    Ok, so I'm demoing these two.....

    Looks: Let me say that the wilson is hot stuff, I love its colors and looks.
    I always thought the Babolats were a little ugly withe the colors but
    I could live with it, Id still rather have the puredrive blue then the Aero
    yellow.

    Feel: Wilson is very very solid feel, its very stiff. I feel like i could chop down
    trees with it. The babolat, after holding the wilson feltl ike a feather.
    You can definitely swing that baby with some speed.

    WILSON: Day 1, I strictly played with the ncode 90 with no dampners. At first the weight didnt bother me. The swing weight is actually comparable to my TT worrior OS. I was having little trouble with my grondstrokes, alot more dinks. It wasnt easy to create alot of raqcuet head speed, im not a very big guy. What I was able to do was to rely on the weight of the racquet to create the power. If hit right, it can really hit some heavy balls. The volleys were a joy, even half volleys. It just feels good to come to the net. Serves...well, it was mixed experience. I was hitting flat bombs but sometimes the spinner was off. Once again, most likely i needed to be better aquainted with the weight. The bakhand was good, I really liked slicing with it. I use a almost western grip, but i would have liked more semi western for this raquet to drive through better because in the end, this is a control stick.

    BABOLAT: Day 2 coming later today.....

    The first question is: Why are you demoing two racquets that are as different as night and day?

    Because if you're interested in one, you shouldn't be interested in the other.

    When you're buying a car, you don't test drive a Porsche 911 and compare it to a Lincoln Town Car, do you?
