Babolat Aero Storm GT Racquet Review

98 square inches, 16 x 20 string pattern
 
Like it’s heavier brother, the Aero Storm GT is a control player’s delight with an arm and shoulder friendly swing weight (324). It’s virtually identical to the Babolat Aero Storm Tour GT in every specification, just a hair lighter.
That low weight makes the Babolat Aero Storm GT a great frame for the aggressive baseliner looking to bash or those looking for a serving frame that won’t have you running for the ice pack after a long match. Feel players or Fabrice Santoro-wannabees will really like this one, too. Groundies oozed with precision and spin was customarily solid, as we’ve come to expect from Babolat’s spin-generating frames. Topspin climbed to at least shoulder height with a good swing, and slices hugged the ground at knee-scraping heights. Balls won’t explode into total fuzz leftovers for non-power players with this frame. But those not needing help in the power department would sure benefit from the premium control features of this racquet, which employs the GT (Graphite/Tungsten) braided technology. The Aero Storm GT racquet has a bit more dampened feel than the Tour GT. And like its brother, the Aero Storm really shines in the mobility department.
 
Those half volleys or quick on-the-rise pick-ups that tend to be so problematic with those heavier sticks? They were a snap with this frame. Recommended for 4.0 and up players with medium to fast swingspeeds.
