I am 3.5-4.0 level player. I like to play aggressive game and like to come to net a lot. I like topspin forehands.My current racquet is Head Xt Instinct MP(9 gr lead at handle+5 gr at 3&9). I want to buy a new racquet. My choices are

1) Wilson Pro Staff 97s
2) Babolat Pure Strike 18X20

I need your advise :)

It is interesting. No one writes :) I wanted to add that how much difference are there in terms of spin between 16X19 vs 18X20 pattern?

Neither is associated with big-spin game, I guess 97s would be better choice out of the two

16X19 has more spin capabilities into it! wider string pattern more space to grip the ball and do spin. Can you test out different racquets or not! If not; then I go with Kyrios Yonex 98DR? or something like that! It the blue and black frame!

Change your string. You haven't told us what string you're using and what tension.
+1 for trying out different strings. Strings make a BIG difference!

Head XT Instinct MP has good spin and also power. What is missing from your current racquet that you are looking from the new one? If you have already narrowed down to only those two, I would pick 97S for more spin and better feel or Pure Strike 18x20 if you are looking for more control, lower trajectory and low power.
