can anyone here describe the power level of the babolat pure control std (27", 98 sq in)? high for a player's racquet? low? relative to other players' racquets?

I would say it's high for a player's racquet, solid, decent feel and good maneuverability. Power level, though, is a little on the high side. I would imagine this is due to the woofer tech, but i don't really think the woofer does much except lessen the angle the string bends around the grommet... i GUESS this could lead to more string "movement," but i doubt this is the entire reason this racquet plays the way it does...

How is it compared to a wilson racquet?

Well due to my high dislike of wilsons, id have to say boo wilson, but ive heard babs racquets have a super high stiffness, and if your gonna add a higher tension string, might wanna take care of your elbow

it's also a little clumsy at net, not too manueverable.
