Need Help on choosing a new tennis racket

Hi i have been using a Head Flexpoint Instinct for the last 2 years and have decided i need a change. I am 15 and i have a rating of 9.1. I have a medium power forehand a backhand and hit lots of spin but my serve is not the best.

I have a few rackets in mind...
[*]Wilson Nblade Mp
[*]Technifbre T fight 295
[*]Head Microgel Radical Mp
[*]Head Microgel Extreme
[*]Babolat Pure Storm
[/LIST]
I am mainly thinking about the Tecnifibre 295, atm there is a good deal on tennis nuts http://www.tennisnuts.com/ishop/677/shopscr5017.html
Sorry there is alot, hope you can help, i am open to suggestions !
Thanks in advance

Sorry if the post has gone wrong this is my 1st post.

Just to add another racket into the equation ... Yonex RDS 001

Re: Need Help on choosing a new tennis racket

if you are going to change, you should change to something more advanced. i would instantly rule out the microgel extreme as it is too similar to what you are already using.

the tfight, radical and storm are all 98sq inch head and 295g, the blade is a bit heavier so might be a better option.

the 001 is a fair bit heavier and i would say you should stick to the slightly lighter frames which you will find a bit more helpful with power

Re: Need Help on choosing a new tennis racket

i think the prestige would be a bit beyond you.

the dunlop aerogel 500 tour is quite a good racket in my opinion, but i still dont think you should consider it as it is too similar to what you are currently using

Re: Need Help on choosing a new tennis racket

What do you think off the Wilson Npro Staff, Wilson N six one team or Yonex RDX 500. I have decided i need a lot stiffer racket than my flexpoint as i just cant seem to get the power i need with my flexpoint even though im hitting the ball pretty hard ! Help !
