Need help for buying a racket

Hi!
I am 15 years old and I'm looking for a new tennis racket. I'd say I'm about player level 3.5-4.0.
I would like to buy a racket that can give me control with a tad more power. I would like something that costs less than 150$.
I was looking at the Dunlop Aerogel 800 but not sure if it would be fine.
There was also the Dunlop Aerogel Smoke, the Babolat XS 102, or perhaps the Wilson K Tour FX 102.
Any more suggestions and are any of those i mentioned good choices?
Thank you.

Re: Need help for buying a racket

Dunlop's are not extreemly powerful frames, however the 300 has a nice blend of power and control, the 500 tour will give you more power and is most like the babolats. I believe that the 800 would be waaaaaay too powerful for you considering your body will continue to develop your muscle for a few more years. I do not know very much about frames outside of dunlop&technifibre, so i cannot help you on the others. The smoke should do a fine job filling the bill for what you have described. Can you tell me more about your game, backhand serve etc.?

I am looking for a new racket, too, because I bought the Wilson K Tour FX 102, but it was not very good.
