Hi,
I am using the Babolat Pure Storm Tour GT
I am really liking the Wilson BLX Pro Staff 100,
because the 100sq head offers nice feel with the sweetspot, but still has a thin beam unlike say a Babolat Pure Drive.

The only problem is that it is too light.
I want to customize the 100 to make it more of a "players racquet"
and play more like my babolat.

Any help is appreciated

im not really sure about the specs of the ps100, but you can add lead to the head. and counter balance that by adding lead to the handle, or throat. i personally like to add lead above the grip on the handle because im too lazy to remove the grip. now how much lead to add is up to you. i would add 5 grams at the 12 and counter balance to my liking.

Got it-

To match it to the specs of your pure storm tour GT:

8 grams at 12
24 grams wrapped under the grip at 7"
8 grams in the butt cap

Use 1" lead tape from *bay to wrap under the grip at 7" so you only have to wrap 24" inches.

it will be 343g, 32.3cm balance, 333 SW - same as the PST GT

Wow thanks a lot
theres one thing I'm worried about..
the power level on tennis warehouse for the blx
pro staff 100 is "medium"
my babolat pure storm tour is "low" power level
will i not be able to control the wilson racquet?
i have tried using a pure drive a couple of times and i couldn't keep any control, so would it be like that?

Use the John Cauthen method.
Take the grip off and add lead tape to the handle
up to the point where your forefinger is.
That is not past your hand.

This will give the frame heft/weight but also make it
feel more headlight and thus lighter and more maneuverable.
You can add as much as 3oz [ Yes, I said 3 oz ]
Start with 1 oz and go from there.
