Default Wanting a new racquet

I haven't played consistently for about the past 10 years. Mostly sporadic playing with people below my level. I used to play competitively in tennis camps and for high school, etc. I am, if I had to guess right now, about a 4.0 player and am going to be starting in a league very soon and hopefully will be playing more routinely.

I have 3 Wilson ProStaff 4.2 Classics (95sq) that I have been using since I used to play in high school. Never got around to upgrading since my playing habits decreased over the years. What would be a good racquet to consider? Perhaps something about an ounce lighter but still headlight and the same headsize? Or if I kept those what string type/tension does anyone remember working well with that frame? Thanks for any and all information.

you should check out the kpro tour. the headsize is 96 square inches and the weight 314g, so its a lighter, more manouevrable and powerful pro staff.

if you want to keep the same frames, a string some for a friend of mine who has them at 58lbs with a soft synthetic string. seeing as you havent played that much, i would go lower, around 52, to help open up the stringbed a little
