The pure storm is known for having a squeaky sound in the cap, it's normal for that racquet. I wouldn't worry about it, it doesn't really affect the racquet.

It squeeks because the staple that holds the butt cap to the frame is too thin and too short to do the job. I didn't bother to fiix it, but a slightly larger staple should do the job as long as it doesn't break the butt cap.

It annoys the crap out of me.
Get your staple gun out of the garage. Take off the grip and staple the slanted part of the butt cap to the handle. Dont forger to push hard.

You can use hot glue and a longer staple. If you don't fix it, it continues to rub against the bare handle and wears it away so it won't fit snug and become quite loose. We've seen quite a few of them around here. I had the same problem and did the fix I listed above. It mainly seems to come from juniors who really hang onto the end of the stick. I do the same-I wrap the overgrip 4 times around the end so I can really whip. The fix seems to work. I've done it to 3 of them and the problem went away.
