  • Head-Light: Easier to maneuver, favored by advanced players and those at the net in doubles.

4. String Pattern:

  • Open (16x18 or 16x19): Provides more spin and power but might wear out strings faster.

5. Choosing the Right Grip Size:

  • Method 1: Ruler Test:

    1. Open your dominant hand and extend your fingers.
    2. Using a ruler, measure the distance from the middle of your palm to the tip of your ring finger.
    3. Typically, measurements between 4 to 4 3/8 inches suit most adults.
  • Method 2: On-Racket Test:

    1. Hold the racket as you would for a backhand.
    2. There should be a finger's width of space between your fingers and the base of your thumb.
  • Common Grip Sizes:

    • Size 0: 4 inches
    1. Size 1: 4 1/8 inches

  1. Power and Precision

One of the most significant advantages of the Babolat Pure Drive is its perfect blend of power and precision. The racket's frame is designed with FSI Power technology, which incorporates diamond-shaped grommets and a wider string spacing for an enlarged sweet spot.

  1. Improved Spin

The Babolat Pure Drive incorporates an innovative spin-enhancing feature called the Woofer System. This technology allows the strings to work together for a longer duration during ball impact, resulting in increased contact time and more significant spin potential. Players can generate heavy topspin on their shots, making it difficult for their opponents to anticipate and return the ball effectively.

  1. Vibration Dampening

Playing tennis for extended periods can lead to arm and elbow discomfort, primarily due to racket vibrations. The Babolat Pure Drive's Cortex Pure Feel technology effectively dampens vibrations without compromising the racket's overall feel. The result is a more comfortable playing experience, reducing the risk of injury and enabling players to perform at their best for longer periods.
