Comments: This is a great racquet for advanced level players, but there are a couple things people should know
before buying. In my experience if you are stringing this with a poly you should string it lower than the recommended tension. I
string mine between 48-53 pounds. Whenever I would string it tighter than this the sweetspot would be too small, and not
enough power. You have to be up to date on your string jobs which can be kind of annoying. I restring mine after 5 hours of play.
Also, I added around 4g of lead total at the 3 and 9 o clock for more stability.
Comments: I like a lot of control but take big cuts when I play aggressively, and this is a
perfect fit for me.
Comments: I switched to this from a Wilson k90. The Wilson just had slightly too high of a static and swing weight
that would cause me to be late on shots and really work over my arm/shoulder when I played alot. I had hated every Babalot
racquet I had tried previously, but I was liking this one from the first stroke. The demanding nature of the k90 always made my
weaker shots (one-handed backhand and 2nd serve) unreliable. This racquet helped me develop weapons like a topspin backhand
and a kick serve. My putaway forehand wasn't quite what it was with the k90, but the amount of spin I can generate and less
weight brought my consistency way up. It has a great feel, and great ability for touch/feel shots thanks to the lower stiffness. Full
swings are a requirement, This racquet was made for the aggresive player. This racquet is very fast through the air, very
maneuverable. I do recommend 2 grams of lead at 12 for some more spin and pop. I only have one bad thing to say about the
racquet, and unfortunantly it's a bad one. Its lacking big time in the stability department. You won't really notice this if you're
taking good swings/punches at the ball during groundstrokes/volleys, but those shots you're trying to block back because your
out of positon, or chasing down trying to lob it back is where things get frustrating. I've now switched to the Wilson Pro Staff 95.
4grams of lead at 12 and the rest in the handle to get similar specs to this racquet. I now have a racquet with the Wilson feel that
I missed, stable as a rock, more spin, and more power(I don't feel like I've sacrificed any control either).
Comments: I've been playing with the Pure Storm GT for almost two
years. As much as I loved the control and heavy ball that I could hit with
it, I wanted something with a lower swingweight. I tried about 30
different sticks, from the light Dunlop 300 and Head Instinct to the
Wilson ProStaff 95 to the Pure Drive Roddick and Wilson Six.One 95. I
even bought the Babokat Aero Storm Tour GT. However, the Pure Storm
LTD GT was an unexpected treasure! I hit with a full western grip and
heavy topspin, so I thought the dense string pattern would be
unbearable. Due to the unique specs, however, I gave it a try. I ended up
beating a player that I'd only beaten once before. The heft and yet
maneuverable feel allowed me to toss my serve farther in front and go
get it with much more racquet head speed, resulting in a very deep and
much faster serve. On groundies the 9 pts HL balance and lower
swingweight allowed me to hit tremendous topspin, while the dense
string pattern allowed me to slam flat putaway groundies whenever I felt
like it. The amazing control and response from this stick demands that
you provide your own power and have very good mechanics, but if that
sounds like you, this stick may be for you, too! I feel that I can really hit
out in the ball without fear of hitting deep. This is my new stick of
choice and I just can't say enough about how controlled, precise,
versatile, and fantastic it is. A must demo far players seeking a solid, but
maneuverable epic players' stick. Great job Babolat!!!!
Comments: I've been using this stick for 2 years now, and I can't say
enough about how much I love it. My last frame was a K Blade 93, and it
felt like a board that required a huge brushing motion on the ball to
keep it in play because it had so much power for a player's racquet. This
frame gives me the same amount of feel, which is a lot, but it is much
more forgiving. The one thing I noticed was that this racquet requires a
lot of head speed to hit solid. It wasn't a problem for me, but it might
be one for others. This racquet is also by far the most maneuverable
frame I have ever used. This thing is really nice to use at the net. Overall,
this this by far the best frame made by Babolat.
Comments: I own the Ltd. original version, of 2007 I believe, and despite the 12oz weight its very fast and stable.
