Arthur Fils is one of the biggest upcoming French champions in tennis. His aggressive game and solid temperament make him a contender to win many titles as he has already clinched a maiden ATP crown this year.
Arthur Fils plays with the Babolat Pure Aero VS racquet.
Arthur Fils Racquet Specs
The Babolat Pure Aero VS, which is now called The Pure Aero 98 is a 98 sq in racquet that is meant to offer more control than the standard Pure Aero.
It has a smaller head size, a thinner beam and a tighter string pattern (16×20), to provide more control and feel.
The racquet of Arthur is 340 grams while strung, which is quite the average for the pro players in terms of weight. This will help him get more stability and more power on the swing since he adds lead tape under the bumper guard.
|Head Size||98 sq in|
|Strung weight||340gr / 12.0oz|
Arthur Fils Racquet Strings
Arthur strings his racquet with the Babolat RPM Blast strings at 22-23kg (49-51 lbs) depending on the court conditions.
The RPM Blast is a famous string used by the likes of Nadal to get spin and control.
In addition, the string maintenance and durability of this string are amazing. However, the only issue is the dead and firm feeling you get.
Can You Buy Arthur’s Setup?
You can still get the Pure Aero VS racquet, even though Babolat is pushing their new Pure Aero 98, which should be similar.
As for the RPM Blast, there are everywhere and we recommend judiciously choosing your gauge depending on the level of control/spin you want.
