I know on the tennis warehouse website it says that the Pure Drive and the AeroPro both have weights of 11.2 ounces strung but when i compared my Pure Drive to my friend's AeroPro his AeroPro felt significantly heavier I don't know if it was just the difference of strings or the racquet itself? Has anyone ever compared the weight two racquets? BTW his AeroPro was strung with Pro Hurricane Tour 16s and my Pure Drive is strung with Big Banger ALU Power Rough 16L if thats of any importance. Just curious lol

i used to play with an apd and my friend a pd... he always used to say my racquet felt heavier when we switched off for fun.. i think it has to do with how the weight is distributed throughout the frame in a pd vs an apd.. he said the weight was most noticeable during the swing.. the strings don't make THAT huge of a difference.. but u know.. babo's aren't known for their quality control.. and it just might be that you ended up with an apd with more head heavy balance and your friend ended up with a head lighter pd.. resulting in your apd "feeling" heavier
