    Which racquet for intermediate baseliner? Dunlop, Head, Yonex

    I'm an intermediate player and after a few years of not playing tennis(6 yrs), would like to play regularly again. My current racquet is a prince equipe oversize longbody (around 900-1000 power level according to Prince power scheme) and I use 2 handed backhand and eastern grip on my forehand. I see myself more of a baseliner since I only go up to the net occasionally and like to hit winner/force error from the baseline. My groundstrokes are more on the flat side with moderate spin. I have a moderate-long swing. These days I feel this racquet is too heavy for me (hence the even flatter shot, as I can't get enough spin on the ball and a lot of balls tend to sail long)

    I'm searching for a new racquet that is a bit more forgiving and lighter so I can setup faster and hence get better swing control. I also think that I should get the heaviest racquest I can handle comfortably; since the equipe is around 12.1 oz, I'm thinking 11 oz - does a 1oz weight difference make enough impact on the swing?) After doing my research, here's my top choices (in alphabetical order):

    dunlop aerogel 4D 300 or dunlop aerogel 4D 500 Tour
    head youtek speed elite or head microgel radical oversize
    yonex rqis 2 tour or yonex rds 003 or rds 002

    Any advice is appreciated

    yes, actually as of today, I'm leaning more towards the AG 4D 500Tour. the head mg radical os is a close second. Any input regarding these 2 racquets? =) Which racquet is more forgiving?

    I'm currently living in Indonesia.

    I've narrowed down my choices into these two : (in the order of preferences)
    1. Dunlop Aerogel 4D 500 Tour
    2. Head Microgel Radical Oversize

    any comments?
