The heaviest racket available in the powerful Pure Drive range. Designed for better players who want a heavier all-round racket with a head light feel. Bring out pro in your game. Based on the best selling Andy Roddick models in a previous incarnation.
Built for the modern game and the modern player. The Pure Drive range equips players with a blend of power and spin that has stood the test of time. Going for over 20 years, the Pure Drive’s feel and response has been relished by multiple generations of tennis players – ranging from those just getting started, to tour professionals including Fabio Fognini and Garbine Muguruza.
The 2018 model retains the DNA of the legendary frame and even with a new look and design, can continue to be called the ‘blue one’. 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 Feelsystem has been updated with viscoelastic rubber used in the space industry by SMAC, providing more comfort, more dampening and more feel.
The 'Tour' is the heaviest model in the range and is suitable for advanced players requiring a stable and powerful frame to keep the ball under control even when hitting with a full mighty swing.
