Default An advise from you guys

Hi everyone - I apologize for cutting in but for some reason I'm unable to post new threads. I'm a new user and account has been activated but yet I keep getting the "lack of administrative functions" error. Anyway, I really wanted to ask for your advice.. I'm a club player, 5.54 feet who plays double handed forehand and backhand. I play mostly doubles due to the nature of club sessions. I can generate a lot of power, I can hit great returns, deep and powerful shots as well as drive volleys. Serve is OK-ish. I do move well and run a lot

I've been playing with Wilson Blade 104 Tour, 8pt HL, 104sq, 27.5, 18x19 with Luxilon Adrenaline.

Because of the way I play, positioning, anticipation and placement are key - however I do have a tendency to spray balls long or wide, almost as it seems I lose control of the pace I can generate. I become erratic, I could do more with top spin.

Now.. I need/want change racquets (grip size of current ones is wrong and the two handed just wasted the handle..).. I wanted preferably a Yonex or Wilson just because I only played with these 2 brands for the past 20 years. I think it would be advisable to stick to extended length 27.5' or 28' for the reach part as that's quite key. However, I'm not sure if I'd benefit from a smaller or same-ish head size. From that I checked online I thought that these could be options:

- Wilson Blade SW104, perhaps the 28" would give me a greater advantage? Also, the higher SW and weight PLUS strings that favour more control would be a good option?
- Yonex EZONE DR 100+, sticking to the 27,5", reducing the head size for more stability and control ? Or even going more drastic to the Yonex EZONE DR 98+ ?
- Others? I heard good things about the Babolat Pure Drive Plus for example.

What do you guys think? Thanks so much!
