A few months ago I played the K-Blade 98. Because it was too stiff, and when I was in defense I couldn´t get a ball over the net and I didn´t liked the 18x20 pattern I sold them. Because I haven´t got a racket, my coach has given me a POG LB. First I loved this racket, and I even wanted to by it, but I only could get this racket from TW (too high additional charges). Before this racket I tried the Pure Storm Tour + with Alu Power and then my arm was hurting. After this I tried the Oehms Black Pearl 1,23 (Discho Black Mamba 1,23) on it, and I haven´t found the groove. In addition the grip wasn´t solid (common Babolat problem); so it was a bit loose and squeaking. A few days ago I was hitting again with this racket for only 3 minutes (problem with grip was fixed) with the Big Banger Original. It was strung very hard, but I liked the feel, the control and the pace of this stick. Now I´m not sure if I should try the Pure Storm Tour + again or maybe the normal version or the GT. With the PST I haven´t got my serves hard, so when the GT allows harder serves than the older one, then I would try this stick. I don´t have a problem with overlength-sticks, but maybe then I will find a lack in maneuverability, because this stick is also heavier then the rackets I played before. Thank you and sorry for my grammar again.
