Featuring the official Roland Garros Logo and accented subtly with the colors of the French Flag, this hugely popular racquet gets a French Open makeover! Even the grip, colored in clay red, conjures up images of the legendary dirt. Suitable to seemingly every playing style, the Pure Drive blends power, spin and a crisp and precise response. When strung with a string like Babolat Xcel the Pure Drive offers superb power, a comfortable feel and a very forgiving response. With a soft and powerful string, the racquet is perfect for stronger beginners through intermediate players. Add a co-polyester string like Babolat RPM Blast and the racquet is perfect for advanced players looking to add tons of spin and control to powerful shots. At net the racquet feels extremely fast and mobile. A popular choice with both ATP and WTA doubles players, the Pure Drive offers crisp precision to go with its power and mobility. Babolat's Cortex Active Technology updated the response for a cleaner feel, and our TW testers found surprising comfort from this one. All in all an immensely impressive racquet that fits almost every playing style and level. Just like previous versions, this one will be just as effective tearing up club and park competition as it will at the collegiate and pro levels.

Note: Due to racquet stiffness, when stringing with a polyester or a co-polyester we highly suggest 54lbs as a starting point for tension.
