    I have not hit with any of the Babolat racquets. I have read that they are generally a stiff racquet.

    Is the AeroPro Drive Cortex a stiff racquet? Have users had a problem with a sore arm from using this racquet?

    How would the stiffness and comfort compare to a nsix-one 95 16x18?

    I primarily play from the baseline, and it sounds like the AeroPro Drive Cortex is a very nice racquet from the baseline.

    AS u can see the only way to get a real answer is to just demo it for yourself:)

    I thinks it is very comfy and does not hurt my arm at all. I like the open racket face, and the good access to spin. I would demo it, and see how you like it.

    You'll definately have to demo. In my opinion, it's too bad.

    its not exactly comfy but its not harsh. its somehwat stiff but muted. it shouldnt cause any arm issues if your tecnique is solid. unless you have a weak arm (not talking about strength)

    DEMO IT, feel kinda sucks but the comfort and spin levels are fairly high I personally hated it on serve and at net but loved it on groundies, kill shots, and drop shots. You need loads of top spin with this stick because of the power level unless you string it tight taking away from comfort overall 7/10
