    Hi,

    I'm new to this forum, but want some advice on selecting a new racquet. I've been playing tennis on and off for 10 years or so (mostly off), and have played with three different types of rackets.

    I originally played with the Wilson Pro Staff OS when I started playing, and then switched to the first generation of the Wilson Hammer OS. I was fond of both these rackets, as they offered a lot of power for me.

    Currently, I am playing with the Head TiS5 and I don't like it at all. It is too light, I get easily overpowered by my opponents, and I can't generate much depth on my shots. I want to switch to something else, but don't know where to start.

    I am a 3-3.5 player, with a solid, consistent, baseline game, strong off both sides, but have an inconsistent serve and am not a strong volleyer.

    I am interested in a racket that can offer me a lot of power, as well as spin. Any suggestions on what rackets to look at and or demo, would be great.

    Thank you!
