Tennis Racquets

The Babolat Pure Aero Rafa Collection

Babolat released the Mallorca-inspired “Rafa” design a while back and now they release the rest of the Babolat Pure Aero Rafa collection.

The Babolat Pure Aero Rafa collection are identical racquets to the 2019 Pure Aero. There have been no updates in terms of layup (what’s inside the racquet) or mold (the racquet shape). But the paint job is exciting enough to generate interest and it must have been a success among Rafa fans. Included in the Babolat Pure Aero Rafa collection are two new racquets (Team and Lite) and a few racquet bags.

Team and Lite are the way Babolat labels their lighter options when it comes to their racquet lines. Check out the whole Pure Aero Rafa collection on Tennis Warehouse or Tennis Warehouse Europe.

Babolat Pure Aero Rafa bags

They offer racquets bags in 12, 6, and 3 (backpack) racquet format. There is no denying this bag stands out and I must say that the Babolat bags are some of the best on the market when it comes to branded bags.

If you want to look at more discreet tennis bags, I recommend Cancha or Geau Sport.

Keep in mind that the Rafa racquets are relatively stiff and not recommended for players with tennis elbow or arm issues. If you suffer from anything like that, check out my content on arm-friendly tennis racquets.
