Babolat's popular Pure Aero series, now in its 7th generation, has been updated with additional control and comfort where this model is suitable for passionate juniors transitioning into a full-size frame or adults looking for an easy-to-swing, spin-friendly frame.
The headsize at 100 square inches provides a blend of control and power with a forgiving feel. Coupled with the headsize, the open string pattern has a lively feel with easier access to spin. The weight being quite light at 9.5 ounces (unstrung) favours enhanced maneuverability granting easier general movement for comfortable net-play, serves and quick returns. Its head-light balance (unstrung) increases your ability to move the frame quickly, an important factor in generating power as well as being conducive to fast movements at the net for game-changing volleys or being able to swing fast for greater spin generation. The beam thickness enhances and optimizes the stability of the frame for greater energy transfer and power across the string-bed, something more common in the 100 square inch racquets of the modern era being developed for spin and power.
Babolat has added their new NF2 technology that uses flax inserts strategically located in the frame to allow for optimal shock absorption and enhanced playability. FSI Spin has been updated with tighter spacing between the strings for a greater degree of control potential.
This generation of the Pure Aero series continues to improve upon a successful spin-oriented frame.Headsize: 100 sq. inches / 645 sq. cm
