I was wondering which racquet would be better for a 3.0-3.5 player who is playing 2-3 times per week. I am over 30 and a runner. I have a decent forehand with topspin, and a fair 1 handed backhand. (working on it).

I have a decent amount of power, but I am wondering if the pure drive might be better because it is lighter and eaiser to move into position (according to what I have read).

These are very different rackets to me. I demoed both recently and I did not like the Pure Drive. It was too light and it was not friendly to my arm/shoulder. Judging from the courts where I have played recently, I am in the minority - I see lots of Pure Drives.

The nSix-One 95 felt very nice - I liked the weight (12+oz, but 9 points headlight). It is a powerful racket and I liked the stability it offered.

I also demoed the Pure Control and liked it. Like most people you may here from on this forum, I'd suggest you demo both. I never would have guessed that the nSix-one 95 would suit me until I tried it.
