Stringing information for Babolat Pure Drive 107 2012 Racquets: Tension range 55 to 62 pounds, optimum 58 pounds. For best overall performance, we recommend stringing with a synthetic gut, multi-filament or natural gut string.

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.

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.
