    Im an AGRESSIVE BASELINE PLAYER who doesnt like to come to the net but I will if I have to. I've got HEAVY TOPSPIN ON BOTH THE FOREHAND AND BACKHAND and like to hit them HARD AND FAST. As far as serves go I have a fast, hard, flat serve and my second is a very "spinny" slice serve.

    What I need in a racquet:
    -Some good weight for power (no more than 12 oz.)
    -Control
    -Some touch/maneuverability (for the occasional trip to the net)

    My current racquet is the Babolat AeroPro Drive. I like it especially because of the speed I get behind it but it needs some weight in the head so I get more power. Sometimes I have a little trouble getting the ball past the service line because there isnt much weight in the head.

    Why don't you just lead up your APD?

    I agree with VGP, you aren't going to find a much better baseline racquet than the APD. At least not one with the spin you want. So you might as well first try to experiment with lead, before spending $180 on a new racquet.
