I have been using this racquet for almost a year and I still sometime have hard time to serve with especially generating power and I have the feeling that it's kinda slow during the preparation to hit the serve even tough its light weight.
Any feed back?

i had the same issue, i think it was due to the balance of the frame. I play with heavier rackets but a 5-7pts headlight. much easier to generate racket head speed

Do you think you have the same issues with tour version which is ~6 pts HL?

I actually was thinking to demo it. I tried to ad some weight on the bottom of mine but it did not help; actually coused me some wrist pain

I played with the Tour version of the original Pure Storm Tour. It is a demanding racket to serve with.

I assume you have much better results serving with PK 7g?

My arm does not wear out during a match with the 7G. Even though the specs look almost identical on paper with the PST, the PK 7G seems much easier to serve with. The head just seems lighter.

Hey, what kind of racquet is the PK 7g? I may be looking for an alternative to replace the Pure storm gt.

Pro Kennex 7G. Very arm friendly.

What's the best alternative maybe a bit heavier racquet to replace the Pure strom GT?

Thanks

I found the pure storm tour gt a good serving racket actually. have u considered the prince Exo 3 tour. good pop and spin with a low weight

I actually found demanding serving with the non tour gt version. I have never tried the gt tour but I think I will demo it very soon hoping it's a better all around racquet.
I need something a bit easier on serve and with that could give me some extra weight on groundies..
