You can get away with this and win a few games at your club but if you want to move on and not be destined for tweenerdom forever get a racquet with a bit of heft to it and concentrate on developing a nice long stroke. You'll frame a few more balls but will get great sensation when you do middle the ball. There are decently weighted racquets that aren't necessarily 95sq inches. The Solinco looks pretty good (I've never had a hit) but here's another one that may suit you.

Nice specs, a real pleener. You should definitely demo rackets in that spec range.
