Babolat AeroPro Drive GT Tennis Racquet

Babolat AeroPro Drive GT - The choice of Rafael Nadal!
Description
The Babolat AeroPro Drive GT (Graphite Tungsten) updates Rafael Nadal's racquet by adding 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.
For Optimal String Performance Babolat Recommends:
  • Durability: Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour
  • Playability: Babolat Xcel
  • Hybrid: Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 16 - Xcel

Midwest Sports only ships Babolat products to domestic addresses in the U.S. and U.S. Territories.

    As Great as Rafa

    This is a monster racquet with a supreme balance between power and control. I coveted this frame for a year and got it as a Christmas present, one of my best gifts ever. The right string and tension put an end to tennis elbow and a sore wrist. This is the best racquet I have ever owned, and it has solidified my position as the Nadal of my weekly group of tennis pals. Buy it now.

    Fantastic

    I've been playing Tennis for a long time, and played with Head and Wilson before. Not long a go I tried my friends Babolat, what a different. I purchased the new AreoPro GT plus and can't be any happier. My game has improved significantly. I recommend it to serious Tennis player. You will be able to place the ball exactly where you want it.!!!!!

    Nice racquet

    I received the racquet in excellent condition, works very well, just as I have expected. Only problem is that the original shock absorber wasn't installed. I have had this happened to me before, so I wrote a note with my purchase. When I received my strung racquet,, I still did not get the original babolat shock absorber. I guess it's a price to pay for mail order. I will have the original shock absorber if I buy it locally in the store.

    Great Racquet

    Good choice; after trying some Head models, an Aero Pro Team and a Pure Drive GT (my sons' ones) I am loving this racquet & with the RPM Blast 16G strings my spin improved - keeping in mind that a fast swing is needed to get the best of it. I also bought the six racquet bag with it, very nice piece at a very good price - good deal. Good delivery timing too, cheers. MG

    Amazing spin and maneuverability are this frames strengths. Topspin and slice, on both groundstrokes and serves, are easy to control. I strung mine with full poly at the bottom of the tension range and it raised my game. This frame is on the stiff side though. You might want to play around with different strings to find your comfort level.
