    Are there weighted plates or something inside the handle of a Pure Storm Tour that provides the extra mass and more head light balance versus the non-Tour version?

    What other differences are there between the Pure Storm Tour vs non-Tour?

    It's just like how the 6.1 95 is different from the 6.1 Team, and how the Aero Storm Tour is different from the Aero Storm.
    Just that the weight of the graphite in the handle is a bit denser, which gives more weight. There can also be more density in the hoop, but I don't know about that.
    I think someone said that the 6.1 Tours actually had some lead in the handle, but not too sure about that.

    Nothing unusual inside the handle of the PS tour gt. I have opened the handle cover of mine. Why not demo both?

    So inside the handle is hollow, but what about on the handle itself? Are there weights placed in the pallet/PU? Has anyone taken off the grip and dismantled the handle?

    My Pure Storm GTs have 2 little weights molded into the inside of the handles. Not sure how much weight.

    Cheers,

    I found a dead mouse in my Tour version. That is probably the source of the additional weight. :)
