What are the differences between these rackets. Does the Control have less spin than the Drive? Also, is the Control noticebly better for volleys? I am an all court player, and volleys are just as important as ground-strokes. I tried the Drive and loved it on everything but volleys. If the Control is just a bit less power, and better on volleys, and nothing else changed, I think it might be my Holy Grail racket.

i think aeropro control plays more like a traditional racquet while aeropro drive feels a bit more like a 300+horse power japanese car..... whether u get it or not....

However its heavier and is noticeably less manueverable, which is why I prefer the Drive. I have no problem volleying with the Drive.

What sort of volley problem do you have with the Drive? Could it be related to your string setup ?

Ok the BASIC difference is.......The Drive is a tweener and the Control is a players racket. The control is also a more headlight racket resulting in better maneuverability at the net.

I like the Aeropro Drive (my current racquet)
The best i ever played.
For a few weeks i picked up the Aeropro Control, horrible!
Felt to heavy, and is hard to swing after 10 minutes because of the weight.
