I have two versions of the Pure Control Std. Not sure what came before or after these racquets but I can give some impressions based on what I know...

Version 1:
Bought in 2002 I think. Feels solid and punchy, but softer than later version.
Weight 330g
No size indicator, but looks exactly the same as later version when placed on top of each other. My guess is 97"
Flex 66
Balance 310
Dynamic intertia (same as swing weight?) 300kg/cm^2
Rec string tension 48-55
string pattern 16x20
Graphics show "Pure Control Series"

Version 2:
Came around in 2003. Subtlely stiffer and lighter than 2001 PC. Also a little more maneuverable.
Headsize 97sq"
Weight 320
Flex - not indicated
Balance 310
Rec string tension 50-55
string pattern 16x20
Graphics show "Pure Control Team"

Any different versions out there?
