Babolat Pure Aero Tour

An amazing option to enhance the topspin on your groundstrokes.

If you hit the ball heavy from the baseline, you will love this version of Rafa’s racket.


String Pattern

The number of strings running horizontally and vertically across the racket. A more dense pattern (18×20) offers more stability, while a more open pattern (16×19) offers more spin, power, and feel.


Racket Weight

Generally, beginners should stick to lightweight or medium rackets (less than 11oz). More advanced players, however, should choose medium or heavy rackets (more than 11oz). (Learn more)


Swing Weight

Swing weight is a calculated by using the racket’s weight and balance. The greater the swing weight, the more power a player will get. (Learn more)

6 HL


Balance means where most of the weight is centered in the racket. Head heavy rackets (HH) offer more power, while head light (HL) rackets offer more maneuverability. (Learn more)




These are some of the characteristics of the racket you should pay attention when deciding whether this is the right racket for you or not. If you not quite sure what they mean, you can just use the "What is this?" feature in order to learn more.


Head Size

The head size of the racket influences how easy it is to play with it. A large head size (over 98) makes it easier to make contact with the shots but offers little maneuverability – which is great for beginners.


Racket Length

Most rackets range from 27 to 29 inches. Longer rackets offer more power and reach, but are more difficult to maneuver. 


Beam Width

These numbers reflect the beam width at the head, shoulder, and handle. A larger beam usually means more power, but less maneuverability.



Choosing the right strings and the right string tension is just as important as choosing the right racket. Some rackets play better with higher tensions, while others require a lower tension.

That depends on personal preference. The main difference with the tour version is the weight. If you are strong enough to be able to swing the tour version, it is definitely worth trying.
The Yonex EZONE Tour 98 is quite similar to this racket. Our video below compares the two rackets directly, so watch that for all the info we have on it.
This racket is made for players who produce topspin naturally. If you have to work to create heavy topspin, this racket probably isn’t for you. However, if your strokes are modern and fast, you could have some great success with this model.
This racket performs great on the serve, especially for kick serves.
