    I am willing to sell my puredrive GT (2011) for a Prestige Mid. I am not sure if it is worth me selling. What do you guys think I should do.

    The reason behind me selling it is because I think that the Puredrive isn't that control based and not that stable.

    Thanks if you guys can help me out. ;)

    The Mid, due to its small head size, offers little power. If compared to the Pure Drive GT, the difference is huge.

    Maybe you should try the other Prestiges (MP or Pro). They still offer a great amount of control, but the power offered is not-so-low as the Mid.

    Either you're already willing to sell the Pure Drive or you are not sure that it's worth selling - which is it?

    I am not sure if I should sell it or not. I tried the Prestige Pro and I didn't like it, but the mid I love.

    It looks like you're bundling a set of multiple complex issues into a single post. If I were you, I would focus on your decision on whether or not to sell the Pure Drive, as a starting point.

    I suggest you demo a few racquets, because you might regret buying a racquet that's known for it's control. there are many "control based" racquets out there, but they all feel differently.

    It's better to demo first if possible; the "Mid" is very low powered, and you may not be used to it in a match situation.

    Well, I demo-ed every racket that I would like to have. And So far, I bought the Pro staff 90. But I want different racket that feels similar to it. But just a bit lighter. So the 200 tour is pretty similar, but feels a bit under power, but the Presige mid felt almost just right. The Radical pro felt too shaky. The PS95 felt off and disconnected for me.

    Tomorrow I am going to try the 2012 Pure Drive GT.

    The PS 90 was my frame of choice when I playtested the Prestige Mid, and the exactly feeling I got was: "Wow, it feels similar to the PS, just a bit lighter." :)

    the problem with me is that its too light for me to get a solid punch, and with its soft flex and tight string pattern, i get 0 power out of it. except i can serve, and hit slices pretty awesomely with the PM
