Default Looking for a step up - Help pls

Hi all,

I don't know much about racquets and what specs to look for (stringing). I'm currently playing with a cheapo Head Titanium 3000, pre-strung.

I would like to upgrade b/c this racquet is not too great, very low power, low spin, etc...its a beginners racquet and im looking to step up on my game.

What type of information would I look for to determine the right racquet for me? How does the stringing work? I would like an all around good racquet which has good ratings for all types of game play.

Here are the current stats of my racquet:

Beam: 22 mm
Head size: 645 cm²
Weight: 275 g - 9.7 Ounce
Balance: 325 mm
Length: Standard, 685 mm
Gripsize: 1-5
String Pattern: 16/19
Swingstyle: None
Tension: 24-28KP / 52-62LBS


I want something similar in weight..would I suffer in the performance category for something of similar weight? I've never tried other racquets and I can't demo.

I was thinking about the Dunlop Aerogel 300.

I haven't looked up these but I may be able to get good deals from a store on the below:

Wilson K Tour
Wilson K Blade 98
Wilson K Six One Lite
Wilson K Sting 105
Head Microgel Radical OS
Head Metallix 2

Thanks
