    is it blue??

    i dont think im asking for too much in a racquet. its like what im looking for in a woman: a rich asian doctor with a british accent who plays piano and is a solid 4.0 that can play mixed dubs with me and never get angry.

    Anyway. I'm not able to play as much as I used to nowadays, so I ditched my Angells for some Pure Aeros for the time being. Standard length, bone stock (well, I changed the grip to Skin Feel). Awesome frames!

    Right there as well. If I went nuts I would buy a Wilson Ultra and extend it, but the low power,classic frame is extremely dependent on fantastic footwork. Mine is not bad actually, but the Pure Aero matches up to it better than a PT630.

    I definitely may check out the new XL Pure Drive whenever it comes out. Wouldn't mind having one in the bag to compare with the PA+. The wide open pattern of the PA+ is very, very good for my style of hitting, but if they tightened it up a touch to extend string life, I would not complain.

    My main investment is probably a pair of clay shoes. I desperately need some down here for all the Har-tru.

    Yes - Skin feel is the way to go for sure! Those stock grips are just way too thick.
