    While watching Stosur play - I looked at the 'what pros use' and see that Stosur and Fernando Gonzalez use the PSGT. Do any pros use the PSLGT?

    Gonzo and Stosur are using the swirly version of the Pure Control (in Gonzo's case, it's the + version), with Pure Storm GT paintjobs.

    Gonzo's racquet was reported to have the flex at 60 or so, so it can't be any Pure Control of any kind.

    Not true. Babolats vary in flex quite a bit from frame to frame, and people also fail to take into account that RA numbers change a lot depending on whether you're measuring strung frames or unstrung. I have several Pure Controls (both Team and swirly) that measure in the 60 RA range.

    Harrison definitely does not use the GT, I saw some old footage of him and of course he had the PSL orig. Pros and Juniors dont change their sticks when a new model comes out.

    I learned that in TT elementary school, but I did have to get beat up a few times b4 it sunk in.:twisted:

    Isnt the pistol using the PSLGT now? I think it's safe to consider him a pro right? Might be the PSTGT though not exactly sure.

    sorry it was called the control but now it is called the tour that is my bad. The psl gt is awesome i had six of them with my bab sponsorship but i have to say i loved the yellow one more the generation before that. I loved the stiffness
