This post will look at the racket specs of both tennis rackets so you can see how they compare to each other.
Babolat Pure Aero vs Wilson Ultra 100
For this racket comparison, we will compare the Babolat Pure Aero 2023 (V7) to the Wilson Ultra 100 V4.

Head Size and Racket Length
Both the Pure Aero and the Ultra 100 have a 100in head size and a 27in racket length.
Strung Weight, Balance, and Swing Weight
Both tennis rackets have the exact same strung weight (318g (11.2oz)) and head light balance (4pts HL).
However, the Ultra 100 (317g) has a slightly lower swing weight than the Pure Aero (322g) so the Ultra 100 should be easier to swing but the difference between the two rackets isn’t that large.
The Babolat Pure Aero (65) has a lower stiffness rating than the Wilson Ultra 100 (70) so it should be the more comfortable of the two rackets to swing with.
However, I would not consider either of these two tennis rackets to be particularly arm-friendly.

Power and Control
Both of these tennis rackets are low to medium powered frames with the Ultra 100 being the more powerful of the two.
However, the Ultra 100 may have more power but the Pure Aero definitely has more control and in my opinion, has the better balance between power and control.
As it is the more powerful of the two rackets, it’s no surprise that the beam width of the Ultra 100 (24mm / 26.5mm / 25mm) is thicker than the beam width of the Pure Aero (23mm / 26mm / 23mm).
Both the Ultra 100 and Pure Aero have a 16×19 string pattern so they will help you to generate more top spin on your shots.
In my opinion, both rackets have a nicer design but I prefer the design of the Pure Aero 2023.
If you are a beginner/intermediate tennis player then the Wilson Ultra 100 is definitely the better option for you as it has a lower swing weight and it is much easier to generate power with the Ultra 100 when compared with the Pure Aero.
However, if you are an advanced tennis player then the extra control you get with the Babolat Pure Aero will make it a much better choice for you.
