    I demo'ed one of the new pure storms today (just hitting some serves), and it felt incredibly light for a player's racquet...the little "lead tape location" writing on the 12 o'clock part of the head got me wondering--does everyone slap lead tape on this racquet to make it more stable/heavy? I really like the look and shape of the racquet, but it is just too damn light for my liking. would I be able to solve this problem with some lead tape? If so, where would you recommend putting it?

    thanks.

    TRY THE PURE STORM TOUR... Babolat finally understands a heavier racquet is what players need for stability, control, and less tennis elbow

    I put about 15 grams on the 3 and 9 oclock and so far its been awesome. Adds a bit more pop to the racket but really gives it a solid, plow through feeling that it always felt like it was missing on off center hits. I'd give it a try yourself, but it made a huge difference for me.

    They Have had the Pure Control for a while which is pretty much the same as the Pure Storm Tour

    Why bother with the lead tape if you can get the Pure Storm Tour which is a Pure Storm with extra weight. The Tour version has much better weight and balance.

    the pure control is stiffer than the pure storm tour also known as the pst2007
    they also had 2 versions of the pure control 2001 (black inside hoop/head) and it seems heftier than the pure control 2003 (red inside hoop/head)

    i play with the pc2003 and the pst2007, except i lead them up with .05 ounces of lead at 3 and 9 each, and 0.4 ounces inside the grip

    this listing has a good price, and links to other specs. also talks about how babolat discontinued the pure control and replaced iwth the pure storm tour.