You can be very aggessive even on low and flat balls, as well as add tons of spin on higher shots. If you swing fast and break your
wrist the angle and spin generation is amazing. Same goes for the serve. The racquet gives you confidence to be aggressive at
will and try low % shots. It's more powerful than most people say, especially if you put 1-3 grams of lead at 12 o'clock. I used to
play with Prestiges and the Wilson 6.1 Classic, but I was late on some shots or couldn't attack well when I was tired. The Ltd. gives
you all the stability and power but with a fast feeling.
Comments: Everything the advanced players are saying about this
racquet I found to be absolutely true. It was very exciting getting
the Ltd. GT in the mail. However, this racquet completely bested me
from the very first swing! Through the past few days it has been like
re-learning how to play tennis since it is such a departure from the
racquets of my past. The accuracy and spin generation is impressive
especially for an 18x20 pattern @ 95 sq in. Once you dial in and get
your swings long and fast, the Ltd. GT will take you and your game
soaring to new heights...Fast! I bought it specifically to give me a
training tool and whew!...It has been working VERY well for me. As
previously stated, running wrist flick swings are puny at best, but
then again I am pretty weak. This racquet demands full, fast swings
from me in order to make any sort of pace. It took awhile to get used
to the 95 sq. in headsize down from my normal 102 sq. in from a heavily
lead-weighted Head Light Microgel Monster. Bottom line, if you are an advanced player this racquet will feel like
an extension of your arm...astounding!
If you are of intermediate skill level, don't fear the beast, work on
accuracy and swinging long and fast with good form and footwork and
you'll get better fast!
Comments: Great racquet. I always 'kinda' liked the standard Babolat Pure Storm but felt that racquet had too much
flex which negatively affected my 2-handed back-hand and return. The limited version is definitely stiffer which makes it near
perfect in my eyes. I also like the smaller head size (95 vs 98) that allows for better plow thru IMO. The limited is also light
enough to allow for customization, which it needs, I added a small amount of lead tape at the 10 and 12 positions. The limited is
certainly more controlled oriented than the standard version and thus less powerful. I have come to prefer less powerful racquets
strung loosely; the Pure Storm Limited fits the bill!
Comments: I sold this racquet last year because it didn't have the spin potential that I wanted, but I recently got to
use it again. My form has changed, I started hitting much flatter and
now all the balls go in magically. The string set up was different too; I switched from pro
hurricane regular 16 to pro hurricane tour 17. Even though I hit flatter, I can still rip a lot of
spin when I need to. The racquet is so stable and swings light. I'm an all around player, but I tend to offensive baseline a bit more
than serve and volleying and counter punching. I have a long swing, one handed back hand held with eastern backhand and semi
western forehand on the more conservative side. I have a big serve even though I'm relatively short (5'6") and a really high kicker
for second. I'm going to switch back to this racquet from my head speed 16x19.
Comments: I first tried this with my normal Luxilon ALU 55lb main/52lb cross set up. It
was difficult to hit the ball out of the court. Great control and stability. Decent spin. Great
control on flat shots. This racquet forces you to step in with a full swing to generate power.
Hitting shots on the run was difficult. I tweaked the string set up based on some of the reviews I read. I went with a 17L poly set
up this time at 50lb main/47lb cross and this thing hits like a dream without sacrificing that great control and feel. I'm hitting a
heavier ball with lots of spin and pace without sacrificing any consistency. This thing is just awesome. DO NOT GO with a standard
55lb string set up. Low tension and thin gauge is the way to go!!
Comments: From the switch between my Babolat Pure Drive Roddick Plus, I really liked this racquet. I had no
trouble adjusting. This racquet is very control friendly and still gives me a good deal of power. Feels really good on serves and
really stable at the net. Only con would be my backhand slice. I tend to hit the frame a lot due to the smaller headsize. I demoed
this racquet before purchasing it, and had to buy it. Overall, I would definitely recommend this racquet.
Comments: I never really liked the Babolat Pure Storms. I tried this racquet and
I loved it. I love the specs of this racquet because it fits me really well. I am a all around player. From the first shot this racquet
amazed me for feel to performance, but I was upset with my backhand slice. I used to
use the Head Youtek Speed 18x20.
