This version of the Pure Drive Roddick features Cortex Active Technology for improved comfort and feel from all areas of the court. The same solid and crisp response remains making this one of the few racquets to truly combine both power and precision. Very spin-friendly from the baseline, the racquet offers lots of control despite its powerful response. Offering a more maneuverable feel compared to the heavier swinging Plus version, this one feels much more manageable on return of serve and reaction shots. At net the same crisp and precise feel rings true. Our TW playtesters found ample power to put volleys away yet all the control needed for touch volleys. The power and spin our testers found with this racquet made it very popular on serve. The power adds noticeable zip to first serves and the spin means you can be aggressive on second serves without sacrificing consistency. Note: Due to racquet stiffness, when stringing with a polyester or a co-polyester we highly suggest 54lbs as a starting point for tension.

THE FIRST DYNAMIC SYSTEM WHICH MAKES THE FRAME AND THE STRINGS INTERACT WHEN STRIKING THE BALL

A tennis racket is a frame with strings. The frame is basically static and holds the driving force of the racquet - the strings - in place. The strings are attached to both sides of the frame. Only some strings are active when struck by the ball. This means that racquets do not deliver their full potential. Babolat set out to imagine a racquet optimizing the frame and the strings - to invent a frame which permits all the strings to work together to their full potential when striking the ball.

PULLEY FUNCTION

  • The WOOFER eliminates string lock-up: the strings are free to move.
  • The whole surface area reacts on impact: with the WOOFER, more strings work together when striking the ball. The strings are interactive. This increases sweetspot size, improving forgiveness during off-center shots and absorbing much of the shock produced during ball impact.

PISTON FUNCTION

  • Increase in the Trampoline Effect: The piston function enables greater surface deformation on impact, delivering 10% extra power and ensuring that the strings retain their energy for a longer time.
  • Shock Absorption: The pistons act like a suspension system to dampen unwanted vibration.

The Active Cortex Technology reduces shock and vibration, leaving the player with a cleaner feel at impact.
