Babolat adds another chapter to the game's most iconic modern player's racquet. As with previous versions of the Pure Drive, this update keeps the same easy learning curve and explosive spec profile that has attracted generations of players. Updated with Babolat's new HTR System, the Pure Drive's graphite layup has been reengineered for higher torsional rigidity, resulting in more efficient energy transfer to the ball. To help with vibration dampening, Babolat has devoted more space in the shaft to SWX Pure Feel, a thin and extremely flexible viscoelastic rubber that sits between the racquet's carbon layers. Additional features include FSI Power Technology, which optimizes the grommet system and string spacing for higher levels of power and spin.

On court, this racquet's explosive acceleration and spin-friendly targeting make it a dangerous weapon from the baseline. It also packs impressive all-court mobility, making it great for cranking winners on the run or charging into the front court and finishing points at net.

Best racket for its power category

By: on 28 June 2023
Great fun racket. Racket has lots of wow factors. Spin and power is top notch. It is more comfortable than a previous model. My serve increased speed a lot with this stick. Solinco Hyper G goes well from my experience.

Babolat has focused on and improved the comfort and stability of this 2021 version of the Pure Drive racquet. I feel more connected to the ball than with the previous version. I'm a happy man...
