Long time player in 4-4.5 range that has been only playing sporadically the last 3-4 years. A little history. Had tennis elbow pretty serious about four years ago after switching to a Head Radical OS. The Head was partly to blame, but so was my backhand and serve. Elbow is fine now. Strokes are better technically, but I am rusty and want to get serious again this summer. Went back to my previous old frame-the Prince CTS DB26 midsize. This racquet is heavier than the Head Radical, more flexible, and probably a bit more head light balance. The Prince DB26 was probably a tweener racquet-not a player's racquet, but not a beginners racquet. (I had previously used a Prince Lightning for years before that). Anyway, I have a pretty fast looping FH and backhand swing hit with moderate to sometimes heavy topspin, use a lot of spin on my serve, and am pretty much a power baseliner, but will come to the net when I get the opportunity. Looking for new frame suggestions. I like the DB26 weight (12+ oz strung with some lead tape at 3/9 o'clock). I am pretty strong and have no trouble swinging this heavy of a racquet. I just don't have the pure strokes to use a true "player's" racquet. I have a friend who switches frames a lot. He was using Pro Kennex 5g. This had no power to me. He is now using a Prince RED O3 midplus. This is too light for me. I like being able to block back hard serves and both of these racquets seem too light or do not have enough pop. Anyway-any suggestions? Basics are (I think) Heavier frame 11-11.5 oz unstrung medium power good spin head light (for my elbow safety) Tweener type frame Thanks for any ideas. I am wondering about some of the Babolat frames. Tried the Pure Drive Team standard a couple months ago. Not bad. A little light, but OK.
