    order is personal preference

    My preference .... I liked the G325 best overall of this group and preferred this group over all others used in the past 10 years.

    No particular order on mine:

    Volkl Tour 10 Vengine MP
    Vokl DNX 10 MID
    Wilson Ncode 6.1 95
    Babolat Pure Storm Tour
    Babolat Pure Storm LTD
    Babolat Pure Drive Team (some hate it but I hit every shot nicely with it)
    Yonex RDX500 Mid (volleys every so nicely)
    Head Prestige Classic 600
    Dunlop MW200 (if you've go the juice to use it)
    Prince POG MP

    There are others but these have been standouts although there is a big variation in frames here.
