There is this feeling when I try a new OS frame..the feeling is always special because you never know what you will get...

So.... I am still fighting with Head MG Radical OS but I would try something will a little more spin and maybe power,but i still eant lots of control.

anything?

Gee, Spin, Power and Control. Not asking for much are you?

Might as well add in lightweight, flexible with plenty of plow.

But seriously, if there was a powerful racket with lots of control, everyone would use it because what else would you need? I'd say the best frames for a blend of power, spin and control are probably the blades. The 104 is your OS model. The SW autograph probably is the best of the 104's but they aren't making it anymore I don't think.

Prince phantom graphite 107 should be released soon (if not already...)
not sure if it will meet all of your OP criteria’s... but seems to be an exciting release amongst Prince fans.

Yes, get lessons and improve your technique. The more you improve your technique, the more spin, power and control you will find.

I just picked up three of the v7 SW104 because I didn't know that it was going to continue either, but it looks like there is a possibility of a new version coming out. The v7 SW104 is still available on Wilson's website, but Tennis Warehouse hasn't had it available for months.

Spin capability is probably the weakest aspect, but it is a high control frame for being the length that it is.

Admittedly while I love my SW104 Blade, the POG 107 plays pretty much the same at half the price.

There was a Ltd Edition Radical Anniversary released about a year ago that had the 107 sq inch head size and 12 oz weight and 335 SW. It’s a pretty good racquet if you can find one.
On the other hand a very different option was the Volkl Super G 7 295 with its 104 head and 73 RA but lots of comfort technology and very thick beam to give you huge sweet spot.
Another Volkl frame that has just been released but in a more lighter realm is the V Cell 4 which normally has a 105 head and 285 g weight but it is usually a bit longer. This might be worth a try.
Finally I would be inclined to try a frame that crosses the line between MP and Oversize and that would be the Angell 101 or Volkl V1 Pro. The Angell is a new release whereas Volkl haven’t yet updated their V Feel V1 Pro but I quite like the Organix version ( Black) and the SG version ( chocolate and orange). These two racquets are great, they aren’t really oversized but have a blend of characteristics that one may like. The organix has more feel and control where’s the SG is more lively, but both are superbly comfy.
 
Also take a look at the Volkl V1 VFeel OS. Used different iterations for years although now playing with the MP. Very little difference in the playability although the OS is a 110 vs 102 and is slightly longer. Head light, easy on arm. And from what I can see, one of the few OS that comes in a 5/8.
