    I demoed it and and really liked it, nice solid feel with good control.One of the better frames I've hit with lately.

    Just hit with it today and the Storm GT is more solid than the prior Non-GT version. It's been a while but I would say it felt like the old Wilson Pro staff 85 in solid feel. The 85 definately had more control though but not as much pace(cant swing as fast as I used too). Definatly more solid than the PURE drive GT too. Pure Drive had more pop and a little better spin. Head synthetics used with the PStorm GT and NRG in the PD GT.

    I like it better than the PURE Drive GT

    Not a fan... tried it and found it hard to snap the wrist on serves becuase of the balance of the frame. Decent pop but unimpressed with the feel of the racquet. Have not tried PS GT Tour version or the Ltd GT version- only PS GT.

    hey is it one set? or one reel? cuz one set would be not good but a reel, the deal will be alright since babolat strings are quite pricey
