Help! What Racket should I get?

Im gonna start playing!! Finally! And I dont have any idea what racket should i buy, i know this kind of threads have been here always, lol, but i really need some advice. My kinda of play its with power and control, I like to run a lot and chase for everyball and put balls on the line, crosscourts and change directions, all of those with power lol. Im not looking for something heavy (since i dont like them) and something really huge either ( My hands dont fit to those kinda of stuff). Im really looking for a Wilson NCODE , thats my dream , i know its really $$$$$ but i dont care, i just want to enter to court at this moment . I know that i have to try it when buying it, but I dont think i will be able to do so, u guys must have some experience, what do u think?

Wait - how do you know what your game is if this is your first time playing?

N3 is a good racket for a beginner, I guess. It has a big frame and lots of power.

Let them eat cake.

I have played before, and i know what kinda of game its the one i want to develop, i have a two hand forehand but i can change it to the normal drive, so i have both, two handed backhand.

lol i just began to play in october and i wanted a Ncode too. (Venus vibe).
i bought one on ebay but i should have been more observant at the seller. he got me.

then i saw the n6, not the oversized, it's powerful, so you have not to be actin Hulk playin tennis cause the ball will be out. but i begin to fix it, and the control is pretty decent. i'm able to make those down the line powerful shot.

to new beginnings.

I think you are better getting the racket serena uses. Big head, believe me it will help! Good power and control. I think you would like it.

U know what my kind of game its like this dude Nieminem I think it is, on the atp, the exact way, he reached the quaters at the us open. I use the invert drive more than the backhand ...

I like head racquets best. They feel like the weight is evenly distributed throughout the racquet. The one I use is Head Liquidmetal Radical, and I like it a lot!

Hi 40-0:
