    I heard from TW that new Babolat Pure drive limited edition is coming out next week. How is this racket different from regular pure drive, does anyone know ?? Is it heavier or lighter, more powerful ?? and what is the reason for releasing this ?? Is there a market for this.?:confused:

    I believe it's actually a Pure Storm limited edition. It's a 95 sq inch, about 12oz that's designed as a player-stick.

    Strange that it would be days away and us not having heard about yet. But possible. I'm not all that surprised though really. I called it a while back, but I would be surprised that it would be out this soon.

    You must be confused with the release of the Pure Storm LTD any day now.

    It must have been a misunderstanding. Boss-man Chris had not heard this.

    I was at the first week of the French Open and they had a Babolat booth with the Pure Storm you guys are talking about. It has a leather grip and a straight beam frame. I'll get some pics up for you guys in a couple days. Along with the specs.
