2013 Babolat AeroPro Drive Review

Quick Summary

It offers an exceptional blend of maneuverability, stability, and all-around playability for a wide range of improving players. This "tweener" class or "between Intermediate and Advance" levels fits a majority of players between the NTRP 3.5-4.5 skill levels.

Babolat Base-lining

As with most Babolat rackets, it helps to have a medium to long, fast swing speed to take advantage of all maneuverability in these aerodynamic frames (Aero). It can generate fast racket head speed more easily than other rackets, and actually feels surprisingly light (compared to other rackets) when you're swinging it.

The racket's ease is due to its lowered "swing weight" - which was dropped from 331 down to 316, in its current form. Also for 2013, it has been updated with Babolat's "Active Cortex" feature for more comfort on impact, it also feels slightly stiffer than previous years' models but a bit more control on mis-hits.

We also have a Review of the latest Babolat AeroPro Team and AeroPro Lite versions.
For optimal performance, we recommend you string this racket with RPM Blast and VS Gut to balance out the stiffness in the frame; this hybrid offers maximum spin and comfort. Either with RPM in the Mains for durability or VS Touch Gut in the mains for top-notch feel/touch.
