New toy after X-Mas for me

Semi-Pro
Hi guys,
X-Mas is ove and i hav a few $
So i decide to buy a new toy (racquet). I will not test the stick, i will get the stick very fast ;)
Here are a few models which i find out for me:

- Head FXP Radical Tour
- Prince O3 Tour
- Babolat - dont know which, but i like Baolat
- Wilson NCode 6.1 Tour

Which racquet would you pick and why?

At the moment i havent got a racquet, because i have done a little tennis break, for a few weeks, but i play with a LM Prestige from my coach at the moment.
I will play all of the racquets ;) No thats nonsense but i must have ONE racquet for the next Season.
Hmm my style of play..
I play from the Baseline, like to play my game with a big forehand, also i like to serve big and fast. Personally for me a racquet with 300gr. is to light. I play with a little bit spin.
So my best strokes are Forehand and Serve

Hmm yes i like the Prestige, but i also like the other racquets, i love the Ncode 6.1 Tour, have you played the LM Prestige and the 6.1 Tour?

No, I have both Prestige Classic 600 (not the LM) and the Wilson Tour 90 (as well as 6.0 85), and I like both of them:)

Tour 90 is lighter in the head than the PC600, but both volley well. I feel I serve more angles with PC600 and more power with Tour 90:)

The LM Prestige might be the most accurate in your choices. For S-V, ncode 6.1 90 might be the best, but it's harsher on the arm. Also, the Flexpoint Tour should be good on the arm.

Try to test as much as possible.

look in to the babolat aeropro drive its a great racket for big serves and is just as good at baseline. Buy some lead tape with it to customize it to your weight you want. its at least worth a demo.

Hmm i had the Aeropro 3 times, i dont know if its the right racquet for me, a litte bit more control and the Aeropro were perfect.

M-fil 200 (it's quite cheap now at TW), serves very well, good control, it's 18x20, but you're used with it from Prestige

or

ncode 6.1 95 18x20 (very powerful on both serves and baseline)

or

Volkl 10 V-E Mid (great control and topspin, but you must put the power on serves yourself; great volleys, similar to Prestige)

would be other great candidates, I feel.

But finally perhaps the 6.1 Tour 90 might be the best for you, if you can control it.

I'd say demo, it's important, you want to buy not anything, but something which you like, isn't it?

Ok, maybe ill try the Pure Drive Roddick Edition in January....
But i think i will try the NCode 6.1 and Flexpoint Tour before.

Rafa nick and play with anything other than a Babolat? Try an AeroPro Control. Flexpoint Radical Tour is extremely sweet, but stuck with a Prestige mid.
