New 2013 update to the lightweight spec based on Rafael Nadal's AeroPro Drive, the 2013 Babolat Aeropro Team features an incredible new graphic and a refined Cortex Dampening Interface for even better feel. Continues use of GT technology (Graphite Tungsten) which adds a hybrid of braided carbon fibers and tungsten filaments throughout the entire racquet.
Babolat has kept the specifications on the new 2013 Aeropro Team virtually the same as the previous generation Aeropro Team GT.
The Aeropro Team is ideal for a player looking for a lighter, more maneuverable alternative to the standard Aeropro Drive GT. Slightly more flexible, spin-friendly alternative to the Pure Drive. For Optimal String Performance Babolat Recommends:
Midwest Sports only ships Babolat products to domestic addresses in the U.S. and U.S. Territories.

Tungsten strengthens the frame to reduce torque for greater precision (Babolat claims 26% more precision compared to previous Babolat frames). 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.
