Demoed the 2012 and wow its my favorite stick of all time.
A ton of spin,power,stability,and feel. Liked it more than my pure storm tour gt.
But one issue that its stiff as a mofo. Is the older one less stiff or the same

What is the difference between the old version and the new??...besides the price :)

Heyy. How does it compare to your PSTGT? I actually use both the PSTGT and the old Pure Drive, in both the blue and FO cosmetic.. Could you write some on how different it is?

I was really looking to buy the PDR 2012, but I'm not sure if it's worth the money, since I already have the old Pure Drive and PSTGT.. I'm looking at the PDR 2012, because I'm looking for a bit heavier than the PD, and I think the PSTGT(my main racket) is just slightly on the heavy side.. So, I thought the PDR 2012 would be the answer. Plus I heard it's a lot softer than the old Pure Drive..

.Theres a big difference to be honest
- awesome feel. I can hit hard shots without going out and really forgiving . Serving ... Lacked in power but has good placement. Volleys are a joy with it nice solid flex feel. And it flexes a lot so its really forgiving .

PDRGT 2012 (leaded long strip on the 12 near even balance )-
One word wow. Flat shot or spin ... Tons of power.I hit heavy curvy topsin(hit with a straight forhand stroke like rafa but not hard hitting like him obvi) the racket.produces a heavy ball and has such a awesome feel to it. It's not pingy. Serves were big and kickserves are a breeze.
Voleys are so easy since you have a lot of room but I still hit in the center.
Drop shots have ton of spin..... idk I just love it but its stiff but in a good way.

Anybody know if the pure drive roddick gt 2010 is softer and flexible compare to the 2012 ????? Thanx appreciate it

Yea the black is nice but doesn't it feel stiffer tho ?? I play super good with it .... Damn good but if the previous model is a bit softer Amd flexes a little more than I would but I haven't tried out the previous model and i dont want to waste money on demos

Old one feels much stiffer with a bit more power
New one feels better overall and swings faster
