    GT feels stiffer and more powerful.

    I prefer the non GT version 110 % over the GT version. The Non-GT has much more raw feel. Like a sportscar. The feeling in the GT is much stiffer.

    But,, all i talk to who have tested both prefer the new GT version, but i still stick to the non GT frames

    Prefer the non-GT because it is less stiff. I can feel where I hit the ball more using the non-GT over the GT versions.

    Prefer the GT version because it has more power. Plus my previous racquet was a KPS 88 which was stiffer so to me, it's softer than my previous racquet. I found the non GT version too soft and lack power compared to the GT one.

    thx for the replies.

    im askin me now what are the actual flexes of the frames. i mean i bought a gt version. tw says gt = 61 stiffnes but when my racket came there was a picture with gonzo+stosur where i read 69 stiffnes. thats a pretty big difference.

    anyone knows the flex pure storm tour gt + non gt?

    also which racket is closer to the pure control swirly?

    I would think the older version, non-GT.

    no the pure control was stiff. the gt would be closer. the non gt feels very soft

    ok thx for the replies

    so all in all could u tell me (roughly) the stiffnes of these frames?

    i understood gt = stiffer but how stiff exactly?
    in the mid 60 range for gt and mid 50 for non gt?

    Not that big a difference. I'd say the GT feels about 3 points stiffer.
