    i didn't like it at all. it's a love it or hate it racquet. to me it had an odd hollow feel that i could just not deal with.

    I use the aeropro plus version and the only cons I think think of is the light weight. I had to add some lead tape to the racket to put it at my ideal weight.

    i heard it isnt that great for serving If you look at the customer feedback many people say that it was hard to serve with. The review says this as well.

    Now down to 4 feet behind the baseline.
    My only experience with this racquet was a few serves and some groundstrokes. I actually served fairly well with it, but then again it wasn't really enough to tell...

    The worst racquet to volley with ever? I can volley much better with my kid brothers 23" wilson kfactor immitation. Way too much power freakin' looked like a half peeled banana. And they want $180, are they insane or was I insane to give it to them?

    id say the worst con is its weight,serving aint that great with it.i have an apdc and now pure storm but i think they should of came out with a nadal signature series racket that was heavy at least like 11.9 or more.

    that would be sick a nadal signature edition. Would probably sell pretty well. Im sure babolat is planning on releasing one once the new line drops in a couple of years. By then roddicks ranking will drop even more and they will drop the pure drive roddick series. Sikee!

    Very odd, his first 174 posts were about PHT and Babolat being the best...

    Cons.

    Too much power
    Touch is non existent
    Volleys are a shocker
    Too light - no plow through

    Haven't used it in a game or anything yet, but it seems shockingly powerful yet weak at the same time. Seems like i could touch the ball and it would go over the fence..

    Also, the swing is just kind of strange. I like the racquet in lots of ways, but the swing just feels weird.

    Lastly, everyone and their mom has the Aeropro...

    That was good!:). I never thougt of my apdc as a half peeled banana haha... but actually I love the fruit, and now I love my racquet...

    This frame is very special, in the sense that it could transforms with some time, from being a very odd stick, too light and hollow, to a very good all court frame once you get used to it.

    I cant point out the reason, but i swear it happens like that, so ypu shouldnt trust your first experience.
