Comments: Demoed this several times (reviewed back in April); finally bought two about a month ago. Using
Technifibre NRG 16 at 57 lbs (2 lbs over the recommended high tension; owner of the store I go to who knows the Babalot rep
says they say 50-55 lbs to offer more power, which I do not need, I need control). With this string set-up, I'm back in love with
tennis. I can whip the ball around on a forehand with sick topspin - and make my serve dip in at the last second as well. Also has
enough touch for reflex lobs and touch volleys. The Head (Metallix 4) I was using had lots of flat-power, but little spin options -
this one has both. I'm literally telling anybody over 50 that will listen to try this "small" oversize racquet. Great Stick!
Comments: Just demo'd this racquet after nearly 20 years of Prince racquets, and the last 10 of Head. Had demo'd
Babalot before (Pure and Aero Drive) and never liked them; this one was different - played probably the best 4 hours of tennis
(both practice and Doubles) that I've had since my early 40's. Have never served better, and could whip it around on stretched-
out service returns and still had pace on the ball. Will demo again, but might have found my new stick.
Comments: Great racket with lots of power and spin.
Comments: I recently switched to the Overdrive 105. I'm a senior 4.5
player with a semi-modern technique. I play 50-50 singles and doubles. I
made the switch from 'players' rackets to lightweight rackets a few
years ago and I never looked back. I get all the power I need and better
control with a lightweight racket. I can make small adjustments in my
swing that I cannot accomplish with a heavier racket.
This racket excels at all strokes, groundies, volleys, and serve.
Especially serve return. this racket is well balanced and an excellent blend of power and
Comments: I like how you can put tons of spin on the ball.
