As the fifth generation, the Aeropro Drive Plus 2013 has big shoes to fill. Babolat brags that this version is "truly a lethal weapon." Players will enjoy, as they always have, the power and amount of spin they will generate with this racquet. Due to the swing weight (326) and balance (5 points head light), those with full strokes will notice the power. By keeping the Graphite at the 3 and 9 o'clock position, there is less torque and more stability in the head through harder hit and off centered shots. The added length will provide players with more reach on volleys and serves. Still a very stiff frame, the newly advanced cortex system makes up for the harshness that normally comes from a stiffer frame. Designed to give a smoother feel, it stretches into the under grip, which will give players a truer ball feel. Baseliners and net rushers alike will love the maneuverability of this racquet, which makes it very fast and easy to swing.
