    I got my pure roddick a wk ago but I just saw an ad at my school for 3 babolat PD teams (great condition, i saw the pics). I'm thinking of getting those since the price is GOOD, almost half off.

    Sooo which racquet is better?? should I or shouldn't I buy the PD team??

    From using the roddick, I see that I have to put alot of spin onto the ball to get it in and my elbow does hurt a bit after 1.5-2 sets (singles). Basically, add lots of spin roddick is good, don't add any, the balls either fly out or super slow.

    Thanks for your inputs.

    Are the Pure Drives the new ones with the Cortex or the older models?

    If they are the newer models with the Cortex then I can't comment on them, but if they are the older models I would say by all means stick with the Pure Drive Roddick.

    See my playtest review for a couple comparisons between the Roddick and the old Pure Drive:

    BTW: if you're elbow hurts with the Roddick then it will hurt even worse with the standard Pure Drive.

    I'm not exactly sure. I have a feeling its the old ones, b/c of the pictures. The ad said "3 Babolat Pure Drive Teams for sale".

    Isn't "pure drive team" just a newer name for the old pure drives?? thats what i'm thinking.
