Now in a sharp new cosmetic, the 2011 Babolat Pure Storm GT remains a players racquet with solid, stable, comfortable feel, now with GT (Graphite Tungsten) technology adding a hybrid of braided carbon fibers and tungsten filaments throughout the entire racquet. Tungsten strengthens the frame to reduce torque for greater precision (Babolat claims more precision and additional energy recovery compared to the previous generation Pure Storm). Designed for a more-advanced player with a longer, faster swing. Very evenly balanced feel lends itself to being a versatile racquet, working well both at the net and the baseline. Specifications are the same as previous generation Pure Storm GT. Slightly lighter than the Pure Storm Tour GT.

Review Summary (Based on 1 Reviews)
Very stable for a lightweight frame. I strung it with a co-poly at the bottom of the tension range and was able to hit with crazy spin. With a little lead added around the hoop, this frame serves bombs. 5 stars!
