    I recently ordered this and im just wondering how other people that have this feels about this racquet. Did u find it good or bad?

    Im trying to develop my strokes and im hoping to improve with this raquet, and maybe some others thought the same thing and got positive/negative results. Any feedback or personal experiences would be much appreciated.

    Also any other babolat racquet that u found good for improving all around game would be appreciated as well.

    the new one looks good, with a thinner throat than the other Aero sticks. I guess it can be a good one, if it is stable.

    I hit a couple serves for fun with a demo the other day. It serves bombs.

    if your trying to develop your strokes as mentioned in first post then i dont think you are a 4-4.5...
    if u are a 4-4.5 you are trying to improve strokes you already have...

    I dont see what people like in this racquet. Its so blah and very hard to maneuver at net. Has no pop. The only thing it has going for it is its plow through effect and mass. Other than that its like a mid sized frame with no feel. The pure storm tour is by far a way better racquet than this one. More feel, flex , pop and more maneuverable at net.

    If anyone is looking for one I have one that's a 3/8 grip and is in 9-9.5/10. I bought it on a whim and have decided to stick with my old reliable Volkl Tour 8s. It's only been played with for a few sets and is strung with PHT mains and PSGD crosses at 60 lbs.

    Let me know if you're interested. I'm sure we can make a deal.

    I just traded one on the boards. I found it had good pop for a player's frame. In fact, I found it had too much pop for me. I even cut out the 17g multi (strung at mid range) and put in a 16g Alpha Gut 2000 at the top of the range, and it was still too much power for me. For reference, I play with the Yonex RDS 001 MidPlus and now the RQiS Tour 1. The weight and balance were good for me, but I found that, like most Babolats, you have to take a full swing to control the ball. Anything with less than a full stroke tended to sail long. I would recommend it for those who like the feel of a classic player's stick, but want more power.

    I don't like the specs of the racket very much. But to you might like it so. It depends on the person.

TTTTTTT.TTTTTTT Now i have to wait all weekend, and i have to go through school monday, then i have to wait for him to string it.
