The new Babolat Pure Aero Team is for those who love the Pure Aero, but want additional comfort and ease of motion. Lowering the weight by a half ounce (along with a corresponding reduction in swingweight) will allow players with a little less swing speed to get Aero series power and spin. The latest version gets an update to its AeroModular “wing” shaft design, called AeroModular2, making the AeroPro series one of the fastest frames around. Woofer grommets with this new technology have been moved to the mid-section of the frame making it even more aerodynamic while also making for increased ball pocketing and trampoline effect. The Cortex system has been updated with the introduction of AeroModular2, now putting the Cortex inside the frame. This update, while still maintains its playing characteristics which, dampens “bad” vibrations while allowing the player to have maximum ball feel. A strong swingweight allows for maximum “plow through” from the baseline and uninhibited power. The last update to the new Pure Aero series is the addition of Frame String Interaction (FSI) Technology. The Pure Aero has an updated version of this technology called FSI Spin, which has a more open weave in the string bed, as well as oblong grommets for enhanced string movement. The Pure Aero Team is a little softer in flex to provide added feel, and is also available in a “0”, or 4 inch grip, perfect for many women and juniors.
