Babolat adds another chapter to the Pure Aero Team! With this racquet, Babolat delivers a lighter, faster version of the standard Pure Aero. At 10.6 ounces strung and boasting a low swingweight, this stick moves through contact with remarkable ease, making it great for rising intermediates looking to play aggressive tennis. For 2022, Babolat updates the feel with NF² Technology which includes flax inserts in the handle for a softer feel at impact. Comfort is further enhanced by SWX Pure Feel at 3/9 o’clock in the racquet’s head. This racquet also benefits from FSI Spin Technology, which features wider spacing between the crosses for a tighter grip on the ball. From the baseline, the Pure Aero Team feels explosive and accurate. Although it lacks the stability of the standard Pure Aero, this racquet’s raw speed translates into very easy shot making. Ultimately, this update to the Pure Aero Team checks all the right boxes. The softer feel is a nice bonus. Intermediate players looking to play aggressive tennis should start here.
