Hi everyone.
It is the first time I write, if I have made any mistakes I apologize in advance to the moderators.
I am 21 years old and have been playing tennis since I was little because of the great passion that links me to this sport. I have never participated in any tournament and I have never played in a competitive way but I took some lessons when I was little and before I used to do some carefree games with friends frequently. I made the last game two years ago and now I would like to start playing more frequently but I have not a racket. My game is very simple, especially baseliner with a moderate top spin. Can you advise me which racquet would be better for me between the pure drive and the pure aero? I could also consider some other rackets.
Thanks in advance

It would be best to try out the racquets if you can. Each one will have subtle differences, like balance, how big the sweet spot feels, stiffness. In regards to those two frames (I used to teach a lot with both of them) I prefer the Pure Drive as it feels softer to me and it sprays less.

I'm also starting to consider the possible choice of the wilson blade 98 L (16x19). What do you think about it?
The 98L is lighter than both the P. Drive and P. Aero. Strung weight for the latter two are about 11.2, only 10.6 for the 98L. If you wanted to check out a similarly weighted Blade I would try the 98S. That one is almost identical in weight. It's also more solid through the ball.

agree ... 98L is a good PLATFORM frame. needs lead in my opinion.
