    Is there a real significant difference bw these two racquets?

    AeroPro Drive:
    Head Size:
    100 sq. in. / 645.16 sq. cm.
    Length: 27in / 68.58cm
    Strung Weight: 11.3oz / 320.35g
    Balance: 4 pts HL
    Swingweight: 316
    Stiffness: 69

    Aero Storm GT
    Head Size:
    98 sq. in. / 632.26 sq. cm.
    Length: 27 inches / 68.58 cm
    Strung Weight: 11.4oz / 323.18g
    Balance: 3 pts HL
    Swingweight: 334
    Stiffness: 67

    Weight is about the same, stifness also, balance...

    Did anyone already tried the two? Do they target different type of players?

    Thanks.

    I tried both for several months and went with the Aero Storm GT. I found the ASGT to have a little less power than the Aero Pro due to the ASGT being a little more flexible. But, what the ASGT gives up in power is more than made up for with better control due to the 16x20 string pattern. I also like the ASGT better at net where its higher swingweight helps on volleys. A little lead at 3 and 9 and a leather grip, or some silicone in the handle, and you are good to go. BTW, Babolat no longer makes the ASGT so as time goes on they will become more difficult to find.

    I played with the Aero Storm for a while... Nice frame. I think beam width is a factor when comparing these two frames. As far as personal experience goes, the Aero Storm is a better control frame, especially with PSG 16 at 58lbs. That was before I made the switch to poly.
