    Hi I'm just wanting some advice on what I should do but. A friend of my friend is getting at the age where his blx tour 90s and prostaffs are too heavy for him and my friend asked if I would trade my babolat aero pro drive non cortex for his blx tour 90? Should I? I was thinking of keeping the babolat because its the noncortex version and its pretty vintage.

    Basically,
    I give him $15 + babolat for blx tour 90
    Deal or no deal? :confused:

    Why would you do this? Do you use the 90? Does he understand it isn't easy to find APD gen ones? This seems like a dumb trade for both parties IMO.

    Keep your racket unless you covet what the other has.....

    There's the problem. Besides the fact that you haven't even had extensive experience with the BLX 90, your racquet IS rare stuff.

    Without the Cortex Crystals your serve will suffer.

    Well I play with the ncode 90 for the last few years but if I didn't like his racket I can sell it since it's in great condition. Is the aeropro going to be like the prostaff in the future?

    Exclusively with the 90? If you use the 90 on a regular basis or are planning to then it might be an ok trade for you. I personally think at least 3 of the same stick is a must for a competitor. Regarding the APD being as coveted as the original Pro Staffs, no, never. The PS was/is used by many of the elite and HoF players through the open era, the APD is used by Rafa.
