Babolat Aeropro Drive GT Tennis Racquet Review – The choice of Rafael Nadal, the AeroPro Drive GT is a very popular racquet. Using a hybrid material consisting of Graphite and Tungsten, this racquet offers improved control with a more solid feel compared to previous versions. A good fit for baseline players, all court players and those that like to attack the net, the AeroPro Drive GT is also suitable for players from the 3.5 NTRP level all the way to the professional ranks.
The medium weight blends excellent maneuverability with enough stability to weather heavy hitting. The Aero shaft design helps the racquet cut through the air for faster swing speeds. The result is more power and spin on groundstrokes and serves. At net, the racquet feels fast and easy to maneuver. A generous sweetspot provides nice punch and the crisp feel helps with precision. With its all court performance and great fit for various levels, there are no doubts as to this racquet’s immense popularity.
This racquet is unstrung and does not come with a cover.

Jesus Rodriguez Says : Awesome racquet for the Top Spin game player
“I bought this racquet after my 2nd Head radical, and I cannot tell you how good my game has been afterwards, I have had it for about a year and a half and it seems like new every time.
The top spin that creates, and the strokes are really smooth, that I have not thought of a new racquet at all.
I use a top spin strings as well and it really helps my game, because I have a baseline game stroke and it helps the ball to keep inside the baseline even though I make a little mistake. It is light so I do not have sores on my shoulder or elbow at all, even after a 3 hour game.
I keep a tape protector on the top of the racquet since you run a ball and accidentally hit the racquet with the floor and stuff.
As I said I recommend it for a top spin player that needs control and power as well.”
DionDJS Says : Great Racquet
“I got this racket back in December and fell in love with it since our first time on court. This is a remarkable racket that adds to a players power and has a small aid with control. My game has definently improved after using this racket and i see why Rafa uses it as well. I would encourage anyone with a medium to fast swing speed and a moderate to high level of play to invest in their game by buying this racket.
Many websites say that this is recommended for collegiate level and touring players but as an aspiring recreational player i feel great using this racket. If you do not have alot of control on your own, this racket won’t help much but if you have a good amount of control of your swing, know how to apply spin and are just looking for a power boost with increased spin and speed on ground strokes, this is the racket for you.”
What Babolat Say:

The Aeropro Drive 2013 is a great fit for a very wide array of players. This new version will be equipped with the new Cortex Active Technology at the top of the handle to provide an even better solid feel thanks to Cortex material and a new handle construction. The Aero shaft is designed for faster swing speeds. The result is more power and spin.
