Default Will test Head raquets - suggestions appreciated

Hi all! I found this forum some days ago - looks like a nice one =)

I need some advice on choosing a raquet. I'm currently using a Prince Shark Midplus raquet and I'm not sure if I'll buy a new one, but the case is that I know a guy who can get Head raquets so I can playtest some of them - which sounds fun, and if I find a raquet I really like, then money won't be a problem...

I've been playing tennis for about 12 years and consider myself a decent player. I'm a typically baseliner, and I got a pretty good serve. I'm not too comfortable at the net (though I'm working on it =P). I want to test some raquets that can help give my groundstrokes some decent power and help me be more offensive/aggressive and it must be good to serve with. I watched at the swing style bar over at the Head website and I got a swing style somewhere between long and moderate.

So if you think you know which Head raquets I should try (it doesn't hurt if you recommend some other brands too ) then shoot! I'm happy with my current raquet, but it'll be fun to test something new =)

Thanks in advance,
Řyvind

you could try something like the microgel extreme, which is similar but a bit stiffer and in theory more powerful. or you could try the microgel radical mp, which would give you a little more control

I like the flexpoint radical. I would skip the Microgel radical team. And of course try the Dunlop Aerogel 200, 300, or 500 Tour. The 500 Tour is like the shark midplus (100 sqin. 11.1 oz) but I would try the 300 (10.9 oz 16x19 pattern 98sq in). But my all time favorite racket is the Prince Diablo Mid (12.2 oz 93 sq in)
