The 2018 Pure Drive 26 inch junior racquet is consistent with the other Pure Drive racquets in the 2018 line, as far as technology goes, but offers a shorter length of 26 inches. It still features FSI Power Technology (diamond shaped grommet holes and a more open string spacing allowing for enhanced power), a redesigned paint job, and a more minimalistic aesthetic. This time, the Cortex system is built into the racquet (now called Cortex Pure Feel). A key factor of this technology is that it will allow you to get better control on each hit through naturally enhanced feel. Much like the 2015 version of this racquet, it features Woofer Technology, designed to bring the user optimum control with every shot. The Pure Drive family of racquets have been very popular with tennis players, and the newest model is sure to continue the trend of high quality and popularity that Babolat is known for. This racquet comes pre-strung. Final Thought: This is a great racquet for competitive junior players or those who simply want to have a good frame! The lighter weight and shorter size compared to the adult versions will assist those who need an easier to move frame!
