    I have been using a Pure Drive for several months and really like it except that it just feels a little too light. I have always used heavier rackets and now find that I have a problem feeling where the head on the PD is when I am rushed on a shot.

    Does anyone have suggestions on adding weight to the PD without changing the balance too much.

    Thanks

    just put about 5 inches of lead tapes on all 4 sides of 3 and 9, maybe too heavy for you but thats how i like it

    i suggest adding a significant amount of weight to it.....go git yirself a big ole cinder block and tie it to the pure drive......some sort of poly works best for this ;O, and then just throw the whole thing into the nearest body of water ;)
    the standard way to do this is to add lead at 3 and 9 and a comparable amount in the handle area

    I'm pretty much having the same problem... I put lead at 3 and 9 but I don't like the balance too much...
    Is it good to put some lead in the throat???
