Help me choose a racket please

Hopefully this will be my last question regarding a racket for a while but what would be a good racket for my playing style? Like I have said before I am a baseliner who occasionally comes to net. I have a semi-western forehand and a two-handed backhand with the forehand being the stronger of the two. I can provide power off of the forehand but not so much on the backhand so I need something with a bit of power but with plenty of control too. I slice the backhand quite often and I like to hit drop shots so I need something with good spin potential. I am a farily competent volleyer with, actaully, a better backhand volley than forehand. I would like a racket that weighs at least 11.0 oz. and has a stiffness rating of, at the highest, 65. I would also like the head size to be within 98 and 102 sq. in. I would like the frame to be around 27.5 in. long but it doesn't have to be. Any and all suggestions are appreciated and thanks to all of you who have help me in the past.

Head LIQUIDM Instinct (a tour is better - more control and spin, but is for strong players) or Yonex 300RDX MidPlus.

Thanks Mark. Anyone else have suggestions for me. Is the More Attack MP a good choice? What about the NXG MP? Or the Diablo MP?

Does nobody(besides Mark)know of a stick that might be good for a baseliner who slices sometimes and comes to net occasionally(+ the other stuff)?

I highly recommend the Aeropro Control and Aeropro Control +. They don't seem nearly as heavy as their swingweights indicate... very controllable power... the stiffness rating is high, which normally would bother me, but they still felt great... I would never have guessed how stiff they actually are just from playing with them.

I tried the RDX500 MP about a week ago and liked it ok but it is too pricey for me at the present moment. That is part of the reason I am looking at the More Attack MP. I found it for about $110 cheaper than what TW sells the RDX for.
