    I've mostly used the Prince Original Graphite OS for the last few years. Love it.

    Thinking of buying some other racquets, for two reasons:

    1. POG OS is hard to get right now and I am down to one.
    2. I have been playing more flat/classic and attacking the net (vs. former style of heavy spin from the baseline) and for me the POG OS is not the best volleying racquet (I know, Annacone played S&V with it and kicked butt, but it doesn't work for me).

    Love the FEEL of the POG. Good weight and balance for me, good medium stiffness. If anything on the stiffness front I would go softer. Generally stringing with full syngut or gut.

    Definitely want an open string pattern.

    Open to all grip pallet shapes.

    Want a headsize 90-100.

    Suggestions?

    Volkl C10 Pro -- newer vs older

    I have been thinking that might be the one but reviews of the recent versions say that it doesn't have the same solid feel as earlier versions. Any feedback on that?

    I haven't hit with the most recent ones but I know a v good player (on these forums too) that hits with a 2010 yellow one and thinks it is amazing. Solid and stable with great touch. I think it is likely splitting hairs. The C10 Pro is very good early or late version (mine is a bumblebee but I would be a 2010 Yellow or the 2012 black cosmetic in a heartbeat.

    Yeah, Agassi, an old POG OS guy, recently switched to this frame.
