Most tennis fans will know the Babolat Pure Aero as the racquet that Rafael Nadal uses.  While it’s true that Nadal is a beast and can generate power and spin that most people can only dream of, his Pure Aero Racquet can offer plenty of help to any tennis player. Felix Auger-Aliassime and Carloz Alcaraz also use the Babolat Pure Aero racquet.

Weighing 11.2 oz, the Babolat Pure Aero is ideal for intermediate and advance players who play an aggressive baseline game with pace and spin. The latest version of this racquet is less stiff and has better feel than the previous generations. The open string pattern, combined with the generous 100 sq. in, allows players to add topspin that will keep the opponents on the defense.

The racquet will add a nice boost to your serve.  You can surprise your opponents with the speed this racquet can generate. Compared to the prior versions, this racquet has improved control. Even then, if you miss the big sweet spot on the racquet, some of your shots may lack control. If you are looking for more control, check out the Babolat Pure Drive or Babolat Pure Strike racquets.

In addition to the base Pure Aero, Babolat has a Pure Aero Light (less power), Aero Team (better control), and Aero Plus (more power, less control).

This lightweight racquet is ideal for baseliners who like a lot of power on their groundstrokes. Overall, it’s another great racquet in the Babolat Pure Aero line.

Pros
Excellent top spin
Good power

Cons
Difficult to control shots
