Has anyone tried both of these? I'm wearing the older Gel Res and would like to save some money on the next pair if it makes sense.

Let me know if you have, thanks!

If you mean the older model challenger and not the 7, get it. I've had both and I like the Challenger more. It was more comfortable to me. Everything else was the same. Looking back though the Challangers lasted a bit longer before I went through the outsole.

I've tried both shoes and currently own a couple of pairs of the white w/red Challengers that TW sells. I personally like the challenger's better as they seem to hold up better and are great for both hard court & clay.
