Summary

The Aero line is known for its easy power, its topspin potential and its ubiquity at all levels, so it wouldnt be a stretch to suggest that the Aero family has played a large role in the transformation of the modern baseline game. Spearheaded by Rafael Nadal, the Aero movement created a class of aggressive baseline tennis that has taken the tennis world by storm. The newest addition to this family, the updated Pure Aero, was the perfect candidate for one of our global playtests, and it easily lived up to its reputation. Although it carries the same moniker as its predecessor, there have been some subtle improvements to the Pure Aero, including a classy new cosmetic. This update features a slightly lower RA stiffness rating of 67, and with a relocation of the Cortex dampening system to 9 and 3 oclock, it offers a more comfortable and controlled response than the previous generation. But fear not longtime Aero users, this comfort didnt come at the cost of the effortless spin and power diehard fans have come to expect from this line. In fact, whether our testers were bashing groundstrokes or cracking serves, this version is still a lively weapon for players of all levels. Thats the beauty of this line; it doesnt matter if youre an aspiring beginner or a skilled expert, the benefits of the Pure Aero transcend playing ability and appeal to anyone looking to add a little Rafa to their game.

Groundstrokes - Score: 89

The Aero line has long been known for its user-friendly power and spin, which have made it an obvious choice for aggressive baseliners or anyone looking for a little extra pop on their groundies. This Pure Aero update features a slightly less stiff response, which provides more comfort and better feel, and according to our testers, it does so without sacrificing the power and spin players have come to expect from the line. On the red clay of Germany, Tennis Warehouse Europe tester Zśofia had a blast seeing just how much spin she could get on the ball. She said, "I was able to generate a lot of topspin for my groundstrokes with this racquet. It provided effortless access to spin — way more than Im used to with other racquets. I enjoyed the extra spin so much that sometimes I caught myself just fooling around with how much rotation I could generate. It is truly a fun racquet! I was able to get my groundstrokes to bounce really high (as a result of all the spin), and that is a real weapon on the clay."

Although this racquet was more lively than the racquets Sean typically gravitates toward, its user-friendly nature pulled him into its orbit. The Tennis Warehouse playtester remarked, "Since I was moving from my preferred dense-patterned, low-powered frame, I had to adjust to the higher launch angle and the easy power of this newest Pure Aero, but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed playing with this racquet. The massive spin potential grounded that easy power and helped me dictate play from the baseline. Although this version has a lower RA, I felt it still had the the natural power while being more arm friendly overall."

Longtime Aero user and Tennis Warehouse Europe playtester Valerie added, "The Pure Aero helped me get more spin on my groundstrokes, which I usually hit pretty flat. I could get my balls deeper in the court and really push my opponent behind the baseline. I also had great touch with this new racquet and hit nice drop shots."

As a veteran of Tennis Warehouse reviews, Chris has plenty of experience with the Aero racquet line. He said, "I quickly found my groove with this racquet from the baseline. The level of power was pretty close to my regular racquet and not too far removed from my previous Pure Drive Plus. I found a tad more feel for the ball and better control with this update compared to the outgoing Pure Aero. It was easy to transition between the two, but I feel this version has more in common with the older AeroPro Drive. I got lots of power and spin when I took a full cut at the ball. I also found enough power to dig myself out of tough situations. It was my kind of racquet, and I had a lot of fun trading groundstrokes with this new Pure Aero."

Marco, the big-hitting lefty from Tennis Only in Australia, said, "I enjoyed the massive amounts of spin I could generate on my groundstrokes with the Pure Aero. I could really get the ball moving in the air and jumping off the court."

Also testing from down under, Natasha offered, "It took me a little while to get used to the balance of the Pure Aero. It slightly affected my swing and contact point, and I struggled to get the ball out in front. Once I got the timing right I could get a lot of power through the ball with ease. As an aggressive flat baseline player, Im always trying to add more spin to my shots, and I found this racquet let me put more rip on the ball with ease. I could create better angles with better margins for error."

Volleys - Score: 82

Although the Aero family is not known for its deft touch, the volley is an area where these racquets have always gotten the job done with surprising efficiency. With the lowered RA, the Pure Aeros feel was sure to shine here. Never shy to move toward the net, Chris recalled, "The Pure Aero felt fast and easy to maneuver at net. I had a tad more touch and feel with it compared to the older model and the current Pure Drive. I liked how I could line up the strings with my intended target and get the ball to zip right to it. Any ball above the height of the net could easily be volleyed away with this racquet."

