    I don't know if anyone has asked this before, but T-W has stopped selling the Aero Storm. Did Babolat stop making it or did T-W just accidentally take it off?

    I actually read (I don't remember which magazine) that they were making a more lighter one and a heavier one. Maybe I read the article wrong. All I know is that they better be the same because I already have one and would like to get another if not two more racquets. It would if they changed it. I also wonder why they decided to make new versions. I like it just the way is now. I mean with the lighter version I think it will just be a now colorway for the aeropro.

    The new Tour version will be the same as the regular Aero Storm from last year. The new regular Aero Strom will be lighter. It will definitely cause some confusion as the new Aero Storm will look just like the old one but lighter in weight.

    Sort of. But i think the Lighter AeroStorm will be the "Aero-Modified" version of the regular Pure Storm.

    The concept is the same as the APDC, as it is a "Aero-modified" version of the Pure Drive series.

    It should end up being a subtle but nice change. I have both the PST and the older AS. The AS is a beast to swing with that 340 SW. The PST has an SW of around 333g which is much easier to wield.

    As regards the AS versus the APDC, they really are very different. I've got my APDC leaded to 335g but it's nowhere near as stable as the AS. Both really nice sticks both very different. I prefer the AS for hard court and the APDC for clay.

    I would just like to be able to get two more and not feel the difference between (I guess mine is the older model) the new one and the one I currently use.

    I guess the fact that they decided to trade names is the only thins that confused people. The only thing I probably won't like on my next racquet is the fact that it says tour.
