Pure Aero Vs. and Weight?

Curious to hear from folks that have played the Aero storm or the Pure Aero Vs... TW lists the strung weight at 11.1 oz, does it feel unstable? Is it usually a platform racquet that people add weight to?

In stock form it's not too terrible -- there's decent weight built into the hoop, but after hitting with some people who hit a heavy balls, I ended up making my frame around 335 total grams (around 11.8oz)...I added a leather grip and some lead under it as well...great platform frame...

I've done this same experiment with other lighter frames -- recently the pure control line -- and it didn't work as well as the new aero vs...

Really like what I'm reading, cause I didn't like the Pure Control customised either! I'm more or less settled really... But that holic urge haha
 
i feel like the whole "stability" thing has a lot to do with how cleanly you are hitting the ball ...
I agree with this.

It's the same argument comparing the 2013 APD with the Pure Aero. I think the APD rewards the clean hitter much better than the stock Pure Aero but the stock Pure Aero is a lot more forgiving to those who aren't so "clean".

Looks like the VS is probably going to be a better next gen "go to" frame for the 2013 APD lovers. I hear there is also going to be a VS Tour model so I'm looking forward to comparing the stock VS, the Tour VS and customised versions of both.
