The update to the lightest member of the Pure Aero family continues to be a great choice for beginner and intermediate players that are looking for a fast swinging racquet with loads of access to spin.
For the updated Pure Aero Lite, Babolat smartly keeps the weight, balance, head size and string pattern unchanged from the pervious version. One change they do make is moving the Cortex Pure Feel dampening material to the head of the racquet at 3 and 9 o'clock. This acts to make the racquet slightly softer feeling at contact, while enhancing the racquet's feel as well as providing a little extra control. Back for this latest version of the Pure Aero Lite is FSI Spin technology which means wider spacing between the strings in the sweetspot to provide extra bite into the ball. Oblong grommets at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions create more string snapback to contribute even more to this racquet's spin potential. The Aeromodular design makes for a racquet that swings through the air with ease. Generating power and spin should not be a problem for players of almost any skill level.
A great update to an already great lightweight, spin-friendly racquet will only add to this frames appeal.
