    Hi.

    I just got injured on my right shoulder. I'm doing physiotherapy for a few months.

    I sold my trusted three Babolat Pure Drive racquets i had for about 4 years now.

    I’m now starting to think for a new stick to play after I get well.

    Should i stick to the same model (Babolat PD now with Cortex)? I was noticing that as I improved I needed a heavier frame. Babolat has a strung weight of 320 grams.

    I was thinking

    1) Wilson Prostaff Original 95'' (too heavy?)
    2) Head Prestige Midplus (not the Flexpoint one...you can get them cheap right now)
    3) Head Radical Liquid Metal Tour
    4) Yonex RDS001 MidPlus
    5) Wilson K Factor Six One 95 (this one seems too heavy for me)
    6) Prince O3 Tour

    Coming from the Babolat Pure Drive....which one do you think I should get?

    After i get better. Can't play anything right now.


    My point is: with the Pure Drive I was needing more weight. Wich one of the list do you think is better for adding just a litle weight! Babolat PD is 300g unstrung.

    Will I feel a big diference with a frame that is 320g unstrung? does 20 g makes that much of a diference?

    20g will make a difference, but you might still have arm problems. I would go for either a less stiff racquet. If you really liked your racquet, you should string either the PD or PDC with a multifilament, or gut.
