Why are you so insistent on replacing your POG Mid? I ask because I have been in the same boat as you...looking for something just under 12 oz. that is stable, maneuverable, and provides a bit of power. I've been playing primarily with the POG OS and nCode 6.1 over the past year, but have demoed all the potential suspects to replace them...RDX 500s, Prince Diablos, NXGs, Volkl Tour 10s, etc. and still find that nothing compares to the solid feeling of the 12 oz.+ racquets (an exception being the ProKennex Ki5 which might be a real winner!). Like you, I'm in my 40s and play an all-court game (4.5+ level), but get worn down deep into matches (hence the interest in 11.5-11.75 oz. frames). I recently tried the POG MP and found it to be great...although I haven't played in the summer heat with it (I'm in Ohio). Please shed some light on why your POG MP is the racquet that doesn't want to be replaced...but will be... :? Thanks!
