Comments: I love this racquet! It has good control.
From: Ryan, 10/12
Comments: You get great power and spin compared to my old AeroPro Drive. It's much more controllable, and even
though I play with a big swing the control is still there. I love this racquet and I am planning on getting another one.

String type: Babolat RPM Blast
Comments: I bought this APD French Open version mainly because of the cosmetics. I think the predominantly
black and red trim looks much better IMO than Rafa's black and yellow. It is a much more "mature" or grown-up paintjob than
Rafa's version. This is a factor the racquet companies should consider when appealing to mature players with restrained tastes.

Comments: I got tons and tons of spin with this racquet. I loved it. Enough said!

String type and tension: Solinco Outlast 17g @ 54lbs
Comments: What a beast of a racquet! Controllable power, lots of spin, and plenty
of control. When I first tried this racquet I hated it, as I thought it had too much power. Then I tried it again, and I had the same
impression. One year later I was searching for a new racquet, and I took this one out for a third time. It had a completely different
feel, and I loved it! I use it with Prince Synthetic PolyBlend at 58lbs in the mains and 56lbs in the crosses. I'm going to try a full
bed of Luxilon BB ALU Rough afterwards. Great racquet and great cosmetics! I've received many compliments on this beast of a

Comments: This racquet is amazing, and I am going to buy one soon. I'm using the old
AeroPro Drive and it's great! It gives a lot of topspin and power.

String type: polyester
Comments: If you do not regularly have arm pain and are used to playing with a heavier frame, this is a great
racquet. However, if you are used to using lighter frames and have experienced occasional tennis elbow, take caution. I loved this
racquet when I first bought it, but after about 3 or 4 days of playing on it, I began to notice a growing pain in my elbow and lower
bicep. Needless to say, I stubbornly ignored it and kept playing with my new racquet. By the following week, I could barely hold
onto the grip after 15 minutes of play. I rested for a week and tried to make it work, but eventually I ended up returning the
racquet and getting something in the 10.5oz range, which is much more comfortable for me. If you have ever experienced arm
pain but you still want to try this racquet, I would highly recommend avoiding poly strings and instead go for synthetic or gut.
This all being said, this truly is one gorgeous racquet. The Babolat design team really did an outstanding job on this one.

String type and tension: Babolat RPM Blast @ 58 lbs
Comments: I am also a Babolat Aeropro Drive user and I recently made a change because I needed another racquet.
This racquet feels spin-frendly and I'm able to hit more powerful serves (it may be because of different strings I used with my old
Aeropro Drive, which is Hurricane and Xcel). My shots were consistant and I was able to make less unforced errors. Overall, really

Comments: Recently made the switch from the pure drive, which I had been playing with for over 5
years. Found this racquet to have a more solid feel and more control without sacrificing any power. Glad I made the
From: Anon, 6/12
Comments: This is the most amazing racquet that I have ever had. It has the best stability and power.
From: Jane, 6/12
Comments: Great racquet and great style. I get great power and great topspin with this racquet. I had
originally used the racquet that Andy Murray uses but the Babolat racquet is more comfortable and I think it has more
power. I would suggest this racquet to anyone.
From: Matt, 5/12
Comments: The racquet has incredible power as well as good looks. I've previously played with Head
racquets, and this one has much more feel and power as well as control. Not only that, but the design looks
intimidating and amazing.

Comments: Just jaw-droppingly gorgeous. I don't even play with this racquet but I'm
considering buying one and hanging one up as a piece of art.
From: Mike, 4/12
Comments: This plays just like an AeroPro but the design and decals are 100 times cooler.
From: Jonathan, 4/12
Comments: I love this racquet it is especially great because I am the like the biggest Sam Querry fan.
