    Hi Guys,

    At the moment I have a head Microgel Monster strung with RPM Blast and was thinking of changing to the Babolat Pure Drive GT 135th Anniversary racket.

    What would be the major differences in play with these two rackets?

    Also on the TW website it says (I'm from Australia):"A great choice for the 4.0 + player. "

    What exactly does this mean? Is a 4.0 player of a good standard?

    It would be greatly appreciated if someone would also like to explain the American system to me aswell? e.g When people talk about someone being a 3.5 player or a 4.0 player etc

    Thanks :)

    4.0 is a strong intermediate player, so if you can hit with a technically consistent topspin stroke then you can play with the PD.

    It's the USTA's rating system. It goes like this:
    Isn't the 135th anniversary frame a Pure Drive GT with red paint? Assuming it is, it shouldn't be too much hassle to grab one and demo.
