Pure Aero VS 2021

Ryebread

Professional
more hollow feeling
less stability
less power
less spin
less soul

not sure what they were trying to do with this one.
if you're going to give us an aero with more control, for an advanced player, why not also focus on stability?

wow ... I read great reviews and ordered 3 of them without a demo.
Now these reviews are totally contrary. What level of players are you guys? 4.5 and above ?

They're absolutely fine. Not as tweenery as the PA, which doesn't suit most players' games, and not endorsed by the right pro to lather up the gullible.

Needs a little lead to stabilize it, but needs it to get it up to a playable weight, anyway. You'll get along fine as long as you're north of 4.0.

It's a great Babolat feeling frame: basically a dialed in Pure Aero. If coming from something heaver or flexier, it needs weight. I added a leather grip and some weight to the head.

I think it's best in hands of 4.5+and the TW review was spot on.
 
Solid 4.5 player here. I switched this past winter to a vcore Pro 97HD from a PA Tour. Several iterations of the PA tour had been my stick for awhile. Main hitting partner got two Pure Aero VS sticks right when they were released and I hit with them quite a bit in early pandemic times. They are ok, but after several sessions I couldn't identify a single reason why I would use a VS over my PA Tour.

Anyone get this new stick for control after using Pure Aero banana yellow?
I am very surprised to read that PAVS has less stability etc than the PA
I currently use the PAT and in my opinion, the PAVS surpasses it on all plans
Better accuracy is the main advantage of the PAVS, better maneuverability too
Better at net
Power is about the same, spin maybe a little less
Feeling is much better, softer, not as hollow
Tested with Luxilon 4G it was a fantastic frame, the best in my 2020 tests !
Level 5.5

I really liked them, nice spin, maneuverable, forgiving, and not hollow as other babolats. It is a bit hard to control if you are a used to a more control oriented racquet.
