This is the junior version of Rafael Nadal's racquet of choice, the Babolat 2019 Pure Aero Junior 25 racquet. For 2019, it gets some nice upgrades and a cool yellow and black minimalistic paint finish. The key aspect of the Aero series is the Aeromodular beam construction for less air resistance leading to increased racquet head speed. This year’s Pure Aero incorporates Babolat’s Cortex Pure Feel resulting in a slightly softer feel (i.e. little more arm friendly) upon ball contact. 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. 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. All of this results in a great feeling and ever popular racquet for junior players. This racquet comes pre-strung. Final Thought: This is a great racquet for competitive junior players or those who simply want to have a good frame! The lighter weight and shorter size compared to the adult versions will assist those who need an easier to move frame! Oh, the spin potential is not bad either!
