With the largest headsize in the Pure Drive family, the Pure Drive 107 has built a fan base for its comfort, spin production and power coming from its generous sweetspot. This 2012 version gets improved feel from the updated Cortex system. The Cortex Active Technology, Babolat says, better filters vibrations to enhance ball feel. This forgiving racquet weighs just 10.4 ounces strung and is a an easy choice for all court singles players and doubles players alike for its light, mobile playability. With an oversize head and slightly extended 27.2" length, this racquet packs a punch on all strokes, but good feel lets players keep that power in check. Our TW testers appreciated the lively feel and spin-friendly 16x19 string pattern whether they were grinding it out on the baseline or playing aggressively and taking charge at net. The versatile Pure Drive 107 is a must demo for intermediate players looking for a forgiving, powerful response without sacrificing feel or power. Note: Due to racquet stiffness, when stringing with a polyester or a co-polyester we highly suggest 54lbs as a starting point for tension.