Comments: I am a Wilson guy all the way. I use the Wilson BLX Six.One 95 which is a very open string pattern. One
of my friends gave me his Babolat stick so I thought I'd try it. At first I didn't like it but then I broke the strings that were on the
racquet within a set so I decided to string it myself but with a twist. For the crosses on top, I strung the first cross, skipped the
second, strung the third and skipped the fourth. This opened up the frame a bit more and gave me a little bit more power and
spin. In general, I liked the racquet but not enough to switch.
Comments:This is a fantastic racquet, I recently switched from the Babolat AeroPro Drive GT looking for a more
controlled racquet and found that the Babolat Pure Storm GT Ltd. is super at net and with directional play. On groundstrokes it
takes more effort and skill to get what you want but it's results are fantastic. Super racquet for getting what you want out of
Comments: I really like this racquet a lot with the Babolat RPM Blast string because it allows me to hit the ball a bit
harder but still have the same amount of topspin on the ball. I used to use the Head Microgel Radical MP which was a little to
loose and very light. This racquet is a little heavier and stiffer which I like. I am a 5.0 level player and I think the
racquet is better for people in the 4.5 to 6.0 level of play. I really like the stick!
Comments: Great racquet! Just switched from volkl dnx10 mid that is no longer available. I'm an old school serve
and volleyer (43) that plays extensive doubles. Pinpoint precision, and serves are on the money. I look forward to trying a thinner
gauge to generate spin.
Comments: This solid frame is the best for the extra flat, eastern grip in the
forehand but the only trouble is adjusting my two handed backhand but
still sweet racquet does everything well if you supply your own power. I give it a 10 out of 10!
Comments: Be careful before buying! I thought I loved this frame when I started playing because of the buttery feel
and solid plow though, but after about 7 months of play I'm now very frustrated with the tiny sweet spot and unforgiving feel. I
play number 2 varsity singles at a 5A school, and have solid swing mechanics but this racquet still was to much for my small body
Comments: I just demoed this one with 3 other racquets from TW. Will be
putting an order next week for a pair. I currently have a Volkl V-
Engine. The first time I hit with this Babolat it went on the bench
after 5 shots because all 5 shots hit the net. After a few more attempts
later, I got the hang of it. As people say - no power. Once you bring
your own power to it - whew, what a frame! I surprised myself and my
hitting buddy with volleys I was pulling with this thing it's so
stable and maneuverable at net. I also liked serving with it - hard to
miss the box for sure. Control is ridiculously good. Super stable on
returns and at the net, as I mentioned above. I loved returning with
it. I was able to generate good spin with it off the ground. In fact
the spin was fairly effortless unlike the flat drives. I used a dampener in it. The audible pop it makes on flat drives and serves is
absolutely addicting. Has a ton of feel - very soft frame.
Comments: I am returning to tennis after an 18-year layoff. I played competitively up to and into college, and then
left the game completely due to injuries and desire to do something else. Coming back, I looked to several racquets, the best of
which is the Pure Storm GT Ltd. My game used to be significant power but I would often lack control. Within 6 weeks of coming
back, I can see the control this racquet brings. I can hit a hard shot (take a full swing) and put reasonable spin on it and place it
very well - something I recall was difficult to do with the old racquets to 2 decades ago! Serve is strong, easy to place, but lacks a
bit of power (that could be me - 20 yrs older!) Overall, I'm very happy with this racquet. Buy this if you can generate the power and
want more control. If you want more power, you should probably look elsewhere.
Comments: This Limited version is very different from regular Pure Storm. It is SERIOUSLY an underpowered
racquet. It feels great when you put your body weight into the shot, as well as serve, slice and volley. Unfortunately, it is not
helpful when scrambling or stretched.Forget running forehand - wrist flick would not work.
Combination of closed pattern - head light and high flexibility puts great demand of footwork and mobility. Anything less then
full swing with perfect weight transfer produces mediocre shots.
Comments: I demoed this racquet and it has amazing control. I really liked how this racquet improved my
backhand. This racquet does not have very much power, however, so when I order mine, I plan on stringing it very loosely. Overall
a great racquet with lots of control and feel.
