Building off the success of the Aero Storm Tour (previously called the Aero Storm), Babolat off this lighter, more maneuverable version of the player's frame. The Aero Storm 2008 offers the same crisp, comfortable feel as its heavier counterpart. The racquet combines the AeroPro beam design in the throat and the and Pure Storm beam design in the hoop. The racquet provides a control-oriented feel and spin-friendly aspects off the ground, and nice maneuverability at net with the head light balance. This Aero Storm is a good choice for juniors looking to move into an adult-sized racquet and adults in the 4.0+ level who are looking for racquet built for maneuverability. With a lower swingweight and static weight, the Aero Storm is also great for players who wish to customize to their own specs. Note: Due to racquet stiffness, when stringing with a polyester or a co-polyester we highly suggest 54lbs as a starting point for tension.

Woofer *Woofer Technology from Babolat
THE FIRST DYNAMIC SYSTEM WHICH MAKES THE FRAME AND THE STRINGS INTERACT WHEN STRIKING THE BALL
A tennis racket is a frame with strings. The frame is basically static and holds the driving force of the racquet - the strings - in place. The strings are attached to both sides of the frame. Only some strings are active when struck by the ball. This means that racquets do not deliver their full potential. Babolat set out to imagine a racquet optimizing the frame and the strings - to invent a frame which permits all the strings to work together to their full potential when striking the ball.
Babolat Aerobeam The world's most aerodynamic racquet. +15% air penetration thanks to the aerobeam technology.
Cortex Babolat's Cortex shaft vibration dampening system is designed to offer greater comfort during play. Available in two versions, the Cortex system used in the Pure series of racquets reduces harmful racquet vibrations without filtering out the feedback required for feel. The result of filtering unnecessary vibrations results in what Babolat calls a "pure feel." The Cortex system used in other Babolat racquets filters and dampens for maximum comfort.
