I've read that the Prince T22's are an all-around great shoe, with its weight being it's primary negative.

The Nike Vapor 9 looks great and is supposedly very light and comfortable, but it's relatively short life and weak durability has been mentioned as a negative.

The Asics GR 4 is supposedly more stable and durable with better traction than other Asics shoes (and on par with other brands), with the only negative being sizing issues (the GR 4 is long and pointy, like Adidas golf shoes).

So which of these shoes would you get if you were going to play 2 (possibly 3) times a week in recreational/social tennis and league tennis?

I don't know, the Vapor (previous model) don't last long for me, I'm heavy and move aggresivelly enough. They lose support pretty fast.

I stick with Rafa's Nike CrossCourt Ballistec's (fast and flexible enough, more so then Barricades VI imho)
