PRINCE GRAPHITE VS. PRINCE GRAPHITE II MIDSIZE PLUS

PRINCE GRAPHITE VS. PRINCE GRAPHITE II MIDSIZE PLUS

Soory that i didn't make it clear in the title of this post, but i would like
some opinions on these two rackets

a little background on the two rackets...
Prince stopped making the graphite a little while back.  In their new
classic series, Prince offers the graphite midsize plus.  Both rackets are 95's
and offer a more traditional feel.

i used to play with the prince graphite...now i've shattered them all  :(
i've always been the traditional all-aroudn type of player and have always
prefered rackets like the prince graphite, the head pro-staff, the kennex
black ace, etc.  I recently demo'ed the prince graphite II midsize plus
and i don't know what to think...the first racket was strung way too tight
for my tastes and the second was strund so loose it felt like a ***oline.

Prince is going to discontinue the midsize plus and bring back the original
graphite...i have heard rumors about players complaining about EITHER lack
of control and too much power with the new midsize plus or the exact
opposite.

retailers are offering cut rate deals on the midsize plus right now so i am
debating with myself...

opnions on the two rackets anyone?

differences in play characteristics would be appreciated...

also stats on the original racket would be nice too  (weight, etc)
perhaps and old "tennis" magazine would have a review on the oreginal graphite?

many thanks

and sorry for the long post
