    I don't like my v-con 17. It's too light, unstable and too powerful for my groundstrokes and i don't serve well with it. I tried to make it better with lead but it didn't work.
    Now i've read here some positive reviews about the babolat pure orange. Maybe this is the racket i'm looking for.
    Right now i'm using a yonex rd ti control 04 as my main racket and i like this one much better but nobody is familiar with this racket.
    Is there anyone who played both rackets and what are the differences.

    I have used both of these. I didnt like the V Con 17 either.
    Pure Storm is much different. Much better. The M Fil 300 or the Maxply are a nice less expensive alternative to the Pure Storm.
    I have tried a lot of racquets in this weight range. I really liked the Pure Storm but it just hurt my arm to much.

    I have played with both - albeit both were leaded up with a heat-shrink sleeve which added about 15 grams to each.

    I liked the V-Con for its topspin, slice and power. Unfortunately for me the extra length is something I always struggled with, but in the end the power level was a little too high for me. I ended up stringing it higher and higher and this is where I started to feel the stiffness of the frame in my forearm.

    The Pure Storm is one of my current sticks and I would say it has a little less power and a little less spin but it is more flexible and slightly less powerful - which is pretty much what I was looking for. I think it is definitely worth a demo.
