With its light weight and fast feel, the Drive Max 105 is ideal for smaller adults, strong juniors and developing players who want a nice balance of maneuverability and stability. It's also not a bad option for the doubles player who wants a speedy weapon for finishing points at net. From the front and back court, the 105 square inch head provides a comfortable platform for making clean contact with the ball. Given how smoothly this one whips through contact on groundies, our TW playtesters had no problem cranking up the pace and spin. We were especially impressed by how easy it was to control the power. At net the maneuverability shines, making this one a great option for doubles players or the attacking single player. Thanks to the very manageable weight, there is also easy spin and pace to be had on serves. Best suited to the 3.0+ player who wants a comfortable racquet that offers easy access to spin and power.
