With its extra length (an added half-inch over the standard) the AeroPro Drive Plus GT takes the spin and power of the regular version and kicks it up a notch. There's more power and spin to be had from all areas of the court thanks to increased tip speed from the longer beam. Players will have to be a tad stronger to wield this version as the increased length bumps up the swingweight. At net the racquet offers some impressive pop with a crisp and clean feel. Targeting is solid and the racquet offers the kind of feedback that provides the player with an instant feel for depth and angle. On serve this racquet truly shines. Offering tremendous access to both power and spin, this takes big serves and makes them huge. The perfect option for the player who likes to serve big and then follow up with big groundstrokes, this racquet is well worth a demo. Best suited to 4.0+ level players. Note: Due to racquet stiffness, when stringing with a polyester or a co-polyester we highly suggest 54lbs as a starting point for tension.
