Offering excellent access to spin and some useful pop from all areas of the court, this popular player's racquet just got better with the addition of Babolat's Cortex System. Placed just above the handle in the shaft of the racquet the Cortex System eliminates harmful vibrations, without eliminating any feel for touch play. The extended length of the AeroPro Drive Cortex+ (27.5") makes it a more powerful offering compared to its standard length brother. Players with fast swings will also find this one slightly more spin friendly. Our advanced level players found heavy topspin and slice easy to generate both off the ground and on serve. At net, the AeroPro Drive Cortex+ feels very maneuverable for an extended length racquet, thanks in part to its light 11.2 ounce strung weight. There's a very solid feel to accompany the maneuverability of this one at net, and we found good direction and placement on volleys. On serve the AeroPro Drive Cortex+ truly shines. There's easy access to both pace and spin, making this a great serving stick no matter if you're going for a heater down the middle or a kicker out wide. Best suited to 4.0+ level players.
