Tweener rackets that are somewhat overlooked

Right now I am searching high and low for rackets with a low-medium power level, 62-70 stiffness, 100 sq Inch head, and about 11 oz. I have found thus far= Wilson Pro Open, Babolat Pure Drive GT, Babolat Aeropro Drive GT, Head Youtek IG Extreme, Yonex RDiS 300 Midplus, Technifibre TFlash 300 Speedflex, and Volkl Organix 8. Any others that play like these??? Similar specs?? I would like to search the whole field before I purchase another racket like I did before (blindly).

Here are a couple more that I really like: Head IG Instinct MP, Dunlop Biomimetic 400, Dunlop Biomimetic 500 Tour.

Puredrives and Aero's arent overlooked. Its the BLX Pro Open, Yonex 100S, BB London (here in Australia) and Volkl's that are overlooked.

Head IG Instinct, Becker DC Pro or Wilson BLX Pro Open. You can't go wring with any of those 3.

Try the Yonex V Core 100 S

Mike,

I think you will like Yonex V Core 98 D much more than the 100S. The 100S is very light feeling frame. It feels lighter than it really is. Look at these reviews. The only thing I disagree with is the 98D stiffness. I didn't feel the frame was stiff compare to my Pro Opens. But I didn't play with it for 5 hours either.

The 100S is simply way too light for my game. I have my Pro Open up to 328 grams. Even the stock 98D feels a little light to me.

Both the 100S and the 98D have relatively low swingweights, but with a little lead the 98D could be something I would consider if the BLX Pro Open didn't exist. ;) The demo I used had Yonex 850 in it, but I will ask the shop to let me hybrid it with a softer co-poly/NRG2 setup so I can demo the frame alone, and not the frame and the strings.

I would like to hit with it a few more times with a different string setup.
