Babolat Pure Aero Rafa (2021)Regular price $239.00
Rafael Nadal's racquet of choice, the Babolat Pure Aero Rafa is here. This racquet features the same cosmetic as the one he plays with on tour. The Pure Aero Rafa features the same specifications as the 2019 Pure Aero. The driving force for the Aero series is the Aeromodular beam construction for less wind drag and increased racquet head speed. The Pure Aero incorporates Babolat’s Cortex Pure Feel to make the response a little more arm friendly at contact. The tech comes from a partnership with SMAC, a company with long standing ties to the aerospace industry specializing in shock and vibration reduction. SMACWRAP, a thin viscoelastic rubber has been placed at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions of the Pure Aero for outstanding feel and comfort. Babolat added the Carbon Ply Stabilizer to improve stability. CPly Carbon was developed by Chomorat, a French industrial company, and added above the throat of the racquet for more precision and stability. FSI Spin incorporates an open string pattern with oblong shaped grommets for easier access to spin while the established Woofer grommet system enhances the interaction between the ball and strings. The Pure Aero Rafa is just over 11 ounces strung, 27 inches long, and features a 16x19 string pattern. Be on the lookout for the new Pure Aero Rafa RHx12 bag!
