Comments: I love this racquet! I've demoed a lot of racquets, and this one is one of the best, so I bought it. Pros:
the power! Easy power, great spin, super controllable, great reach, my serves are fast, powerful, and controlled. I've pissed a lot of
people off on the court because of it. I add a lot of my own spin, so I wanted more power and this worked out perfect for me.
Cons: compared to the regular version, the bad shots hurt the wrist, hitting the bottom of the head feels a bit dead, but I dont
usually do that (I think I'm still getting used to that spot not being the sweet spot). Compared to the regular length APD, the
power and control is far better.
Comments: Great feeling stick. I was looking for a more powerful racquet that was easier to swing than my Wilson
BLX PS 90. Out of the box, this racquet is balanced and weighted well. Light enough to swing fast, heavy enough to add some
good plow through and power. Every ounce of power is controllable for me, except for my forehand, that was spraying a bit. Made
my one hand backhand lethal, easy to come over ball and rip it good. My serve was also well suited, extra length only felt in a
good way, never made it feel slow. Solid volley stick but I can see where some people might not like it as touch volleys might be
hard to pull off. Certainly has a bit of a dead feel like some folks say about Babolat, but not so much that you cant tell what you
are doing with the ball. Would have bought this racquet if I didn't like the Gamma RZE 95 more.
Comments: I have played enough with this racquet to weigh in on. I am a 4.0 player with a semi western forehand
and one handed back hand. The best way to describe this racquet is it takes your current game and adds beast mode! Unlike the
regular Aero the plus model is rock solid on service returns and very stable. You will be serving bombs with this thing, it is just
like the Roddick Pure Drive in that respect, the difference to me is it is a little more comfortable which surprised me with the
stiffness rating. At the net it is the most crisp feeling volleys I have ever seen, and if I played a lot of doubles, this is the stick. The
extra length didn't bother me on my backhand, but I just could not get the control on the forehand, as it was really powerful and I
like to take big swings and I just could not keep this thing in. The added weight in the plus length was not really a problem (this
is the first time I have played with a plus racquet) but when I was tired I could tell a little. All in all, it's probably the best doubles
racquet, and way better than the regular Aero. Strung with babolat rmp in mains 55 and nvy in crosses 59.
Comments: Everything that's said about this racquet in the review is pretty spot on. I am coming off playing with
standard length AeroPro GT and this racquet took a minimal amount of adjustment. It felt pretty comfortable from the first hit.
Though I have only hit with this racquet for a short time, I had moments where my jaw dropped as I watched my balls just moving
with so much pace, spin, and accuracy. Once I tweak my timing a little bit, I can foresee great things happening with this racquet.
serves, it is an absolute beast, and it has so much more put away power on tap then the older version. No bad vibes on off-center
hits, and it just feels more solid, faster through the air, and more comfortable then the older version. My slice backhand has never
been more lethal, and I can't wait to go out and play some more. That to me is a sign of a great racquet. Thumbs up.
