    I see massu is using a pure storm, but it looks like an extended length. Is there a pure storm plus that will come out in the US? Does anyone know the specifications and customization of Massu's racquet?

    actually it's a paintjob, he uses the original pro team control 2001 but in the extended version, but it's not a real storm.

    Not sure what Massu is using these days, but in Miami I customized several PC's for him. Unfortunately I don't know the specs off hand......but I can tell you his racquets are pretty much standard PCs, with about 15-20g of weight added (if I remember correctly).

    Hewitt, each racquet came to me (stock) with different specs, and thus required different ammounts of weight to be added in different locations. Some may have needed a few grams under the bumper, others may not have........one may need weight added at the top of the handle, another may need it at the bottom of the handle.

    Hey Micheal, Whats your recommandation of putting lead on ( Location and the amount) regular stock babolat Pure drive standard, Babolat Pure Drive Plus and babolat Pure control plus? And whats the advantages and disadvantages of having the weight on the handle?

    I'm pretty sure Babolat doesn't do paintjobs.
