    Does Nadal really use the aerotour, or a pure drive with a paintjob, or a mystery with an aerotour paintjob?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    It is a prototype that is a mix between the aero and the PD and is still not available on the market.As miguelcoletta stated it is in efect the aerodrive but hopefuly it will make it into production.Nadal absolutely loves it.Hope this helps and have a great day..

    I have physically held the prototype AeroControl....The racquet has the wing design in the throat, but the head of the racquet is similar to the pure control...nice balance and weight to the stick...can't wait to give it a whirl...

    it is so obvious that he uses PD cant u tell when u look at the beam from the size, its really thick and round which means he doesnt use aerotour,

    aerodrive or some other derivation of the name, fusion of aerotour and pure drive.

    I have a demo of the aeropro drive.It will be on sale here in Spain May/June.No paint job just a mix of the pure drive and the aero.Best of both worlds (if you like the pure drive) which a lot of people do.It should help with acceleration due to increased aerodynamics.Hope this helps and have a great day..

    yes i know its in another language but check it out and compare it to the PD and the AT. There is also a control prototype, which is a mix of Pure control and aero. Daniel
