Racket Review: Babolat Pure Aero VS Tour

Babolat Pure Aero VS Tour

We test drive the Babolat Pure Aero VS Tour

The Babolat Pure Aero VS Tour was included in tennishead's 2017 racket reviews for advanced players. The racket is attractive to many, given that Rafael Nadal’s racket is within this range, and it doesn't disappoint.

Jem and Howard both tested this racket complimenting the classic two-tone black and yellow look with there being little change to the appearance over the years.

The Aero VS Tour, which has been specifically designed for players who need to control their power with spin, ranked well with Howard as he said, “I was able to hit plenty of spin with enough control to match it.”

Jem agreed and added that there was consistent use of effortless power. He said: “With such a large sweet spot in place controlling the ball was easy!”

The chunky feel of the racket made it surprisingly solid at the net as both players were rather impressed with the crisp feel on their volleys.

With such positive feedback on this racket it’s hard to recognise a negative point, but at an unstrung weight of 320g the Aero VS Tour is rather heavy. For those after a lighter version look at the rest of the Pure Aero range.  

Tennishead's 2017 advanced racket reviews were published in the April edition of the tennishead digital magazine.  Download the tennishead magazine app for free to read the reviews in full.
