    I am a 4.0 player and I am about to purchase a new stick. Currently, I've been played with Babolat Aeropro Drive Cortex. I tried to put lead tape on them and all that. I am kinda sick of this sticks. Long time ago, I had a chance to hit the ball with Pure Storm and it felt perfect to me for some reason.

    Now I dont know what to get between Babolat Aero Storm Tour vs. Pure Storm Tour. I gotta try to demo Aero Storm Tour but I would like to hear your suggestion first.

    Please you folks advise me how these sticks are different.

    if u want more comfort, go for the pure storm tour. it is less stiff.
    also,the pure storm tour has more old school feel than the aero storm.

    the aero is not a successor to the pure storm. they are totally different. aero storm is more like other Babolat rackets, the toys-like and huge throat.

    That explains why I like hitting with the PST. I couldn't place my finger on it; but it reminds me of Prince Lighting CTS.

    i have both racquest.
    PST has been my main stick for the last 10 months or so.
    i like it so much i have 3 of them in my bag.

    bought a AST in Taiwan when i was there cause the price was too good to pass. and no, it's not a fake Babolat.

    tennishand is correct.
    PST is much softer and comfy, with that old-school feel many likes. when u prepared just right and rip a perfect groundie, it feels beautiful.

    AST is also a great racquet, stiffer, and a little less power.
    also feels like the weight is more on the throat of the racquet.

    if you have not yet, demo both and play sets to see which one you prefer.

    Wow I had a Prince Lightning CTS and tried a ton of rackets before I fell in love with a Pure Storm. Dennis Kudla played with an old POG before switching recently to a PST. I think it may have to do with the relatively balanced balance, BWDIK.

    Aero storm tour got more power and spin but wasn't super forgiving on off center hits. pure storm tour was very comfortable got decent spin and control I just had to work a little harder to get power. I did prefer the aero storm though because I felt it swung better on serve otherwise it's 50/50
