The Aeropro Drive Original will arguably go down as the best modern racquet of all time...here's why

I don't like it with Cortex. Agree with the topic - the original is the best one.
Cortex does reduce the vibration, I personally like that cause it is easier on the arm. This is a very stiff racket afterall. But some people like that crisp clean feel without the cortex. you really feel that POP with the original aeropro.

I just hit with the APDO for the first time and it is amazing. Solid, stable, easy yet controllable depth, great spin. What an amazing stick.

Interestingly, mine measured SW 321, rather than the over 330 stated in OP. I strung it with 1.24mm poly.

In my mind it is the best Aero ever made (ok I haven't tried the 2nd version), and one of my favourite racquets ever. Lucky I got 2 for $50. Hopefully the honeymoon period lasts forever.

Long live the APDO

2 for $50? That's a ridiculously good deal. Even if you decide to not play with them anymore and eventually sell them off, I'd expect them to fetch atleast a $100 per frame if they are in even moderately good condition.

In short, you will not lose money on it. People invest in property, I say invest in the APD Original while you still can hahaha!
