The Pure Aero has Decent Mobility and Handling
The Pure Aero is actually quite easy to handle and maneuver despite the large frame and head size. Because it is lightweight and aerodynamic, it is still a good racquet for doubles players who play both from the baseline and net.
Subsequently, is Pure Aero head heavy?
The Pure Aero felt a lot more head heavy than I’m used to, which gave me more power and spin on my shots. On the negative side, I struggled with the Pure Aero’s swingweight and maneuverability when I caught the ball late or was off balance.”
Furthermore, is there a new Babolat Pure Aero?
The new Babolat Pure Aero, increased stability and feel for improved performance.
Is Babolat Pure aero arm friendly?
As with the 2015 Pure Aero, Babolat refined the grommets, and bumper guard for less wind drag and more racquet head speed. This year’s Pure Aero incorporates Babolat’s Cortex Pure Feel to make the response a little more arm friendly at contact.
So what is new with the new Babolat Pure Aero? Well, the main thing they have changed is that they have made the frame construction slightly less stiff. What used to be an RA of 72 on the old version is now a strung stiffness of 67.
It played optimally for about 8 or 9 hours which is actually a bit better than most Polys I’ve used. You’re probably not going to break this string regularly but if you do it’s probably breaking well after the playability has dropped off.
Babolat Pure Drive is made of graphite and weighs 11.2 ounces strung (318 g.) making it middle of the road among other top racquets. With a 100 square inch head, there is a larger sweet spot making it a great option for all skill levels.
Nadal: Rafael Nadal uses the Babolat Pure Aero racquet to power his way through tournaments. Off the shelf, this racquet costs $230.
Federer, for what it’s worth, is using a racket that weighs in north of 12.5 ounces — far too heavy for the average club-level player or even high-level junior for that matter.
