I thought about taking a closer look at the Gold 99 but was afraid it would weigh a little more than what I want...especially after adding an overgrip, rubberband, and head tape (probably 11.8 oz or more). My thought with the Donnays was to look at the Silver 99 or Black 102, get the Donnay Customization Kit, and then make the weight to my liking. Thank you for your input.

I actually demoed it and in looking at my notes, the demo seemed strung a bit high, but I said: "brittle feeling, excellent topspin, slice sits up too much, not enough power, good control, but not enough power."

When I demoed this racquet it had a poly in it and seemed strung around 45 pounds...but I felt it had a good amount of power. I was surprised by how much it had. I thought: "above average spin and a good amount of power for such a flexy racquet....I just couldn't get used to the extra power (balls flying), I always felt like I had to hold back something on my groundstrokes." Again it may have to do with how low it was strung.

Thanks for everyone's help so far.
