A lighter, more powerful version of the Babolat Aeropro Drive, the Aero Strike brings a high level of maneuverability to the courts. A big seller in the European market, the Babolat Aero Strike features such innovations as the Aero beam design in the throat, for added racquet head speed, as well as the powerful Woofer Grommet System in the hoop. The 100 square inch head provides a more forgiving, livelier stringbed than the popular Aeropro Drive. Our TW playtest team liked the maneuverability of it up at net. From the baseline, we found this stick to provide a great deal of spin and the frame stiffness provided good stability when going for powerful shots. Babolat's patented Cortex System found between the handle and throat provides excellent feel and feedback without the harsh vibrations that come from off center shots. At just under 10.5 ounces, this is a perfect choice for an advanced junior or intermediate players with a medium to full swing. Definitely worth a demo for those in the 3.0-4.5 NTRP playing range.
