Great Racquet
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I just demoed a few racquets including this, a Pure Aero, and a Pure Strike. Of the bunch, I like this the best as it gave me plenty of power and felt really good. I had a Pure Drive 100 in the past and switched to a Pure Strike for more control. I'm going forward with buying this racquet as I still like having the added power without sacrificing too much control. This is a winner!
