Wanting a new racquet

I haven't played consistently for about the past 10 years. Mostly sporadic playing with people below my level. I used to play competitively in tennis camps and for high school, etc. I am, if I had to guess right now, about a 4.0 player and am going to be starting in a league very soon and hopefully will be playing more routinely.

I have 3 Wilson ProStaff 4.2 Classics (95sq) that I have been using since I used to play in high school. Never got around to upgrading since my playing habits decreased over the years. What would be a good racquet to consider? Perhaps something about an ounce lighter but still headlight and the same headsize? Or if I kept those what string type/tension does anyone remember working well with that frame? Thanks for any and all information.

Re: Wanting a new racquet

you should check out the kpro tour. the headsize is 96 square inches and the weight 314g, so its a lighter, more manouevrable and powerful pro staff.

if you want to keep the same frames, a string some for a friend of mine who has them at 58lbs with a soft synthetic string. seeing as you havent played that much, i would go lower, around 52, to help open up the stringbed a little
