Players who crave Pure Drive power but want a lighter, more mobile response will find it with the Pure Drive Lite. This 2012 version gets 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, 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.

THE FIRST DYNAMIC SYSTEM WHICH MAKES THE FRAME AND THE STRINGS INTERACT WHEN STRIKING THE BALL
A tennis racket is a frame with strings. The frame is basically static and holds the driving force of the racquet - the strings - in place. The strings are attached to both sides of the frame. Only some strings are active when struck by the ball. This means that racquets do not deliver their full potential. Babolat set out to imagine a racquet optimizing the frame and the strings - to invent a frame which permits all the strings to work together to their full potential when striking the ball.
