    The new Extreme 2.0 has a higher swingweight than the newest Pure Drive. That's the biggest spec difference. So you should expect the Extreme to have better stability and inherent power, but also be a little harder to swing. I hit with the new 2.0 briefly a couple months ago and thought it had better feel and comfort than any version of the Pure Drive I have hit.

    I have the Pro 2.0 and I think Head's new grommet really dampens vibration well. My racquet doesn't feel nearly as stiff as the specs indicate, and I am playing with a full bed of stiff poly ( Tour Bite). Can't comment on the Pure Drive.

    I hit with the MP last fall and was actually pretty impressed by it. Big sweet spot, lots of spin, solid feel, and very comfortable. I love my Bab APDC but it has sheared my arm these past three years. Thinking about switching.

    Ok, so I think that I'll buy a extreme mp 2.0, but what string can I put on the racquet? I'm lokking for spin. Is black code a good choice?

    I can echo those sentiments on the XPro 2.0. Does not feel that stiff to me. I'm currently playing with Sonic Pro at 60 lbs and I like it.

    I love this racquet.
