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.
