    Go to racquetfinder.com; select Babolat; select Aeropro; when the racquet comes up, select Similar Racquets. BTW, the Head racquet mentioned above is not considered a similar racquet. Head does not appear to make a similar racquet as far as characteristics.

    Well then I'm asking what head racquet has easy access to spin while feeling pretty solid.

    Similar, but less stiff Head frames are the LM Radical MP and the YT Radical Pro. The RA rating on the APD is 70 whereas the Heads are less than 65. If you want stiff, suggest the YT IG Instinct with RA 69.

    IGextreme rackets, they are very good and almost feel more solid than the apd does spin is on par power is there too. Basically a apd and pure drive put together

    The Instinct could be a candidate as well.

    I found the BLX Pro Open(the previous version. Have not tried the 2012 version) to feel and play the most similar to APDGT.

    The dunlop 500 tours are direct rip offs, aren't they?

    Also, many people say the Prince o3 whites and the shark (which is now my racquet of choice) are less stiff versions of the APD's.

    The babs are basically tweeners. You can get those specs in quite a few sticks.

    I thought the IG Speed 18x20 was kind of close to my APDGT as far as Heads go. The Speed was a bigger server for me.
