I have tried the Babolat Pure Drive Cortex Standard and thought it was a very nice racket just too powerful but it looked like it was strung quite loose ? if i had one strung at 60 would it be any better ?
Also tried the APDC and didnt like it at all.
Friend has a Microgel Extreme thought it was ok oddly shaped head :S
I dont think the shape of the head should matter
If you string the PD with the right tension it works perfectly, it depends also on how hard you hit. If you hit really hard you should use then 62 Kgs in tension maybe? It would be good since it will add speed to your strokes. The Microgel Extreme for me is really similar to the PD even though its lighter and less powerful maybe? but great feel of the ball.
Now, please don't buy the N Blade
. I really don't like Wilson, especially this racquet, is to thin and for same reason stiff to me.
