Re: Anybody ever played with a babolat pure drive plus 2012...
Hi, as i remember it was strung at 54 mains and 51 crosses. I don't remember exactly the string , but it was some co-poly string.
You will have to give it some time to like it. You can't change the racquet and like it from the very first game you play.
I only had it for about 4 games so it didn't give me any elbow problems. I know Babolat frames are stiffer that Wilson or Head, but the arm problems usually appear because of the string type and the tension you string it. The higher the tension, the bigger the chances of arm pain.
If you feel pain in the arm you can decrease the tension of the string, or you can go for a multifilament string, which is more arm friendly than nylon, poly or co-poly strings.
Hope that helped .
