Comments: Very good racket a lot stabeler than the new apd I don't know why I like the apd better than the apdc. On ground strokes the apd is much better and has a lot of spin the new one has a lot of flex it fells like. Serves were ok but better than the new one. Volleys were much better than the new apdc.
Comments: This racquet is amazing I use lead tape around the 3 and 9 positions on the racquet head and in the throat to make it heavier and my serve is just killer and my groundstrokes are great. A must demo for 3.5 NTRP ranked players and above.
Comments: It had good power, okay spin, but it was a beast to swing around. It was really stiff-feeling. I really liked volleys, but whenever I tried to hit topspin groundstrokes, they'd go everywhere. It's probably just my technique, but the O3 Speedport Black or AeroPro Drive W/ Cortex suits me better. I hit consistently with those. All of these are worth a try.
Comments: Excellent racquet with the perfect combination of spin and power. I demoed this racquet about 2-3 weeks ago, and I was so sad to send it back. I bought it a couple days after, and I am so happy with my purchase. You get so much kick off the serve, but so much control. I switched from a Head Flexpoint Team. Great racket, definitely worth demoing.
Comments: Honestly, I was amazed at this racquet. I had heard so many mixed things with the new version out and how much better it was. Honestly when this racquet is cross string with Babolat Pro Hurricane in the Mains and Synthetic in the Crosses, it is a dream for power and control. It gives me the exact pop I am looking for. I want balls shooting off my strings, especially at for net and volley shots. This one gave it too me. Oddly I had borrowed it from my Pro. Then I went to serve. WOW, WHAT A DREAM!! Effortless, powerful. Odd how everyone's opinion on this racquet is so different. I notice no difference between this one and its newer cousin and I have the BOTH. What I have learned about these racquets is they are like a fine tuned race car and stringing makes al the difference in the world. String them right, youíll have a dream!! Make sure that you cross string these for maximum performance.
Comments: This racquet is by far the best racquet to play with. It has everything whether its control or power. My groundstrokes have improved and my serves too. This racquet improves your game, your accuracy, and I recommend it to people who want to improve not only how they play, but how they feel as a tennis player. I rate this racquet 20/10. Thatís how good this phenomenal racquet is.
Comments: This racquet is by far the best racquet on the market right now. The Top-Spin this racquet can generate is amazing because of its light weight. I used to be third doubles on my team but now Iím 2nd singles because of this racquet. One thing to remember is this racquet is not for the flat ball hitter.
Comments: Great racquet! I love the nice soft feel the racquet has. It has added a nice extra pop to my two handed backhand and serve. The big challenge is reigning in the power on this stick. It has almost too much power for my forehand side, but having more power available is better than not enough...
Comments: When I first got this racquet I wasnít as strong as I am now. At first the racquet was great but then as I got older and stronger I find that this racquet is beginning to get in front of me a bit. It also lacks weight, which makes you have to swing a million miles an hour to get a little bit of power on the ball. If youíre looking for more power in this racquet, I would advise putting some lead tape on it.
Comments: I demo'ed this racket for a week and played about twelve sets of singles. It's a pretty good racket but not really my style. It's a little too stiff for me. I also thought that it was a little too powerful. I eventually learned to manage the power and was able to play fairly well with it. Control was pretty good but I thought the racket was a little sluggish when you needed a quick response. Spin off the ground was ok but not great. Volleys were ok but not great. The racket is very stable and vibration free. The biggest problem was that it was pretty near impossible to serve flat with this racket. All in all, a pretty fair racket that will appeal to a lot of players.
Comments: This is a racquet I have used for a few months. I also use the AeroPro Drive. This is a very good racquet with good power and good control. It is a little head heavy, but the extra length helps my serve noticably. I still prefer the AeroPro Drive because of better control. I play a flat serve and lots of cuts, slices and lobs.
Comments: I just played with the AeroPro Drive+ today and it hits outstanding! I was really surprised because it was really light and its stiffness is great! I use a Western Grip and has great amount of spin on it with every hit. It also has great control, AND power. My serves have gotten much faster and more accurate than my previous racquet (Prince NXG Tour Graphite Midplus). I recommend AeroPro to people who use Western grip or another grip that adds tremendous spin because this is what youíre looking for.
Comments: I have bought 2 of these rackets and have broken 1 and cracked 1. I donít abuse my racket, but I think that heavy hitting and powerful serving slowly destroys the fibers inside the racket. I love this racket though and would recommend it to more tactical players, not strong hitters.
Comments: This is an "ok" racquet. I demoed this and the new Pure Drive Plus together. I definitely preferred the Pure Drive Plus. It felt so much more solid than the Aeropro Drive
Plus. This racquet isn't forgiving on off-center shots. A positive note on this racquet is you can generate a lot of headspeed on serves and get a lot of kick. If you are looking for a solid racquet with great all-around playability I recommend the Wilson Ncode Npro Open.
Comments: This is an okay racket as long as you play the majority of your game on from the ground. It is not
possible to hit very fast, flat serves (because the frame flexes too much), and volleys are decent. The real beauty of this racket lies
in the topspin groundstrokes. It is possible that this racket delivers more spin and pace than any racket I've played with, but the
control was lacking in a big way. I could hit huge, wicked forehands, but my opponents were getting to them. I was forcing my
opponents to hit weaker shots, but they were still coming back over the net. I was relying too much on my opponent to make
errors, because I didn't have the pinpoint control to hit winners. I'm going to stick with a much heavier, control-oriented racket.
Comments: I really like this racquet. It provides a lot of topspin and pace on the ball and it great for volley. I have
tried many of the prince, Dunlop, gamma, Babolat racquets and I like this one the best. There is a downfall especially for people
who serve faster than 90 mph. You can actually feel the frame of racquet breaking from inside, I think this is reason why Nadal
uses the other racquet. This is a good racquet for players between 4.0 to 4.6, people higher that this should use Aeropro Drive.
Comments: To me, this is the best racquet I've ever picked up. I've used plenty of Wilson, Yonnex, and Prince, but
nothing compares to this one. I'm usually a heavy hitting baseliner, and this racquet suits the way I play perfectly. The only flaw I
can think of is the framing ball once in a while, but other than that it's awesome.
Comments: I would not recommend this racquet to any heavy hitters. The racquet actually has a flaw in it. The
length of the racquet puts way too much stress on the neck of the racquet and tends to break, particularly on serves. I've received
and returned this racquet three times in six months. The playability is great and as a 4.5 player it really allows me better reach
and to really get myself on top of the ball, but after I consistently serve over 110mph I can feel the racquet actually breaking.
There's a reason why Nadal plays with the regular and not the plus. I personally now play with the regular and love it. Its power is
greatly reduced compared to the plus. I still prefer the aero pro to any other racquet, particularly if your a heavy top spin player.
Comments: This racket was really good. It improved my hits the first time I played with it. My
groundstrokes, volleys, overheads, etc were very impressive! I was a little iffy between this racquet and another,
but I feel I made the right choice by choosing this one! I definitely recommend this racquet.
Comments: I bought the plus but wish I had purchased the standard length. The plus's swingweight
is high given its weight compared to other racquets with the same weight/balance. It's great indoors but it
swings heavy in the wind. Otherwise a great, comfortable racquet. Maybe the most arm friendly I've ever used.
Comments: I used to play with the Babolat Pure Drive +, but I was getting some joint problems
because of the stiffness. I demoed the Dunlop M-Fil 300, Wilson nSurge, Volkl Tour 10, Yonex RDX-300, and
the Babolat Pure Storm. The Aeropro Drive + had the second softest feel (after the Dunlop), the most power,
spin, and sweet spot size. My volleys have improved significantly. I have become more consistent because of
the confidence that all of the spin produced by the racquet. Although the weight is nearly the same as the Pure
Drive +, the swingweight is a little heavier and if you take the ball late, it sometimes gets thrown deep from the
spin. My serve speed stayed almost the same as did my power of the ground, but the added spin made up for
the tiny drop in power. I also demoed the standard length version, which added even more feel and control, but
it did give up more on the power department, which is why I bought the plus.
