Stringing information for :

Once again, the revolutionary player's racquet has upped the ante. Offered in a new vibrant blue color while adding GT (Graphite and Tungsten) to the Pure Drive, this offering provides an even more solid and stable feel to this already proven racquet. Graphite and tungsten added to the frame provides a crisper, more solid response. Include this with the successful Cortex for minimizing vibration and the Woofer System that cushions the impact of the ball on the strings, and the result is the most solid Pure Drive we've had the pleasure to hit. Our team found this edition of the Pure Drive to offer that signature combination of power and control from the baseline. With plenty of access to spin we could take a healthy cut at the ball while keeping it inside the lines. At net, this stick provides good punch with excellent maneuverability. A very versatile racquet when it comes to serving, there is ample power with plenty of spin and control on tap. A racquet that offers so much for so many, it's easy to see why this stick is so popular from the pro level on down. A great choice for the 4.0 + player. Note: Due to racquet stiffness, when stringing with a polyester or a co-polyester we highly suggest 54lbs as a starting point for tension.

Racquet does not come with a cover.
