    What makes some players like the Pure Storm better than the Pure Drive? Is it the thinner beam? The more flexible frame (64 SI for Pure Storm compared to 69 SI for Pure Drive? Is it the slightly extra swing weight? What is it?

    Is the Pure Storm as Powerful as the PD? Is it more playable? Better control? Thanks.

    It's a very different feeling racket. More spin and power with the PD but more comfort and control with the Storm. If the Storm were a little heavier and more headlight...that would be a racket.

    The three points headlight is what bother me about the storm. Not head light enough. Can't hit the big, dipping topsin as well. What do you think is the best playable (while still being maneuverable) Babolat racket?

    Not necessarily better. Just different. Completely different.
