Comments: This racquet is powerful. I'm stringing it at 62lbs with a hybrid between Luxilon Big Banger and Gamma
TNT2. I get tons of power and moderate to high spin. It also has a huge head size. It's also light compared to other racquets so
the handling is a little easier.
Comments: I was choosing between this racquet and the Head Radical S. I demo'ed the AeroPro Drive and found it
to be a little too heavy, but I liked the stability of it. I was considering buying the lite version but found it to be not stable enough.
I did not like the Aero Storm because you have to produce more of your own power, and for someone who has bad tennis elbow I
did not like it. I found this one. WOW, what a racquet. I stung it with Pro Hurricane Tour 17 at 56lbs. I thought I would have
problems with my tennis elbow because of it being a full poly. but I have had no issues whatsoever. It was a great racquet! If you
are someone who loves the AeroPro Drive but finds it too heavy, go with this one for sure!
Comments: I playtested this along with 6 other frames using the demo program and kept coming back to this one
(spanning 2 weeks). Overall great for topspin. I actually enjoyed the touch feel for volley too, maneuverable. Love the near even
balance for the serves...they were noticeably more consistent, good pace. Disclaimer: Though I'm 5'9"+, I have a lighter frame and
this racquet is friendlier on my wrist/elbow. Last time I play tested or bought a racquet was 17 years ago...it's why I took some
time to try out the various new technologies. Though they say this is better suited for doubles play, it works for me for singles as
Comments: This racquet is really good. It is just the right amount of weight for intermediate players and has easy
access to spin.
Comments: This racket is packed with power. Higher string tensions will add some control.
Comments: I bought this racquet because the Babolat AeroPro Drive is simply to heavy for me. This is a great
racquet for a young junior like me to use so I will be ready for a new more advanced racquet in about 1 or 2 years.
Comments: I got this racquet because I was looking for something maneuverable around the court that wasn't too
light and I was very impressed. As expected you can get a ton of spin with this racquet but it is slightly lacking in power in
comparison to my previous frame (a Wilson ncode). It looks great and you can tell it is good quality and well made. The factory
strings mine came with wore out and frayed after a month or two playing twice a week so they don't last very long and so I had to
get it restrung but no complaints about the frame at all.
Comments: This is a very spin friendly racquet and very powerful. I did not really like this racquet as much as I
thought I would because it is very unforgiving and a little too powerful.
Comments: I purchased this racquet recently. I had previously used the Wilson (K) Factor KSurge which has all of
the same specifications (10.6 strung weight, 16x19 pattern, 100sqin headsize). The transition has been very friendly thus far. I
feel like I'm playing with a sexier (the thing's beautiful) version of my dear friend Wilson. I am noticing more spin and better feel -
which is to be expected converting to a newer racquet like this. However, the KSurge was much more forgiving when I missed the
sweetspot; I still have some getting used to the AeroPro Team, but it's very much welcome in my bag. I'd almost consider buying it
just to frame it ;). I'm a 3.0 to 3.5 player and I enjoy the light weight of the racquet.
Comments: I tested four racquets together: (1) The Dunlop Biomimetic 600, (2) the Babolat AeroPro Team GT, (3)
the Volkl Power Bridge 5, and (4) the Wilson BLX Pro Open.
Comments: I was surprised how flexible and comfortable feeling this racket was. It definitely feels much softer
than the 69 flex rating. It felt pretty good for considering it's low weight. The stock balance was nice and I found a huge amount
of spin from this racket. The racket was incredibly maneuverable and extremely easy to wield. The problem for me was that I
naturally have a medium swing speed and use racket weight to generate power. The lack of weight made it difficult for me to
generate enough power unless I swung very fast and aggressively. This in turn tired me out very quickly. This is odd for me as I
have fairly high endurance and will play through 2-3 sets of players from the time they arrive til the time they leave. I added lead
tape but it didn't feel as good as the stock form or an Aeropro Drive GT in stock form. I ended up with the Aeropro Drive GT. A
nice frame but you might need a very fast swing to get the most out of this racket.
Comments: Hi I am a junior player who loves topspin and power so I just wanted to know if this racquet will be
good for me.
