With its light weight and fast feel, the Drive Max 105 is ideal for smaller adults, strong juniors and developing players who want a nice balance of maneuverability and stability. It's also not a bad option for the doubles player who wants a speedy weapon for finishing points at net. From the front and back court, the 105 square inch head provides a comfortable platform for making clean contact with the ball. Given how smoothly this one whips through contact on groundies, our TW playtesters had no problem cranking up the pace and spin. We were especially impressed by how easy it was to control the power. At net the maneuverability shines, making this one a great option for doubles players or the attacking single player. Thanks to the very manageable weight, there is also easy spin and pace to be had on serves. Best suited to the 3.0+ player who wants a comfortable racquet that offers easy access to spin and power.

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.

PULLEY FUNCTION

  • The WOOFER eliminates string lock-up: the strings are free to move.
  • The whole surface area reacts on impact: with the WOOFER, more strings work together when striking the ball. The strings are interactive. This increases sweetspot size, improving forgiveness during off-center shots and absorbing much of the shock produced during ball impact.

PISTON FUNCTION

  • Increase in the Trampoline Effect: The piston function enables greater surface deformation on impact, delivering 10% extra power and ensuring that the strings retain their energy for a longer time.
  • Shock Absorption: The pistons act like a suspension system to dampen unwanted vibration.
Cortex

Babolat's Cortex shaft vibration dampening system is designed to offer greater comfort during play. Available in two versions, the Cortex system used in the Pure series of racquets reduces harmful racquet vibrations without filtering out the feedback required for feel. The result of filtering unnecessary vibrations results in what Babolat calls a "pure feel." The Cortex system used in other Babolat racquets filters and dampens for maximum comfort.

Elliptic Geometry

Babolat's Elliptic Design promises no twisting, no bending and no added weight to your racquet. It provides:

  • Greater resistance to torque and flex (+20% compared to a traditional frame design) with no added weight.
  • Power with exceptional maneuverability.
