Strung flex looks like quite low compared to all other power racquets of Babolat. Anyone can confirm this?

My gf has one. I have hit with it. It is not very stiff.

From memory (I dont have "regular" pure aero anymore) It feels more flexible than Pure Aero std but I think its just a bad Babolat QC that works out for some but for those that were expected 68 69 RA not so much...

Also feels like it has more plow. Almost like they incorportaed some of that new Pure Drive 2021 tech in it...
 
For me it looks like they took all the colors I really dislike on rackets, and then just put them all together on 1 racket.. So I would skip this one if I'm in for an Aero..:(

Interesting pics. I though he used a white grip most of the time. Can't tell the timing of these other than the "2020" on the sticker on the drawer.

Remember, the model of the racquet is the Babolat Pure Aero Rafa 2020.

The photos are from the Babolat factory editorial photos on Getty. Taken this year.

I read here several times that Nadal is using no replacement grip but 2 overgrips.
This seems not quite right:
