Andy Roddick's racquet of choice the Pure Drive Roddick Plus brings huge power and spin from all areas of the court. A perfect option for the player who likes to hit a big serve and follow it up with powerful groundstrokes, this racquet will help you hit a very, very heavy ball. The extra length provides a higher swingweight for more power and more tip speed for even more topspin and slice from all areas of the court. At net this racquet feels rock solid. Both feel and comfort are improved from previous versions thanks to Babolat's Active Cortex technology. Our TW testers found ample control for touch volleys and crushing power when looking to put the ball away. The massive spin and power on serve combines with the crispness at net to make this one a very impressive serve and volley racquet. With this version of the Pure Drive Roddick GT, Babolat have improved upon an already impressive racquet. Best suited to stronger players and/or those with developed technique. 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.
