Babolat pure drive

what do you think of this racquet? any of you use it? do any of the pros actually use the new versions or are they the paintjobs of the older ones?

Re: Babolat pure drive

the babolat pure drive is one of the most popular rackets on the market for some strange reason. it would actually be better to play with a plank of wood rather than a pure drive. it is a horrible racket, has no feel and it takes no skill to use

Re: Babolat pure drive

If you think pro players play with the rackets they sell us, then it's no use explaining any further.

Re: Babolat pure drive

I'd say that he loves the classical Head Prestige.

I agree and I'd say the Wilson six-one or the Pro Staff are great rackets.

Re: Babolat pure drive

its very powerful, and its way too stiff imo, which just gives it more power. If you going to go Babolat the Aero pro does have some flex and feel to it, but its very light.

No idea. The n-code is pretty good, I just got a n-code nsix-one yesterday after some demo-ing. Never played with a k-factor. Just demo both and see what fits you best.
