Pure drive Roddick plus 2012 replacement

Hi, I love how my old Roddick plus plays but they are old and In a really bad shape. I tried the Pure drive tour plus 2015 but didn't like it. It felt like a complete different racket, it felt heavy and slow in comparison. Has anyone tried both the new tour plus 2018 and Roddick? How it plays? Similar to Roddick plus or more similar to tour plus 2015? Any other racket I should look at? Thanks.

Your best option is the 2018. I think it hits better ground strokes (more spin) but the serve is down just a tiny bit on power. Either way hands down better than the 2015 model imo. The feel is a little muted but I find more power and spin on groundies than any previous version of this stick. I still have three of my black models left, but I find myself playing with the new one.
