The Babolat Aero Storm GT (Graphite Tungsten) updates the Aero Storm by 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 26% more precision compared to the previous Aero Storm). Babolat continues to utilize the Cortex vibration filter at the top of the handle. Cortex is used in several of Babolat's players racquets to enhance feel by cancelling only the 2 highest vibration frequencies. Only those frequencies that enhance feel are permitted to pass through the Cortex filter.

The Aero Storm GT is ideal for intermediate to advanced players looking for control in a thinner, more flexible beam. Offers excellent spin generation and feel for the player who already generates most of their own power. Lighter weight option to the Aero Storm GT.
