As I enjoy writing reviews, I figured it would be fitting to write one about the stick that I've switched to recently: the Aero Storm GT. I had a long demo period and this racquet came out on top, followed closely by the BLX Blade 98. So, without further ado, is the review! Forehands: My forehand is not my better shot by any means. As background, I like to mix in heavy spin with my normal shot, which has enough topspin to add margin and kick off the court. I do tend to hit through it more often than not, though. This racquet adapts easily to the varying levels of spin I hit. The string pattern has enough spacing to bite into the ball, but it still offers nice control. Now, the ASGT is by no means a pure control stick-there is some pop, which I find useful in defensive positions. My favorite forehand to hit with this racquet is a crosscourt pass. The ball looks like it's going to sail out, but dips in at the last second. Running forehands are great as well, because I can hit out without fear of errors. It's a great forehand frame! Backhands: As you may have guessed, my backhand is my main weapon. I hit two hands on that wing, and I like to use it to control the point. I find that this racquet allows great control on backhands-it seems like I can't miss with this frame. However, it does supply a bit of additional pop, which is useful when going for a winner or trying to set up a short ball. The spin potential is very high, which is useful for passing shots. It's manoevurable enough for me to get around to flick a backhand when I'm stretched out wide. I also find plenty of control and feel on backhand lobs. Edit: I would like to add one detail. If I do not properly load on a backhand when I want to hit it flatter, the ball will go out. The extra pop of this racquet means that I have to focus on my technique if I want to hit out. However, if I hit it right, the ball comes in with a lot of pace. Slice: Like topspin groundstrokes, this racquet offers plenty of spin on slices. Backhand slices can be floated deep, or they can be sent as low skidders. Forehands are much the same, but I notice that I can use my forehand slice a lot better when I'm pushed into a defensive position because the ball has much more bite. This racquet also offers nice feel and touch on angled slices or drop shots. Edit: I'd like to make one more addition: this racquet allows me to have very good directional control as well as depth control over slices. Floaters and skidders alike can be sent to the baseline, and I find that slicing crosscourt during a rally is much easier with this frame. The racquet really bites into the ball, giving slices a lot of spin, so I can focus on placement instead. Volleys: The light weight of this racquet makes it a willing partner up at net. While it is in the sub-11.5 ounce range, it has the stability of a much heavier racquet. This makes volleys in defensive positions much easier to execute. This solidity also makes offensive volleys sting a bit more, and there is lots of feel to be found. Touch volleys are similar to my RDX 500 in the respect that there's a very noticeable pocketing feel, which allows for great touch. It also makes hitting volleys fun! Serves: I was really impressed when I served with this racquet. It offered good placement as well as lots of bite on serves hit with topspin or slice. I was also able to move the ball around the box very well. I did find some extra pop on second serves, which was a great benefit. However, it was still very controllable and nowhere near being excessive. Overall, it's a solid serving stick. Serve returns: Like volleys, serve returns are very solid. I find it to be very stable, and when that is combined with a low static weight, you have a very fast, but rock solid return racquet. It's easy enough to get into position and block a return, or take a full rip at the ball. I could even hit drop shot winners off the serve! Overall, the Aero Storm GT is the perfect racquet for me. If I had to describe it in one sentence, I'd say it has the stability of a heavier frame while still feeling fast. I hope you enjoyed the review, and happy hitting!
