    I had been playing with the Prestige Classic for five years until last summer, when I switched to the Tour 90. I wanted to play with more variety (think Sampras vs. Philippoussis), but I can't get used to it! I have always had an all-court style. I am using a lot more spin now, which I like for consistency, but when I try to hit a flat shot, it lands WAY out. At these times, the head shape feels really clumsy. With the PC I had no problems generating power. I might have had even more power because I could swing it faster while keeping control, even when weighted toward 13 oz. Also lately I have only been playing one or twice a week/month. I know what people say regarding the 6.0 85 and Tour 90(?): it's a good racket when you're on, but when you're not, it's the worst.

    Should I stick with the Tour 90 and just try to play more, or go back? I still have a Super RD-Tour 90 and maybe I'll like it more now. But are there any rackets that are in between the PC and Tour 90 regarding head shape, flex, etc?

    You should really consider going back to the Head. Remember Safin tried to play with a Dunlop and ended up tearing up his contract and going back to his beloved PCs.

    How can you compare yourself with those players...think about your game and not about some pro and his racket!
