The Babolat Pure Drive Tour updates the Pure Drive Roddick. This update continues the trend of blending power and precision that made the Roddick so perfect for big swinging intermediate through advanced players. In addition to its sleek new cosmetic, the Tour features some impressive changes under the hood. Chief among them is Babolat's FSI Technology, which raises the sweetspot and tightens the spaces between the upper cross strings. The result is more responsiveness higher in the stringbed, the place where experienced players typically make contact. At nearly 12 ounces, the Pure Drive Tour, with its firm and aerodynamic beam, is a modern player's racquet with above average stability and plow- through. Of course, as a member of the vaunted Pure Drive family, it also comes loaded with an open string pattern and some serious spin potential. From the baseline, the Tour supplies all the ingredients needed for hitting your opponent off the court. Our playtesters found it very easy to generate pace and spin with this racquet. Aggressive volleyers will find a great weapon for blocking the ball back with penetrating depth. On serves, this racquet supplies some serious pop and spin, making it a nice option for the player who likes to put some extra action on the ball. Ultimately, the Pure Drive Tour is simply ideal for those who want a lively and precise racquet that has enough mass to drive the ball with authority.
