Thanks to its extended length, the updated AeroPro Drive Plus moves through contact with even more speed than the standard length version. Our TW playtesters found it easy to put the added length and swingweight to work, thanks to a slightly lighter and faster feel compared to its predecessor. With its added length and easy maneuverability, there is definitely some extra power and spin to be had from this racquet. The stiff beam and open string pattern further enhance both power and spin. New to this update is Babolat's Active Cortex technology, which is designed to provide a slightly smoother ride. Our playtesters were impressed with how much this racquet allowed them to impose their will from the baseline, especially when their weight was behind the ball. At net this racquet is stable and surprisingly fast, with easy access to power. The extra length, stiff beam and open pattern add some nice kick and pace to serves. Like its predecessor, this one is perfect for big hitters looking for a real weapon. Best suited to 4.0+ 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.