Zśofia much preferred this update to its predecessor up at net. She said, "This racquet felt stable at net, and I was able to get a lot of power for my shots. Due to the vibration dampening updates, this racquet felt much more stable than the previous version."

Sean also had no issues with the stability. He commented, "I thought the Pure Aero held its own in terms of stability at net. It was great for redirecting pace, and it left open the option for touch — a nice balance."

Natasha appreciated how nimble the Pure Aero was when she came forward. She said, "I found the Pure Aero easy to maneuver around the net. It had a great sweetspot for punching through volleys and plenty of feel for my soft touch volleys."

Adding to that, Valerie succinctly said, "This racquet was easy to volley with. It was very stable and had good touch."

"Getting stick on my volleys was easy with the Pure Aero," Marco continued. "The ball sprang off the stringbed and penetrated through the court."

Serves - Score: 87

From all corners of the globe, our testers were enjoying the generous amount of spin and pace they were getting on serve with the Pure Aero. No matter your playing style, its always nice to start a point off on a good note. The Pure Aero is as good a tool as any to get the confidence going from the first strike. Natasha found the Pure Aeros balance to be natural and smooth. She said, "I enjoyed the swingweight of the racquet, which helped me get a nice rhythm and flow in my service action. I got some nice snap on the ball and could get a nice swinger out wide."

The positivity carried into serving for Chris, who said, "I continued to feel at home with this racquet when it came to serves. My first serve had plenty of pace, and I could mix in spin as needed. I enjoyed using pace down the T with a flatter delivery and using slice to move the ball wide or into the body of my opponents. On second serves, I was able to hit with lots of pace and get the spin I needed to drop the ball on target. No complaints from me here."

Trust us; you never want to be on the returning end of Marcos big lefty serve, especially when he has a spin-friendly racquet like this in his hands. He described, "Again, the easy access to spin allowed me to get my kick serves jumping higher and slice serves sliding wider."

Zśofia found this racquet to be better suited to spin serves than flat ones. She said, "I struggled a bit with my first serves, which I like to hit more flat and heavy. I felt like I didnt have the desired control with those shots. On the other hand, the Pure Aero was perfect for my slice second serves."

Sean also found he was better off putting some extra spin on the ball to get it to land in. He said, "If youre looking for big pop and spin, this is the racquet for you. I seldom recall my kick jumping as high as it did with this racquet. I often found I had to add a bit of spin to control my first serve, but other than that, I had no complaints."

Unlike the other playtesters, Valerie was dialed in on her big flat serves. She beamed, "I love this racquet on serve, as I could hit my favorite flat first serve down the T from the deuce side very powerfully and with great control."

Returns - Score: 82

When returning serves, our playtesters noticed the same benefits they found from the baseline: easy pace, spin, maneuverability and depth. This consistency translated into more balls in play, and it underscores how deadly the Pure Aero was off the ground throughout this playtest. No matter what serve Valerie was dealt, it seemed she had all the answers with the Pure Aero. She described, "With this racquet I was able to find the right answer for any serve: big, slow or kick. Thanks to the extra spin, I could take big swings at second and flat first serves. When I was chipping back returns I found the racquet to be super solid and stable, allowing me to get enough depth behind my ball to recover quickly."

Zśofia found her confidence while returning with the Pure Aero. She said, "I felt like I was able to hit great returns with this racquet. It was easy to get the ball back deep in the court by using the speed of the serve to my advantage. The Pure Aero always felt stable, and I was confident stepping in and attacking returns."

Sean was afforded plenty of variety when returning. He said, "The swingweight was manageable enough for me to get the racquet into position, and it was stable enough to resist twisting on impact. I was impressed with how many options I had on the return: blocking, taking cuts, rolling the ball, it was all there."

Chris needed very little effort to return effectively. He explained, "The fast feel of this racquet made it a great option for returns. Again, getting pace and spin was easy. I only had to take an abbreviated backswing with the Pure Aero to redirect serves with pace and accuracy. I found enough stability on my slice and block returns to be able to relax and maximize feel and placement."

Marco had mixed feelings about returning with the Pure Aero. He said, "I found that control was slightly harder to come by on returns. When I had time to take a bigger swing at a second serve I could access more control, but when I had to rush into place I had to time the shot perfectly."

Natasha also seemed to struggle with the Pure Aeros response on returns. She described, "Returning was great for me when the ball was in my hitting zone; I found a nice sweetspot on the racquet. I struggled with control a little on swinging serves, though. I couldnt get the right feel to put the ball where I wanted it in the court."
