    Has anyone compared these two racquets?

    I assume the PD is more powerful than the Storm?

    The storm has a better edge in control over the PD.

    How do they compare with plowthrough?

    Spin generation?

    Volleying?

    Which has a more solid feel?

    Thanks in advance.

    PD has tons more power, very stiff. They are both good rackets, but the Storm is for the more advanced player looking for control.

    I have played with both GT versions. I liked the Pure Storm GT better overall. I'm primarily a baseliner with spin but if I play regularly, I will take the ball out of the air more often and the Pure Storm GT is much better for that in my opinion. My friend, on the other hand, likes the Pure Drive and she is a much better player than me (she is a 5.5) and plays a lot more touch and all rounder game than I do. Try them both is my opinion.
