Babolat Pure Aero Racquet Review

Babolat gives the legendary AeroPro Drive a big makeover, starting with the name. This version is called the Pure Aero and 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.

Hi TW! Sorry for my english. I’ll going to buy a racket, but I do not know which one. I was thinking between Babolat PureAero and Wilson Ultra 100. I am 16 years old, this racquts will be heavy for me? What’s better and what’s the difference between these 2?

Nick Bradley says:

Is this racquet any good for people looking for more spin and power

Marc says:

Hi TW, I was wondering which racquet to go with as I’m an intermediate, 15 year old tennis player, coming from an old dunlop biomimetic. I loved the feel of that racquet, but as I’m now older and stronger, the racquet feels weak and flat. I was thinking maybe a Pure Aero, Ultra 100, or a Pro Staff 97. What do you recommend?

quitter97 says:

I’ve used the ‘pure drive’ line since around 2007, my latest go to racquet for the past years having been the pure drive gt +.
I play a very baseline oriented game with lots of spin and a very heavy forehand and serve, so the gt+ has served me really well when i hammer those forehands in etc. but lately i’ve been more and more tempted to get this one, but i was wondering how different it would feel compared to somewhat outdated models of the pure drive that i’ve used?

Tobias Christensen says:
