recommendation for intermediate player with old racquet?


I am an intermediate player who has been getting back into the game after some time off. I'm pretty comfortable with my racquet but it's seen some life and I'd like a new one. My current racket is a Wilson Pro Staff 5.5si 110 (yes, I said old) and I'm looking for something that:
1. Is a little lighter
2. Has a not-so-oversized head
3. Costs not too much more than $100.

I'd like to stay with Wilson because I'm familiar. Any recommendations? I also don't NEED to have the latest line, i.e. n is fine if k is too expensive.

Re: recommendation for intermediate player with old racquet?

its a good job you're looking for something a little different cos they dont make rackets like yours anymore. you'd probably like something like the wilson kzen, it should have a relatively familiar feel. you could also check out the wilson npro open. if you were going to venture into other brands then it might be worth checking out the babolat pure drive
