I hit with Babolat AeroPro Drive GT(original yellow color) for about 15 mins couple of months ago and really loved how much spin I was able put on the ball. I have way too many racquets so I don't need anymore but...

Today I walked into my local tennis store and saw this "Red" beauty so my obsession buying veins were pumping. I asked " What kind of Babolat is this?"
The owner replied..."Babolat AeroPro Drive GT French Open Roland Garros Special Edition just came in today. I'll give you a great deal if you want it because you are one of my best customer". That was all I needed to hear. End of the story!!!

Looks awesome! I have the anniversary pure drives and the red they use for these two models is perfect. Hope you like it! What's your string setup?

Looks nice! I think you are using rpm correct? And for kicks i'm guessing the tension is 56 lbs?

Wow, Just put this racquet on my digital scale and balance board. All the specs are right on. Did I just get lucky? How is Babolat QC? I'm thinking about getting another one. Thanks

might have gotten lucky.. i've had an apdc that was quite a bit heavier than spec.

good luck if you get another, they're beautiful sticks!

I almost picked up the 6 pack Babolat Team Line French Open RG bag but it does not have thermal insulation. I may buy the 12 pack RG bag if I decide to switch to Babolat fulltime :)
