For those who don't like the 11.5 plus heavier rackets but still want a "player's racket" with the thinner beam but solid pop, the Pure Storm at 11 oz strung is superb. It is so maneuverable but yet so playable for an advanced player. It serves beautifully, volleys great and allows baseliners to hit big flat shots or put great spin on the ball. The 98 sq. inch is perfect, not too small, not too big. The stiffness is great too, as well as the string pattern. Just a great racket for a 4.0-6.0 player.