Comments: I just finished demoing many of the new Babolat racquets and feel they are best suited
for the young. They tend to be very powerful but not forgiving on the arm. My elbow is sensitive to overly
powerful racquets and I could feel the twinges after hitting with this racquet. I sure wish it was available 25
Comments: Whoa at first I thought this racket would be impossible to play with. And now I know that
Iím wrong. This racket is awesome. Perfect blend of power and control.
Comments: I've had this racquet for about 6 months and adore it. I try other racquets for curiosity
but it's not the same. This racquet gives great spin and pop on serves and groundstrokes. Put the right strings
on this thing and it's amazing. I've turned from a 4.0 to a 5.0 since Iíve had this racquet. Lead tape also helps
make it a little heavier.
Comments: This racquet is so great. The serves and groundstrokes have tons of spin and the slices
are so easy to do. The volleys are tremendous and I am winning almost all of the games I have played.
Comments: First of all, this racquet is a very good racquet for someone who plays with western
grip. And if your hitting mechanic is right, you can provide sharp angled crosscourt shots with heavy topspin just
like Rafael Nadal. I had played with the Prince Graphite oversize for a long time and prior to the AeroPro Drive,
I played with the Head Liquidmetal Radical. But none had provided as much topspin and incredible shots like
the AeroPro Drive. Not sure if more expensive string would make it better, but I had found the Prince topspin
plus a great one for the racquet. A must racquet for aggressive baseliners.
Comments: Fantastic blend of power, spin, and control for someone who likes to bang from the
base line. You have to hit with spin to play well with this racket. If you hit big and flat you'll hate it. This racket
rewards aggressive topspin swings with power and control. Serves have good pace and spin as well. Up at
the net it has good feel and touch. I initially never would've believed I'd be happy with any stick under 11.5oz,
but this holds well even under the heaviest hitting. If you hit with good topspin, try this racquet. Compared the
Pure Drive this has a softer, sweeter hit and is easier on the arm.
Comments: I have switched from the pure drive and I love it! I think its one of the best racquets in
the world. I liked the pure drive but this is even better. It adds spin and pop at the same time. I also think its
better at volleys than the pure drive.
Comments: This racket is awesome, I have played with it for a couple months
and I love it. I have switch from the pure drive to the aeropro drive and found that it gives way
more control then the pure drive. For someone that spends a mojority of time at the baseline
and has powerful ground strokes this is the racket for you.
Comments: I have had this racket for about 6 months now and I absolutely love
it. The topspin that
you can create with this racket is uncomparable to any other. Groundstrokes are amazing,
and volleys are so
crisp. Serving with it took a while to get used to but I know hit serves better, especially the
kick serve. All in all,
this is a great racket.
Comments: I made the switch from a Wilson N-Tour to the Aero Drive + and I've
noticed such a
difference in just a few weeks. I hit a heavy ball and this has added more pop and pace. I'm
getting my shots
deeper. I'm generating more topspin than with the N-Tour. I'm more confident at the net and
my serve has
become more consistent and a little more powerful. My USTA league teammates can
definitely tell a difference.
This was a great change for me. I think that my game is going to go to the next level.
Comments: I just got this racquet for Christmas and love it. It is amazing with my
serves and volleys.
It is stiff, which is a new feel for me (I changed from a Babolat Control Team Plus) The only
problem I have with
this racquet is that I hit it long a lot. I just started playing with it so I need to get used to it
though. I give this
racquet an A.
Comments:Previously, for two years, I used the Pure Drive +, but then a couple
of weeks ago, I bought 2 of these and they are just tremendously great! Before, with the
Pure Drive +, I had a lot more power than I had control, but with this baby, it has a
combination of both power and control, notably on my forehands and serves. I also noticed
a lot of improvement on my backhands (I can now rip them down the line or crosscourt). All
in all, this racquet is everything that I ever wanted.
