    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I am a big hitter who tends to stay at the baseline and I want to become more versatile in net transition, net play, and all-around court play.

    Verasatile is an adjective often used for Yonex racquets.

    That was my guess, based purely on the number of decent players I face using them, and the fact that they are all over the bay and go quick. A little too light for me, but very nice and very customizable.

    I can keep one in my bag and slap a few oz. of lead on it for a back up to my 6.1 95's or just as easily keep it stock for a loaner to beginners to intermediates.

    Dunlop M-Fil 300 honorable mention. I keep one in my bag now for the times my friends break a string and have no back up. It used to be I'd let them borrow one of my sticks, but at 12.5oz and up , it made for a few short days quickly for players not accustomed to heft.

    Your best stick is obviously what works individually for you, but I look at your question as what stick would I have in my bag to accommodate the most players?

    tweeners such as Babolat Pure Drive or APD.

    * Large head size = less shanks, more power
    * Open string pattern = more spin, more control
    * light weight = easier to swing for 2 to 3 hours without getting tired
