    Daniel was speaking of Baylor University in Waco, TX. Becker now lives and trains in Florida.

    The link to the picture did not work. But yes, unless he has switched, he uses a bab PC

    He plays with the Pure Control Tour.

    The players who preferred the Pure Storm are using the Pure Strike CTRL.

    I believe you mentioned in another thread that Pure Strike CTRL will be released at some point in the future. Can you, please, give us more details?

    Will the strike ctrl be more similar to the pure storms, or just the same as the controls in strike pj? I just love that pj and I really love the controls more as I feel they're softer and also have a little more controls gan the storms. Thanks in advance.

    Too early to know or provide more info (as I don't have any), we're still experimenting with the consumer weight and balance. It won't be a huge departure from the Storm/Control specs.