Comments:This racket is good to a point it feels too flimsy. It has alot of topspin
like people say, but
that is about it. It is arm friendly but the wild shots you get sometimes make you want to quit
Comments:This racauet is definitely the best racquet that I have ever played
with. I am a the
number one player in my state for high school and the Babolat AeroPro Drive + took me to
the top with its ability
to spin your opponents off the court. Babolat, thank you so much!
Comments: Iíve played this racquet for several months now and my game has
grown in leaps and
racquet is everything they claim it to be and possibly more. I get excellent access to spin,
both topspin and
backspin whenever I
do drop shots. It has excellent pop when serving and provides very good pace on
groundstrokes. I added some
lead to the 2 and
10 positions, however, I put even more under the grip in the handle. After adding lead I have
really found my
groove with this
Comments:I bought this racquet a couple of days ago and it has complete
opened a new door to
my game. I now hit heavy spin without straining myself, and its made it easier for me to
serve and volley. Don't
get me wrong though this is a great groundstrokers racquet and you get some great power.
My only fault with
racquet is its so ugly, anyway thanks Babolat!
Comments: I've had this stick for 3 weeks. I have seen a huge difference in my
game. I had the
Wilson P.S. Rok, and
after every 2 to 3 game in a day I would get a bad elbow. Since I got the AeroPro I've not had
any problems. I
get a lot more spin
to every shot with this racquet. This is the best stick I have ever owned. Thank you BABOLAT!
Comments: I just used this racquet briefly and I love it. It is forgiving when you're
on defense, and
power you need if your opponent gives you a chance. it worked especially well on a slice
backhand. I get extra
spin on my
forehand. I will definitely buy this racquet and would recommend it to anyone wishing to take
his or her game to
the next level.
Comments: I have had this racquet for about a month and I like it so much that I
racquet, my forehands have gotten more pace on it and I went from a slice backhand to a
backhand. This racquet is
friendly with topspin. The volleys however are somewhat difficult, not an extreme difficulty, it
just requires time
to get used to.
are fairly quick and often consistent with this racquet. The hybrid string set-up I have really
brings out the
strengths of the
racquet also feels so comfortable that I could play all day in it!
Comments: In my opinion, this racquet is pretty good. It is basically just like the
Pure Dive Plus only it has an aero-modular frame design. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would
probably rate it a 7. Groundstrokes with this racquet are definitely clean and crisp and you
can vary depth and handle spin quite easily, depending on how hard you hit the ball...I'm
generally a hard hitting baseliner. Volleys and overheads are pretty easy to hit with this
racquet and if struck cleanly usually produce winners. The only problem with this racquet is
the mis-hits and framing balls. This happens ALL THE TIME mostly on serves. I cant play a
set without horribly framing the ball a couple of times on my serves. Other than that, this
racquet plays fairly well.
Comments: I agree with Brian, this racquet is easy on the arm which surprised
me because of its stiffness level. It plays very well and you don't need an extreme grip to hit
with lots of topspin. It also is a nice serve and volley racquet.
Comments: This racquet is elbow friendly! I played with this racket for 5 consecutive days upon purchase
and I was surprised my tennis elbow somehow diminished. Playing tennis with my previous
racquets meant pain to me. I can now freely swing this racket (like Nadal does- well,
somewhat)without the fear of getting a jolt of elbow pain, specially on mistimed hits. Hitting
has become pleasurable with this racquet. No more pains-No more fears. Also, the revs of
my top, under, and sidespins have increased tremendously. Before, I was contented with
just an backspin backhand. With this racquet, I now hit effective top-spin backhand with
Sharply angled shots are now part of my arsenal. I can proudly say - I am now a new tennis
player! I believe this racquet will be my magic wand for a very long time! Thank you Babolat.
Comments: This racquet has helped me improve from a 4.0 to 4.5 in less than a
month. I hit ground strokes with much
better top spin and accuracy now from both sides. My kick serve is also much more
accurate and heavier.