Comments: It's has been a big question to me for quite a long time. I have visited the TW Europe website, they are
also selling this racquet. The spec are mostly the same, however, they stated the stiffness to be 63. May I know the actual
stiffness? As I prefer racquets with stiffness below or just above 60.
Comments: Is this racquet scheduled to be playtested? I hear that this is a great frame, but I would like a more
Comments: Superb!! Ive been hitting this racquet for 3 weeks and I feel the difference to my older one.. It helps me
improve my serves, control and volley. It adds kick to my spin. It feels great in my hand!! Fantastic!!
Comments: I have had this racquet for about 4 months now, and I love it. I am a high school player, and I love this
racquet. My backhand improved a ton after I bought this racquet. Also my serves probably got 15-20mph faster because of the
racquet and its power.
Comments: I bought this racket few months back and I liked it very much. I switched to this one from a lighter, 98
sq inch Babolat Aero Storm Cortex, and I could see the difference in my game. This one being bit more heavier and bit smaller
head size, I'm getting very good control and my powerful slice serves are more consistent. This racket helped me improve my two
Comments: I usually play with the Wilson BLX 6.1 Tour and wanted to try something a little more maneuverable...
Although the Storm Ltd is easier to swing I feel like you have to work harder and swing faster because it doesn't have the plow
through or that feel that gets your balls near the baseline consistently. Very low powered and sometimes even when you miss hit
it felling it will go long it still goes in. Pretty good control but not sure this would be a good racket for a baseliner or all court
Comments: Absolutely fantastic! Great racquet, I switched over from my head liquid metal radical and never looked
back. I was looking for a smaller head size with more control and spin, and that's exactly what I got. This racquet has excellent
control, I could place my shots precisely and with authority, AND with plenty of spin on it. This racquet has great plow through
and stability with its heavy weight and small head, so serve returns weren't a problem and I can hit deeply with much control
consistently. The tight string pattern helped with spin and control letting me hit nasty kick serves up the T, and could place shots
from the net with ease. The only thing that I think they could have done better with was the feel, it was pretty good, but gamma
stinger on my head was better, yet, it is still pretty good. Overall this racquet is fantastic, it has given me confidence to hit hard
without sending balls long, and has overall improved my game, Babolat has done a great job with this racquet and I will be buying
from them in the future
Comments: I bought this racquet thinking it would be great. This racquet just does not have enough spin... The
dense string pattern really ruined my game. I couldn't hit an ordinary forehand with it. It would go long.
Comments: I switched from the Babolat Pure Drive. As much as I loved that racquet, I was looking for a racquet
with a little more control and a smaller head size. Demoed a bunch of 95 sq inch string bed racquets and even the Dunlop 90 sq
inch. This one stood out as having the most comfortable feel with its sweet spot and best overall control. It's a super racquet.
After playing with it throughout the summer and in tournaments, I do have a couple of caveats. I think it delivers a little less pop
on the serve than the Babolat Pure Drive and low volleys are even more problematic. The benefit is you can really swing out when
in position and hit short balls with more control and accuracy.
Comments: It took me a couple days to get used to this racquet. Groundstrokes feel really good and have a lot of
pop. If you get used to this racquet the ball magically stays in every stroke you make. Service is one of my favorite strokes with
this racquet. The dense pattern doesn't bite the ball as well but if you get used to it the spin can be deadly. One thing that I have
to argue about is the backhand slice. The slices float and usually don't have much pace. Volley is average.
Comments: This is the best racquet I have ever used. My groundstrokes have way more pop, I have huge kick and
flat serves, and slice like butter.
Comments: I'm in the process of looking for a new racquet, I currently play with a Head iPrestige Mid, and I have
always enjoyed these types of small, hefty players sticks. Having said that, this one misses the mark with me. It has a very solid
feel on groundies, but precision is a must. Volleys are crisp and accurate, but where I found the biggest weakness was hitting
serves with this racquet. Serves, to me, felt dead and came off extremely flat. The string pattern being 18x20 gives decent access
to spin, but for such a hefty stick it is a tad bit unstable on off center hits, more than one might typically expect. The small head
size and heft do give excellent control and great feel, but again, I found the sweet spot, especially for a small head racquet,
lacking. This is worth a demo, but again, don't be surprised if you can't tame this one. Overall, I give it a C+.
