I just got a couple of these, switched the base grip to leather and put on an over grip to make it a little heavier and a little more head light. So far I love it.. I've been playing with pure storm tour gts (with leather grips so theyll be a little heavier and more head light) for the past couple years. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to stick with them or switch over to the gamma sticks.. The weight and balance are the exact same on both of them and the stiffness feels about the same too.. The thing that's getting me to lean toward gamma is that they seem to have a slightly more solid feeling than the babolats on slightly off center shots which I noticed the most while volleying.. I never thought I'd find a racquet that felt as good or better than my storm tours (especially from gamma..hah) but after a little more testing these 98ts might be taking their place in my bag..
