I Need a Racquet.. Wich Racquet?

Ok So here Ill explain my shots:

Forehand: Regular. Hard Impact but Slow. I dont have a good tecnique.

Backhand: Excellent. Perfect 2 handed backhand. Very strong, and fast.

Serve: Bad, Soft but almost always In. Very Soft

Volley: Normal.

Smash: Pretty Good. To the center but un-retornable!

I Have tried this racquets:

Babolat Pure Drive + Is my actual racquet pretty comfortable
Prince O3 Tour My Last racquet, you need to hit the ball really hard to get a fast shot. Im makes you get tired really fast.
Head Insctint Liquidmetal Excellent. I really like it
Prince O3 White Another Safe Choice..

Im More into babolat but i hope you can help me.. Ill be ok with a dunlop, or yonex or IDK.. any that can fits to my game..

THANKS!

BTW, im going to US OPEN, and im planing to buy 3 racquets of the same there.. WHERE I CAN BUY THEM IN NY?

Re: I Need a Racquet.. Wich Racquet?

The best way to find a new racquet is to go to a local pro shop and demo some racquets. Usually it is free to demo a racquet if you end up buying it. Sometime it costs a few dollars a day to demo one. Hit with a few racquets and see if there is one you really like. The only way to find a new racquet is to have played with it.

RDS001 would be very hard to generate power with.

microgel gel extreme is similar in spec to pure drive. i think its better than the pure drive

Re: I Need a Racquet.. Wich Racquet?

don't go for the Pro. from your description of your game you would be better suited to the normal version of the extreme.

Re: I Need a Racquet.. Wich Racquet?

the pure drive is a great racket also the previous version was the best selling racket of all time
