My main stick is Prince Graphite Tour (POG) OS 107. It's one of the few head light oversize rackets on market. It's solid overall, but just a little bit too heavy.

i have 15 of the POG oversize sticks . if you grip the racket too tight and hit the ball like you are rafa. of course it will be too heavy. the racket was designed to do most of the work for the player. not the other way around. the best models were the grommetless version and the first generation of the four stripe version. the rest were ok. perhaps you should try the HEAD radical OS. (bumblebee version) first gen. identical to the POG or the donnay pro 1 OS.

15 POGs... that's a lot! I have 3 and thought they were already gonna last forever...

The Graphite Tour (TW version) might be more head heavy than the older generations. My racket is 12.8 oz and 6 pt HL with one overgrip. I use eastern grip but still feel tired in the 2nd set. I just wished it could be lighter or more head light.

if you want a lighter racket then try the EXO graphite 100. the stick is a full ounce lighter. there are plenty of these floating around even though they have been discontinued. i'm not a big fan of the POG tour version. most of the POG's i have are either the grommetless version ( which is very hard to find) and the four stripe version. i got rid of the original leather grips on all the rackets and replaced them with the prince resi pro grip. gives the old faithfuls are new look. and of course, hybrid strings. 17G multi filaments on the cross and poly on the mains. the rackets power is toned town but still has the punch when needed.
i was however disappointed with the 2012 lineup. no graphite of any kind. the POG is a racket that should stay in the prince lineup. just like the ford mustang.
perhaps some strength training should be added to your regimen if you plan on staying with your POG. just a thought.
