    I want to get that racquet but it's not avilable anymore so is there anything like that besides the 2009 version?

    you could try looking on the forums. i'm sure someone has one they don't need. I also heard it was similar to the Pure Drive series.

    try the k pro open or pure drive. the extreme is head's version of the pure drive and the k pro open is wilson's version of it.

    Is the 09 version the same thing or it's a little bit different?

    ^^^it is less different then anything else that has been suggested. The big difference is the Teflon gromments, which to me are an improvement over the last version.

    Why not just get the 2009 version, and then buy some grommets for the 2008 version? Since they're more or less the same frame, it won't make a massive difference. The only real difference between the frames is the Teflon grommets.

    the extreme is closer to the pure drive. the extreme pro is closer to the pdr.

    the spacing of the strings on the 09 version is different than that of the 08 so the grommets aren't interchangeable.
