    ***•• Pure Storm Club ••***

    I have been playing with this frame for about a year and a half and I love it, I recently ordered my fourth frame. In it I use cyberflash 56 main gosen sheep 17 58 cross. Also I keep it complety stock except for a tourna. I think I have found a racket and a string setup that I play great...

    Babolat Pure Storm vs Everything

    This guy is just one of those typical wanabees who think they have big balls who uses a ps85 and think every other racket is a toy.

    Switching to the Pure Storm

    just wondering, what strings did you try? I like gosen og sheep on this frame but it is a tad powerful at 60/57 I think i'll try it higher. Cyberflash plays great on this frame, but better yet hybrid cyber and the gosen.

    Which Strings To Get!

    Its not even right to compare these two strings. Simply put, if you are not a string breaker and dont hit realy hard, polys are not worth it. In your position I would go with a higher guage x-1 biphase, its a realy nice multi. ps: just because pros use the string, and it is "the most popular...

    Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 16/17

    I dislike hurricane tour 17. I had TW put my new batch of pure storms all at 57, I should have tried a single set first. It had a really wierd feel, hard to explain, deffinetly the one of the most unique feeling polys you will ever try. I just couldnt deal with the wierd feel. And it had...

    Pure storm review

    half an ounce works great. also you really dont need any in the head since it is already pretty solid and has a high enough swing weight.

    How soon until Pure Storm Cortex?

    I think the pure storm is fine the way it is, i dont know how a cortex version will improve it, but only making it more muted.

    Pure storm review

    It really didnt change the playability that much despite being a bit more manuverable. It was also easier to come around for my forehand.

    Pure storm review

    Just ordered 2 more from tw and got hurricane tour 17 in them. I was going to wait for the new ones to come out but I figure that this plays exellent and how much can babolat really improve in an already great playing frame?

    Syn Gut or Multi to hybrid with Poly

    well maybe you found 2 exceptions. Also zyex has a different composition. Generally speaking, multi's do not fare well in poly hybrids, and many people feel that the bit of extra playability is not worth the lower durability compared to a poly/syn gut hybrid.

    Who here has actually found their perfect setup?

    What I have right now I think is great. But there is a lot of stuff out there, so I may never know.:( Sometimes it is best to get something you like, maybe tweak with some lead, and adjust. "love the one you're with".

    Syn Gut or Multi to hybrid with Poly

    Beaten to death. Puting a multi in your poly hybrid will be a waste because the poly will cut through the multi very quickly. Wont happen with a solid core syn gut. And the playability is about the same. Someone with over 750 posts must have been explained this at least once before.

    Why do tight string tensions give you more control?

    No, dwell gives you control. People feel that tighter sting tension gives them more control because they do not want the extra power from the strings. They do not want anything from their rackets, like why pete string his gut so high on his ps85

    No too different. It felt easier to swing and slightly more manuverable. The spin on the forehand was a little better due to more whip. However adding lead the the head makes the racket to cumbersome, which is why I didnt do it.

    Babolat Pure Storm or Pure Control?

    But the pure storm I feel plays like a heavier racket.

    Who here has actually found their perfect setup?

    I have been trying to reah my perfect setup for years. This includes a racket that I am perfectly happy with and play best with, lead places in all the right places for me, swingweight just right, strings and tension that is perfect for my game, right gripshape, ect. the list goes on. Not even...

    Yes the pure storm has a very plush feel to it when you hit the sweet spot, if you find it too light as you are used to your 12+ oz 200g, i reccomend 10+g's in the handle. It plays great.

    well im pretty pissed. my coach was going to get me a few more pure storms from the rep for cheap but he told me that they are discontinued. I am pretty sure that it will be replaced by a "cortexed" version and I dont know if it will be any better. Should I wait and try the cortex version and...

    How many hours before restringing Big Banger 16L ALU Power?

    This statement i find is not quite the rule for more serious players to abide to. Just re-string when you find that the strings feel dead, if not that, restring however often you can economically.

    This Is Some Buuull

    Its not re=released, its only for a limited time and only a few thousend are made. 180 is not bad considering most other mass produced rackets are of that price. 100 bucks max? please.

    Great stick. Switched from lm prestige mp and glad I did. Does everything well and I cant really find any weaknesses. the only thing that bugged me was the almost even balance, but that was fixed with 15g in the handle. This is one modification that I highly reccomend.

    Are Multis Worth It/Overrated?

    sorry, the poll is screwed up, i didnt intend to make it a poll at first so i guess you can share your comments.

    Is polyester less harsh in main or cross?

    gut would be softer in the mains. try a lower tension maybe around 58/56

    How to string a Pure Storm 98 for high topspin + control?

    I would say any poly main gut crosses combo would give all you want. I personally feel really good with just a poly syn gut job, but since you have access to gut, poly/gut around 54/57 you cant go wrong.

    Are Multis Worth It/Overrated?

    Im gunna start skipping multis. I find everything I need in some good syn guts and polys. If I really want to use a multi, I would cross it with a good syn gut. Reasons i dislike polys once again. -break real quick -string movement -expensive (usually) -poor tension matinence =many go dead...
