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?

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

yes, i haven't the slightest clue why the pure drive is so popular.

so what you are saying is that moya for example has no skill? i dont think i agree with that, but ok. what about pure control?

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

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.

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.
