Stringing information for Babolat AeroPro Drive French Open Racquets: None available

As part of the Babolat and Roland-Garros collaboration, Babolat has developed the official Roland-Garros range of tennis equipment. This racquet is special edition French Open! The AeroPro Drive GT is our most popular racquet. Using a hybrid material consisting of Graphite and Tungsten, this racquet offers improved control with a more solid feel compared to previous versions. On court our TW testers confirmed an improved response without any loss in versatility. A good fit for baseline players, all court players and those that like to attack the net, the AeroPro Drive GT is also suitable for players from the 3.5 NTRP level all the way to the professional ranks. The medium weight blends excellent maneuverability with enough stability to weather heavy hitting. The Aero shaft design helps the racquet cut through the air for faster swing speeds. The result is more power and spin on groundstrokes and serves. At net, the racquet feels fast and easy to maneuver. A generous sweetspot provides nice punch and the crisp feel helps with precision. With its all court performance and great fit for various levels, there are no doubts as to this racquet's immense popularity. Note: Due to racquet stiffness, when stringing with a polyester or a co-polyester we highly suggest 54lbs as a starting point for tension.

Aero Modular Technology
AeroPro racquets feature a frame with varying profiles at three strategic points: the throat, the shaft and the head of the racquet.
Player Benefits:

  • - A faster swing due to improved aerodynamics
  • - Increased power while maintaining excellent ball control

Woofer
*Woofer Technology from Babolat

THE FIRST DYNAMIC SYSTEM WHICH MAKES THE FRAME AND THE STRINGS INTERACT WHEN STRIKING THE BALL

A tennis racket is a frame with strings. The frame is basically static and holds the driving force of the racquet - the strings - in place. The strings are attached to both sides of the frame. Only some strings are active when struck by the ball. This means that racquets do not deliver their full potential. Babolat set out to imagine a racquet optimizing the frame and the strings - to invent a frame which permits all the strings to work together to their full potential when striking the ball.

PULLEY FUNCTION

  • - The WOOFER eliminates string lock-up: the strings are free to move.
  • - The whole surface area reacts on impact: with the WOOFER, more strings work together when striking the ball. The strings are interactive. This increases sweetspot size, improving forgiveness during off-center shots and absorbing much of the shock produced during ball impact.

PISTON FUNCTION

  • - Increase in the Trampoline Effect: The piston function enables greater surface deformation on impact, delivering 10% extra power and ensuring that the strings retain their energy for a longer time.
  • - Shock Absorption: The pistons act like a suspension system to dampen unwanted vibration.

Babolat Aerobeam
The world's most aerodynamic racquet. +15% air penetration thanks to the aerobeam technology.

Cortex
Babolat's Cortex shaft vibration dampening system is designed to offer greater comfort during play. Available in two versions, the Cortex system used in the Pure series of racquets reduces harmful racquet vibrations without filtering out the feedback required for feel. The result of filtering unnecessary vibrations results in what Babolat calls a "pure feel." The Cortex system used in other Babolat racquets filters and dampens for maximum comfort.
