    Adjusting to racket's potential

    Hi! I'm a 4.5 player and throught my tennis adventure I played with all kinds of sticks - Pure Drive, Pure Aero, Prince Textreme Tour 95, Wilson Blade V8 104 and even Artengo TR990. As you can see, there are sticks from both ends of the spectrum. As a player I started from having very defensive...

    Babolat Pure Aero Plus - Spin Racquet?

    I recently purchased a Babolat Pure Aero Plus racquet to replace the Wilson Steam Spin racquets I had been playing for a number of years. My research led me to believe that this racquet would produce similar spin, but not break strings as often as the open string pattern Steam racquets did...

    what racket weight for 13 year old boy

    hello everyone, I was wondering what sort of weight I would want in a racket. Ive been playing for 3 years and I am quite experienced and I hit lots of loopy topsin balls from the baseline. I'm currently using an exone 100l but I tried an old aero pro lite and it completely changed my...

    Auxetic Extreme MP Vs PA 2023

    What are your thoughts on the two rackets? Personally feel that the EMP produced a crisper response but was a bit jarring outside the sweet spot but the PA had a more diluted sweet spot that had an ok response across the board. Also felt that the PA might be producing slightly more spin.

    Pure Aero Poly/Poly hybrid recommendations?

    I'm stringing up a Babolat Pure Aero and looking for a softer, slick cross string to give a bit more comfort, energy return and less of the "strings scraping" feeling with my hits. Though I am a fan of Poly/Multi on my Head rackets, I prefer the feeling of polyester on the Aero. I normally do a...

    Which Wilson Blade?

    I'm trying to decide which Wilson Blade to get. I demoed the v8 16x19 and enjoyed it, although it felt heavier than what I usually use. I think I'd get used to the weight quickly though. I've heard good things about the 18x20 models and the v5, so I'm considering those. I've also demoed the Head...

    Overwhelmed by strings

    I've dropped hours over the last couple days combing through the forum trying to figure out what I should go with but I feel further from a decision than when I started. About me: -3.0 making progress towards the next level. 3 months with 1:1 coaching which is making a big diff -String breaker...

    Carlos Alcaraz - Pure Aero - String Spacing more like the 2020 Pure Aero VS or 2022 Pure Aero 98?

    Does Carlos play with a string spacing of the 2020 Pure Aero (more open string pattern of the 16x20) or the 2022 version of the Pure Aero 98 (16x20 still but slightly tighter string pattern)

    Babolat old and new grip mold.

    When I was around 10 years old I got my first ever adult size racquet which was the Babolat APDO in 4 1/4. So a decade later, I tried the PAO in the same size and noticed that the grip/handle wasn’t the same as the OG. Till this very day I till love the handle mold of the APDO. The question I...

    Pure Aero 2019

    I may be late to the game, but I bought a Pure Aero not too long ago in 2020 and so far, it feels too pushy. It does not feel solid enough compared to the aero pro drive of 2010. It feels very dampened in my opinion, which I guess to me is hard to control. Any customization tips y'all can think...

    Grommet weight question

    My normal racquet is the 2016 babolat pure aero but I have a pure aero lite that I want to add some weight to to bring it up to the normal pure aero spec. Unfortunately the grommets on the racquet are pretty beat up so I want to order a new set to replace them. I don't really like the look of...

    More personal story...

    Hey guys. Some backstory is that I’ve played with Wilson racquets since I started my tennis journey in 2006. I was the definition of a Wilson purist, joking about babolat racquets and saying they were trash and for beginners. Then I started thinking about racquets. I began using a clash 98 and...

    Is there actually gonna be a pure aero 2020?

    Is there really gonna be a pure aero 2020? I was watching a TW racquet review of yonex, and somebody mentioned a comparison of the 2019 pure aero to the 2020, and TW responded with when it’s closer to launch. What!?

    Pure aero 2019 vs. Clash 100 tour?

    I am currently demoing both racquets. As of now, I enjoy both very much. They feel very similar weight wise, both have spin and power. What I want to know is should I continue using both or try to stick with one or the other?

    Hello everyone. I am pretty new to tennis and am not stringing my own racquets yet (but hope to in the future). After having a handful of racquets restrung, I have noticed that different professional stringers are stringing my same racquets differently, with respect to tie off locations and...

    Babolat makes the game easier?

    I read something similar to this, but don't know where, my experience is the same, I have a Wilson Pro Staff RF97, and I have been using it for a year, last week I tried the Babolat Pure Aero 2019, and everything was easier, the racquet has more maneuverability, power, spin, and because it is...

    Babolat Pure Aero question

    So I recently visited Europe and I got quite confused at the pricing of the Pure Aero rackets here. I found that the Pure Aero RG2017 racket was 120 Euros, while the normal Pure Aero (green) went for 200 Euros! Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't they essentially the same rackets, but with a...

    Babolat PA vs PAT

    Hello, Racquet newbie here--I'm trying to narrow down my list of racquets to demo. Could you help me understand the differences between the Pure Aero and Pure Aero Tour? 1) Given that the PAT is heavier (11.9 oz to 11.3 oz strung) but has essentially identical swingweight (PAT is 328 to...
