Default What racket should I choose? Help!

Hello, I am a 19 year old male who's looking to buy a new racket. I'm 1,76m tall and 68 kg. I use a lot of spin in both my one-handed backhand and my forehand. I have a good upperbody strength, and I like to hit hard top spin winners from the baseline. I am by no means a pro, but I have had some coaching and I play once a week. Currently I'm using the Tecnifibre T-Fight 305 Vo2Max which weighs 305 grams, 95 sq in head and has an 18x19 string pattern. It's a great racket, though I would like to be able to generate some more spin and power. I've been looking at the Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph and it seems really good. In your opinion would this racket be a good fit for me or should I go for something like the Wilson Juice 100S or the Prince Tour 100 (16x18)?

You most likely be able to handle the Autograph. If you want a racket with more spin switch to a 16x19 racket. If you can find the Technifibre 315 LTD it would probably be your best option. You can the adjust it with lead tape to make it perfect for you.

If you like spin, then you should definitely try an open pattern racket, either 16x18, 19 or 20. Mine is a Prince Response 97 Classic with a 16x20 pattern.

Anyone else used the Wilson Four BLX? I just got one, 100" head, it's pretty good but I DESPISE the standard grip that came with it so I need to change it, it's like rubber/leather or something, it's sticky. The racket itself is pretty good. I'm nowhere near a tennis club that does stringing so I just persevere with the tension that it comes with.

I was using the old BLX with the square frame but only 95", and the sweet spot gave a bit more pop, but this one has a bigger sweetspot and gives me a little more spin, but obviously the strings on my old racket had loosened a fair bit.

EDIT: I love the colours It's like the racket Clijsters should have played with @ AO '03




I just wish the 'W' was blue aswell, or black
