The Babolat AeroPro Drive GT (Graphite Tungsten) Plus is the longer length update to one of the most versatile racquets on the market today. GT technology adds a hybrid of braided carbon fibers and tungsten filaments throughout the entire racquet. Tungsten strengthens the frame to reduce torque for greater precision (Babolat claims 26% more precision compared to the previous Aeropro Drive). Babolat continues to utilize the Cortex vibration filter at the top of the handle. Cortex is used in several of Babolat's players racquets to enhance feel by cancelling only the 2 highest vibration frequencies. Only those frequencies that enhance feel are permitted to pass through the Cortex filter.

Babolat has kept the specifications on the new Aeropro Drive GT Plus virtually the same as the previous generation Aeropro Drive Plus Cortex. Added pop from the extra 0.5 inch length. The Aeropro Drive GT Plus will still appeal to a very wide array of players, especially for those looking for a slightly more flexible, spin-friendly alternative to the Pure Drive. One of a few racquets that works well at the net, as well as the baseline.

Playing at the net with this racquet allows the user more precision on volleys, very spin friendly. A joy to use and play.
