Comments: Great platform frame for big spin modern game. Bought this racket to recreate Nadal's racquet spec in a slightly slimmer frame that is not as stiff as retail Babolat AeroPro Drive. Very happy with the result, heavy duty spin and power with good control. String bed response is very consistent and the feel is similar but fuller and smoother the then Babolat AeroPro Drive. Torsional stability is adequate without any lead on 3 and 9. One caveat is the grip, which is almost as oval as Head classic shape and a butt cap that is on the small side. I was able to address both by distributing lead in a way that bulked up the longer pallet sides (making it more square) and double wrapping the synthetic grip at the base (increasing flare at the bottom). 11g Lead on top from first to last main, 17g lead on the lower handle = 11.9oz, ~350SW, 5pts HL balance.
