    Well, the Pure Control was somewhat OK I guess actually. The only good Bab for me.

    I thought it was the aeropro drive +, but then I tried the standard aeropro control and immediately bought one.

    Hate is currently wining LOL. Babolats aren't bad racquets at all. Just too stiff and often not solid enough.

    The pure drive team plus. When you hit the sweetspot with this one the ball cannot go out. Also slices are amazing.

    AeroPro Control is best by far. Undiscovered by most, since everyone just goes with the superlight Roddick stick.

    Pure Storm. Most control oriented Babolat I've tried. Also one of the most flexible. Quite comfortable to hit with.

    I dont play with a babolat, and i really didnt like the aeropro drive even though it is suited to my type of game. I think the reason that babolat is so popular is because much of the tennis these days is played by juniors, juniors are attracted to cool/modern paint jobs which bab has. Also all of their sticks are suited to the modern game. I am about to demo a pure drive roddick, for me the specs seem to be what i am looking for and it is also based towards the modern game which i seem to have. I am a junior and for some reason i have gone the complete opposite way from what i have just said, though much of this is because of being on these boards. I play with a POG mid, which caters pretty well for my game. But most juniors and most players dont go on these websites and they see the flashy players, roddick, nadal etc playing with these grouped with the paintjobs and also targetted towards the modern game , to them it seems that they cant go wrong.

    The only Babolat I can play with is the Pure control, that's it. All their other racquets are trash.

    yeah, they're trash... that explains why so many pros use them :confused:

    Just accept that your game doesn't suit a stiff, powerful frame. Don't say that they are trash. Many people use Babolat racquets with great success.

    I can't imagine Babolat making a players racquet. I see them as a "power-oriented" company, even in their "control" lines. They're missing out on a large part of the market who wants that midsize heavy frame. They gain a lot of kids and teens because of their cool looks and power orientation, and the large number of pro's using their sticks.
