Michelle: Setup for your Pure drives?
Which version of the Pure drives do you use? Is it retail stock or pro stock? String setup? Did you customize them with lead, where and by how much? (My bad if theres already a thread about it)
I just watched the Bonus footage and i see you blasting forehand winners.

To be honest, I have a mix of all kinds of Pure Drives that I hit with (I really do just love that family of racquets!)...there are about 5 that reside next to my desk that I have custody over I love the PD GT (the smurf blue one) as is, in stock form, but haven't been using that one all that much lately. That's one I can just pick up and use and it feels perfect in my hands (I prefer it over the most recent update to be honest).
I also have a couple PDRs.
One that is brand new and hasn't been spec'd or even strung yet -- I got 2 new ones right when we were bombarded with tons of new racquets between Head, Prince, Wilson, Babolat, etc. I'm waiting to spec that one after the crazy playtest season lightens up or when we start playtesting more on strings (and less racquets).
I have one PDR that I use that is in stock form that came in at 11.6 ounces with a 331 swingweight Stiffness is at 72. 13 pts HL. Haven't customized it at all yet because I'm enjoying it as is at the moment.
Then, I have a PDR that is weighted up, that I love! It is 12.6 ounces, has a leather grip, and some tail weight, a swingweight of 332 and is 8 pts HL. I really like that one a lot.
I want to play around with some more customization, and can honestly say, I can pick up almost any PD/PDR and enjoy hitting with it (but it's fun to find that you can make a racquet you already love perform even better).
String setup -- I gravitate toward the deader/low powered polys. I really like Lux Savage (white) in that racquet. I string in the high 50s...(used to be around 60-62, but I've gotten away from those tensions lately). I also like a lot of the Solinco strings!
Hope that helps some!
