Players who crave Pure Drive power and spin but want a lighter, more mobile response will find it with the Pure Drive Lite French Open. This one features a French Open cosmetic along with the official Roland Garros Logo. The Active Cortex technology does a great job filtering out some of the harsher vibrations. At just over 10 ounces this one accelerates rapidly through the hitting zone, giving the player easy access to power and spin. At net, our TW testers found the quick response perfect for reaction volleys and quick exchanges. Doubles players or all-court singles players should love this one. Thanks to how easily this one swings, we found this one very user-friendly on serves. This versatile offering is a great choice for smaller adults and competitive juniors who are transitioning into standard length adult racquets. At 9.8 ounces strung, there's plenty of room to customize for stronger players. Ultimately, 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.
