Which racquet deserves a shot?

GotGame?

Rookie
I am now finally presented the chance to demo, as I have now found a decent store to get tennis goods.

As a downside, the selection of racquets brands is limited. I am limited to Prince, Wilson, or Head. Last time I went to get my racquets strung, I noticed the ncodes from Wilson, Flexpoints from Head, and the Shark and "More" racquets from Prince. Would there be any racquets worth demoing from that selection for a 4.5 all-around player? I would like to narrow down my choices.

The racquets that intrigued me were the Federer pj racquet, the Flexpoint instinct, and the Shark.

Thanks in advance for your assistance,
Ralph

I'm using the Prince TT Bandit MP. I would like something with that type of feel and head size, but not so stiff. I don't want anything too head heavy or head light. The balance on the Bandit is fine, and anything around even balance should be suitable. I also desire to up the anty on the weight of my racquets.

check the prince TT Hornet out!, although it is an old racket, its has great feel and maneuvability, and i must say awesome on serves! don't let the new technology fool u, its all just advertising gimmick, ncode, flexpoint, liquidmetal....etc, and i don't believe in them at all. i also have a Prince Shark, its not that good compared to the Hornet, although it had alot of pop but i found it to be stiff.
just add some lead tape at the 3, 9 o'clock position on the TT Hornet, and you'll be fine.

I demoed the wilson npro surge and surge x, shark, all the radicals and the instinct, o3 tour and a few others that were not worth mentioning....

just demo everthing you think you would like, i keep comming back to the tour radical so i ended up with that...i went from a tweener to a players stick and i love it...

You might try the Wilson nTour - same head size as the Bandit, more flexible, just a little heavier IIRC and even balance.

i agree with vinnier. The head flexpoint tour is an excellent racquet. I love the weight to it, feel, stability, almost everything about it. I suggest you try a demo on this one. Also, it has the extra heft that you mentioned you wanted.
