    Hi, supposedly I'm buying a Babolat AeroProdrive GT but after trying some hits with this racquets:

    AeroPro drive GT Lite version
    Aeropure Storm GT
    Pure drive 107

    Now I'm a little bit confuse which one I will buy is there really a big
    difference. I am a intermediate player who plays I usually play inside the baseline doing deep placements, I like putting the ball on near baselines.
    if I am on the baseline I usually like placing the ball on different sides each time i hit the ball. So which one is better for me

    Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

    Buy the one that feels and works (provides better results) for you.

    The only real way to find out what racket fits you is to demo each racket. Racket choice is a preference that no one can determine for you.

    I guess you are very lucky to stand there, if I stand there I will get all the balls at my lags or behind me
    1. Does it have to be babolat?
    2. Are you a flat hitter?
    3. Get something you like most in terms of feel and look, it will encourage you to play and improve your game.

    I would also encourage to Demo all of them. Most tennis shops offer free demoing. But if you already have your mind set on one of these three. Seems like the Pure Drive 107 would best fit your game. If stand inside the baseline and take the ball early, then a 107 square inch racket would be good for you as the larger sweet spot would be forgiving and let you get away with off center hits. You will not have much time to react to balls from where you're standing and that will help.

    If you are just starting out on the game, I would probably go for the 107, presumably this has the largest sweetspot and is the most forgiving. But like the others have mentioned, you should as far a possible demo yourself to get a feel of what you actually like. Good luck!

    I was in the same situation as you last fall. In my case, I was getting back into the game after a long sabbatical. After demoing all 3, I ended up with the Aeropro Drive. The 107 just felt too light, and the Aeropro Drive felt more stable than the Pure Drive. That may have changed with the new Pure Drive.

    Today I was able to demo this 3 racquets. And I come down on liking the AeroPro Drive GT LITE feel to my hand and swing, until I tried this
    HEAD Radical S it also has amazing feel on my hand and swing I just have the budget I'll buy both :)

    Babolat AeroPro Drive GT Lite OR HEAD Radical S

    I am putting a natural gut string with it.
