    I saw it in the local pro shop today. They had like, 6. Looks nice.

    I picked it up. It seems to have a slightly smaller head than the aeropro drive. The pickup weight is slightly heavier too.

    One of them is strung, for demos I assume.

  10. I demo'd one for a few days...Wasn't terribly impressed. Just felt a little odd swinging, though I didn't have it tuned the way I like it.

    Anyone else hit with this frame a little more? I think the specs are pretty sweet. Haven't found a Babolat that I like yet.

    I've hit with the Aero Storm for almost a week now and so far I like it.  I was about to purchase the pure storm team, but since the new Babolats showed up, I figured I would wait.  The aero storm has a generous sweetspot and is very stable, however, there's less power and the response is much more muted than the pure storm or my previous racquet, Head Prestige 300 MP. I typically use a vibration dampener, but there's no need for one in the aero storm (probably b/c of the cortex). I've played my best with this racquet when I'm hitting hard and with lots of spin. I've never hit kick serves as well as I do with the aero storm. Mine is strung with Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 17 @ 55lbs which brought the racquet up to 11.90 oz. The weight feels great on groundstrokes and serves, yet the racquet still feels maneuverable at net (something that I really liked in the pure storm and is maintained in the aero storm).
