    Curious on the AeroStorm and its power potential. On the Babolat website it claims that it is the most control oriented frame they have, but the specs seem to show something completely different. I am curious how the power compares to the Pure Storm, Pure Drive and Pure Storm Tour.

    haven't hit with aero storm but i seriously doubt that's the most control oriented racket, that would be the pure storm limited.

    I currently play with the Pure Storm and like it better than the Aerostorm. I had a chance to demo the Aerostorm but did not came away impressed. You do have to generate your own power so this is a control oriented stick. Volleys are decent. The spin potential of the Aerostorm is more than the Pure Storm. Overall, I enjoyed hitting with the Pure Storm better.

    I would agree that is should be the Limited that is the most control oriented. They don't have the limited listed on their website which seems weird though and they only have the Aero Storm and not the Aero Storm 2008

    You mention you play with the Pure Storm. Have you ever played with the Pure Storm Team? The version before this Pure Storm. Also did you hit with the Aero Storm 2008 or Aero Storm Tour?

    I used to have the PST. I wasn't a huge fan of it. I switched to the Pure Drive and now use the RQiS 1. The PST was lacking something that I could never quite put my finger on...


    Cheers,

    Tim

    I like the PST but what having problems as well. Seems I couldn't find my backhand with it which is my best shot. How would you compare the Pure Drive to the PST? Especially as far as power

    Thanks for the info. I anxiously got my AeroStorm demo yesteday and it was cracked so will have to wait to get a another one. I did hit with the Pure Drive Cortex and liked the power potential, but it seemed way to bulky to me. Not heavy, but like I was swing a baseball bat or something. It was amazing on serve though.

    I am real curious to try the AeroStorm though.

    Hi,

    what converted you from Pure Drive to RQis - very relevant to my new request posted just now?
