    Well the Pure Storm LTD is probably the lowest powered racket I've played with. It's very dead feeling which I like. So I guess you can say that the PSL is one of the most "control" oriented sticks out there by the same logic...

    For who?
    A beginner needs a different racket from a ATP pro.
    A hard hitter needs a different racket from a soft pusher.
    A strong person needs a different racket from a weak person.

    For a normal person, has the force and also has control on his arm, but seeks the racquet with most control of the world.

    Thanks

    A Head Microgel or BeckerLondon is much softer than any Storm.

    And of course, control without the needed power to force the issue is worthless.
    Just like power without control is worthless.
    You need a combination of both.
    Most top players use a moderately stiff rackets nowadaze, somewhere around 64-68.

    It's fairly powerful, though controllable with proper strokes that are conducive to the modern game.

    Youtek is plenty controllable with a dose of power.
    Exact racket is like you choosing a girlfriend. There are certain parameters, but you gotta take what you can get.
    We all think "no fat chicks". BUT, what about OliveOil and the beanpole thin with NO shape?
    You can always choose later.
    But if you choose sooner, you really get nothing.

    Probably the PSL, or Prestige MP, something with a dense string pattern and a low swing weight that lets you take large cuts at the ball.

    12 polite responses and then you feel the need to be rude to the guy that says, "Sorry, english is not my official language".

    Define your swing type and your needs, and this board can help you. Are you consistantly hitting long? Do you hit flat, or spin. Do you feel you time the ball well, but have inconsistant results as far a accuracy? And what stick are you currently using? Flat hitters with long swings are likely to suggest smaller heads with denser string patterns, because that suits their style. Spin freaks are going to suggest racquets with open string patterns, because spin allows them to control the ball. It is never about the best racquet in the world, it is always about the best racquet for you. Give us more info, this board is full of people that care, and we will try to get you close to what you need. Ignore the occasional hater.
