Hello,


I am a claycourt player from Germany and I am playing the POG Mid at the moment. This is a nice stick and i really love the feel, control and spin. I play all the time on clay and i think (am i right?) that the headsize is not perfekt. I hit with huge spin and i am a hardhitter with the forehand. Backhand is one handed and when ever it is possible i play forehand. Gamestyle is like the claycourtplayer from spain ;) or like Gonzo. I dont play like them, but so you know my art of game. :)

What do you think about the headsize problem?

Second:
I have the Babolat Aero Pure Storm fpr demo and the first training yesterday was really amazing. Is it a good idea to thi nk about a change to this frame? The headsize and sweetspot are def. bigger and better (?).

Aero Storm is not that great. Try the Pure Storm Tour instead for a little more un-muted feel. Headsize is fine as already Babolat racquets have a big sweetspot with the Woofer Technology.

Now you are talking about another similar sized stick...I'd stick with the POG and refine your strokes and game. The POG is a great stick!

I don't think a midsize racquets is to small. The New Head MG Prestige Pro is a very nice racquet. I think You should give the MG Prestige Pro a demo. The MG Prestige racquets are the nicest Head racquets in years.

i also play on clay but i am not a fan of the Aero Storm. give the POG OS a try... thats perfect for baseline play.

I am going to demo the APDC. Is there enough mass to go through the ball?

I'd suggest giving the Speedport Tour a spin. Try it with both inserts, but I think you'll find yourself a nice racket there. Tons of spin with a solid and stable feeling. The 16x18 pattern really hits a heavy ball. This was one of the few rackets that reminded me of that "old school" feeling.

If you hit well with the Aero Storm then stick with that despite what others opinions may be on it. I have one in my bag which I pretty much take out only when I play on clay. I seem to play better with it than anything else including my regular RQiS 1 on clay, not the case on quicker surfaces though.

I would think that because clay is slower it gives you more time to set up and hit with the heavier Aerostorm. On a faster surface you don't get that same luxury of reaction time and the lighter, lower SW RQiS Tour 1 makes up for that loss of reaction time.

Just a guess though.

Yes that's my opinion although the weight (around 340 grams measured on on my postal scale) and sw (around 325) is pretty much the same for both. I believe the more headlight balance and more polarised nature of the RQiS 1 is what helps on quicker surfaces.

So, i really like the Aeropro Drive Cortex! I think it could be my next stick. Should i demo the plus version or is this because of the one-handed stupid?
