    Anyone know how to differentiate betwen Pure drive Roddick and Pure Drive Roddick Plus? I know that the Plus is longer in length but what about the appearance and the color? I'm afraid that I will purchase the wrong racket because both of them look similar. Do they have the name Pure Drive Plus on the frame?

    Thanks.

    weight is also a difference...the Roddick is a heavier stick

    Roddick + = 332 grams/11.7 oz
    non-Roddick + = 318 grams/11.2 oz

    I would say the Roddick is more inline with traditional racquet weights...I have mine customized up to 333 grams (11.75oz) and still might add a little more....

    OK thanks. I need to know the difference in the color because if the tennis shop only sell one of them, then I would not be able to see which one is the PDR+

    Oh wait, I see the difference, the PDR doesn't have the + at the word ' Drive ' and the PDR+ have it.

    Can anyone who have one of these racquets confirm?

    Thanks.
