Babolat Pure Drive Plus Racquet

Babolat Pure Drive Plus

Pure Drive Plus is the extended version of Babolat Pure Drive. You get an extra .5 inches added to the length of the racquet. The head size is still 100 square inches and the weight is almost identical. Several pros are using Pure Drive Plus including Julien Benneteau and Sara Errani. The extended length opens up the door for adding some power to your strokes, but spin is still easily produced just as with the standard Pure Drive.

This racquet provides a good feel and is very maneuverable making approaching the net a viable option, or you can just stay on the baseline and produce powerful groundstrokes. This racquet has a perfect combination of the power that most players are looking for, but also the control that often ends up costing points at vital stages of the game.

Lots of technology is part of what makes the Pure Drive Plus a great racquet choice for anyone from club level to ATP and WTA players. You have the Cortex Active Technology that helps reduce the transfer of vibrations from the frame to the handle. You can easily spot this technology at the bottom of the frame where it intersects with the grip. GT technology is a mix of Graphite and Tungsten that is marked on the paintjob, but is integrated in the frame.
