Babolat's revolutionary player's racquet now gets updated with Cortex technology for increased comfort and a solid feel at impact. On court the racquet offers all the advantages of the Pure Drive Team Plus (lighter and more powerful than a traditional player's racquet), yet offers greater comfort thanks to Cortex. Located just above the handle, Cortex is designed to reduce harmful racquet vibrations without filtering out the feedback required for feel. The result of filtering unnecessary vibrations is what Babolat calls a "pure feel." Just like the Pure Drive Plus Team, this racquet is perfectly suited to today's fast swinging power player. Its light weight and maneuverability also make it a great choice for intermediate players looking for a spin friendly racquet that offers a nice blend of power and control. All in all, this new version of the Pure Drive Plus is a subtle, but welcome update. Players from the 4.0 level all the way to the pro tours will enjoy the playability of this one.
