PERFORMANCE RACQUETS

Babolat Pure Aero Image

Babolat Pure Aero RRP $275

Used by Pro’s: Rafael Nadal; Fernando Verdasco; Sam Querrey; Benoit Paire; Eugenie Bouchard; Caroline Wozniacki; Sara Errani; Francesca Schiavoni

Babolat gives the legendary AeroPro Drive a big makeover, starting with the name. This version is called the Pure Aeroand it boasts a more aerodynamic beam along with a higher swingweight. The result is a racquet that trades a little bit of maneuverability for some ball crushing momentum and a welcomed boost in stability, plow-through and comfort. There?s also some serious power to be had for those who can swing this stick fast. Armed with FSI Spin Technology the Pure Aero features wider spacing between the crosses for increased ball bite (see big spin). Babolat has also enlarged some of the grommet holes, allowing the strings to absorb more vibration and snap the ball out of the stringbed with extra RPMs (see even bigger spin). Although this update has a speedy 11.3 ounce static weight, it swings a tad heavier than its predecessor from the backcourt. The added heft not only helps keep the racquet steadier through impact, it also produces a lethal combination of pace and spin on full swings. At net the Pure Aero feels solid, accurate and lively, and it has more than enough put-away power for ending points with authority. Babolat has made some impressive tweaks to one of the game?s iconic player?s racquets. The combination of spin and pop should prove very dangerous in the right hands. The extra plow-through and comfort is a very nice bonus.

One of the game’s most versatile and popular racquets gets updated with a more responsive contact zone. Like its predecessor, this version of the Pure Drive offers the kind of power, precision and mobility that should appeal to everyone from strong beginners to the professional ranks. Although it compliments a truly impressive range of playing styles, the Pure Drive reserves its greatest charm for aggressive baseliners who like to dictate action with pace and spin. New to this version is FSI Technology. This feature not only lifts the sweetspot but also tightens the spaces between the upper cross strings to give players a more responsive contact zone. From the baseline the Pure Drive delivers a lethal combination of power and spin. The fast feel and predictable response on full swings lend themselves perfectly to the powerful angular whip of the modern forehand. At net the Pure Drive’s speed and put-away power make it a true weapon for aggressive doubles players, a fact not lost on the many ATP and WTA players who have used the Pure Drive. Ultimately this update is a fine addition to one of the game’s most versatile and user-friendly player’s racquets.
