My racquet hunt!

Okay.
Racquets that are good for me spec-wise. (Oh, and if the design is horrible, lol).
1. The Pure Storms
2. The Head Speeds
3. The Head Extremes
4. EXO3 Tour 16x18
5. VCore 98 D

I want depth, spin and pop in a racquet. What racquets in that list should absolutely avoid?

When I am down to my last list I will demo the racquets in my list and come down to a decision.

With a some lead on the hoop, the Pure Storm Ltd. Also, the KPS88! Been working with the 88 for a little while, and it def has those qualities...

If you're going to try the PDR might as well get the original in for a demo as well. It's a better racquet, IMO, and a better base for customization.

The Pure Drive??
Used to play that. Wasn't so good for me.
Oh and just saying... I heard the Extreme was like the AeroPro, so if I don't really like the AeroPro should I leave out the Extreme?

The extreme in my opinion is the best of both worlds between the puredrive and aerodrive. Personaly if you can generate decent pace on your own the speeds are fanastic the exo i've heard is low powered. I happen to think the aero storm tour is better than alk of the pure storms except the limited but that doesn't havegreat pop. How about the dunlop 500 tour?

I did not use any of the racket out of your list, but if I understand correctly, you're looking for a comfortable medium weight racquet with a large spot between a power and control? In that case I would have to recommend Head Radical MP(MG or LM version), Wilson K-Blade MP, or a Prince Ozone Tour. this is my opinion.

Well if it's like the Aeropro and Pure Drive then it definitely can't hit deep??

The rad mp wasn't for me.
I'll think about the Blade MP
Oh, and you recommended the Ozone Tour... it must be like the Exo3?

Hey dont just rush to pick a racquet spec wise. Try to identify the string pattern that you favour. Head speed is good one but it has closed pattern, I got good spin from it but not sure everyone will get the same. Exo3 tour was good for me for both depth control, serve and spin wise but lacked bit of control. May be the strings moved so much. Pure strom tour should be a good option for you. 16*20 is something between open and close pattern.

1. Exo3 Tour 16x18
2. Pure Storm Tour GT
3. Head Speed MP 16x19

I previously bought a racket only from the new lineup. but ultimately concluded that the purchase of any racquet without demo is a risk. so much better discounted rackets

Considering that I have no possibility to use the demo program, now I just ordered three different rackets, all of the fallen price. Head LM Radical OS, Prince O3 White MP, Yonex Rqis 2 Tour. I hope 1 or 2 of them liked me, but in any case I will use the lead tape, which is also present in my order. any feedback, they are generally a little value. own sense of importance. In this forum topic of Yonex RQis 95 XL Tour, almost all unsubscribe in the subject-enthusiastic about the racket. but on my experience I can say that this is the worst racket № 2, № 1 at Babolat Pure Storm GT Ltd (also very popular stick)

if you can not use the demo to buy several different racquets, saving on delivery. Otherwise, buying a racquet, did not you liked a couple of months you make a new order

And what was that bout the RQiS Tour XL 95 and btw do you disagree with any of the three racquets? (exo3 tour 16x18, head speed mp 16x19, pure storm tour)

too much off-center shots with Rqis XL 95, may be due to a thick beam. with regards to 3 racquet-Head Speed MP 18x20 has a very small sweet spot, the lack of power
