Intermediate and advanced players looking to put a little more weight behind their shots should like the Pure Aero Tour, the heaviest member of the Pure Aero family. At nearly 12 ounces, this racquet combines the plow-through and stability of a traditional player’s racquet with the speed and pop required for the modern power game. Thanks to the head light balance and aerodynamic beam, this stick comes with a wonderfully fast and whippy feel, making it perfect for those who want the benefits of a heavier racquet without losing the easy acceleration crucial to spin and pace. The Pure Aero Tour also comes with Babolat’s FSI Spin Technology which features wider spacing between the crosses for a tighter grip on the ball (think spin). As with the other members of the Pure Aero line, this stick has a heavier, more substantial bumper & grommet system. The extra bumper material not only provides a cover for the woofer system, but it adds some welcomed torsional stability in the head. From the baseline this racquet feels solid, lively and very accurate on groundies. Aggressive players should find it easy to drive the ball powerfully through the court with this one. There’s also plenty of spin to be had thanks to the fast feel and open string pattern. At net the Pure Aero Tour doesn’t get pushed around, making it great for redirecting heavy pace. Aggressive servers who can get this stick moving fast will be rewarded with lethal power and plenty of free points. With this Tour version of the Pure Aero, Babolat has produced a formidable weapon for intermediate and advanced players.
