The Racquet that put Babolat on the map but with more reach; The Pure Drive Plus. This Power Oriented racquet has a comfortable head size, beam width and weight; making this one of the best racquets for all levels of play. Unique to this frame we have an extra half inch resulting in better reach and extra leverage. This racquets frame allows for easy generation of Power for Groundstroke and Serves while still remaining stable enough to come play at the net.
The playability for this racquet cannot be said enough; it is extremely comfortable through all kinds of strokes. The special part of the Plus model can really be felt on serve and during rallys. The racquet itself is already very forgiving but with the extra length serves have more leverage. I felt the extra length the most in play when hitting groundstroke; I was able to be a bit out of position but still get solid contact for my returns. The comfort is already great, but the extra length is a huge Plus
Some call it the definition of power. You will call it your unfair advantage. We call it the Pure Drive.
Babolat launched the Pure Drive in 1994 and quickly established the benchmark for power. With every subsequent model, we’ve innovated and Evolved to meet the demands of the game. It’s no wonder the Pure Drive is one of most popular and versatile racquets in the world. The 10th generation of the Pure Drive takes your game to the next level with point-ending explosive power and increased feel.
You’ll love the Pure Drive if you’re looking for the perfect balance between power and feel on every shot. The long body of the Pure Drive + offers even more power.
