    1. What are the grips like in terms of shape? I've been playing with Prince - a more roundish grip compared to Head or Dunlop.

    2. Has anyone hit with the new Pure Storm Tour? The specs look fantastic, but I'll have to wait a while to demo, so just wanted some feed back.

    Thanks

    The grips are closer to Wilson. Babolat grip sizes also run about a half size large.

    I created this thread last week with some minor impressions of the standard edition of the Storm TOUR. http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=150046

    Hi Bluetrain4, i think if you liked the Pure Control MP 98, you will like this new Pure Storm Tour. In my opinion, Babolat re-painted the Pure Control and make it new Pure Storm Tour. I've tried both the Pure Storm Tour and its plus version, and i decided to keep the Pure Storm Tour Plus. But trust me this, when you play with new 2007 stick, you will play pretty well because of the feeling of holding new one in your hands. Anyone who buy new racquets always have this feeling, right?

    babolat grips are bigger than most others, so order it 1 size smaller than usual.
