    I bought two Babolat Aeropro Cortex GT, and lent it to my friend to play with one as he crack one of his racket during our game.

    So that he could decide what to get next, but he keep saying that my racquet is too powerful and wanting a lower power racquet.

    Whats else is there on the market that is well know and have very low power other the Federer line of racquet.

    But alos looking for something around 98 sq inch..

    Any recomendation would be welcome
    cheers

    Babolat Pure Storm GT limited - very under powered. Great stick!

    Agree with the Babolat Pure Storm GT LTD. You need to swing like a banshee with that one.

    Since your already familiar with the Babolat line I'd also advise the Pure Storm. If you wanted to try some other low power racquets in other lines I'd go for the Pro kennex G5. Most anything with a low flex rating like the pure Storm is going to be low powered.

    You want low powered? Yonex Vcore Tour 97... Guaranteed to be low powered.

    Exo3 tour 18x20. Put some weight in the handle and it feels really dead.

    Dunlop Bio 200 would be my choice. Its really a control racquet.

    no one has mentioned strings yet. string the racquet tighter, you'll get less power.

    thanks for all the feedback guys.. awesome.. I like to stick to babolat... Pure Storm is getting a big nod.. but there is no official tennis review on that one that been mention here.

    Will try it out at the local shop ... ta.


    but if stringing at 65 pbs.. will it ruin the feel of the racket?
