I just bought the Head YOUTEK IG Extreme Midplus, I was orignally going to buy the Prince O3 White but my coach let me try his racquet and I absolutely loved it.

Prince O3 White, imo. I didn't like it because I had to generate most my own power, but it feeds off of pace pretty well.

Wilson K-factor VS Wilson BLX.
Whats the difference between the two groups of Wilson Racquets? Which one is better overall?

The BLX is just the next generation of racquets after the K-Factor (which itself superseded the nCode line). So they're pretty similar.

Main difference is that the K-Factor racquets are a fair bit stiffer than the BLX ones. Feels a bit more old-school... sort of a throwback to the old Pro Staff in a lot of ways. Personally I really prefer it. They're a great deal at the moment because they're old stock - everyone wants the BLX because that's the one Federer uses nowadays.

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

I used a Prince O3 White for a while, then got a Prince O3 Speedport White. I stuck with the latter for ages until I recently decided for a change and got a Babolat pure drive GT. I think I prefer it to the Princes actually! I had always just decided on racquets by how they looked and whether my favourite players use/used them. I didn't really worry too much about the specs or anything. But now I'm starting to realise the differences for myself. This Babolat is so much stiffer and also doesn't have the same damp feeling as the Princes. The stiffness seems to give it more power and feel. I also find it puts more spin on the ball without as much effort. But... when I'm mishitting on a bad day, I really feel it in my arm the next day.

Has anybody ever tested Prince EXO3 Tour Team 100 (Daniela Hantuchova's)? Any thoughts?

Re: What tennis racquet do u use?

I demoed both of the racquets I had mentioned earlier last week: first I hit with the Yonex V Core 98. I felt I hit the ball really well when I was in a good position, but I played poorly when defending. I had planned to demo it the whole session but then switched to the Head Youtek Prestige MP. Surprisingly, I started to hit very good and consistent BH with good pace right away, the FH and serve took some time to adjust but I felt really good about the racquet. I will demo it again tomorrow. Unfortunately I can't try the two other models as they are not available here. I think I might have found my new racquet, espacially if I put on my usual strings.

I have been playing with Yonex for almost 10 years (part of it was 'cuz I enjoyed Maggie Maleeva, Monica Seles and Mary Pierce a lot), and I really loved the RD Ti 80. The successor (RQiS Tour 1) was okay but I think I will be switching back to Head.

Also, I finally downgraded the grip from L4 to L3 and I'm even thinking to go to L2 (with overgrip then though). I don't have big hands and I think that has not been good for my game these last 5 years or so.
