The legendary and ever popular Babolat Pure Drive Plus is here! Coming in at 10.6oz unstrung, standard 100 sq inch headsize, but with an extended length of 27.5 inches, this racquet is all power and big spin! Intermediate to advanced players will love the extra reach and increased racquet head speed the extended length provides; however, some players will have to get used to the longer racquet. Do you want to push your opponents around the court? Then the Plus will help you achieve this with ease. Once the racquet starts moving then it stays in motion resulting in great plow-through! The Pure Drive family of racquets has always been known for easy power and this new version does not disappoint. There are many technology updates that have been added to the 2018 model. The FSI Power technology (wider spaced string bed, and diamond shaped grommets) is added to the string bed which allows for the strings to move more freely. What this results to on the court is more power and more spin. Our players noted a much heavier ball than the previous model. In addition, the Cortex dampening system has also been updated with viscoelastic rubber (i.e. CORTEX PURE FEEL) resulting in a more muted and more comfortable feel than previous generations. All in all, our staff overwhelmingly enjoyed this newest version. Final Thought: Power, spin, and plow-through are enhanced due to the extended length of the Pure Drive Plus. Intermediate to advanced players will love the extra reach this racquet provides on the serve and volleys. If you desire power and dictating the point, then the Pure Drive Plus will fulfill your needs! "Demo today, buy tomorrow!"
