BABOLAT PURE DRIVE TEAM RACQUET
This is the heaviest racquet of the Pure Drive range and is a true mix of power and stability. The Tour+ model offers 11.1oz (315 grams) of weight and the balance (12.4in/31,5cm) is more in the shaft, offering power and stability to all players who have a solid physical level. Being very stiff (74Ra), this racquet will deform very little at impact, but will be able to reproduce a maximum amount of energy to allow you to create punishing shots! The result ? This is a powerful racquet that will allow you to generate heavier shots in order to easily move your opponents around. This material comes from the aerospace industry. The SMACWRAP was integrated with graphite in order to reduce vibrations and optimise comfort. The 16 x 19 string pattern is provided with FSI technology (Frame String Interaction Technology) and is tightened to increase string reactivity during impact.
The longer 27.5in (70cm) racquet will provide more power thanks to the lever effect. Indeed, this will assist you when hitting a 2 handed backhand or serving. However, this racquet will provide a weaker level of manoeuvrability compared to racquets at a 27in / 68.5cm length.
Type of Player:
- Expert level players who are physically strong
- Aggressive baseline players who like to dictate points
Cortex Pure Feel: Babolat and SMAC (French Aerospace Company) developed the SMACWRAP material, used in the aerospace industry to reduce vibrations. This material integrates graphite in the frame of the racquet in order to reduce vibrations at impact point, obtaining a soft sound and exceptional feel.
FSI Power: The string pattern associates grommets in the shape of a diamond in order to gain power and easily hit the centre of your racquet.
GT Technology: The high density carbon fibre will bring optimal resistance for more power and control.
Elliptic Beam: The elliptical form in the throat of the racquet optimises resistance to torsion for more stability and more controlled and powerful shots.
