Babolat AeroStorm Tour
Released September, 2009
The Pros:Feel is solid and comfortable, doesn't strain the wrist or shoulder. Plenty of power generation for fast returns and great serves. Good control over the ball, goes right where you want it.
The Cons:Sweet-spot is fairly small, need to make sure you hit just right. A bit heavier than most rackets in the range.
The Babolat AeroStorm Tour is a premier tennis racquet built for professionals at the 4.5+ level. It is an exact duplicate of the original AeroStorm, except that it is heavier and therefore built for advanced-level power hitters.

Like its predecessor, it combines an AeroPro beam-design in the throat with a PureStorm beam-design in the hoop, allowing for superior control, feel, maneuverability. Included also is Babolat’s Cortex System, which filters harmful vibrations created during ball impact—therefore resulting in a more dampened and comfortable feel when hitting the ball. The AeroStorm Tour also relies on Babolat’s patented Woofer, which increases frame/string interaction during ball strike, therefore adding 25% more contact time between the ball and strings AND allowing for a greater generation of power, control, and spin. Two famous professional players who use the Babolat AeroPro Drive include Dinara Safina and Nadia Petrova.
