Babolat Pure Drive 2021
The 2021 update of Babolat Pure drive is here. As with previous versions of the Pure Drive, this update keeps the same explosive spec profile that has inspired a slew of generations of players. Updated with Babolat’s new HTR System, the Pure Drive’s graphite layup has been reengineered for higher torsional rigidity, resulting in more efficient energy transfer to the ball. To help with vibration dampening, Babolat has devoted more space in the shaft to SWX Pure Feel, a thin and extremely flexible viscoelastic rubber that sits between the racquet’s carbon layers. Additional features include FSI Power Technology, which optimizes the grommet system and string spacing for higher levels of power and spin.
How it feels:
On court, this racquet’s explosive acceleration and spin-friendly targeting make it an effective weapon from the baseline. It also packs impressive all-court mobility, making it great for cranking winners on the run or charging into the front court and finishing points at net.
We tried this racquet with Solinco Hyper G and Confidential at 48 lbs and Babolat RPM at 53 lbs with great success.
