    What racket would you recomend me.First of all,(I have ATP ranking and) I play pretty aggressive.One of my strongest hits is the serve and a pretty flat forehand.I prefer Hard-court.i am a lefty.I am 1.86 m tall and my weight is about 75.5 kg.
    I am playing a Head Microgel Radical, which I like pretty much.
    I also had a surgery in the shoulder (the nerve was jammed).That's why I switched from the prestige flexpoint to the radical one.I thought the racquet was to stiff, but it had nothing to do.

    So if I would have the chance to switch to a wilson K blade 98, a prince rebel Team, a dunlop 4D aerogel 300, Aerogel 4D 300 tour and Aerogel 4D 200.Which of these racquets would you guys recommend me?
    Which other racquets should I consider?

    Yeah right, you have an ATP ranking and you come and ask us advice about which racquet to use. Aren't you supposed to have a sponsorship? I am sorry, but I just don't buy this.

    First of all, I said I have ATP ranking because I do not know how this 4.0 and 5.0 stuff works.Sponsorship depends on your ATP ranking and national ranking.I only have 4 ATP points, which is not a lot.
    I do have offers of Dunlop, Prince and Wilson. The thing is, I only get 50 % on Wilson and Prince.Normal, as they are two of the best racquets in market.Dunlop gives me 100%.So the problem is, that
    I was not able to test none of them as they do not send racquets into international.(By the way, I am from a country where it is easier to get sponsorship).So good so far, you would say, so take dunlop...The thing is, if I take thhem I would have to play with them for one full year, which wouldn't make much sense as I am not sure about the racquet.

    If I did offend you with my question, looking for some people that tested the racquets and could tell me about the sensation they had and give me advice, then I am sorry.

    Go with the 4D 200, but demo first.

    I still don't believe you though.

    Thanks god!I really appreciate that at least someone forgot about the misunderstanding and gave me an answer.
    I do not want anybody to believe me that I have ATP-ranking, because I do not care.If I could edit the post I definately would put it away.I just don't know how this 4.0 and all this stuff works.I really appologize.
    The thing is that I I have a lot of time pressure.
    I REALLY APPOLOGIZE.I know nobody cares about my ranking.I would neither care about anyones ranking.So yeah, that is why it is in parentesis ( ).

    Thank you again for the answer,I appreciate it

    Okay, you have cleared some things up now. But we are still lacking more info on your game to be able to advise anything reasonable to you.

    Which type of racquets do you like? MP, OS, or mid size? What is the weight and swingweight you are after? More details about your playing style.

    In fact all of the racquets you mention, seem to me lacking in plow through for someone who wants to play high level tennis.

    I would consider some other racquets like the Head Microgel Prestige series, be it the mid, midplus or pro; if you can get a sponsorship by Head.

    The Prince Exo3 Rebel (the non team version) also seems a nice racquet judging from it's specs and what you said

    Thank you very much for the reply!
    I like MP racquets.I am after a racquet with a weight of 315-320 gr unstrung.and a 18*20 strung pattern.The beam should be arround 21mm.The headsize should not be bigger than 98 inĀ².
    I am not able to get sponsorship with Head.
    But I do not care if I have to pay money, as long as the racquet is good for me.
    Thank you for the suggestions.They are interesting!
