With its black and pink cosmetic, the Drive Lite gets the job done and looks good doing it. Boasting a very light weight, this one is ideal for players who need a speedy racquet that accelerates almost effortlessly. We think it's great for beginners and juniors, along with being a solid option for intermediates who want an ultra light racquet. The Woofer grommet technology combines with the Cortex system to minimize vibrations and provide a very smooth and lively feel. From the baseline this racquet moves through contact with explosive speed and delivers a very accurate response. Our TW playtesters noted how easy it was to generate spin and select ambitious targets. At net the speed is doubly apparent. This one moves into position very quickly, making it great on fast exchanges and put aways. All in all the Drive Lite is a great option for the 3.0+ player looking for a light racquet with tons of spin potential and controllable power.
