Stringing information for Babolat Pure Storm Tour GT Racquets: None available

The Babolat Pure Storm Tour GT gets a cosmetic update in this latest version. We found this racquet to provide a stable and solid feel from all areas of the court. The frame features Graphite Tungsten, which is a hybrid material, combining braided carbon fibers and tungsten filaments. With GT technology, Babolat claims increases in energy recovery by 10%. As we have come to expect from the Pure Storm Tour over the years, this version is all about control thanks to its crisp response. Our TW Playtesters were able to hit deep, penetrating shots from all areas of the court. Thanks to its head light balance and open string pattern, the swing speed and bite needed for heavy spin is easy to generate. Up at net, the weight and torsional stability make the Pure Storm Tour GT an asset. Our testers found enough punch to put away volleys while also finding the stability needed for solid volleying. Babolat's new Skin Feel grip adds even more feel to the overall setup. All in all, we found this to be a great control-oriented player's racquet with some added stability thrown in. Recommended for 4.5+ players.

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.
