If you want a cross between a prestige and APD, Speed Pro is a good way to go.

It is a polarized stick which makes it whippy per weight and is great for a player with developed stroke looking to both drive and hit with a lot of spin.

For flat drivers it may be a bit too much power, not enough stability and less than plush feel. For full western spinsters it may be too low of a launch angle, but if you want a racket that does both Speed Pro is great.

I have +10 grams on top of the loop and 10g of silicone in the handle, for even more polarization and plow.

Here is me hitting with it:
Pure Control Tour: leather+og, 5g lead up top, 16L poly @ 52lbs = 12.68oz
