    Are you sure you have the weights of the controls right? Mine are 11.3 oz (320g) and I think the drives are 10.6 oz...

    11.3 ounces is Babolat's target unstrung weight. Our specs are always listed for strung racquets.

    I see, Thanks. I didn't know my racquet was that heavy. Doesn't feel that heavy though...

    The headsize listed for the Aeropro Drive is wrong, it is not 98 sq. in., the headsize is actually 100 sq. in.

    When will these be available for demo?

    also, they are coming up as backordered...does this mean, the first shipment is already sold out from backorders?

    Seems both the specs. for the aeropro drive standard and plus models are wrong. The headsize is not 98sqin, the correct size for both should be 100sqin. Can TW pls. confirm the correct headsize. I'm going to order mine asap.

    I got a chance to hit w/ the Aero Drive racket this weekend. It's almost the same as the PD. It required no adjustment period whatsoever. Don't know if it was me or the racket, but my slices seemed better than ever that day. Pretty easy to volley with for me, but then, i'm used to the PD. I'm looking forward to trying the Aero Control next. Both have an interesting paint scheme.

    AeroPro Drive does in fact have a 100 sq. inch headsize. This has now been corrected in our spec tables. Also, our specs are based on measurements taken from 2 samples of each model. We'll measure more samples once our inventory arrives.

    As you will note in the text in the descriptions and tag lines, the racquets are now available for pre-order - due here 1/12.
    Demos will be available as soon as we get the demo stock in and strung.

    FYI - We are currently playtesting the AeroPro Drive and Drive+ (well, we will be when it finally stops raining here in sunny CA).

    Thanks,
    Chris, TW.
