Would like to hear some opinions about these rackets?

I've never played with the kpro open. I just recently demoed the Pure Storm Team and the 003 and I found them to be totally different racquets (I would say the Pure Storm is similair to the 002 non tour). The 003 is stiffer and a 1/4" longer and has more power than the Pure Storm. The Pure Storm has more flex and is a little more control oriented. I went with the 003 because I enjoyed the extra pop it offered.

i don't know about the others but i have been using the RDS003 for 8 months now and is the best racket i ever used in 12 years playing tennis.

I've narrowed my choices now between the rds003 and the kpro open. I will test them this week and then make a decision.

No headaches!!! It was an easy choice. rds003 is a very solid stick and my serve was a lot harder with more weight then the kpro open. Powerlevel was ideal and i didn't notice the extra length. I can't say anything bad about this racket.

Another advantage is that i don't need to experiment with leadtape. This one is great in stock form.

Can you make a comparison between these racquets and others that you have tried?

It falls somewhere between the pure storm and apdc in terms of power but is quite maneuverable and has a very solid crisp response which i like very much.

Pure Storm (2008) plays very well. Easy on the arm, and has a nice blend of control and power.
