Players looking for great maneuverability and control will find the Pure Storm a perfect fit. This latest version is cosmetically updated from the previous GT version, but features exactly the same spec and performance. The Pure Storm GT maintains a crisp and clean feel but manages to offer a more stable, solid feel with the inclusion of GT technology, a mix of graphite and tungsten, in the frame. Aggressive players will find it easy to take advantage of the spin friendly nature of the Pure Storm GT. Though players who like to take big cuts at the ball will find plenty of pop to put away the ball, in the tradition of player's frames, the Pure Storm is control oriented by nature. Our TW playtesters found enough control that they could hit out from the baseline without fear of having shots fly. At net, the racquet offered superb maneuverability, a crisp feel and good control. Intermediate to advanced level players who are seeking a maneuverable racquet that doesn't sacrifice feel or control should take this Pure Storm GT out for a demo.

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.

PULLEY FUNCTION

  • - The WOOFER eliminates string lock-up: the strings are free to move.
  • - The whole surface area reacts on impact: with the WOOFER, more strings work together when striking the ball. The strings are interactive. This increases sweetspot size, improving forgiveness during off-center shots and absorbing much of the shock produced during ball impact.

PISTON FUNCTION

  • - Increase in the Trampoline Effect: The piston function enables greater surface deformation on impact, delivering 10% extra power and ensuring that the strings retain their energy for a longer time.
  • - Shock Absorption: The pistons act like a suspension system to dampen unwanted vibration.
