Default What racquet after a long lay off?

Hi Guys - Advice Please.
Used to play to a fairly good club standard but have not picked up a racquet for nearly 2 years now! Looking to get back into the game with a view to playing at least a couple of times a week. I play an all-court game and a one handed backhand, with both topspin and backspin - i have a fairly long and medium powerful swing. The main issue with me is weight - i have always liked a fairly light racquet with a medium head size, primarily for manouverabilty. I am looking for a blend of control and power, with good spin. At present, i am looking at Babolat Pure Drive GT Lite, Dunlop 4D 500 and Head Youtek Extreme Elite - would this be a good shortlist - any others i should be looking at? Thanks in advance.

the rackets you have mentioned are all good frames. you may want to look at a few that are a little heavier as well, like the head speed elite, wilson kblade team, prince exo3 black team. the three i have mentioned are only 5/10 grams heavier, but other than that they are very similar.

Thanks Jazar - you're a star. Can i put you on the spot!!!. Given what i have told you about my game, which of those 3 on my shortlist would you say was probably best suited - and which one from your own shortlist, in your opinion, would be the best fit. I will of course be trying before buying!!!
