Babolat Pure Drive is a best seller and for all the right reasons. This versatile racquet has the perfect blend of power, spin, and control. The swingweight is lower on this stick compared to the hugely popular Babolat AeroPro Drive used by Rafa, which makes it a little less demanding on some of those tough shots, where you do not get in perfect position.
Pure Drive is best suited for players that are looking for not just power, but also want some extra control. Players at the 3.5 NTRP level and all the way to pro level can use this racquet. Li Na and Julia Goerges are examples of two pro players using this racquet.
Li Na was the French Open winner in 2011 using this racquet and if that Grand Slam is your favorite, the Pure Drive can also be found with a customized paintjob that features the logo of Roland Garros and is named Pure Drive French Open.
This racquet features the Cortex active technology, which reduces the shock and vibration. GT Technology adds more Tungsten at all the right places of the racquet, which gives more power. The Woofer technology adds to ball pocketing, which increases the sweet spot and is more forgiving on off-center shots.
