Babolat adds another chapter to Pure Drive Lite! At 10 ounces strung, this racquet brings the explosive speed, raw power and impressive spin-potential of the Pure Drive franchise to dedicated beginners and early intermediate players. Updated with Babolat's new HTR System, the graphite layup has been re-engineered for higher torsional rigidity, resulting in more efficient energy transfer to the ball. To help soak up the harsher vibrations of this racquet's stiff construction, Babolat has devoted more real estate in the Pure Drive's shaft to SWX Pure Feel, a thin and extremely flexible viscoelastic rubber that sits between the carbon layers. Additional features include FSI Power Technology, which optimizes the grommet system and string spacing for higher energy return and vicious RPMs (think easy spin).
On groundstrokes the Pure Drive Lite swings easier than both the standard Pure Drive and Pure Drive Team, making it perfect for less advanced players, especially if they are looking to master the mechanics of power and spin. This racquet's user-friendly mobility continues at net where it glides into position with remarkable ease, making it easier for you to spring into action when opportunity knocks. The speed is also an asset on service returns where the Pure Drive Lite comes around with lightning speed to deliver impressive power and accuracy. With incremental updates to the feel and response, the Pure Drive Lite continues to be a great option for the improving player. Did we mention the easy power and spin?
