After all this time hearing about them, seeing players around using them, getting beaten by opponents using Pure Drives, I decided to join the dark side and try a Babolat racquet. The Pure Storm GT. I've been searching for a low-powered, comfortable, maneuverable while still being a ''player's racquet'' for a long time. Went from Wilson 6.1 95, Prestige MP, Wilson 6.1 Team, Youtek Radical Pro... But there was always something missing. Too stiff, too lively, too heavy, not enough plowthrough... I didn't play yet, just hit some serves earlier. But wow... The kick I got from this racquet was unbelievable. Balls were jumping 4-5 feet in the fence without too much of an effort. And even strung with a poly, the frame was very comfortable. And more importantly, I got the feeling I always thought I would have using a Babolat: Tennis seems easy. Can't wait to try it in match play. I've added 12 grams in the handle so it's now 6 pts HL, and it feels great.
