Help Selecting Racquet:Babolat AeroPro Drive / Control or Other
Unfortunately I live away from any decent pro shop or tennis equipment stores, and I phoned the local stores and neither have either of these racquets in store.
I am currently playing with an old (orange / white / black) Babolat - think it might be one of the originals, cost about $150 at the local SportsPower, came with a big tennis ball, was when they were breaking into the retail market.
I am looking to upgrade my racquets and was looking at either the AeroPro Drive or the AeroPro Control, leaning towards the control. Unfortunately I am not able to give either a test hit, so will be buying blind (I am from the Shoalhaven Area).
I am not a quite decent player and am 17. My first serve is usually flat or sometimes sliced, my second serve is topspin. Topspin forehand, Topspin Backhand (single handed), sometimes slice. I use the continental grip on volleys. Usually hit the right spot in my racquet.
I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions about either one of these, or a similar racquet for my style? I do quite like a bit of weight in my stick, and the smaller head size does not bother me (but I hate oversized heads).
Any tips about either is much appreciated!
