    I am looking for a new racket and wondered if anyone could give me advice. Lately I've been playing with an old head elite pro 660 modified to 11.7 ounces at 5 pts head light. while I can hit good groundies I think the power is pretty low for me. granted, this is an old racket from the 80's. I am looking for something in the 11.5/11.6 ounce range (possibly leaded up) that offer's a player's frame control but still can give me good access to power--I am not talking huge power but more than a traditional 12 ounce 20mm very head light frame. Does this exist? how about the pro kennex ki 5 or head radical pro? I really don't care for babolat frames and I definitely don't like thick beams like tweeners since I am a relatively flat hitter. I prefer 20-22mm. Lastly do you think these rackets (I mentioned or that you recommend) will offer MORE power than the head elite pro 660?:p

    between the 2 proposed,I'll choose radical but I think for your need a speed is more powerful

    Take a look at the Dunlop 300 series with some lead or the Donnay Pro 1 series.
