Comments: Just played with my new Pure Drive and I love it!
Comments: For many years I was playing the Pure Drive, but some years ago we ordered the AeroPro 112 for my
wife, and I tried it, and stole her racquets! Now, we have quite a lot of the 112 APs, but my wife has gotten them back. Since I have
discovered my new "love" -- the Drive Max 110. I'm a stringer and have tried a lot of different strings -- but ended up with a
string I wasn't happy with before (because it hurt my arm). But now, I love playing with Babolat Blast 1.18 (from 50 to 55 pounds
depending on the day and my mood. I am a hard hitting 2-2.5 player that is 61 and I have 3 of these racquets.
Comments: I've been demoing the Babolat Drive Max 110 for a few weeks now and have just purchased it. I am
having it strung with Topspin Cyber Flash 16g. at 54 lbs. I sure hope it plays as well as the demo did today! I am a 3.5 inter club
and USTA player. I've had a few wrist issues with other racquets but not with this one, yet. A lot has to do with technique and this
racquet seems to be very compatible with my corrected swing from my club pro. I am so excited and will report in a few months
with hopefully even more excitement!
Comments: I am a 3.5 player in my early 70s and play both singles and doubles. I am on my third 110 Babolat
racquet. I use a Head Intella string strung at 55 lbs of tension. In my hands, the Drive Max 110 is light-weight to swing but feels
substantial when I strike the ball. With just an average amount of body power, the racquet generates an amazing amount of power
on the ball. At the same time, I have the best control I've ever experienced. I have seen great improvement in both my ground
strokes and serve compared to the Wilsons I previously used. The results have been a steady display of competence, especially for
an older player, and every now and then the racquet's light weight allows me to make some "wow" shots on the run.
Comments: John (7/13) is correct -- this is an extremely comfortable racquet for older players. The balance is just
right and with a little 'over-tension' on the strings, I find that I have the control and spin ability that I like, as at 62 years old, I am
just not a power player any more and this gives us older guys a little edge!
Comments: Great racquet that is ideal for older players. It's a racket that is the optimum choice, as it feels great on
ground shots and perfect for serve and volley. The bigger sweet-spot and balance helps to make this a racquet that is just perfect.
I am league tennis player and play 3 times a week.
Comments: I was looking for a replacement for my Wilson Juice 108 BLX. I like the feel with a fantastic mix of
control and power. I have a lot of top spin on my strokes, I think this racquet is great for advanced players as well as older players.
I am extremely confident with this new one. I recommend it to anybody who likes to hit the ball hard. It's great and I love it!
Comments: Following up on my previous feedback below, I am happier with these racquets. The max is more head
light than the Overdrive although the specs say it is the same. It is more maneuverable as well. I just won our clubs longest ever
vets singles match 4-6, 7-6, 6-3 and it was nearly 4 hours because of rain interruptions. Wimbledon must be coming round soon!
Many thanks to TW for advice on best strings for the racquet, very helpful and appreciated.
Comments: I found the Babolat Overdrive 110 a bit too head heavy so I have just bought the Babolat Drive Max 110
I would expect it to be more maneuverable . Jury is out at the moment. It came with factory strung excel 16 strings and I am
for advice on the best strings/tension to get the most out of this racquet. It seems comfortable and I played better without a
dampener, but I have not, so far, found the sweet spot “luxurious." I am a low standard tennis nut from Acorn Lawn Tennis Club
Comments: Tremendous racquet for doubles. Great power on serve and overheads. Sweet volleys.
