this doesnt make sense

    If a volkl i think i would go for the DNX 9, from what i hear the 10 is a bit heavy

    I think the blade would be wrong for you; the swing weight is relatively high. I would try the nPro Open or the new ksurge.

    I have previously hit with it before in match and the SW wasnt a problem....
    I thinkSW a bit misleading factor in choosing rackets for me...I can handle the nblade, head instincts, and other high SW rackets that are light in static weight, so i think only static weight and balance matter the most. The Prince 03 tour is one of my faves, i hit w/the mid and the weight didnt seem overwhelming so i am going to demo the MP, also want to demo a TF racket (dont know which one btween the 315, 305, and 320?) RDX500 MP (didnt like the RDS)

    i would suggest the nblade 98 and the flexpoint radical mp. i cannot say anything about the tf's, prince's, dunlop's, volkl's since i have no possibility to demo.

    Pffft, like I'd know
    So you liked the 325 but it's too heavy? Why not the 320 or 325 as have been previously stated by nhstennis?

    yes the 325 was great but i got heavy and it significantly slowed my spin and timing causing me to hit the ball late....Right now im torn between which tecnifibre to demo: 320, 315, or Tfeel305!

    VOLTRON- is the 320 easy to swing around?? If thats light enough ill just demo that bc ive heard the best feedback from it...also want to demo a RDX which is the same weight if its maneuverable enough
