Any racquets out there with these specs? I am aware of the SW 104, but I use a grip 5 and it is not made in that size. I am currently using a Head Tour Xtra Long but it is 18x20 and need a little more spin.
Why don't you just get many of the Plus frames out there like the Yonex and Babolat models or the Prince Beast Longbody, take them for a spin and if you feel the need for more length you can extend them that extra half inch easily.
I personally think getting 28" with an open string pattern will buy you more spin but there will be a cost of control.
Intuitively that may seem the case, but isn't control just by mere degrees and mostly due to the hitter's skill set, power, efficiency, visual acuity, etc. A 20-something player who was a product of junior development program in their home country told me the other day that they can play with any racket, but prefer certain types of rackets.I personally think getting 28" with an open string pattern will buy you more spin but there will be a cost of control.
I think people will accept different levels of control as adequate but the definition doesn't change no matter your UTR. Control is the ability to put the ball where you intend to and nothing more than that. The longer the racquet, the more open the string bed, the more variability you introduce into the control equation. You can overcome that loss of racquet control but hitting to larger targets and adding more topspin, which is what many people do. But that doesn't change the fact that a longer racquet with open string patter has a built in lack of precision.The feeling of control is different for the 3.5 player vs UTR 14. When I hit well but with plenty of margin I call that control, whereas some high level college player might call painting the lines control.
If the extra weight isn't a problem, you can build up the grip on an SW104. I use OHBH and used two heat shrink sleeves on the bottom 5 1/2 inches to make a grip closer to a size 6. It adds about 20 grams to the handle.Any racquets out there with these specs? I am aware of the SW 104, but I use a grip 5 and it is not made in that size.

Angells are great racquets. One thing I will say is that I live in PA, and I've purchased 3 Angell racquets before in the past (all 28"), and they run about $230 each shipped. That cost is getting up there (and even more expensive than) with just buying a stock retail frame and having the customization done somewhere like Bosworth.4-string gave a solution in post 2 - You can choose a 28" 16x19 (and all your others specs) on the angell tennis website. They are the best quality rackets on the market