Comments: I loved hitting with this racquet. It is very low powered so it's an average need not apply if you don't get
good power. Having said that it is loaded with feel and is very stable along with exceptional control. I would say that hitting
groundies is the best part with the angle I can get with it. Nothing special on serve really and I never go up to net but when I did I
hit them with pinpoint precision. All and all I may very well switch to this.
Comments: Really like my 2 new PS GT Ltd, one strung with Babolat RPM Blast and the other with Alu Power both at
52 lbs. I always enjoyed hit the ball at baseline with own power and yes, this racquet just gives your shot more angle (compared to
my i.prestige L6). Very suitable for one handed backhand:-) You will see how your serves improve, feel the ball staying on the web
and put it wherever you want to.
Comments: Probably the only racquet in the current line of Babolats that I enjoy hitting with. This racquet is low
powered, however if you can generate your own power, you will definitely appreciate the level of control it gives you. It feels very
light when swinging, however the heft is there to provide stability. I highly recommend!
Comments: Loved the racquet. I played with the original ever since it came out, and was all too ready to upgrade. It
might just be me, but it seems like this stick is a little heavier than the first. Took me only 2 days to adapt, and I love it. I'd
recommend this stick to anyone looking for the control of a player's racquet, but not the stiffness of the BLX 95.
Comments: This racquet fits my game perfectly. If you are a strong player who wants to be able to swing out while
still maintaining pinpoint control, look no further. I love to take a full cut at the ball and this racquet allows for that without
sacrificing any control.
I have tweaked with lead tape and various strings but what works best for me is un-leaded, full poly, thin gauge, LOW tension
string job. When I say low I mean right around 42-47 pounds. You will be amazed at how much spin you can generate with this
dense string pattern.
I am coming from Volkl racquets (Tour 10 and C9 Pro) and this racquet is superior in every way. It has a unique blend of heft
(11.9oz strung) while still giving you a head light (9 pts) frame. It also FORCES you to use good form as it will reward you with
amazing control. Get lazy with it, and you will be spraying shots all over the court.
It has improved my form, footwork, and overall game and I can finally say I have found a racquet I will stick with for a long, long
Comments: The Babolat has nice heft to generate power, but it is head light enough to allow you to generate great
racquet speed when you need to whip through the ball on serves and approaches. It is solid on groundstrokes; strong on volleys;
and great on serves (note all the positive comments on serves in the other posts). Maybe it's the flexibility of the frame? In any
case, demo this racquet; you owe it to yourself to try it. On the recommendation of my teaching pro, I replaced my Wilson BLX 6.1
Tour with this racquet earlier this year. I went from an unforgiving, heavy, shoulder-hurting, string-breaking, walnut-sized
sweetspot-having racquet to a much more forgiving and fun to play with frame.
Comments: I had a review here before. After changing string to 52lb, and two months into playing, I can confirm
that this is the best stick out of my previous dozen of different brands for 3 reasons:
Comments: Using a full Luxilon ALU setup at lower tensions, the racquet is actually not as soft as what others (and
the stiffness rating) makes it. It filters out most of the higher frequency vibrations, which you can call "soft" in a way, but you still
feel much of the ball impact shock compared to my Wilson KF Tour 90. You feel it after a while on the wrist. It feels very similar to
the older Pure Storm but with less higher frequency vibrations. The balance and weight is nice. More power than a MG Prestige but
less than a Bab. Pure Drive or aero pro drive. The spin is adequate but less than my Tour 90.
Comments: A brilliant racquet that feels very different from other Babolat racquets like the aero pro series. I am a
counter puncher and tend to hit flatter shots. This racquet when strung
with poly strings like pro hurricane gave power and absolute control (I even strung it below
recommended tension). After changing to co polyesters it provided me with great feel on
volleys and sufficient topspin for groundstrokes. for service, it is one racquet that you will be
able to hit great kickers with thanks to the dense string pattern. The weight is manageable.