Comments: As a beginner, I was using Prince (Silver O3) racket. After a while, I had a hard time coping both with
control and power. I got discouraged and almost gave up tennis. Then I did a thorough reading about racket frames that will suit
my game. I've decided to switch to Babolat Aero Pro Team GT and it's a success. I can now easily and quickly maneuver the racket
in both offense and defense play. It really improved my game a lot.
Comments: This is an AMAZING frame! When I first held it in my hand, I knew immediately I was going to do
wonders with this racquet. The swing was light and free, presumably from the aero-dynamics of the frame and the relative
lightweight of the racquet. Topspin hitters would enjoy the ease and comfort of delivery topspin. My game improved greatly and I
was able to hit shots that I thought I couldn't before. My serves are having more spin then before and are now more consistent. If
you are looking for a light but solid racquet, this is the one for you.
Comments: It's a good racquet with power and control. It's easier on the arm than the Pure Drive line. The specs on
the racquet states that it is a 4 point HL but I don't know why TW has it equal balance. I used to play with Pure Drive GT lite; but
my arm has been shredded with it. This one with the correct string eases my arm.
Comments: Always used Prince frames and wanted to try something different. I had bought an EXO Black (to retire
O3 Black Team frames) but later demo'd this Babolat. Liked the Aeropro Team right away so went with it and got rid of the Prince.
The Aeropro Team seems to let me do more with my serves. Frame seems to be balanced/weighted in a way to get more spin
rpm's for kicks and slices. I also found that I can keep my flat serve down and in much more consistently. I kept thinking I needed
a little more mass so I tried adding and adjusting weight to it but found that just leaving it alone works all around best for me. By
nature, I've always hit a flat forehand with slight topspin. I'm finding that using a semi-western grip and really hitting up on the
ball works best for this racquet. For me, hitting heavy backhand slices is much more consistent than the Prince Black. The Babolat
seems to have better touch for drop shots. Very maneuverable for half volleys when rushing the net. The racquet is on the lighter
side for making consistently deep volleys and non-sitters. Just have to remember to give a little more punch to it and the frame
Comments: I think this racket is the bomb for sure. Ever since I got this stick I have been hitting tons heavier and
deeper, and of course with a lot more spin. The weird thing is I'm getting also more power with this stick. I was with the Wilson k
factor k six two and that is like nothing compared to this racket. All I was able to do with that Wilson was to hit it short with
nothing on the ball. It was terrible, although I did beat the number ten guy in Texas with that stick. There are so many things that
are good about this racket.
Comments: This racquet is OK. It's not bad at all, but it's not great. There is no comparison between it and the
AeroPro Drive GT. The decreased weight makes it harder to power in shots, but, like the Aero Pro Drive, it does offer unbeatable
control. A very good 'tweener or recreational racquet.
Comments: I demo'd this as well as the standard Aero Pro Drive GT. I really liked this frame much better since the
power level is a bit higher, the lightness (10.6 oz string) and balance (even), made it a pleasure to hit with. Swing speed was
excellent. Using it for approaches and volleys, I got a very solid response from the frame as well.
Babolat really listened to the consumer this year and made a frame that hits the sweet spot between a more advanced player frame
(the standard Aero Pro Drive) and the ultra light (lite frame) beginner/jr frame.
I didn't expect I would like this frame, but I liked it more than the Prince EXO3 White. Shots were flying on me at first, but once I
shortened up my stroke and let the racquet do the work, I was able to place my shots much better. Topspin definitely helps to
keep balls in the court. This is a top spin hitter's dream frame. The lack of feel does make it hard to feather slice shots, but the
APD GT Team will work on slice shots, you just have to use perfect form. The racquet feels very solid for its weight and I think that
is probably due to the almost even balance. A huge sweetspot makes it hard to mishit.
Comments: I knew I liked this frame from the first few strokes. The feel was great, the spin was outrageous, serves
were spinny, little to no adjustment period was needed, and I felt it fit my game well. However... The frame was just too light for
me. I think it'd fit junior players extremely well, but once you start playing against the heavy hitters, I think a little more mass is
necessary. Great for the loopy playing juniors out there.
