TENNIS.com Review
By Bill Gray and Bruce Levine on May 20, 2010

The most obvious change in this year’s Aero Storm Tour is a cosmetic switch from the red, black and white color combo to the bumblebee graphics of the AeroPro Drive. It’s a slick marketing move that will give the Aero family a consistent look for TV cameras, whether it’s the Storm Tour in Dinara Safina’s hands or the AeroPro Drive GT used by Rafael Nadal. But after this superficial likeness, the Aero Storm Tour and AeroPro Drive part company. The Storm Tour is a lot heavier and has a smaller head, making it better for volleys. But it also takes a lot more muscle to swing and generate pace on ground strokes. Stability is enhanced by Babolat’s GT technology, graphite and tungsten throughout the frame, with extra tungsten fibers inside the hoop at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions, to prevent twisting on off-center hits. Babolat also makes a hybrid version of the Aero Storm Tour, the Aero Storm, for less accomplished players.

Bottom Line: Best for fit and furious all-courters with tournament-level skills.