Comments: ONE word Awesome! This racquet is such a great racquet I went out and purchased three. This racquet
is very control oriented. I love the feel and control this racket had. I am a competitive junior and I just made the switch to this! If
you can supply your own power this is your racquet!!!
Comments: Great stick for the control oriented player, who relies on his own power. This is definitely not a tweener
frame compared to the pure drive series. If you want a blend of power and control, demo the Pure Storm Tour GT because the Ltd.
stick is meant for control and not power. There are some people who say this stick is too weak, but for my style it is perfect
because I like to hit a heavy ball with a lot of pace. The racquet feels stable on serves and it is harder to generate power, however I
could direct the ball anywhere I want. On volleys it was a joy to hit with as it felt solid especially on touch shots. On my FH side it
was a joy to hit with as I could flatten out the ball easily because of the dense 18x20 string pattern and also to my surprise it
wasn't difficult to produce topspin with the LTD. However on my BH it was a little harder to produce spin, but had no problem
hitting flat. Overall this racquet is a great racquet that has pretty good feel, has great control, and is definitely meant for players
who produce their own power because the racquet will not provide the power for them.
Comments: Played the PS Tour 98 for almost 2 years. Lost lots of pop because of the swingweight especially
coming from the PD before that. PS Tour GT is the perfect mix, a little more headlight but overall weight is a tad under 12oz. Very
solid on volleys and lots of control on the groundies. The nice thing about this stick is that if you wanna open up the shoulders
and rip it, it will respond as well. 18x20 string pattern is not an issue if you are worried about spin. I've got one laced up with
Revenge 16 and another with 17. Virtually no difference in playability. I prefer the 16 actually. Very satisfied with this stick.
Balance and feel remind me of the PS Original 85 from back in the day without the heft of course.
Comments: I bought one after reading all the great comments here. At first try, it feel no power at all, I had
difficulty to deliver the ball to base line. Compare to an old stick, (Head i prestige L6) this one need a much swifter swing to
generate the depth. Will try to reduce the tension and see how it improves.
Comments: I'm a hard hitting base liner and used to play with the Wilson K6.1 95 (16x18)and this stick eventually
led me to tennis elbow and a sore wrist. I bought the Wilson stick for the purpose of control, but once I started playing that
racquet, it was too powerful, unstable and very stiff. It didn't have good feel and there was no comfort at all. So I sold it and
bought a PS Ltd GT and now I am very happy with this stick. The PS Ltd GT has good feel, good control, and I can hit a very heavy
ball that really penetrates the court. Since this stick has plenty of control, I can rip ball cross court, down the line, and I don't have
to worry about the ball going out. I was worried about the lack of spin, but the 18x20 string pattern still gave me plenty of spin
and since I'm a string breaker, this pattern helped me avoid buying new strings. I've used tweener frames such as the PDR or the
APD, and loved the stiff feel, but not anymore because I've realized that having a soft, flexy feel can really make Tennis more
Comments: Almost no power with this racquet. I recommend this for a very strong player with intense racquet head
speed. If you hit with a western grip don't buy it, no power at all.
Comments: Well, I've tried almost every big name frame out there, and I've settled on this
stick. It's extremely solid from all aspects. Feels crisp yet soft at the same time. Huge improvement over the old ltd. in my opinion.
I'm really able to feel the ball well. But definitely demo this before buying it since it is a player's frame. At first when I tried this I
wouldn't even play with it in tournaments, because it was so demanding and felt so strange in my hand. Now, I won't play a match
without it. Heaven in my hand. Great job, Babolat!
Comments: I demoed this racquet after playing with the k6.1 and kblade 98. Feels great. Incredibly solid. You have
to swing hard to get pace. It's very solid for volleys. It's an all around great racquet and so solid on the baseline and net.
Comments: What a great racquet! Definitely a more control-oriented stick, but I'm still surprised that you can still
generate a great deal of spin with the 18x20 string pattern. I currently have one strung up with MSV Focus Hex 18L (1.10 mm)
and Gosen OG Sheep in the crosses. It feels great! I'm coming from the Prestige Classic 600 and I think I've finally found it's
replacement. I'm surprised how well this thing serves, even with the tight string pattern. Babolat's grips tend to run slightly
bigger than Head's -- just FYI.
