    Noted on the TW Home page, under the racquets section... the Babolat Pure Storm Tour RA (Stiffness) is noted as: 63 and String Tension 50-62... is that correct?

    FYI... My PST shows RA 68 and tension 55-62. :confused:

    Tennis Warehouse specifications are actually measured. It is supposedly an average of 5 frames that were measured on that big Babolat machine.

    The specs printed on the frame are what Babolat meant for the racket to be, but loose tolerances allow big variances. That (as well as calibration) explains the TW measured specs.
