I was playing with my new Dunlop Maxply McEnroe last night and decided that I had it strung much too tight so I put it back in the bag (getting it restrung with a softer string and about 3 pounds less today). I pulled out the RDX500 Midplus and it just wasn't working for me. I then went back to my Yonex Nano Speed RQ7 Midplus and my shots felt so sweet with this racquet. They were solid, powerful, controlled, and had amazing spin. But at times I was reminded why I typically prefer a 27" racquet (the NSRQ7 is 27.5"): my service toss is way too low so getting the racquet around on my serve is a little difficult (I know, toss the ball higher, but it's difficult to break a 20 year old habit) and the racquet, with the extra 1/2", is a little slow on volleys (solid but slow). I tried to take specs similar to the Nano Speed RQ7 and use the Racquet Finder Tool. Unfortunately most of the racquets with similar specs have 18 main strings and my game relies heavily on spin so I tend to shy away from racquets with more than 16. Racquets with 16 mains and similar specs are: - Babolat Pure Storm Team - Dunlop M-Fil 200 Plus '06 - Dunlop M-Fil 300 - Fischer M Speed Pro Number One Light 98 - Prince 03 White (but I just finished a playtest of this racquet and it's not for me) - Prince 03 Hybrid Shark Midplus The only thing that concerns me with the above racquets is the power level. For some reason I just get a lot of controllable power out of the Nano Speed RQ7 (strung with Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power 16L mains @ 60 pounds and Gosen OG Sheep Micro 16g crosses at 58 pounds). Do you think any of the above racquets might play similar to a shortened version of the Nano Speed RQ7? I thought maybe the Pure Storm but when I playtested it back in 2004 the only thing that stood out was the excellent combo of power and control. At the time I tested it I really wasn't "into" lighter racquets since I had been playing with the POG Mid and Hyper ProStaff 6.1. Also, is there a new Storm coming out? Any chance the Pure Storm might be droping in price soon? Thanks for any input!!! TripleB PS: Hopefully reducing the tension and string at 57 pounds will make the Maxply McEnroe work perfectly and I won't have to look any further!!!
