Gran playing with a PD 107?! Say it ain't so!
 
I THOUGHT I heard in the Organix 10 Mid review that Gran is using a Pure Drive OS now, but THAT can't be true...right?

Players like Seles, Shriver, Agassi, Venus, Serena, Annacone, Bartoli have all had pretty good careers with larger frames. If you don't think outside the box more and be more open, you'll always be lilguy.

Im arguing with my self lately,i found out that my blade 93 has a bigger sweetspot than the 104 version, then why use the bigger ???

jorel 02-06-2013 05:23 AM

not totally suprised...he mentioned he loved the prince warrior OS back in the review of that racquet

i talked to this top level NYr high ranked junior once and he thought most people should be using OS racquets

he told me to use an OS ...of course..i dont listen to him either...but when i do try OS...everything seems easier

Gran is recovering from shoulder surgery and is currently enjoying the easier access to power -- and less shoulder stress -- from the light and powerful Pure Drive 107. How this affects his racquet selection from here on out as his recovery progresses, remains to be seen.

He should just switch to the POG OS, no one will cry about that :twisted:

Initials or short terms are not my strong points. And... still learning.

Babolat Pure Drive series is not the most arm friendly. Woudnt Prince Exo Silver, Volkl Organix V1, Volkl Classic V1 or any Pro Kennex be better choices?

jorel 02-07-2013 12:51 PM

seems counterintuitive thoi....using a light racquet to rehab an arm???

I suppose he is using a lightweight, oversize racket because he has less strength right now and that racket is powerful and thus helps him "move the ball". Also, the oversize rackets gives him a bigger sweetspot. Finally, this is a racket he should be using as a transition to heavier and more demanding rackets. I suspect he will end up with a heavy, arm friendly, player oriented, midplus sized racket. For example a Volkl C10 Pro, a Pro Kennex Q Tour, a Pacific X Force Pro, or even a Yonex Vcore 97 Tour, to name a few.

yea but light racquets are usually known to aggravate arm injuries...just saying

People that are really good aren't hung up on using "players" rackets and equipment. Rackets and string are just tools for those people.

Just odd for a player who has referred to 95 sq in racquets as 'floppy' to have done a complete 180 and moved to a 107 oversize. Just seems out of character for him, even with the surgery recovery. Like a previous poster said though...if it were a POGO, it would be as BLASPHEMOUS I suppose lol
