Lol, i play with a pure-drive. i wouldn't go so far as to say it's worse than a plank of wood (it most definitely is not)
but there are definitely better racquets on the market. for my next one i'm looking at Yonex. i've used them a few times and i think i'm in love.
What yonex racquet did you used?I recently bought a rds001 mid,I am doing fine with it,just play for 2 hours but the elastic feeling I have with it give me some second thoughts about it;I play in a few days with it again and I'll see what happens.
