    If you had a choice between old version of Pure drive and new version of Pure drive, which one would you prefer to play and why?
    Im thinking of shifting racquet but dont know which one i like better, but i can defntely tell taht it feels different. For me i like the old one better, it feels little bit more stable and heavier, but dont know if this feels same to you all. Please let me know what you think

    how old of a version are you talking about? the old ones had no woofer grommets, while the newer models do, that may be the difference you're experiencing. haven't played the one w/o woofer grommets, but i like the newer pd's just fine.

    Are you sure about that cause to me it feels not toally but a bit different , it feels like old cosmetic one feel little bit heavier and little bit more stable. Some of the people who swtiched from old to new one have been telling me the same thing. I definitely like the newer design better but i like the old one for its heaviness and the balance.

    there is a definite difference between the two PDs. The old cosmetic has a softer feel and plays more flexible than the newer cosmetic. i don't know why this is, but it has upset a number of people.
