Gold standard for power and feel. Best-in-class performance from Babolat's most iconic racket.
Updating one of the most popular and versatile tennis rackets ever made, Babolat Pure Drive (2018) appeals to players of all abilities and styles. The new Pure Drive includes Babolat's FSI Power Technology, resulting in even more power and spin in comparison to previous generations, thanks to the wide string spacing and diamond shaped grommet holes. Babolat's new Cortex Pure Feel system has been updated with viscoelastic rubber used in the space industry by SMAC, providing more comfort, more dampening and more feel. Combining the classic 300g and 100 square inch head combination, this edition of tennis's most groundbreaking frame blends power and control to create yet another Pure Drive that provides heavy-hitting potential, quick handling and outstanding all-round performance.
This version also includes Woofer and Elliptic Beam technologies and appeals to intermediate and advanced players with aggressive baseline styles who like to dictate points from the back of the court. On the professional tours, this racket is endorsed by Garbine Muguruza, Fabio Fognini, Potito Starace, Kirsten Flipkens, Karolina Pliskova, Irina Begu and Jana Cepelova.
In our opinion this new version is almost "back to the future" in playing characteristics to the original model from nearly 20 years ago. In the interim, some of the previous models had veered towards being a bit to stiff, but this one is back to the the feeling of medium stiffness. It really is all things to all men (and women) and is the ultimate mixture of power, control and feel.
