Featuring the official Logo of Roland Garros along with a red grip to match the legendary clay, this cosmetic update is a fine tribute to the French Open. Players who crave Pure Drive power but want a lighter, more mobile response will find it with the Pure Drive Lite French Open. This one has improved feel from the updated Cortex system. The Cortex Active Technology, Babolat says, better filters vibrations to enhance ball feel. Players can swing fast with the Pure Drive Lite French Open, and the result is power paired with easy access to spin. At net, our TW testers found the quick response beneficial on reaction volleys and quick exchanges during doubles play. The testers continued to find the 16x19 string pattern to offer a lively, spin-friendly feel on serve. This versatile offering is a great choice for smaller adults and competitive juniors who are transitioning into standard length adult racquets. At 10.3 ounces strung, there's plenty of room to customize for stronger players. In stock form, this racquet is a great choice for any player looking for signature Pure Drive power in a more maneuverable package.

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