Demo the Slazenger Pro Braided. 16x18 string pattern and 95 sq in headsize. These racquets were made to be clones of the Wilson Pro Staff Classic (iirc). However, the Slazengers are only 11.5oz, and the lighter weight makes them not as powerful as the Wilson.

With 4g of lead tape at 9 and 3 o'clock and some weight in the handle, my racquets are 12.0oz, 6 pts HL, and perfect for my all court game.
USTA computer-rated 4.5
4 matched Wilson Steam 99's / 4 matched Tecnifibre TFight 325 TPs
