Looking for a racquet! Help me out!

Hey guys, Im a pretty experienced tennis player. I am now looking for a racquet that will help me play at a whole new level. I have been practicing a lot and I feel I am ready to step up my tennis game play, and I need a racquet that will aid me throught this journey of improvement. I would like a racquet that is under 150$ and that has nice power but also a decent amount of control. I've had my eyes on the Wilson [K]Zero and the Babolat Pure Drive. Would these raquets be good? I am also open to any other suggestions!

the put it bluntly, the kzero is for someone who isnt very good; its very light with a large headsize, making it very easy to use. its all power and no control. the pure drive is a racket more for intermediate to advanced players; its specs of 300g weight and 100 sq inch head size and the norm these days and its a racket you cant go far wrong with. its a frame that gives more of a balance between power and control. other similar frames are the head extreme and instinct, wilson pro open, dunlop 500 tour and prince speedport black

if your going to get a wilson. I recommend the pro tour or the open. With the open you will have to generate your own power more often than with the tour. Have you hit with Nadals new frame yet, that quite good
