With the Pure Storm Tour Plus, Babolat have taken an impressive, control oriented racquet, extend the length and produced a racquet that combines both control and some very useful power. With the length comes some extra heft felt during swinging, resulting in a very stable racquet. We found this one to plough through the contact zone with a very solid feel. At net this update to the Pure Control Team Plus offers lots of control. Stronger players will enjoy the stable response especially when up against power hitting. On serve the added leverage results in lots of access to pace and spin - providing the player has the game to match the spec of this racquet. The Pure Storm Tour Plus features Babolat's Carbon Xtrem construction, comprising of a specially braided graphite utilized around the racquet head for increased stability. We found a very comfortable and stable response from this racquet from all areas of the court. Advanced level players (4.5+) looking for an extended length player's racquet should definitely take this one out for a demo.
