Babolat introduces a special French Open edition of the AeroPro Drive, our most popular racquet. This one has the same specs as the standard AeroPro Drive but it comes with a sleek French Open cosmetic. Like the standard AeroPro Drive, this one is dangerous in the hands of aggressive baseliners. The fast feel conjures up images of Rafael Nadal who has played with multiple generations of the AeroPro Drive. Updated with Active Cortex technology, the feel is slightly smoother than prior versions, which is a nice bonus given the stiff layup. On court our playtesters noted the same phenomenal blend of maneuverability and stability that has come to define the AeroPro line. From the baseline this one explodes very easily through contact, allowing topspin players to create a heavy ball with an expanded range of angles and trajectories. On serves the fast feel and lively response makes for easy power and spin - both of which are aided by the stiff beam and open string pattern. At net the maneuverability is great for fast exchanges, while the stability provides a plush platform against pace. Even more impressive is the range of ability levels this racquet suits. From the 3.5 NTRP level to the professional ranks, the AeroPro Drive French Open offers truly exceptional playability.

Note: Due to racquet stiffness, when stringing with a polyester or a co-polyester we highly suggest 54lbs as a starting point for tension.
