Background: Current frame is the Pure Storm Tour GT. Before that, I hit the BLX 6.1 95 18x20 for about a year. I'm in my 30s, a solid NTRP 4.5, and I play both singles and doubles. Review: Both are strung with full Solinco Tour Bite. The PSTGT is the 2011 version, and the PDR+ is the previous version. No lead on either. PDR+ I've always used more control oriented frames, and I've never been a big fan of extended length frames. With that said, the transition from the PSTGT to the PDR+ was pretty easy. It took me about a set and a half to settle in. First off, if you handed me this frame without telling me it was extended length, I never would have guessed it. Never once did I find it sluggish or hard to get around. Maybe because I've always played with 12 oz frames with a 330-340 swingweight, but the extended length was a non-issue for me. The PDR+ is definitely more powerful, but I found it to be very controllable. On groundstrokes, I found myself holding back at first. But once I got comfortable with it, I was able to take a really good cut at the ball without too much fear of it sailing long. This thing is a serving monster. Power, control, topspin... it was all there. At the net, I found it to be very maneuverable. It produced crisp volleys with good depth, and I was also able to hit touch shots when needed. PSTGT I love the control of this frame. I've always felt like I could put the ball anywhere I wanted. I wish it had just a bit more pop, and I'm not a huge fan of it's soft feel. The full bed of Tour Bite helps that, but that crispness I desire still isn't quite there. This frame does everything well, but I don't think it is exceptional at anything. Groundstrokes are very rewarding if you find the sweetspot, serving is accurate, and net play is consistent. I sometimes find it difficult to generate the spin that I desire (especially on serve), and I really don't generate pace on serve with this frame like I have been able to do with others. Conclusion I'm looking forward to spending more time with the PDR+, but I honestly think I could switch back and forth between these frames without too much trouble.
