    I think out of those the FP radical Tour and the o3 tour would proabably be the best baseliners sticks.

    a couple of guys i know just love the OC3 Red (correct name???). red with the huge holes. they think it practically revolutionizes the racquet.

    i don't believe in that c**p, even my coach said there was no difference and wasn't a good racquet at all?
    weird?

    How are you struggling on your serve? You should ask your coach what he thinks the issue is... just bad form, or slow racquet speed, bad tosses, etc. That might tell you more than changing your racquet. But since you asked...

    Are you a big, strong guy? The reason I say is that the n6.1 95 is quite a hefty racquet... I especially noticed it on serves. If you can swing it as fast as say an LM Prestige, then you'll definitely get some pop, but I found that at the peak of the serve, I just couldn't get it around fast enough. I'm not a little guy really, never had a problem with a weighty racquet, even the PK 5G PSE. It's just something about the balance of the n6.1 95 that makes it unweildy to me, and this is coming from an 8+ year user of the Pro Staff Classic 6.1. If you are a strong guy, give it a look, it's really, really solid. Personally I'm not a fan of the HyperCarbon feel of it and prefer the PSC 6.1, but everyone is different.

    Power and Control reminds me of the Prestige series. Of the different Prestiges I've tried, they've all been excellent at serving up bombs, especially flat ones. I would certainly check out the LM Prestige MP to get more serve juice.

    Just some random thoughts.

    Yonex sticks are particularly suited to your level and style of play. Forget the Head crap. You will find your nirvana with those little ole Japanese...

    If you feel you have good form on your serve then demo racquets till you find one that does what you want it to do without changing your form.

    I think the POG MP is a great racquet...

  13. I use the H6, and I like it. I'm about a 3.0 baseliner, and it usually gives me the spin and power I want on my serves.
