I purchased these sticks in France in 1996, from a guy who had been playing with them for a little over a year. I believe this first generation Pure Control was never sold in the US.
I LOVE these racquets (in spite of the nasty paint job, which is a huge compliment coming from me). Unfortunately, they are massive (363 grams strung, no lead) and very head-heavy. I do not have the strength (or technique) to hit effectively with them for more than an hour! http://picasaweb.google.com/tototour...K7Oq_fnndqgYg#
Wow, they look very interesting indeed. I'd love to try one, although I doubt I can handle them for too long as well! Please email me if you think of letting them go anytime. firstname.lastname@example.org
