If you can find it, the Yonex MP-3i is the most arm friendly racquet that is a good stick w/ lead. Look into the Pro Kennex line also. I'd also say look into a nat gut or nat gut hybrid.

I think pro kennex ki (all versions) are very armfriendly. After depend from your kind of play and from your arm power.
Q tour is an heavy and tecnical racket for advanced player. I think the best choice for normal player are ki5 295 or ki15 300. The first one is a racket not so much power but with very good control...the second one is exactly reverse, power and not great control.
If you want buy one pro kennex I can sell to you (new racket) with very good price.

Prince is comfortable but it basically sucks.

I would suggest: Yonex RDiS 200 and Yonex URD Ti 80, both extremely comfortable, excellent racquets overall with comfort.

If you want lighter, both have theirs lighter versions, for sure in different level from Prince guaranteed.

I tried both. Both are extremely arm friendly; however, the Prince was very underpowered, have absolutely no complaints about the Q Tour in fact it is my current racquet.

Either Pro Kennex or Donnay. Heavier racquets and make sure they are head light.

That statement makes no sense, Volkl and Yonex have always made comfortable sticks, with better playability overall. Donnay is not even on the same planet compared to Volkl/Yonex and Pro Kennex.

I said before, Yonex RDiS 200/URD ti 80 and the new VCore Tours are the way to go, or Volkl C10 and Power Bridge mid.

I have been playing with a Q-Tour for a month. Mine is strung with Klip Legend Pro gut 17 gauge and it has a Wilson K grip. The weight is 12.3 oz. and the balance is 7 pts head light. This racquet has the softest hit I have ever experienced. As for playability, it suits my classical style very well. I haven't had a new racquet I liked so much in many years.

Boris Becker racquets made in China?? No thanks!!

Of course I'd take Yonex racquets over any other racquet, they have the best feel and better quality and play very unique, but you are different from me, maybe feel is not one of your priorities or you can't tell the difference. Maybe quality is not one of your priorities.
