I began using the pure drive years ago due to Roddick. I actually loved it. I think its the best racquet for serve and baseline. Large sweet spot area as well as light frame suited me well. However I noticed that as I got better my style was changing, (or just developing). I no longer can lie to myself I have Roddick's style. I have a very nice serve and slice as well as good control on the forehand. I am currently playing for Glendale College Tennis Team and need a racquet that will suit my needs. Would it be a good idea to switch to ncode nsix one from my babolat? I noticed the weight is heavier on ncode and you need faster racquet speed to compliment that.
