Nadal is trying to make us believe his racquet is a Babolat Aero tour, but on several pictures and television it's obvious the frame isn't that of the Aero tour.
I don't remember which his racquet was before, probably the pure drive.
I tested the Aero tour myself with a Wilson sensation string, and all I must say, it's a terrible racquet, maybe that's why Babolat is trying to sell it by maken us believe Nadal is using it.

Sorry to burst your "Paint Job" bubble, but the Nadal frame is a REAL "Aero" frame. He uses the AeroDrive. Even though the frame is not available for sale yet, Babolat has sent them to a few of their top juniors. There is a top junior nationally ranked in the 14's who has a 27 inch AeroDrive. althought the specs are the same as the the Team Drive, the Aero plays with a touch more power.

That is right. I have one. It is a very solid hitting racquet. Very good power with low vibration.

Do you really think Nadal would "cheat" - get paid for promoting something he's not using! I find it hard to believe. Really! Can you point out other areas where Nadal is deceitful?

Here you go... You can clearly see Nadal's "cortex" is just a paintjob.

Unless Nadal has changed this year he has never used the Cortex system. The Cortex has always been a Paint job . I was on the same court with Nadal about 3 years ago and saw his racquets . Up close it's very clear to see it's a paint job . There's been many threads on this

I've got a few APDOs but it would be very cool to have one of his actual racquets. Maybe one day...

Why do stoopid people bump threads like this? :p

This thread is 10 years old and was created before the original APD was released. Of course it had no cortex.