Comments: Amazing feel. I purchased this racket after demoing the previous version of it for a week. Amazing feel
and flexibility with pin point accuracy on ground strokes and servers. Volleys are perfect. I have NXT Tour 18 on it. If you hit
through the ball, it produces wonders. Flat strokes are great especially return of serves. If you are below 4.0 NTRP, forget about
using this racket.
Comments: Read all of the above reviews and decided to purchase this racquet - It feels excellent! Plenty of control
with power when needed. The 18x20 string pattern is great for my control, for I hit with a full swing. I can truly "hit out" and not
worry, the spin and slice are are just as nice as the topspin.
Comments: The Pure Storm Ltd. is the best racquet I've ever hit with. Very solid and nice feel
from baseline. Very maneuverable at net gives a good punch. Serves are amazing! All around
amazing solid stick.
Comments: I used to hit with the older Babolat pure storm ltd, microgel prestige pro 98, and the k pro staff 88. But
this racquet has to be by far the most amazing racquet for me, I've been able to get my serves up to 98 and almost 100mph. All
my volleys now land exactly where I want them to, the touch is amazing. And with this racquet no matter how hard you let it rip
the ball will stay in the court. It adds just the slight bit of control that lets you generate as much power as you want and the
topspin will come almost naturally. I've also got to say the revenge strings have now become my all time favorite, it balances the
control of the pure storm with just the right amount of power and it feels really smooth, strung to a tension of 60, the pure storm
ltd gt + Babolats revenge string 16 gauge lives up to the title of the "perfect storm".
Comments: Just demoed this racket and love it! I went ahead and bought a couple of them but suddenly realized
that it will take a few weeks to really get use to it and compete with them. A few weeks later I have no regrets. This racket keeps
you honest with your form and timing, which you should do. I found the perfect tension, which is lower for me with a poly and it
just has the most solid feel to it. Just wonderful and I'm loving the game again. This is very much a players racket and maybe
suited for someone 4.0 and up. Try it out and give this stick a chance.
Comments: I have been hitting with this racquet for few weeks now. Originally played with the older version of this.
Love the new frame, tons of feel and control, great on serve and better you are the better it responds. I would recommended for
4.0 + players IMO.
Comments: Excellent control racquet with very good pop provided you have a long full stroke. Don't let the 18x20
string pattern concern you as this racquet provides great topspin and slice. Very stable and able to handle the pace of heavy
topspin ground strokes without twisting. I was able to get extra kick on my topspin serve and real bite on the slice out wide.
Crisp volleys with a slightly muted feel, was able to adapt quickly. Good weight and balance.
Comments: I have been using the original Ltd. for six mos. and I have been very pleased with its all around
performance. The new GT is another excellent frame, however, it feels a bit heavier and it is an even more demanding player's
racquet. In short I will offer that the new GT seems to compress the ball more and allows you to hit a heavier ball on offense,
however, I found that I was having to give up ground on the defensive side. When you need to react quickly because you have
been forced out of position in a rally the GT will not allow you to neutralize the point as easily as the original will. I also found that
it takes more effort to produce a strong kick serve which takes its toll over a multi set match.
Comments: The new pure storm gt is maybe the best Babolat yet for control and power the balance is great on it.
Especially if you get the revenge strings you get tons of spin on it and power with them it's just a great racquet.
Comments: Small sweetspot. Amazing on serve. Decent spin. Tons of control. Volleys were crisp.
Comments: I have been hitting with this racquet for a week now, and I think it feels pretty good. Very solid on
ground strokes, and it feels right at home at the net. It feels more stable at net than the Pure Storm Ltd., which is nice. This is
definitely a racquet that I have to concentrate on my shots with. When I am hitting good, it's really good, but if I'm off, fugget'a
bout it. Balls start to spray all over. This is a "bring your own power" stick, which is what I like, but this racquet needs to be played
at 100% all the time. The 18x20 string pattern felt very consistent, it has a nice controlled feel to it. All in all I like the racquet,
when I am fresh it feels great, when I start to get tired, it is a little above my ability.
