Probably the best racket in the world over the past 20 years or so (over a number of model updates). More people have chosen to spend their money on this iconic racket than any other racket. The definitive choice for explosive power, the latest Pure Drive keeps all of what generations of players love about the iconic racket with Babolat making subtle changes upgrades that bring it a step closer to perfection.

This 'standard spec' Pure Drive (300g, 100 sq in) does a great job of balancing power and feel and has long been our go-to model for all-round playability. Due to its high level of versatility, it can be recommended to improving players for its easy-of-use, as well as advanced players looking to unleash their power from the baseline with a stable frame. Truly a racket that is "all things to all men !

So exactly what makes this Pure Drive more 'explosive'? Babolat have made additions including the HTR System - a new lay-up composition for improved High Torsional Rigidity. This means that on high intensity shots, players can expect better energy transfer leading to increased power. Also new is the addition of SWX Pure Feel - an advanced vibration filtration system designed to improve feel and sound on ball impact.

In our play tests, we noticed improvements in power, responsiveness and comfort while in other areas it continued to meet the high standards set by the previous Pure Drive.

The cosmetic is updated with a striking double effect featuring the classic Pure Drive blue, as well as a deeper shade of blue. The 'Drive' logo on the throat of the frame is mirrored giving this racket a suitably powerful cosmetic look.
