Should I Buy a Pure Drive Now?

I have two old Pure Drives, and I recently learned one is cracked. My pro lent me the new PD, and it feels good. I was planning to buy two.

But now I hear there will be a new one later this year. True? If so, should I hold off? Or maybe just buy one?

i agree you should probably hold off, especially because they arn't on sale right now and if one gets released soon, itll give the current one a sale. Otherwise I reccomend buying a used one off the forum.

The cheapest clear outs I saw a long time ago was around $100. Brand new but with newer version coming out. I m glad I bought only one as I had to sell it because of the stiffness.

It depends on how badly you need the second frame. If you are a frequent string breaker and you are playing a match and break a string you are gone. Also you have to factor in how long it takes to get your racquet restrung.
If you are a keen player I would get a second frame now. There are probably plenty for sale second hand at a good price.

I feel that there's always going to be the newest, latest, greatest when it comes to tennis. If you like the racquet, why wait, go ahead and get it now and enjoy playing with it. Also look on eeeBay for racquets, lot's of good deals there. I bought 3 of my 4 racquets there and they were well below retail price.

i agree with the above. the newest/latest/"greatest" may not always be the best"est" for your/our game.
most pros does not use the retail newest/latest/greatest releases every year/couple of years - they use what works for them, even though they can be years old.
i agree with getting another one if this is the one you are used to/play well

Buy a 18ver and wait to demo the newest version when it releases to see if it will suit your tastes.

Do you have a backup if your current Pure Drive goes out of action during a match?

If you have something you can live with, then you're probably best waiting for the newest release and the testing side-by-side with the current release.

That way if you like the newest more, you won't have spent the money. And if you like the current version more, it'll be on sale to have even cheaper.

I mean, I'd also take the time to potentially look at competitor offerings of you had the time/inclination.
