    Its like something a kid would draw with all of the colors.

    LOL. It should play the same as the current Pure Drive which I have no idea of, same frame just different paintjob I believe.

    Is this only the PJ that is different ? Is the spec different at all ? I asked Eric Babolat to raise the sweet spot on this racket. Wonder if he will do it.?

    Yeah... Or at least I think so. The matte paint may make it feel softer.

    I think it would look better if they made the blue and yellow parts red.

    Did you buy this frame? or is it not released yet

    I am so tired of ugly paint jobs on racquets. The racquet firms should hire the people that design tennis shirts; those people are superb for the most part.

    Between the baseline and netcord.
    I can't stand these limited edition sticks. Apparently they're not selling quick enough.

    Like the colours in fact. Much less the Pure Drive or Aero Pro Drive series. PD are rocket launchers, APD have a nice sweetspot yes, but if it's off-center, your arm is gonna feel it.

    Would've liked a Pure Storm Roland Garros, really.

    So there are flecks of red, blue and yellow? It disrupts the darkly elegant and quietly menacing tones of the current PJ. It's like Batman decided to wear a fluoro party necklace, the kind you wear on New Years Eve.

    I can imagine the discussion in the Babolat office:
    "Hey Guillame, those Wilson Juices look very colourful, and seem to sell well...whaddya say we sex up the FO Edition with some similar colours?"

    "Yeah good idea Serge, that should be a good seller...if it works for Wilson it should work for us...the kids will like those extra colours"

    On TWE and the Roland Garros store it looks like a gloss paint but on the pic here it looks matte.

    I think I heard that there is going to be a ltd. edition US Open Pure Storm.

    Does anyone know if this is true?

    I would be surprised. Pure Drive would be more likely IMO given the tournament and especially Roddick.
