Replacing Thunderbolt suggestions

My last thunderbolt has finally bit the dust and it is probably too much hassle to replace. I'm thinking I could at least move into the last decade's technology. I had the 110 sq inch and the 28.5 frame so I know I probably can't get that long a frame again. I am an intermediate player with a moderate to full swing. The only two racquets I am thinking of demoing at the moment are the prince 03 red and the 03 hydrid. Thoughts on those and anything else that might fit the bill would be appreciated.

Demoed a Prince Ex03 Red 95, 03 Hybrid OS, and a Yonex RdiS 300. I was surprised at how much I liked the Yonex part was due to the odd stringing on the Princes. The Yonex felt solid and allowed for a good feel/control on groundstrokes, slice, and volleying. I am going to play some more with the Yonex but wondered what else might be similar to the RDiS 300.

Re: Replacing Thunderbolt suggestions

most brands will make something similar to the rdis 300. wilson have the kobra team fx, dunlop have the aerogel 500, babolat have the aero pro drive, and head have the extreme. all those rackets are the same head sze as the yonex and within 5g of its weight
