I read every post in this thread. Great info for those of us looking for a new stick. It would really help me (others?) for everyone to list their NTRP rating, their style of play and what they like and dislike about their currect racquet.
I just started playing again after 22 years and have 3 Wilson Jack Kramer Staff St Vincent models (the predecessor of the 6.1 that Sampras used for the majority of his career) I am currently a 3.5 player but based on tournament results will be moving up to 4.0 in the spring. I am primarily a baseliner but do come in behind my first serve when I am serving particularly well.
I want to upgrade to a more current model that has similar play characteristics and am most likely going to buy an older brand new model (i.e. Wilson ncode Six-One vs the newer Kfactor or a liquidmetal radical instead of the new microgel)
Keep the postings to this thread going!

hey i love my Prince Hybrid Hornet MP i really recommend it for juniors getting serious with their game, but i resently bought a Babolat Aeropro Drive Plus which at first felt like crap in my hands but it has grown on me. just remember that if it doesnt feel good at the beginning it might feel better once your experience increases, i was also wondering if some one would recommend a summer academy in New Jersey or New York. please respond;)
