Babolat updates the feel and string bed of one of the game's best extended length racquets. It's called the Pure Aero Plus and it gives experienced ball strikers the ability to hit a very heavy ball. Like the standard Pure Aero, this stick combines a powerful tapered beam with a spin-friendly 16x19 string pattern. What separates it, however, is an extended 27.5" length, which translates into extra pop on groundies and serves. For 2023, in addition to a softer, more arm-friendly flex point, Babolat adds comfort with NF² Technology which uses flax inserts in the handle and upper hoop to soften ball impact. Babolat also updates its FSI Spin technology with slightly tighter string spacing. The result is greater control (and confidence) when maximizing stroke speed in the service of power and spin. Ultimately, by combining impressive power with spin-friendly precision, Babolat has delivered a dangerous weapon to experienced players. The softer feel for 2023 is a nice touch.
